One of, if not the, most popular reality TV shows in American history is Survivor. It recently debuted its 41st season on CBS.

And, after 40 years, the show could no longer retain its sanity.


Host Jeff Probst asked the contestants right away if they were OK with him using the phrase “come on in guys” as he has done for 40 previous seasons. Initially, everyone was OK with it.

But, when the tribes met for the first immunity challenge, a man married to a woman who identifies as a man and is pregnant, advocated for banning the use of the newest four-letter word to the Left-wing loons — guys.

Richard, who mainstream media is telling people is married to a “pregnant transgender man,” told Probst he had been thinking about the question and felt obligated to speak out.

“I don’t agree that we should use the word guys,” Richard said. “I fully agree that we should change it. Reality is Survivor has changed over the last 21 years and those changes have allowed all of us — all of these brown people, black people, Asian people, so many queer people — to be here simultaneously.”

Probst credited Richard for speaking up in the game, which carries a $1 million prize. As if there’s “risk” in supporting a Leftist woke agenda.

“I’m with you,” Probst said. “I want to change it. I’m glad that was the last time I will ever say it.”


If Probst really thought the use of the word “guys” should be eliminated from the show, why did he need affirmation from someone else to do it?

I’m still not clear why the word guy is “offensive.” Probst never explained that.

Perhaps because there isn’t a rationale, sane explanation possible.
