"Deceptions on levels Jeff that these guys don't even understand", Jeff said and looked over at Zeke.

Without voting, the other contestants decided that Varner would be sent home. "I don't think he hates trans people". I have hope for Jeff Varner. I think the response from the tribe, as it so often does, mirrors what the vast majority of society will feel. Varner asked Smith, eager to show contestants that Smith was a "deceptive" competitor.

Other tribe members expressed their outrage at his outing Smith.

Smith later opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about that critical moment on the show and explained he didn't talk about being transgender because he didn't want to be known as "The First Trans Survivor Player". "I'm truly touched, and it's been such an honor to play and to have you along with me on this journey over the past nine months. I want to launch a conversation here that elevates their humanity and their voice and their dignity".

Zeke Smith competed in a previous edition of Survivor, Millennials vs. Gen X.

On Zeke's calm reaction to the outing, Probst commented, "I was also very impressed with the compassion Zeke showed Varner".

"We cannot control the hazards we face, we can only control how we respond", he said.

"I think he hoped others would believe that trans people are unsafe and fraudulent", Smith said. They are about whether or not trans people actually have a right to exist in a public space.

Probst also commended Smith for the way he reacted to the outing.

"Zeke Smith, and transgender people like him, are not deceiving anyone by being their authentic selves, and it is unsafe and unacceptable to out a transgender person", he wrote. "There are people who know", Smith said.

Varner said Thursday he was in the throes of playing the game when he made the revelation, but that he knows that doesn't excuse what he did.

The Muslim Personal Law Board-a non-governmental body that interprets Muslim Personal Law in India-has opposed the BJP's move. He also asked party leaders to not to get strayed into giving "misleading statements".

On the contrary, he now says appearing on "Survivor" was a step toward becoming the man he wants to be.

A contestant from the hit show "Survivor" has come out as transgender.

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

"I think he hoped others would believe that trans people are fraudulent", he said in the interview.

"I think you see this tactic used a lot by politicians to pass these so-called bathroom bills, and I don't think it's a coincidence that he's from North Carolina, where the most risky of these bathroom bills was passed", Smith said.

"What's great is that nobody bought it".

"Continue", Probst urged in the cool tone of an arbiter who had moderated tribal councils for 17 years.

"Yep. I did that".

He took to Instagram to apologize to Zeke in a written statement.

"I recklessly revealed something I mistakenly believed everyone already knew. That makes me sick because it is never OK". "I own responsibility in what is the worst decision of my life".
