Survivor bans 'gendered' phrase that could be considered sexist

The American edition of Survivor has banned the term, ‘Come on in guys’. 

The ‘gendered’ statement, considered by some as sexist, was discussed by the host of the US version, Jeff Probst, during last week’s episode. 

Jeff had called the teams by saying ‘Come on in guys’ for 40 seasons but recently retired it, The Daily Telegraph reports.

However, he announced that he will no longer refer to the contestants as ‘guys’ from now on. 

Jeff asked the teams: ‘In the context of ‘Survivor,’ is a word like guys okay? Or is it time to retire that word?’ 

One contestant agreed the term was ‘uncomfortable’ and in the spirit of inclusivity, Jeff agreed to retire it.

Australian Survivor host Jonathan LaPaglia is also known to use the phrase, seemingly adopted from the American series. 

That’s led to chatter that the local edition may ban the term ‘guys’ too, The Daily Telegraph reports. 

However, Channel Ten has not confirmed there will be any change to the terminology used in the Aussie edition.

It comes after recent Australian Survivor: Brains v Brawn winner Hayley Leake revealed the show filmed two separate scenes announcing both finalists as winners. 

The 31-year-old said on TV Reload podcast, she and runner-up George Mladenov filmed the final episode in June, with both contestants shooting endings as if they had won to avoid spoilers.

Hayley explained she had no idea she had won the $500,000 prize money until an executive producer contacted her the morning before the finale aired.
