One response to “Episode 3 Stats”

  1. Brad’s 10 confessionals in this episode put him in an elite group of pre-merge players with that many confessionals in their boot episode. Only Joel Klug (season 1, Borneo) has had more, with 12. Vince Moua (season 39, Island of the Idols), like Brad, had 10 confessionals in his boot episode.
