Straight Guys Spend the Night Spooning on Survivor: Tocantins


Forget the fact that the gay Survivor contesant Spencer was kicked off the show a while back. The Survivor: Tocantins producers turned a rainy night for two presumably straight male contestants on Exile Island into an innuendo-laden Brokeback-style adventure. After Brendan presents Stephen with the gift of a snakeskin boa, they spend the night spooning together. The producers go so far as to compare them to two copulating frogs.

Survivor2 Says Stephen: "I have never been so close to another man. He and I spooned for all we were worth. Nothing could prepare me for lying against a hunk of man."

Says Brendan: "The night Stephen and I had out here on Exile was probably the worst night I've had. So we huddled up and spooned all night and had a great bonding experience...And that's the one really cool thing about Exile it's just a bonding experience far greater than what could happen back at our tribes."

  3. That was cute and funny. They seem to have a good sense of humor about themselves.

  6. @ David in Houston: That's not your gaydar going off - it's your naughty parts getting tingly.

  7. It's so disappointing to click on this and see that no one has made the obligatory "why is this here/who gives a shit" comment yet.

    I like Brendan and Taj, but since they're both rich, I'm pulling for Stephen.

  8. Yes, straight men are allowed to touch.

  9. Obviously homophobia causes gay people more trouble, but it's also a shame that it has affected how men relate to other men, regardless of sexuality.

  10. Stupid stupid stupid. Spooning is a minimalist survival technique while in the wild. We did it by 2,3,4 guys when I was in the army and nobody ever thought this was remotely sexual. It's cool though because you feel the secureness of brotherhood. Guys are so frightened AND obsessed with sex that even gay dudes giggle like teenage girls because of the slightest contact.

  12. "contesant Spencer was kicked off the show a while back"...
    NOT TRUE! He was kicked off the show one week prior to the above episode. That really isn't "a while back".

  13. Spencer was voted off two weeks ago (there was a 1-week hiatus).
