Four-time Survivor contestant and fan favorite Ozzy Lusth has proven he’s not afraid of controversy. Late last year, Ozzy revealed he’d played five seasons of Survivor instead of four, which confused many fans. He then caused some controversy when he announced that many judges on season 34 “Game Changers” began to regret voting for Sarah Lacina after she voiced her political opinions.
Now, Ozzy, who is known to have formed some romantic connections with his female tribal mates during his time on the show, has proudly revealed himself as a member of the LGBT community. Here’s what you need to know:
Ozzy boldly declares his bisexuality and calls out his “Republican colleagues”.
In a tweet Early Friday, Ozzy, 40, declared that he was bisexual, despite possible opposition from his “Republican peers” and anyone else who cares. “Am I committing crimes?” he said. “If so, come and get me. Let’s ALL live with dignity.”
He continued, “Ask yourself if you’re supporting people or the damn dogma you’ve been fed.” He finished with the hashtag: #ozzyIsBi.
Shortly after he posted this tweet, he then said tweeted again to address his “conservative fans” and say, “Please realize that nature is not a choice.”
Ozzy first appeared on “Survivor” in the 13th season “Cook Islands” in 2006 at the age of 24. There he placed second, earning four of the five votes needed for victory, not doing justice to his ally Yul Kwon. That season, however, he won the vote for fan favorite (in which Yul came second) and won a Mercury Mariner. This tremendous popularity led to him being invited three more times, although he would never achieve a win.
During his time on Survivor, Ozzy was known for being a bit of a playboy. In his second appearance in season 16, “Micronesia”, he began a romance with Amanda Kimmel, voting for her to end up and even win declares his “love” to her. at the last tribal council. However, they would split a few months after the season’s airing ended.
In his next reappearance in Season 23, “South Pacific,” Ozzy then began a small romance with his fellow tribesman Elys Umemoto, causing his alliance members to worry about their growing closeness. This led to Umemoto’s elimination, blinding Ozzy, though he later forgave his fellow tribesmen for the betrayal.
Corresponding his IMDb page, Ozzy also appeared in an adult reality series called Foursome, which was produced by the Playboy proper, in 2006, shortly before his first appearance on Survivor. However, throughout all this time, Ozzy was never known to have had any sort of sexual or romantic relationship with men.
Ozzy has spoken out against survivors using their platforms irresponsibly
Despite having a public platform, Ozzy has not been afraid to voice his left-wing political views. late last year, in an interview with Sean Ross and Evan Ross Katz on the Drop your buffs Podcast, he spoke out against three-time candidate Joe Anglim, who has been promoting false and dangerous conspiracy theories about stealing the 2020 election and has revealed his affiliation with the popular online conspiracy theory known as QAnon. Ozzy said it was irresponsible for Anglim to use such a large platform as he has.[spread] such blatant false narratives.”
He added that he believes that public figures with large platforms like Anglim are “in some way” responsible for the violence perpetrated through such narratives. “I just feel bad for him,” he added. “I pity the place he’s in that he can’t distinguish between truth and lies.”
Just today, Ozzy too tweeted out in support of President Joe Biden’s progressive Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, who said she was “literally the best of us” and that “the issue with [R]Epublicans” is that they “see them as the enemy.”
in one 2021 interview with EW, Ozzy, who now makes a living producing adult content on OnlyFans, explained that he’s recently “adopted my sexuality.” This was a declaration he dovetailed into his new life, but now it seems like this newfound discovery has a whole new meaning.
Survivor 42 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific on CBS. The finale will air on Wednesday, May 25, 2022.
