Some Survivor spoilers just got revealed by the online site for People Magazine in regard to why Dan Spilo was removed from the show this season.

People Now reached out to people involved with the Survivor production and got some more specific answers about what happened with Dan on the show. During the Wednesday night episode, CBS viewers learned that something had happened off-camera.

Now, we have a few more answers about why producers and the legal team for the show felt that they needed to remove Dan from being a part of the cast.

Their sources stated that Dan had allegedly touched a crew member’s leg after the Immunity Challenge and that another cast member witnessed it. It happened when they were getting into a transport boat. When the alleged incident was reported, producers met with the legal team to decide what steps to take.

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.”⁠

It was reported that Dan stated that it was an accidental touch and he disagreed with the decision to remove him from the show. This alleged unwanted touching comes shortly after another incident took place on the show.

It definitely appears that this alleged incident between Dan and the crew member was considered in conjunction with the accusations leveled against him earlier in the season. It all led to the decision to have him entirely removed from the competition.

Survivor 39 cast member Kellee Kim, who had notified producers about unwanted touching earlier in the season, also took to social media following the episode to share her thoughts on what had taken place. She seemed displeased that it took so long to be addressed in full.

No further comment has been given publicly by CBS or by Dan Spilo about the incident involving the crew member that took place off-camera. It may be addressed during the upcoming season finale of the show, or Dan may decide to address it through his own representation.

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