On Monday, former season 3 contestant of Survivor, Silas Gaither, was arrested and charged with rape and aggravated assault over an alleged incident that took place in Memphis, Tennessee, in May 2018.

According to Shelby County Sheriff’s office, Gaither 41, was released on Tuesday morning, after posting a $50,000 bond. However, he is scheduled to appear in the court on January 9.

Officials have not disclosed any details about the case, but the alleged victim told local news station that she met the 41-year-old reality star through a church Bible study in May 2018.


Gaither’s season of Survivor aired in 2001-2002, though he only made it six episodes before he was voted off the show. After the show, he decided to stay in Los Angeles, where he landed small acting roles in various movies and series. Furthermore, after several years of pursuing his acting career in Los Angeles, Gaither returned to his home state of Tennessee. He now works as a project manager for a home renovation company.
