  • Marya is the third person to use the shot in the dark, after Sydney in Survivor 41 and Zach in the previous episode.
    • She’s the first player to unsuccessfully use her shot in the dark and only get 4 votes against her, as Sydney and Zach both got 5.
    • She’s the first person to have her scroll revealed by Jeff Probst instead of opening it herself.
    • So far, all three players to use the shot in the dark were also the first players voted out from their original starting tribes.

  • Both of the potential targets this episode (Marya & Maryanne) have the same first five letters in their names.
  • Despite three people going home, and two tribal councils, there have only been two people that have had their names written down, and they’re the two players voted out (Zach & Marya).
    • All 15 other players currently have zero votes cast against them.
      • This is due to two unanimous votes and the shot in the dark taking away the eliminated players vote.
