  1. Bi self evicted, how many other castaways have self evicted ?
    Also, do contestants go to Ponderosa only after the merge, and if so when does the merge usually happen ?

    • Sorry for the late response, but 13 people have quit Survivor.
      All pre-jury players go to Ponderosa, then when the jury begins, the pre-jury players go on a trip while the jury members go to Ponderosa.
      In the past few seasons with 20 players (since Cambodia), the merge has happened with 13 players remaining.

      • Thanks very much for the info, you are the Stat-Man ! Think if Jabeni goes to tribal this week, then merge definitely the next week, if not then maybe two more weeks till the merge?
