The reality star, who has apparently been given the name by TV crew, appeared exhausted and emotional as he spoke in the Bush Telegraph.
And although he began by talking graciously about losing out to David Haye in his first bushtucker trial, he soon couldn't stop crying.
Reflecting on his short time in the jungle so far, he said: "As far as this experience is going it's definitely harder.
"I'm just hungry and tired and feeling a bit over-emotional.
"I didn't expect to cry this early. It's hard to rationalise when your body is saying you need to eat, when you need to sleep. It's just terrible.
"When I found out I lost the trial, going through all of that suspense and doing the whole challenge and then finding out that you haven't won anything, that's pretty demoralising."
He said of his hunger: "It would have been nice to have had a nice richer meal than rice and beans.
"When I walked in you could see people's faces looking, saying, "Do you have good news?" I think immediately they could tell that I didn't."
Taylor's Made in Chelsea pals Spencer Matthews and Oliver Proudlock told ITN: "He doesn't like small spaces, he doesn't like bugs. It's going to be pretty interesting.
"He might reach breaking point - who knows? Either way it'll be entertaining!"
On the infamous kangaroo testicle eating task they said: "He'll love the ball task. He'll nail it. It wouldn't be the first time."
The boys also admitted Taylor looked "creepy" in his promo shot for the show.
