"Survivor" contestant Zeke Smith was outed as transgender in this week's episode, but the 28-year-old asset manager is determined to not let his gender identity define how he competes on the long-running CBS reality series. He said Smith, a Brooklyn-based asset manager, "is a wonderful man and I will forever be amazed and inspired by his forgiveness and compassion". "This is his second consecutive season on Survivor". "I have been through, I don't know how much therapy". This season's episodes were filmed last summer in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji. Naturally the other members of the tribe responded with outrage at Jeff's malicious speech and immediately began defending Zeke.
Varner's self-defense was not a success with other players, some of whom were in tears.
Varner issued an apology about the incident on Twitter Wednesday.
A gay contestant, Jeff Garner, in order to save himself from elimination, turned to another contestant and asked, "Why haven't you told anyone you are transgender?" It was something nobody seemed to know ... certainly not the 8 million people who do still watch Survivor.
"I realized I had just crossed a boundary", he said.
Smith praises his cast mates for standing with him and not Varner. He said he had "a complete and total breakdown" after his statement that was not shown on TV. "I don't think he hates trans people". The tribe agreed to send Varner home without an official vote, a rarity on the show. Deciderdeclared it was "shockingly ugly" while the Daily Beastwrote: Zeke Smith didn't want to be known as the "first transgender Survivor star". "It's tough with Varner", he said. Love each other", adding, "To learn how to be a better ally to trans people, click the link below. I just think he has a lot of misconceptions about trans people.
"I think he hoped others would believe that trans people are unsafe and fraudulent", Smith said.
He went on to say that the openly gay Varner is not an "ignorant bigot". Varner also is critical of what he called the "fake repeal" of HB2.
As he leaves the show, Varner breaks down in tears as the gravity of what he's done settles in: "Nobody on this planet should do what I did tonight - ever".
Speaking to Probst, Varner seemed to grasp that he'd made a awful mistake, and attempted to backtrack. When he left the business in 2014, he became "loud and proud", he said.
Adams noted the show of support Smith had received since the episode's airing.
