Jenna Fischer, who plays Pam on “The Office,” recently got married (as did John Krasinski, who plays her TV hubby, Jim).
Congrats to them both.
If Jeff and Jenna are friends, that’s cool. I know lots of people who have had friends officiate at their weddings. It adds that extra something to their special day. Especially if the couple isn’t particularly religious, why not have a good friend speak the vows?
But if you’re simply looking for a celebrity host…why Jeff Probst?
Doesn’t his association with the whole “Survivor” program bring a lot of baggage to a wedding ceremony? I know if I had been a guest at Jenna’s wedding, I would have had visions of “tribal council” and “immunity challenge” and “getting voted off the island” the entire ceremony.
God forbid the couple incorporate any tropical colors or music!
Personally, I think there are a lot better choices if you want a celebrity wedding officiant. Tom Bergeron would be mine — funny, witty, quick on his feet in any situation.
Heck, Tom could officiate the wedding…and then MC the dancing at the reception…
