    I dont think it’s complitely true Kelley is the only female to find more than one HII, Parvati found one in HvsV and one in Micronesia on Exile Island but left it there.

    • The one in Micronesia was never shown on TV, therefore it’s difficult to count it. All we have is Parvati’s word.

  • Nono

    Wouldn’t Joe be one of 19 players to make it to the merge without going to a TC? Since you’d include Aurora, Ron, Julie and Julia in that statistic.

  • James

    For the Immunity Idol section, don’t you mean that Scot Pollard was voted out while in possession of an idol?
