February 11, 2009: Andy Dehnart of Reality
Blurred blogging fame posts a long and fairly amusing late
pre-game interview with then-alternate (well, Andy knew he
was in at the time) Spencer. Highlights
"[Brian Heidek, Survivor: Thailand] got the
numbers late in the season because they had the stupid late
merge and Shi-Ann [sic.] was a dumb bitch—that’s
going to be on tape, isn’t it? I need to stop saying
that because if I get on the show that’d be really bad.
That’s not going in the article is it? Hopefully not?
January, 2009: CBS gets around to putting
up S18 content:
"Soon to see his teenage years in the rear-view
mirror, Spencer Duhm is ready to look forward to the
journey ahead of him. A fan of Survivor since
day one, which began when he was still in grade school,
Spencer can practically do a Castaway roll-call all the
way from Survivor: Borneo. His fanaticism will give him
a built-in edge that can make a direct contribution to
how far he goes in this game.
Born and raised in Lakeland, Florida
and currently a student at the University of Florida,
Spencer majors in telecommunications and minors in
business and European union studies. Aside from being
the recruitment chair for his UF crew team, where he
also rows competitively, Spencer is a huge sports fan.
Involved in myriad athletic activities since age 7,
Spencer has developed a strong competitive streak and
determination to achieve success. Rooting for his college
Gators or beloved Cubs familiarized him with all of
the peaks and valleys associated with being a contender,
which may help him navigate the ups and downs associated
with castaway life.
resume like his, it’s no surprise that
this self-professed lover of 'water cooler gossip'
can't stand slow-talkers or laziness and is very ambitious
and very outgoing. He is even willing to face his fear
of heights for one million dollars but there is one
fear that he refuses to face. When asked what he would
not do for a million dollars he responded, 'Snakes
in general, I just don’t do snakes.' This
young, goal-oriented man has been presented with his
childhood dream of competing on his favorite reality
show and truly feels that he has what it takes to become
the next sole Survivor.
Spencer is a gay, single man
and currently resides in Gainesville, Fla. His birthday
is December 20."
