SpencplaySpencer Bledsoe

Here is what the Inside Survivor contributors had to say about Spencer Bledsoe after Episode 10 and 11:

Martin: In my opinion, the blindside of Stephen Fishbach was the best move of the season so far. It required subtle planning, expert timing, reserve, and patience. Kelley Wentworth definitely deserves credit here too (hence why she is closely behind Spencer in the fan poll), but it was Spencer’s ability to regain the trust of Jeremy and Stephen and retrieve vital info that just tips it in his favor. Hanging out Joe as bait, while scooping up a group of outsiders to take out the guy who had an advantage and a four person alliance, puts Spencer in a position of control for the first time.

Jacob: Spencer broke my heart this week, but it doesn’t take away from his incredibly immunity win and, most likely, smart play to betray our fishy friend. Spencer has put himself in a very, very good position for the rest of this game.

Shawn: Spencer finally proved what he could do when he works from a position of power instead of the bottom. In Ciera’s Ponderosa video, Ciera tells Fishbach that it was Spencer who was gunning for Stephen, which came as a major surprise to him. Spencer did a great job of using relationships he built with Stephen and Jeremy to gain a true understanding of where everyone’s heads were. His strategic awareness indicated that it was time to flip sides. On top of all this, Spencer dethroned “Golden Boy” Joe Anglim’s immunity spree, creating a smokescreen for a much bigger vote.

  1. It’s kind of like Stephen the week before… I can’t disagree that Spencer was the player of the week but I also think he cost himself the game. All these power players are making their moves too early… in Spencer’s case, though, any later probably would have been too late. He was probably screwed either way. But… I think that this weeks betrayal of Jeremy’s alliance will cost Spencer the game.

  2. I completely disagree with you: I think Spencer acted because his feelings were really hurt. He thought he was tight three until Tasha was chosen for the food. Once he felt rejected on the pick he ran around to get back at the one who hurt him and got him out. He isn’t top three with anyone now, probably lost Jeremy, and is known as a major flipper. I don’t think he set himself up at all, I think he lost it.
