Dan Spilo reveals intriguing Survivor spoilers

Dan Spilo had a lot to say about his time on the show β€” which included stating that he was “deeply sorry for how my actions affected Kellee during the taping of this season of Survivor.”

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, β€œa 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.”⁠

He went on to say, “After apologizing at the tribal council when I first learned that Kellee still felt uncomfortable, I want to make sure I do so again, clearly and unambiguously. I truly regret that anyone was made to feel uncomfortable by my behavior.”

Following the episode where it was shown that Spilo had been removed from the show, Kellee Kim released a statement of her own. She noted that she had received a number of apologies from other Survivor cast members and that she was glad that she had spoken up.

Survivor season finale

It has been revealed that the entire three-hour presentation of the Survivor finale and Reunion Show will be pre-taped. Dan Spilo is not going to be in attendance and it appears that producers and CBS were nervous about what could happen if the Reunion Show remained live.

Finale night gets started at 8/7c on Wednesday, December 18, with two hours of episodes followed by the Reunion Show, where the Season 39 winner gets revealed. It’s also when fans are going to get a lot of teasers about what will take place during Survivor Season 40.

Survivor: Island of the Idols airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on CBS.
