    • Since South Pacific had redemption island in play, this is the first double elimination twist since Cook Islands where two people were officially eliminated.
      • Since the Cook Islands twist happened pre-merge, this is the first time post-merge in which a double elimination twist resulted in two people being officially eliminated.

Ghost Island/ Twist

  • This is the second episode where nobody went to Ghost Island.
    • It’s the third episode where nobody was sent to Ghost Island after losing a challenge, as Chris voluntarily went to get an idol in the merge episode.

Hidden Immunity Idol

  • Domenick found Jay’s fake hidden immunity idol which was made by David Wright in Millennials vs. Gen X.
