The American edition of Survivor has banned the term, 'Come on in guys'. 

The 'gendered' statement, considered by some as sexist, was discussed by the host of the US version, Jeff Probst, during last week's episode. 

Jeff had called the teams by saying 'Come on in guys' for 40 seasons but recently retired it, The Daily Telegraph reports.

However, he announced that he will no longer refer to the contestants as 'guys' from now on. 

Jeff asked the teams: 'In the context of 'Survivor,' is a word like guys okay? Or is it time to retire that word?' 

One contestant agreed the term was 'uncomfortable' and in the spirit of inclusivity, Jeff agreed to retire it.
