'Survivor's Spencer Bledsoe Says The Show Needs To Be 'Radically Re-Invented'

Former Survivor contestant Spencer Bledsoe is speaking out about the show he was on for two seasons and ripping how it seems like it’s the same thing over and over again.

Spencer competed on two seasons of the show – Cagayan and Cambodia – and when speaking with Entertainment Weekly, shared that he truly thinks the show needs to be radically re-invented.

Survivor needs to be radically re-invented,” he said. “It can be so much more than the hodge-podge of advantages that it devolved into during seasons 34-39…”

Spencer continued, adding some ideas he has to give the show a fresh life: “To overcome this long dark age, though, it’s going to take a lot: I’m talking about taking all advantages out, taking all manufactured drama and twist-y-ness out, and refocusing on characters, personalities and journeys.”

“I’m talking about a season where there is no voting for the first few weeks, or where tribes have to actually create their own structures and/or mechanisms for voting, elect leaders and form worlds.”

He went on, “The ‘game’ of it isn’t very interesting anymore. It is counting. Counting on steroids, but nonetheless, counting. I’m tired of non-stop counting with the only reprieve from counting being moments like Cirie being eliminated by too many advantages to… count…the strategy of Survivor… gets old.”
