As host of Survivor , Jeff Probst is all-too-familiar with the Philippines. So, it's not surprising that news of the havoc caused by Typhoon Haiyan hit him hard. Over the last two years I've spent nearly eight months in the Philippines," Probst tells Entertainment Weekly. "Some of the nicest, hardest working and most humble people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting." He adds, "Seeing this devastation is truly heartbreaking. You feel simultaneously helpless to contribute in any significant way and grateful to be home safe and sound with your own family."
