Zeke Smith is one of the returning castaways getting another chance at winning $1 million on Survivor: Game Changers this season.

Zeke, a 29-year-old asset manager from Oklahoma who currently resides in Brooklyn, NY, is appearing on Survivor for the second time.

He first competed on Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X in 2016, when he gained confidence and achieved great personal growth. He finished the season in ninth place.

Zeke began Survivor: Game Changers competing on the 10-person "Nuku" Tribe with James "J.T." Thomas, Andrea Boehlke, Brad Culpepper, Cirie Fields, Sarah Lacina, Oscar "Ozzy" Lusth, Sierra Dawn Thomas, Tai Trang, and Debbie Wanner.

After a twist resulted in the 18 remaining castaways being re-organized into three tribes, Zeke then became a member of the brand new "Tavua" tribe with Andrea, Cirie, Sarah, Ozzy, and Troy "Troyzan" Robertson.

However, another subsequent tribal shuffle then left him on a new revised 7-person "Nuku" tribe which also included Jeff Varner, Sandra Diaz-Twine, Andrea, Sarah, Ozzy, and Tai. (Sandra was the most recent person voted out of the game.)

Below is a list of six facts Reality TV World has compiled about Zeke Smith:

- Zeke's inspiration in life is Joan Rivers because she really "lived" and made Helen Keller jokes into her 80s.

- The openly-gay castaway was best remembered for his social game, the ability to weave in and out of millennial and Gen X alliances, and the way he'd quickly befriend people immediately after betraying them.

- Zeke was ranked one of the Top 16 high-school debaters in the country his senior year of high school. He was recruited to debate for Harvard, which is where he went to college.

- Zeke told Reality TV World in his post-Survivor elimination interview that he wasn't blindsided and thought nobody needed convincing he was the biggest threat left in the game at that point.

- His hobbies include writing, improv and cooking. Zeke admits he has eccentric taste with his signature mustache and Hawaiian shirt, and he describes himself as sharp, devilish, unstoppable, and curious.

- Zeke was the twelfth castaway voted out of Millennials vs. Gen X and therefore became the season's fifth jury member.

When high school player Will Wahl served as the swing vote, he decided to vote Zeke out because he was dangerous. Will was also just looking for a way to add to his Survivor resume.
