Survivor 39 cast member Kellee Kim made a long post on Twitter after she watched Dan Spilo getting removed from the show.

At the end of the episode on Wednesday night, it was revealed that Dan had been kicked off the show. Host Jeff Probst spoke briefly with the final five castaways, detailing how Dan was gone and wouldn’t be in the jury either.

Producers also provided a title card for viewers to let everyone know that another incident had taken place off-camera that involved Dan. After what took place earlier in the season, this didn’t surprise a lot of viewers.

Kellee, who had been eliminated during a previous Tribal Council, posted her reactions to what had taken place on social media. Her full post is shared below, where she officially gives more details about her side of the story.

Hurry up and wait. 😩 That's what the Survivor 42 cast is now doing. We recently got word that Season 41 is in the process of being filmed in Fiji, but now, we find out that the Season 42 cast has reportedly been unable to travel there for filming, which has caused delays in the production of a new season.⁠
⁠
Survivor 42 was intended to be the spring 2022 season on CBS, with the network working hard to film back-to-back seasons in Fiji. 🌴 Currently, it looks like Survivor 41 is still on schedule to debut in the fall of 2021, but after that, it is unclear when the next season of the show can even be filmed.⁠
⁠
So why the hold-up? According to a report from fan site Inside Survivor, “a second outbreak of the highly infectious Indian COVID-19 variant over the past two weeks has seen the government impose new restrictions, including a ban on air travel in and out of the country.”⁠

All the details of what we might expect at our #linkinbio.⁠

Kellee noted in her statement that she feels Dan’s dismissal validated the concerns she had raised earlier in the season. She also spoke about how other members of the cast have reached out to her with apologies.

We will all get to see Kellee again during the Reunion Show, which takes place on Wednesday, December 18. This is a topic that will likely get addressed, but it’s unclear just how deep into the discussion that host Jeff Probst will take the topic.

One facet of it all that is worth mentioning is that producers are not going to allow the Reunion Show to be live for East Coast viewers. An announcement was already made that they will be pre-taping that portion of the show in order to air it at 10/9c on Wednesday night.

It’s good that Kellee has decided to continue speaking up about her experience on the show. She will likely have more to say after the Season 39 finale and Reunion Show airs and we will be sure to pass that on.

Survivor airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on CBS.
