The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards are slated to air this Sunday, and one of the newer categories at the telecast is Outstanding Host For a Reality or Reality-Competition Program.

In the past, the award has gone to "Survivor" host Jeff Probst and … well, that's about it; Probst has won the award every year since the category was introduced in 2008. This time around, however, Probst is nowhere to be seen among the list of nominees, which include Cat Deeley, Ryan Seacrest, Tom Bergeron, Phil Keoghan and Betty White.

This year's reality-hosting heavyweights come from a wide range of television backgrounds, and each has been nominated for, or won, an Emmy award in the past. Deeley was nominated in the same category at last year's awards for her work on "So You Think You Can Dance." Seacrest has been nominated, and lost, every year since this category was introduced, though he's won two Emmys in different categories.

Bergeron has a similar story, once winning an Emmy for hosting a game show ("Hollywood Squares") but never for "Dancing With the Stars," for which he's been nominated every year. Keoghan's previous nominations in this category have never netted him the award, but the host has earned seven Emmys as a producer for "The Amazing Race." Finally, newcomer White, nominated for hosting "Betty White's Off Their Rockers," has won most of her Emmys for acting, though she once won the award for hosting a game show called "Just Men!"

We can't wait to see who takes home the award at this year's show, but in the meantime, we want to know what you think. Who should get the first Emmy for Outstanding Reality Host now that Jeff Probst's reign has come to an end?
