Survivor pretty much invented the gay-villain meme on reality TV with Season One winner Richard Hatch. But not even the clothing-averse Hatch spewed such hurtful remarks as Colton Cumbie, 21, the gay Republican contestant on Survivor: One World. Before a bacterial infection forced Cumbie to leave, he told various cast members to kill themselves and called African-American contestant Bill Posely “ghetto trash.”
On Sunday’s reunion show, Colton and his mother tried to apologize for his behavior on the show. Because that’s what douchebags do—they get their mommies to stand up for them.
