Jeff Varner Says 'Unedited' Survivor Footage Explains Why He Outed Transgender Contestant Zeke Smith — And Jeff Probst Reacts To The 'Surreal' Moment!

Jeff Varner says there was no excuse for outing fellow Survivor: Game Changers contestant Zeke Smith as transgender in this week's episode.

But the veteran player insists that context behind his invasive question at Tribal Council was much clearer in the unedited footage.

The 50-year-old went on SiriusXM's Entertainment Weekly Radio on Thursday and explained that he has been changed "drastically" by the mortifying incident.

Varner said he has been through "I don't know how much therapy" after getting voted off the island, and commended Smith for his repeated forgiveness.

Still, the former realtor wishes the CBS series releases "unedited footage" of the incident to reveal the moments leading up to his awful inquiry to Smith, "Why haven't you told anyone here you're transgender?"

Varner explained that he was trying to paint Smith as "deceitful," and the edited footage didn't catch the contestant saying "there is no deception, I'm not deceiving anyone" right before Varner's question "just came out."

Needless to say, the pointed question shook the entire tribe — including Jeff Probst, who was so taken back by the moment that his brain "had to rewind and play it back."

The longtime host told EW he was also outraged by the question, branding the incident as "one of the most raw and painful studies of human behavior that has ever happened on Survivor." He shared:

| Filed under: Mel BFamilyTherapyBreakups

Mel B and Stephen Belafonte

It's been a whirlwind week as news broke of Mel B and Stephen Belafonte's split after 10 years of marriage.

Despite a happy social media appearance, the songstress filed court documents on December 28 citing "irreconcilable differences" and asking for joint custody of the couple's daughter, Madison Brown Belafonte.

With reports swirling of Stephen turning to alcohol and the former Spice Girl not wanting to give any spousal support, things certainly seem a little testy right now between the two.

Sources close to the stars say this was done in effort to make sure the kids are doing alright amid the public breakup.

We'll keep you updated as we learn more about what's next for the family.
