On today's "Jeff Probst Show," Jeff's wife Lisa Russell was his co-host and perfect match for this guy. As the production staff was praying that Lisa, an outspoken person, would be rated PG on this show, everything went as planned. This year together working on the show has been just a wonderful experience for both. When it was announced that "The Jeff Probst Show" would not be renewed; fans had a sense of loss that is difficult to get over. NBC is making one big mistake not renewing this show. In the New York time slot, the 1-2-3 punch for the afternoon includes: Jeff's show, "The Steve Harvey Show" and "Ellen." This three hours is the insurance policy of a great afternoon with lots of information and several laughs, which may include tears.
Lisa spoke about being a parent and being there for her two kids. Jeff knows what a joy an instant family can bring, and loves those kids like they were his own. Jeff's show gave viewers an insight into what makes their marriage tick. She described her role on the show. Jeff knows how to dig in and get the answers he needs to know; just as he does on "Survivor." He asked Lisa, of all the guests on the show how many guests were a pain in the ass? She replied that only one fit the bill, and the rest were just wonderful. They did admit that they shared custody of the kids. Every other week, they are with their other parents, which gives them the right amount of alone time.
In the game he plays with his co-hosts, "Who's Right?" Lisa and Jeff answered two questions, and the audience contestants had to guess who was telling the truth. One question that was asked queried as to the origin of artificial raspberry flavoring. The answer was; the anal glands of beavers, which should make anyone who ever ate anything with artificial raspberry flavor just shudder.
The next guests were stars of "Finding Bigfoot" on the Animal Planet. The guests were; Bobo, Ranae and Cliff. They gave the audience and viewers insight into the sightings and legends of this elusive creature. Ranae mentioned that she was a skeptic, but not a cynic. As a research biologist, she keeps an open mind. Bobo has been searching for seventeen years for Bigfoot and finally spotted one in a night scope. They also questioned the old film clip of a sighting back in 1967, and had plaster casts of footprints, which Cliff said he has over 350 of these. Jeff furthermore asked if they were offended by the likes of Joel McHale, who stars on "The Soup." Joel has reported clips of the cast mentioning that footprints are difficult to find and shouting out; "because they don't exist!" They know that the skeptics have been around forever and appreciate their skepticism. When analyzing the old film, they argue that a human could not have the same dimensions of the creature in this film, and it has been scientifically proven that the dimensions could not be a human in a monkey suit as skeptics would claim.
They then gave demonstrations of "tree knocks" which are sounds the creature makes. Bobo and Cliff have heard these noises and know that they are real, including a yell that Bobo recreated.
Jeff was skeptical and felt that in this age of cell phones with cameras, and Google Maps and all other kinds of video devices, there should be more proof than a 1967 film. Bobo and Cliff disagreed and told Jeff that there have been many other sightings and films. Call him whatever: Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti or a hoax, after watching this show, one can only wonder what is and is not true thanks to the information provided today on the "Jeff Probst Show."
