It was love at first audition for Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski.
Fischer, who plays Pam to Krasinski's Jim on The Office, isn't sure their characters would have become the fan-favorites they are if he hadn't been chosen to play her husband.
"I was paired up with John often and I thought this was good because he was my favorite Jim," Fischer explains of the final round of eight actors – four Pams and four Jims – on Thursday's episode of The Jeff Probst Show.
"On the second day, John whispered to me, 'You're my favorite Pam. I hope you get it.' "

Winning an Emmy is no laughing matter – unless you're on one of this year's nominees for outstanding comedy series. With the same six shows nominated this year as last year, will it be a repeat for Modern Family?
The show, which stars supporting actress nominee Sofia Vergara, follows members of an extended family through their amusing trials and tribulations. It will be up against fan-favorite Glee with its relatable characters and rousing musical performances; The Office, whose absurd boss, played by Steve Carell, has just taken leave; Parks and Recreation with its hilarious antics of an Indiana town's public officials; 30 Rock, NBC's smash hit comedy with outstanding actress nominee Tina Fey at the helm; and Big Bang Theory, which is all about making physics funny.

James Spader isn't the only big name heading to Dunder Mifflin.
Josh Groban will make an appearance on the upcoming eighth season of The Office as the brother of Ed Helms's character, a cappella crooner Andy Bernard (no word on whether the Bernard brothers will perform a duet).
Groban, 30, will appear in an episode about Andy's family coming to Scranton for a visit. Their parents, it was previously announced, will be played by No Ordinary Family's Stephen Collins and E.T. mom Dee Wallace.

Steve Carell has said himself that he had trouble letting go of his Office character Michael Scott. So how will the show's loyal viewers react to a new boss ruling the Dunder Mifflin roost?
NBC announced Wednesday that Boston Legal actor and former Brat-Packer James Spader, 51, will replace Carell on the hit show.
As the CEO of Sabre, the parent company of Dunder Mifflin, "James will reprise his role as Robert California, this uber-salesman that has a power to convince and manipulate, like a high-class weirdo Jedi warrior," Paul Lieberstein, an executive producer and a series regular said in a statement.

Steve Carell will get a proper send-off from The Office later this season, sharing his final three episodes with his Anchorman costar Will Ferrell.
Ferrell, 43, will join the NBC sitcom for a guest role in which he plays a branch manager who arrives from the home office and proves just as inept as Carell's Michael Scott, Deadline.com reports.
"We found Steve Carell when he was nothing but a movie star, and we turned him into a television star," executive producer Paul Lieberstein says. "We are proud to continue The Office's tradition of discovering famous talent, and we hope that once America gets a good look at Will, they'll see what we see: tremendous raw sexuality."

Steve Carell isn't getting into the debate over who should replace him on The Office. But he hopes it doesn't end up being someone who's too much like Steve Carell.
"I think it would be in their best interest just to sort of go in a different direction and not try to do the same type of character," the actor, 48, tells Ellen DeGeneres in an interview airing Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Beyond that, he's not making any specific suggestions. "You know what," he says, "I'm leaving that to the producers."
