  1. Are you sure this is the first time someone trued to use the pen with the cap on? I remember it happening before/. I just can’t remember specifics. I think it might have been Angie from Survivor: Philippines.

  2. Hey, Rob! Nice job!
    One suggestion, though. It would be awesome if you add the confessional counts of each contestants.

  3. “Darnell Hamilton became the 14th male to be first boot. (There have been 19 females)” so there are 32 seasons, but 33 first boots? Are you counting Wanda and Jonathan from Palau as first boots?

  4. I have to disagree with you about one thing: Alecia is NOT the first person who tried to write on a ballot with the cap still on. If you watch the videos on the CBS Youtube where they reveal the full voting confessionals, you’ll see that in Nicaragua, Fabio also did this at his first TC.

    Proof here: (skip to 1:15).
