Jeff Probst Quitting "Survivor"?

Is Jeff Probst ready to leave the rugged life behind?

After six years in the jungle, the khaki-clad host of CBS' Survivor may be planning to grab a torch and leave the seminal reality game show when Survivor concludes its 11th season this year.

Inside TV reports that the 43-year-old Probst is going to quit once his contract is up at the end of the current installment, Survivor: Guatemala, which the Eye network debuted on Sept. 15.

Probst hinted as much in a conference call last month to hype the premiere of Survivor: Gautemala, telling reporters he was "definitely in love. More in love that I was six months ago."

"I get it now...Love is the E-ticket ride at Disneyland," the tanned one said before adding that he was tired of the road. "I want to start a family."

A CBS rep was unavailable to confirm the report.

Meanwhile, Survivor: Guatemala forges ahead tonight minus three players who have since been voted out of dueling tribes Yaxha and Nakum--fire department retiree Jim Lynch, magician's assistant Morgan McDevitt, and retail salesgirl Brianna Varela last week.

Hoping to shake things up a bit, series mastermind Mark Burnett and Probst offered up a new plot twist in the first episode by bringing back Survivor: Palau members Bobby Jon Drinkard and Stephenie LaGrossa to compete for the $1 million jackpot again.

One former contestant who won't be appearing on Survivor anytime soon however is original champ Richard Hatch, who has indicted on tax evasion charges, including failing to report to the IRS his $1 million grand prize.

Said Probst about the butt-bearing reality star: "Hatch is a very charming guy, and I enjoy talking to him. But I seriously think Hatch is delusional. The guy thinks he can beat the IRS. He's out of his mind. Fifty-seven-million people saw Hatch win a million dollars. To not declare it on your tax return is challenging the IRS. Who does that?" Hatch has pleaded innocent in the case. If convicted, he could face up to 73 years in prison and a $1.35 million fine.
