Survivor Winner Todd Herzog Dating Tocantins' Spencer Duhm?


AfterElton reports that current Survivor: Tocantins contestant Spencer Duhm is dating Survivor: China winner Todd Herzog. Herzog tells AE what makes the relationship tick:

"We have such extreme opposite tastes but so much in common. He LOVES sports and I prefer the solo outdoors stuff, I like to dress super trendy he's into plain T's, I love alternative music he likes Whitney! (shhh) We both love to keep active and busy, we love trying new things and traveling. I was attracted to him the moment I saw him, mainly because he's got this confidence that pours out of him and a piercing stare that you can't help but notice so I went 'fishing'! Started talking with him and reeled him in! He's coming to stay with me all next week, and I with him next month. I'll be in New York for his finale in May and we are planning a huge trip this summer ... So hopefully things go well! I'm like a wall that usually wont let anyone one close to me, but he's doing a great job at breaking it down so I have high hopes."

In a recent interview with Reality Blurred, Spencer said: "I don’t like come across like most of the gay guys but I am, so I’ll probably be like—but then again, JP was gay and nobody knew that on the show; he was about the straightest I’ve ever seen. … But I won’t be Todd, I surely won’t be Coby. I won’t be Charlie. Holy shit. I talked to my parents and I was like, ‘Mom, do I sound like that?’ she was like, ‘Sweetheart, no, I would never let you go out in public if you sounded like that.’ Thank God."

  1. How "straight acting" of you, Spencer Dumb! Très butch, darling.

  2. I think your mom should be more concerned that you can't get through three words in a sentence without saying the word "like."

    Like, you and your mom are like creeps.

  3. ANDY why do you give coverage to these douche bags. It's bad enough gay kids hear this shit on national TV, they should not see it on a progressive blog like yours.

  4. Yah, this is all pretty terrible. I'm glad that others see it that way too.

    What a fucking douche, seriously

  5. It was a the drag divas and nelly Village queens who uprooted parking meters and hurled rocks at the NYPD at Stonewall. Respectable white-bread types were uptown sipping cocktails and would only later benefit from the antics of the truly brave individuals who probably talked in a way that would make this little dipshit and his mom purse their lips and wag their fingers. Oh -- and another thing: Stop listening to your mother!

  6. Who are any of these people?

  7. Men who tout how they aren't like "most gays" are as homophobic as any straight redneck. They're taking pride in not being identifiable as gay because in their mind, being gay is bad. You guys are shitbags like this coverage is terrible for kids trying to come to terms with who they are.

  8. That's enough, Spencer.

  9. I'm glad he's changed his mind about nelly guys. Herzog was far from 'straight acting' but exuded a lot of confidence. Still a stupid interview though.

  10. Oh cmon, hes what 19? Who hasn't said something politically incorrect? You've never said something about how other people act?

    People forget that for a lot of gay people under the age of 25 (maybe even 30), they have never lived in a world where gay had to be their defining characteristic. For them being gay is like having red hair, its just how things are. Gay "culture" means a lot less to them

  11. bitch likes whitney-that's oh-so-gay in my book.

  12. Fascinating. Please continue to bring us more intellectually-stimulating accounts of these accomplished, brilliant and newsworthy personalities in the future.

  13. awww, i think it's kind of cute. the boy's infatuated. and, this is coming from a cynical old bitch.

  14. Being GAY means everything to me and I'm under 25. I love it! Spencer is self-hating. He needs to stop using "straight-acting." Heterosexual males don't own masculine behavior.

    Gay men in general have higher levels of free testosterone than straight males. Free testosterone gives males their gender typical attributes like a deep voice, dense bones, musculature, angular facial features etc. Gay men also have larger penises than straight men.

  15. Does that make them Duhm & Dumber? There, I said it.

  16. Um, Schmee, just because many of us call out those who make "politically incorrect" statments, doesn't mean gay is our defining characteristic. I suppose if I call out someone who calls me a wet back, being Mexican American must be my defining characteristic? That's the height of stupidity. And guess what, 19 is a perfect age to start learning you're a jerk. We learn many of life's lessons by how society views us. So you go ahead and stay silent, while we do the work that's needed.

  17. Spencer sounds like he confuses "straight acting" with inarticulate. There are plenty of gay guys who sound like dim valley girls , too. Andy includes these guys because they're cute and shirtless. By definition, the vast majority of contestants are narcissistic idiots who've got rap sheets or done porn, which makes for potentially good scandals and silliness, and makes it easy to make fun of them.

  18. thanks for your comment Bill. I'm well over 25 and being gay means everything to me. I guess I've transgressed every rule there is..... but we gays are as diverse as straights, so no surprise that we all make strange pronouncements. And even GM above is right: it was the nelly queens at Stonewall who fought so the rest of us could be free. All deserve our respect.

  19. I began my obsession with "F-List" serial dater Lance Bass when he came out with a barrage of statements about how he and his friends were the kinds of Gays that no one knew were Gay. Ha. Ha.

    Lance at least has (hidden?) talent to make it through life and some money obviously put away to attract marginal boyfriends well into middle age. This idiot Twink (and his mom) may not be so lucky. Would anyone be surprised if in a couple of years he ends up pulling a "Breedlove" for Unzipped?

  20. Give me Charlie and JP over these two any day.

    Oh, and thanks to the predictable turdmunchers who questioned Andy for putting this story on HIS website. You guys never disappoint.

  21. Ouch

  22. Has Coby from Survivor Australia come out as gay or is this just an assumption being made?

    Posted by: swiminbuff | Mar 9, 2009 6:39:28 PM

  23. The Survivor world is so inbred. Blugh.

  24. Aw, those douchey comments are old news.
    Everyone's said shit we regret later.
    The puppy love is new!
    I say "Awwwwwww, cute puppies!"

    Posted by: Strepsi | Mar 9, 2009 7:06:32 PM

  25. Well, they're perfect for each other. They're both douches.
