  1. Ozzy is definitely passing Rob at this point. It’s kinda odd, I never think of challenge beasts as being the “best” players, but Ozzy is pretty much the most consistent player of all time. He wouldn’t last long post-merge but I would be surprised if he didn’t become the only four time player to never get voted out pre-merge

    The “most consecutive tribals” thing, does amanda hold that record? What is it, again?

  2. With the Sandra one couldn’t that be said for Jeff too? And some others from original Mana. Why just Sandra?

  3. “Sandra still doesn’t have any votes against her this season, despite attending three tribals.”

    That might be notable since she’s a high priority target, but if we’re being objective then Varner hasn’t had any votes thrown at him either.

  4. >Jerri held the previous record in Heroes vs. Villains which canceled five votes. (The idol was found by Parvati and Danielle, and was given to Jerri by Parvati at tribal council).

    It might be worth clarifying why this was not J.T.’s idol, because so many fans believe it to be that way. Technically we don’t know which idol was which because Parvati didn’t distinguish them (unlike Malcolm at his Caramoan double idol play), but had J.T. not given his own idol away, Parvati would have protected Jerri, so J.T.’s idol is assumed to have gone to Sandra.

  5. Sierra is the 14th contestant in series history to be saved from elimination by the playing of a Hidden Immunity Idol. In order: Yau-Man (Fiji), Amanda (Micronesia), Hantz (Samoa), Penner (Phillippines), Keith, Jon, Jaclyn (San Juan del Sur), Jenn, Mike, Carolyn (Worlds Apart), Kelley, Fishbach (Cambodia), Jessica (M vs. Gen X), Sierra. Keith and Jon did it at the same TC in San Juan del Sur. Mike is only one of the 14 to do it and go on to eventually win the game.
