  1. Michele holds the record for fewest tribals in which she was eligible for elimination out of the female winners at 4 tribals (Tom holds the record for males at 3). For comparison, Mike was eligible at 5, Denise was eligible at 13, and Micronesia Parvati was eligible at 8.

  2. During the entire merge phase of the game, no two people from the same starting tribe were voted out/eliminated back-to-back.
    – This is the first time this has ever happened.

    Second part is wrong. It happened in San Juan del Sur too, I believe

    • I forgot to add that the finishing placements of the final 3 follows this pattern as well. San Juan Del Sur had Keith and Missy (both were Hunahpu) finish back to back.

  3. One could also say that this was the most diverse Final 4 in terms of demographics (one Italian-American, one African-American, one Irish-American and one Vietnamese-American).
