*WARNING: Spoilers for the Traitors US below*
Deontay Wilder has quit the Traitors US after finding the competition too intense.
Season two of the Peacock game show features the boxer, former politician John Bercow, Love Island star Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, and other Real Housewives celebrities.
However, fans witnessed the 38-year-old struggle to cope after voicing his concerns about Maks Chmerkovskiy during a heated roundtable, who was subsequently voted out and confirmed as a Faithful.
In heartbreaking moments, he burst into tears over the Dancing With The Stars pro’s early elimination, with Phaedra Parks, who is actually a Traitor, soothing him.
At the start of the new show, host Alan Cumming said that he had decided to leave the castle because things had become too much.
‘It has been yet another fateful night,’ he simply announced. ‘After the day’s events, Deontay has left the game.’
Hours before his departure, Deontay conducted a roundtable debate that resulted in Maks’ elimination.
‘Certain people have changed up on me from the first time I met them,’ he told the group. ‘This man is charming, this man is intelligent, and he wears a poker face that could fool a clown. This man that I feel is a traitor is you, Maks.
‘The way you move is of a traitor, the way you smile is of a traitor. The way you speak, you’re a leader, and you’re a shot-caller.
‘When I walked into the room when Marcus was murdered, you gave me an impression and it was so fake to me. It was bad acting, as if you already knew he wasn’t going to walk through them doors.’
‘But he was faithful, and Peppermint was faithful, here they are getting knocked off. We have to be careful.’
Other players placed the responsibility completely on Deontay, stating that he ‘changed’ their thoughts.
Deontay felt overwhelmed by the events and burst into tears.
‘I don’t know how much I can go on, my heart… I can’t do this no more,’ he cried. ‘This s**t f**king with me too much.’
With Deontay stepping out, and Parvati picking Ekin-Su to drink from her poisoned chalice, can the Faithful switch things up and manage to lure out one of those pesky Traitors?
The Traitors US is available to stream on Peacock on Thursdays.
