“Survivor” Contestant Outed on Television

=download (2)

Last Wednesday an episode of the hit reality show “Survivor” aired in which a contest, named Jeff Varner, publicly outed fellow contestant Zeke Smith for being transgender in an attempt to save himself from elimination.

Varner purposely tried to portray Zeke as being a manipulative liar by using his transgender identity against him. Thankfully, his fellow contestants saw through his strategy and voted Varner off the show.

Since then, Varner has been reportedly fired from his job and criticized on social media.

Smith’s attitude towards the episode has reportedly been one of optimism. The show’s host, Jeff Probst, said in an article published by The New York Times that Smith has been trying to make something great from this situation, and we wish him all the best.

As for Mr. Varner:
