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

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.
