Funny 115 - The Third One
#47. Spencer Reacts to Stuff
Cagayan (and Cambodia too) - all season(s) long
Ħay dios mio!
is going to be kind of an interesting entry, because it wound up being
a different concept than what I originally set out to do.
I first sat down to create this entry, the title of it was going to be
"Bobblehead Spencer." I wanted to focus on the weird way that
Spencer always bobs his head up and down when he is speaking to people.
Kind of like he's a chicken. It's hard to describe it
in print if you've never noticed it before, but if you look at this
gif, you can see what I originally wanted to write an entry about.
The first 20,000 fans at the ballpark receive a Spencer Bobblehead Now available on Ebay - no reserve
here's the catch. As I started putting together the entry, I
realized that there wasn't very much I could do with it. Yeah, I
could maybe put together a couple of funny gifs. But I didn't
think there was enough material here to warrant this being an entry up
in the high 40's. It just wasn't a strong enough concept to be
ranked up this high.
However, the good news is that I did notice something ELSE as I was skimming through the episodes.
No! Yes! Fuck!
fun thing about Spencer in Cagayan (and, of course, later in Cambodia)
is that he almost ALWAYS has some sort of over-the-top reaction to
things. No matter whether it's something big, or something small,
or something good, or something bad, it's fun to watch what Spencer is
going to do off in the background in response to it. And so this
became my obsession over the past two weeks. I went through
Cagayan, ALMOST FRAME BY FRAME, and I looked for every instance of
Spencer having a spaz attack in response to something.
And, uh, I had a lot of fun.
anyway, here we go. Here are my favorite fifty instances of
Spencer reacting to something on Survivor. It's kind of a lazy
entry, since I don't actually have anything to say about them. I
will just present the pictures as is, exactly as I found them in the
episodes. You'll note that I cheated a little and I included some
moments from Cambodia. But you would have too if you wound up
with gems like this:
the end of the day, let me just clarify that none of these pictures are
photoshopped, and none of them are fake. Spencer just has a very
dramatic way of speaking and contorting his face and reacting to stuff.
And he likes to bob and move his head around as he is speaking,
which makes for some very dramatic screen caps. If you pause it
at juuuuuuuust the right moment, of course. Obviously I couldn't
have written this entry without frame step.
In any case, I hope you enjoy THE TOP FIFTY MOMENTS OF SPENCER REACTING TO STUFF.
He may not have ever won Survivor, but he will always be the top dramatic young lad in our hearts.

And, of course, the one that everyone remembers...
might not have left his mark on Survivor the way that he wanted to.
In fact, some people have referred to him as "The Charlie Brown
of Survivor" because every little thing that COULD have gone wrong for
him along the way usually did.
Daaaaaammn youuuuu Kassssssssssss!
But at the end of the day, we'll always have Spencer. And we'll always have his reaction shots.
I don't know if that's worth a million dollars.
But at least it's worth something.
P.S. Here'a a great video on Youtube which basically spells out the same thing.
P.P.S. Oh by the way, did I mention? Spencer also really likes salad.
