Episode Title

  • The episode title “What Happened on Exile, Stays on Exile” was said by Debbie as she wanted to keep her exile experience a secret.

Rob is 30 years old from Boston, MA. He studied Architectural Engineering at college and has been following Survivor since the first season. He is married and has a dog named Snoopy. He also hosts Survivor ORGs (Online Reality Games) on Facebook.

  • Nathan Schultz

    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).

  • Anthony C

    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.

  • Red

    Is Jeff the first person to vote against themselves at tribal?

  • Agent__Zigzag

    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!

  • Red

    Really who?
    It says Jeff was voted out with 6 votes

  • Red

    It says he got voted out 6-0 he is number 6

    • Rhys D

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