After 33 seasons we honestly thought Survivor was through surprising us.

But a contestant actually outing another as trans was so depraved, it reminded us there is no level of ruthlessness humans won't sink to in order to win.

See some of the others, plus injuries, accidents, and uncensored nudity (below)!

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."

jeff apologizes to zeke

Jeff Varner couldn't feel worse about outing fellow Survivor contestant Zeke Smith as a transgender man.

As we previously reported, Mr. Smith came out as transgender ahead of Wednesday's episode of Survivor: Game Changers as he knew footage of a fellow contestant outing him would air on national TV. Since then, Jeff has identified himself as the peer who tried to paint Zeke as "deceitful" for not being upfront with this personal detail. It's a moment he is NOT proud of.
