Each week Inside Survivor contributor Rob Brodeur will be collecting various Survivor-related statistics and information based on the latest episode of Survivor 45.

    • She’s the first woman in the new era to do this.
      • She’s the second woman in the new era to have a majority of votes negated with a hidden immunity idol after Danny played his idol for Frannie in Survivor 44.

    • It was used as an individual immunity challenge in Guatemala and Nicaragua.

Tribal Council

  • Emily was voted out 1-0 after a 6-1 vote in which Julie negated 6 votes against her.
    • She’s the fourth player to be voted out 1-0 (not counting seasons with a Final 2 where the final immunity winner casts the sole vote).
      • Lauren was voted out 1-0 in Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers.
      • Sandra was voted out 1-0 in Winners at War.
      • Maddy was voted out 1-0 in Survivor 44.
        • All four players to be voted out 1-0 are women.
      • The original vote at tribal council where Lauren was voted out in Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers was also 6-1.
  • This was the first time since episode 7 that Jake didn’t receive any votes.
  • In the new era, someone from the yellow starting tribe has always been voted out on day 21.
    • Liana from Yase in Survivor 41
    • Sami from Baka in Survivor 43
    • Emily from Lulu in Survivor 45
  • With Emily being voted out, this is the first new era season where someone with a “mat chat” in the premiere episode won’t win.
    • Erika, Maryanne, Gabler, and Yam Yam all had a mat chat in the premiere episode.
  • Not including the initial vote in episode 6, where Kaleb successfully played his Shot in the Dark, Julie has voted correctly AND cast a vote at every tribal she’s attended.
    • She’s the only player this season with this distinction.
  • This is the third new era season where four original tribe members made it to the final 6.
    • The first was Luvu in Survivor 41 (Erika, Deshawn, Heather, and Danny).
    • The second was Taku in Survivor 42 (Maryanne, Jonathan, Lindsay, and Omar).
  • The jury consists of only Belo and Lulu members so far.
    • The only two Reba members to be voted out after the pre-merge portion of the game (J. Maya & Sifu) are not on the jury.
  • Lulu is tied for the record for the earliest that a tribe went extinct, with its last original member (Emily) being eliminated in 7th place. The others are as follows:
    • Ulong in Palau: Stephenie was the last member of the tribe and was voted out in 7th place.
    • Solana in Cagayan: Jefra was the last member of the tribe and was voted out in 7th place.
      • This makes Emily tie with Stephenie and Jefra for the record of lowest finish of the highest placing member of a starting tribe.
  • Since new era seasons are shorter, Lulu holds the record for the earliest in the season that a starting tribe lost all its original members, having it happen on day 21.
    • In Palau and Cagayan, this happened on day 30.
  • This is the second time since episode 13 of Micronesia (when Erik was blindsided) where the majority of the votes were shown before being read by Jeff.


  • Dee and Austin had the most confessionals this episode with 10
  • Jake had the lowest number of confessionals with 4.
  • Of the remaining players, Drew has the most total confessionals with 56, and Julie has the lowest number of total confessionals with 35.


Episode Title

  • The episode title “This Game Rips Your Heart Out” was said by Emily at tribal council.

Survivor Birthdays

  • This week’s episode aired on Colleen Haskell (Borneo), Stephenie LaGrossa (Palau, Guatemala, Heroes vs. Villains), and Christian Hubicki’s (David vs. Goliath) birthday.
