No, Survivor‘s Shannon Elkins Did Not Want To Apologize For Gay Baiting Sash

If you’re like most of America, you’ve already purged your memory of Shannon Elkins, the Survivor: Nicaragua contestant who refused the label of “homophobe” after trying to use competitor Sash Lenahan’s supposed homosexuality as proof that he was lying to his tribemates about true self. (Watch video of the tribal council exchange here.) On last night’s finale and reunion show, Jeff Probst gave Shannon a chance to revisit and apologize. Mr. Elkins did not take the opportunity, though he did say “I met his girlfriend last night,” referring to Sash’s apparent switch to heterosexuality. And that’s all the time Probst had for it.
