TEASED: Regis Philbin, 73, introduced Jeff Probst, 43, on Tuesday's Live with Regis & Kelly with more than a suggestion that the Survivor host (who has subbed for Reege in the past) was being groomed to take over for Philbin when he retires. "This is a guy who would kill to sit here every day," Philbin said on camera, before telling cohost Kelly Ripa that Probst "sits here and he looks at you – the whole thing is developing before your eyes." Replied Ripa: "I think a little jealousy is what we're watching unfold." A spokesperson for the Live told the New York Post after the show aired: "Regis was kidding around with a friend of the show, and it's nothing more than that."
