  1. I love the stats! I guess that also you can add that Andrea is the third three time player that reach the merge in all her seasons (the other two are Parvati and Amanda).

  2. Although it officially went down as a quit, one could argue that Osten was verbally voted out, as Jeff confirmed he was the unanimous target for Morgan.

  3. I never realized that Ozzy made jury all 3 previous times. I wonder which 3 time player has 2nd fewest days compared to Varner. And how many 2 time players never made jury besides Francesca, Caleb, & Russell Swan. And which other seasons besides gender split ones like Amazon, Vanuatu, One World have had 8 women left in Final 13 players. Only recently started reading this blog on Inside Survivor. Really enjoy the numbers you pull together. Thanks, & keep up the great work!

    • No. Sarah, Zeke, Andrea, Ozzy, Debbie, Tai. That is six. If he voted for himself it would have been 7-0
