The big stunner backstage at the Emmys was a comment by "Survivor" star Jeff Probst, who just won best reality TV host for the second year in a row. When asked by reporters what he thought about "Amazing Race" winning best reality/competition program for the seventh consecutive year, he said, "Maybe 'Amazing Race' should do what Oprah did and pull itself out of competition."

Moments later "Amazing Race" producer Bert Van Munster was asked by reporters if he'd do just that. He replied, "I'm going to discuss it with my committee here, but it's unlikely . . . . It was very intimidating to win for the seventh time."
