Zeke Smith Tells Rest of 'Survivor' Cast He's Transgender

SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!

Zeke Smith opened up to the rest of the contestants on tonight’s (April 19) episode of Survivor about getting outed during tribal council.

After the merge feast and back at camp, the other tribe members were curious about what happened with Jeff Varner‘s exit.

“I’ll tell the Varner story,” Zeke says. “We’re not five minutes in [to tribal council] and Varner takes it upon himself to say, ‘Zeke is deceiving you because what Zeke is not telling you is that Zeke is transgender.’ I am. It happened in a way that I wasn’t crazy about. I’m like all of you, forever hanged and forever evolved by my experience on Survivor.”

In case you missed it, Jeff was fired from his real-life job after the outing was aired on national television. He has since called the incident the “worst decision of his life.”
