This season's episodes were filmed last summer in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji.

Despite competitors Jeff Varner and Zeke Smith forging a close bond due to both being openly gay, a confrontation happened during deliberations at the Tribal Council this week, because Varner felt as though he was likely to be voted out. That's when Varner revealed that Smith is transgender - a fact he had picked up on but that most other players did not seem to know.

Zeke also took to Twitter after the episode aired in the U.S., radiating positivity and light like the attractive angel that he is. He attempted to save himself by casting suspicion on other tribe mates, including Smith.

The incident on national television left Varner expressing remorse and regret to contestant Zeke Smith, to Smith's family and friends, to the transgender community and to anyone that he offended.

Host Jeff Probst also called out Varner for outing Smith. Smith had played as an out gay man.

Smith told People that he has struggled with forgiving his fellow contestant for the eight months since the episode was taped. "As for someone else bringing it up, Zeke was fully aware someone might suspect it or bring it up and he said, 'I will deal with it as it arises'". Jeff Probst took Varner to task and reminded him he outed Zeke as trans to show he was deceptive and that doesn't align with saying he thought Zeke was out. He said he had "a complete and total breakdown" after his statement that was not shown on TV. He also spoke about his relationship with Varner on Survivor and recalled the events leading up to the tribal council.

"We don't need to vote", Probst told Varner in a Survivor first.

He hugged Smith, who said "It's OK, man".

"It robs a strong, courageous person of their power and protection and opens them up to discrimination and danger".

Fellow contestants rallied around Smith as he explained, "One of the reasons I didn't want to lead with that is because I didn't want to be like, the trans Survivor player".

Monaco also reached the last eight two seasons ago before losing to Juventus, one of their potential opponents in the semis.

"There is deception here", Varner said.

"Why haven't you told anyone that you're transgender?" he continued while looking at Smith.

"I don't think (Varner) hates trans people".

"That reasoning is infinitely worse than him outing me because it's the same one used to discriminate against, attack and murder trans people".

I think he hoped others would believe that trans people are risky and fraudulent.
