Survivor's Despicable Gay Republican Contestant and His Mom Apologize for His Hateful Remarks: VIDEO


In March, I posted a clip of Colton Cumbie, the gay Republican contestant on Survivor: One World spewing hateful and racist remarks at his fellow contestants. Cumbie subsequently had to leave the game because of a physical ailment but not before becoming one of its most memorable (for the wrong reasons) and disliked players.

On last night's Survivor finale reunion, Colton attempted to explain his remarks, as did his apologetic mother.

  1. If he's a representative of what gay Republicans are like, they can keep him.

  2. He'll be back - "Survivor" loves nothing more than a villain that everyone hates and stirs up that water cooler conversation. This guy annoys me beyond belief and his half hearted attempt to excuse, explain and apologize for his behavior was beyond laughable.

    If Colton is actually on the next season of "Survivor" it will be interesting to see how he conducts himself because the new season was being filmed while the current season was running. This means that (like Russell) Colton will have had no knowledge of how much people despised him and will be formulating his strategy based solely on how well he thinks he was doing on the earlier season.

    I do think this his mother's comment about Colton not being accepted by "some" members of his family explains a lot - I'm not excusing his behavior (he's an adult now) but if he came out as young as he said he did and was rejected by his own family it could have caused him to create this offensive obnoxious persona as a defense to help him deal with that rejection.

  3. well, THOMT, the reality is that's WHY these idiots are republicans.

    he's a self-hating homosexual with anti-gay family members. his solution? rather than growing a spine and a pair of balls, he perpetuates the same bigotry in his family. "Look, Imma gay but i don't like *coloreds*! Do you love me again yet?"


    same thing over and over again with gay republicans. they're not actually accepted. they're merely tolerated as long as they hate "those liberal gays" and "non-whites".
    it's something i could understand in a young and dumb person (ie, most republicans) but when you become a grown-@ss adult and you're still peddling that b.s. then frankly you deserve every ounce of misery life brings your way.

  4. How anyone can think that Colton is anything but a low life is beyond me. He's a little queen from a hick town in a hick state. The only reason he lasted as long as he did was because he had a idol and the guys on his team were dumber then he is.

  6. Having watched part of a an episode in it first year, I figure that this whole situation is nothing but a ruse to get some people to watch the show for rating purposes.
