Indeed, while Jeff Probst has taken home the statuette in the category all four years it’s been in existence, the Survivor frontman failed to secure so much as a nomination in 2012.
Probst’s snub paves the way for Dancing With the Stars ’ cheeky Tom Bergeron and American Idol ’s ubiquitous Ryan Seacrest, both of whom are nominated for the fifth consecutive year, as well as The Amazing Race‘s Phil Keoghan, up for the fourth straight time.
The Reality Show Host race is hardly a men’s club, though. So You Think You Can Dance ’s sensational Cat Deeley takes her second swing at Emmy glory this year, while Betty White, who has five Emmy wins in other categories, enters this particular race for the first time for Betty White’s Off Their Rockers.
