Last Season’s #MeToo Controversy

Survivor is as real as it is a reality show and last season got ugly. it portrayed a side of society that is as present as is secret and in the era of the Me Too movement, with millions of people watching, it was a reality check we did not need.

But received never the less.

Dan Spilo was taken out of the show after an “incident.” But regular viewers knew that this was just another twist in a story that had tarnished the season. Since the show began, female contestants were complaining that Dan had touched them inappropriately and the cameras caught examples of the behavior, as when viewers saw him cuddling women at night. On camera, yet it wasn’t Dan that got out.

In the episode that Kellee Kim raised the issue of Spilo’s touching, she was voted out. She was in tears describing her discomfort to the producers and sadly it was that very episode when she was voted out.

He was let off with a warning.

She wasn’t believed.

A little too real some would say?
