Michael Skupin is ready to talk.
Last week, the former Survivor competitor was charged with multiple counts of child pornography possession. The police found the disgusting materials after searching his computer during a Ponzi scheme investigation.
But on Friday, the reality star broke his silence about the scandalous story, telling People that he has been "wrongfully accused."
The ex-contestant said in a statement:
"I'm not even sure what to say. I'm more shocked by this than anyone. Sadly, our media doesn't subscribe to 'innocent until proven.'

The 54-year-old explained that he's turning to religion following his arrest, adding:
