In 39 seasons, Survivor has had its fair share of drama in the name of the game. 

Some of it has been simply some wild gameplay, like creating a fake idol, or claiming your very much alive grandmother is dead in order to win some sympathy points, and some of it has been deeply troubling, like when Jeff Varner outed Zeke Smith as being transgender as a last ditch effort to stay. 

This week, as the tribes merged, things took a turn they've never quite taken before. 

At the beginning of this season, Kellee Kim had complaints over the way Dan Spilo couldn't stay out of her personal space. She talked to him about it, but those interactions continued until they ended up on different tribes in the tribe swap. 

When the tribes merged last night, Kellee and Dan were reunited, and the touching resumed. Kellee complained, prompting producers to even step in during her interview to ask if she wanted them to intervene. 

She hoped to deal with it personally in the game, and even told fellow player Missy Byrd about it. Instead of being a sympathetic ally, Missy and Elizabeth Beisel concocted a story about Dan being inappropriate with Elizabeth as well in an effort to get him voted out.

Eventually, it was Kellee who was blindsided with two idols in her pocket, and she was forced to sit silently on the jury at the next tribal council while Jeff Probst questioned Dan over the situation. 

While fellow players and fans are left to discuss Missy and Elizabeth's questionable gameplay and Dan's answers to Jeff's questions, we're looking back at some of the more talked about moments of the series, ranging from the most serious to the more ridiculous, and everything in between.
