'Survivor' Contestant Calls Out Winner-Turned-Politician Nick Wilson for Voting to Pass Anti-Trans & Anti-Gay Legislation

Nick Wilson, the winner of Survivor season 37 and a contestant from the all-winners season 40, is now a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives and he’s being called out for voting to pass anti-trans and anti-gay legislation.

The 32-year-old former reality star is currently the state representative from Kentucky’s 82nd District.

Senate Bill 150 has been passed by the Republican-led legislature of Kentucky and it’s being called “one of the most extreme anti-trans measures in the nation,” according to the Courier Journal.

Provisions in the bill include allowing teachers to misgender their students and a ban on gender-affirming medical care for trans youths. Doctors would also be required to detransition children who have already begun undergoing hormone therapy or started taking puberty blockers. Read more of the provisions here.

Now, Survivor 41 contestant Ricard Foyé is speaking out against Nick, who he thought was a friend after spending time together just three months ago.

Ricard is a gay man who is married to a transgender man, who was pregnant at the time of their meeting in December. They sadly lost the baby.

“This is what confuses the sh-t out of me. I spent time with Nick Wilson in December. So kind. So sweet. Felt such a good connection that we ended up grabbing a beer & talked about my husband being pregnant (this right before we lost her) & couldn’t have felt more understood,” Ricard tweeted.

He continued, “Who the f–k was that person I met? Honestly? If you’re accepting behind closed doors but your political career allows you to disregard the actual real life people in front of you… who the f–k are you? I don’t know this man who votes against trans & gay rights. I don’t. Do you even know yourself? Everything, all this political madness, is such a f–king act and for what. F–king WHAT. We bonded over our babies being on the way, as two soon to be (3rd time for me) dads… but I guess my fam ain’t really sh-t, huh? Erasing our pic now. I’m good.”
