‘Survivor’ castaway ejected for the first time in history

For the first time in 39 seasons on “Survivor,” a contestant has been ejected.

On Wednesday’s episode of “Survivor: Island of the Idols,” Dan Spilo was pulled from the competition by production for unacceptable behavior following an off-camera incident. 

“A decision has been made, and Dan will not be returning to the game,” host Jeff Probst announced to the remaining castaways. “He won’t be coming back to camp, he won’t be on the jury. He’s gone.”

At the end of the episode, a title card read: “Dan was removed from the game after a report of another incident, which happened off-camera and did not involve a player.”

The exact reason for Spilo’s removal was not disclosed.
