The fellow tribe members were visibly distressed and expressed their shock that Varner would reveal such a personal matter about someone else. During Wednesday's episode, Jeff Varner used his secret as an example of deception to protect him from being voted out the tribe.
"I think he hoped others would believe that trans people are risky and fraudulent", Smith said.
Then it all hit the fan at Tribal Council, as Varner made a decision to out Zeke as transgendered! While he admits that he understands that the series is manufactured as are the situations, he is also grateful for how CBS handled everything, even if they are also catching flak for what he did.
"Let me be clear, outing someone is assault", he continued. "His composure was astounding", Probst told Entertainment Weekly.
He said he began watching "Survivor" at a time when he was dealing with both depression and transitioning. I'm arguing for my life.
In its very first season, Survivor invented the concept of reality show villain, and for 34 seasons there's been no telling how far contestants would go to win.
"I can not imagine anyone thinking what was done to Zeke was okay on any level, under any circumstances, and certainly not simply because there was a million dollars on the line", Probst toldEntertainment Weekly. "After 18 days starving and competing with me, they knew exactly the man I am, and after that Tribal Council, we all knew exactly the man Varner is".
Varner, who was indeed eliminated at the end of the episode after contestants rallied around Smith in support, has already written a lengthy apology on social media, which CBS's statement acknowledges.
In an interview withPeople, Smith says he didn't want being transgender on Survivor to be his story.
Fortunately, we have a full-time psychologist on staff who knows all of the contestants and is there to help them through any of the many things that come up on Survivor.
"Varner is saying that I'm not really a man and that simply living as my authentic self is a nefarious trick".
Varner also released an apology on Twitter, stating that he offers his "deepest, most honest apologies to Zeke Smith, his friends and life allies, his family and to all those who my mistake hurt and offended".
