‘Survivor: Island of the Idols’ Contestant Dan Spilo Removed From Show
Dan Spilo, a Hollywood agent, has been removed from this season of Survivor: Island of the Idols by host Jeff Probst.
At the end of Wednesday’s episode this week, Jeff came to the camp to tell them Spilo had been removed. The end of the episode featured this message, “Dan was removed from the game after a report of another incident, which happened off-camera and did not involve a player.” However, not else is known about the incident and Probst said due to “privacy” they cannot comment on the incident any further.
This is not the first time Spilo has caused controversy on the show. He was accused of “inappropriately” touching one of his fellow contestants, Kellee Kim. Kim claimed that Spilo invaded her personal space despite multiple requests for him to stop. Spilo made a statement about the accused behavior. “I work in an industry in which the #MeToo movement was formed and allowed — thank God — to blossom and become powerful and strong,” he said. “My personal feeling is if anyone ever felt for a second uncomfortable about anything I’ve ever done, I’m horrified about that and I’m terribly sorry.”
There were witnesses from the show’s team when the incident happened which involved a member of the production team. However, it was not captured on camera but at least one of the contestants saw it happen.
