"I don't call myself Troyzan in my real life. I would look like a complete tool. It's a play on words. I raised a set of marmoset monkeys for the past 20 years," he explained.

"My friends know I work in a jungle area and a co-worker compared me to [the character] Tarzan and it kind of just spread from there. [On the island] Tarzan and I started talking and my name came up and then [host Jeff Probst] asked Tarzan a question and he said, 'Oh yeah, Troyzan'. And Jeff said, 'Is that what you're called?' And I said, 'Yeah, if you want'."

Robertson also spoke out on the all-female alliance which was responsible for his premature exit from the game.

"The girls were acting so smug and cocky. I understand that they wanted me out but they were acting so noble and telling me how to act - '[to] take it like a man'. That really irked me and that's why I went nuts on them. I made them paranoid as hell. They didn't know what I was going to do next," he said.
