Survivor host Jeff Probst is officially off the market.

Probst, 50, married Lisa Ann Russell, 40, in front of family and friends at a residence in Los Angeles on Monday, a spokesperson for the couple confirmed to People.

Probst and Russell are rumored to have started dating in 2010. Russell was previously married to Mark-Paul Gosselaar of Franklin & Bash and Saved By the Bell fame. The former couple has two children together, and they share custody. Gosselaar, 38, got engaged over the summer to advertising executive Catriona McGann.

MSNBC reports that the host married Shelley Wright in 1996, only to get divorced in 2001. He went on to date Survivor: Vanuatu contestant Julie Berry, who finished in fifth place, from 2004-2008.

Probst’s talk show will debut during fall of next year, appropriately titled Jeff Probst. Meanwhile, Survivor: South Pacific were wondering where the host was when his Twitter account was silent starting on November 8, but Probst came back to say he wouldn’t be able to live tweet the last show because "I have a personal commitment that I can't break. Back next week with double the buffs...."

Now we know – he was getting hitched!
