Gay Rower (Former?) On Survivor: Tocantins – The Brazilian Highlands

Posted by glrfcentral , 12 February 2009 · 1,867 views

Our news alerts caught this item: rower Spencer Duhm was written up as the youngest gay member of the lastest installment of the CBS show ‘Survivor.’  Now in its 18th season, the show is shot in Brazil where 10 contestants battle it out to see who is the last man or woman remaining.  The article says Spencer, who is openly gay, rowed for the University of Florida.  He had to drop out of school and off the team (obviously) to compete on Survivor.

Spencer has since returned to Florida and is back in school. No word yet if he has rejoined the rowing team.  If anyone can get in contact with Spencer, please tell him we’d love to have him join the GLRF communuty (and do a rower’s perspective interview).   Hey Spencer, great smile!
