yeah so there are a lot of trans and nonbinary people who have a negative reaction to gendered terms. it was clear that nobody there was PERSONALLY upset by being referred to as "guys", as the initial question happened before he called his tribemates "guys". i think it's such a minor switch and, if they're planning on continuing this trend of casting diverse, queer groups of people would potentially negatively impact someone down the line.
the moment of television was FULLY produced and he probably said something privately and production set it up and kinda scripted it, OR production asked him to be the one to say it because he is married to a transman and would be the most reasonable person to have say something
also the public mourning for that phrase and INSTANT hatred of him for being the one to say it is kinda weird to me because there are like 20 more iconic survivor staples than "come on in guys" but people on this site like to be super reactionary to any sort of thing they don't get that they've decided is too "pc" or "woke" for their brand
