Survivor Season 39 Recap: Breaking Down Dan Spilo's Unprecedented Removal from the Game

Our "Survivor" podcast discusses the shocking twists in the penultimate episode of the CBS reality series

Lance Cartelli

Welcome to Survivor Brothers: The Ultimate Unofficial Podcast From TV Guide. In this episode, hosts Lance Cartelli and Fox Van Allen, from the Big Brother Brothers podcast, discuss the penultimate episode of Survivor: Island of the Idols, the highly emotional "Just Go For It."

Your Survivor Brothers hosts discuss Dan Spilo becoming the first-ever contestant in Survivor history to be removed from the game for behavioral misconduct. They talk about what occurred off-camera that sealed Dan's fate -- and how his dismissal will affect next week's finale.

The hosts also break down this week's intense immunity idol hunt, Dean Kowalski's excellent game play -- and Dean's stretching and flexing at Tribal Council. The duo also chat about Elaine Stott's emotional Tribal Council testimony, and take a look ahead to the upcoming Season 39 finale.

Listen to this week's Survivor Brothers for all the buzz.
