*WARNING: Spoilers for the Traitors US below*
Deontay Wilder has left the Traitors US after finding the competition too much.
The boxer was named in the line-up for season two of the Peacock game show, alongside former politician John Bercow, Love Island star Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and a host of Real Housewives icons.
However, viewers saw the 38-year-old struggling to cope after he voiced his suspicions of Maks Chmerkovskiy at a tense roundtable, who was eventually voted out and confirmed as a Faithful.
In emotional scenes, he broke down in tears over the Dancing With The Stars pro’s early exit, with Phaedra Parks – who actually is a Traitor – comforting him.
At the very beginning of the new episode, it was down to host Alan Cumming to announce that he had made the decision to leave the castle after things became 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 exit, Deontay led a discussion at the roundtable, which eventually led to Maks being voted out.
‘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.’
The DWTS star tried to protest his innocence but received the most amount of votes, and was banished from the game.
Real Housewives of Miami’s Larsa Pippen then begged her castmates to ‘dig deeper’ instead of ‘going on the wrong things’.
Mercedes ‘MJ’ Javid from the Shahs of Sunset agreed: ‘Deontay and Sandra, you were both so influential and that’s a strong, wonderful character trait.
‘But he was faithful, and Peppermint was faithful, here they are getting knocked off. We have to be careful.’
Other players put the blame squarely on Deontay’s shoulders, claiming that he ‘changed’ their minds.
Things became too much for Deontay, who shed tears over the scenes.
‘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 walking out, and Parvati choosing Ekin-Su to drink from her poisoned chalice, will the Faithful switch things up and manage to draw out one of those pesky Traitors?
The Traitors US is available to stream on Peacock on Thursdays.
