Each week Inside Survivor contributor Rob Brodeur will be collecting various Survivor-related statistics and information based off the latest episode of Survivor 44.

Reward Challenge: “Put a Ring on It”

  • Frannie won the reward challenge.
    • She chose Carolyn, Heidi, and Lauren to go with her on the reward.
      • Each person she chose was from a different starting tribe.
        • Carolyn from Tika.
        • Heidi from Soka.
        • Lauren from Ratu.
    • Jaime is the only woman to not take part in the reward.
    • Carolyn and Frannie have taken part in all three post-merge rewards.
    • Yam Yam is the only player left who hasn’t taken part in a post-merge reward.
  • This challenge was previously used in Island of the Idols, Survivor 41, 42, and 43.
    • Island of the Idols is the only season this challenge was used that wasn’t part of the “new era.”
      • It’s also the only season of the five seasons to include it that didn’t have a green tribe.
  • All three players that won this when it was used as a reward challenge were voted out in the same episode.
    • Omar won in Survivor 42, Noelle won in Survivor 43, and Frannie won this season.
  • Frannie is the 9th player who was voted out after winning a loved ones-related reward challenge. The others are as follows:
    • Greg in Borneo
    • Gregg in Palau
    • Judd in Guatemala
    • Alexis in Micronesia
    • Kat in One World
    • Brenda in Caramoan
    • Ron in Edge of Extinction
    • Noelle in Survivor 43
  • Noelle is the only player to win this challenge and not be on a green or orange starting tribe.
    • Dean & Omar were on orange starting tribes.
    • Ricard & Frannie were on green starting tribes.
      • However, the merged tribe was green in Survivor 43, so everyone who won this challenge was on an orange or green tribe at some point in their season.

Immunity Challenge: “Union of the Snake”

  • This challenge was previously used in Millennials vs. Gen X, Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers, and Island of the Idols.
    • This is the first time it has been used as an immunity challenge.
  • The puzzle was previously used in Edge of Extinction and Survivor 41.
    • All three times this puzzle has been used, there were eight players left in the game, and a man won (Rick, Ricard, & Carson).
    • It was used as a reward challenge in Survivor 41, but Ricard also won immunity in that episode, so all three players that won this challenge were also immune at tribal council in the same episode.
  • Carson is the first man to solo win an individual immunity challenge this season.
    • Brandon won in episode 7, but Frannie also won in that episode.


  • Frannie had the most confessionals this episode with 7.
  • Heidi had the lowest confessional count this episode with 2.
  • Yam Yam is still in the lead for most confessionals with 54.
  • Heidi has the lowest confessional count of the remaining players with 19.

  • Nobody from the original Tika tribe has been eliminated post-merge.
    • This is the first time this season that the Tika players outnumbered the members of the other two starting tribes.
  • This is the first vote this season that was normal (no advantages used, everyone voted, all votes were counted, etc).
    • Episode 1: Brandon used his idol and negated 2 votes for him. Matthew and Jaime used their Shot in the Dark and didn’t vote. Lauren banked her vote using her double vote advantage.
