Each week Inside Survivor contributor Rob Brodeur will be collecting various Survivor related statistics and information based off the latest episode of Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.
- Paul was voted out 6-3.
- The three people that voted for CeCe in the first episode (Lucy, Sunday, Jessica) are the three people that flipped their vote to vote out Paul this week.
- After two tribals, Ken and David are the only people to vote for the person that went home that night.
- David once again had the most confessionals in the episode with 6. He has had 17 confessionals in only three episodes.
- This marks the third episode in a row in which Lucy didn’t receive a confessional. The last time this happened was with Carter Williams on Survivor: Philippines.
- Michelle and Bret were the only other people not to get a confessional in this episode.
- This is the second week in a row where the oldest person on the tribe was voted out.
- This episode had the first official “summit” since Survivor: The Amazon.
Other summits include:
- Survivor: Borneo – The first ever summit, in which Jenna Lewis from Pagong and Sean Kenniff from Tagi met to discuss the merge tribe name and decide which beach the merged tribe would reside.
- Survivor: Marquesas – Kathy Vavrick-O’Brien from Maraamu and Boston Rob Mariano from Rotu met to discuss the merge and think of a merge tribe name.
- Survivor: The Amazon – Dave Johnson from Tambaqui and Jenna Morasca from Jaburu came together to pick out new tribes with a schoolyard pick. This was the first summit not to happen at the merge.
There have been three fake merge situations which can also be viewed as “summits”
- Survivor: Thailand – The remaining 10 contestants were split into pairs, and had lunch to get to know each other. The castaways thought this was a merge, and Shii-Ann even went as far as conspiring with the Chuay Ghan members. After the meetings, both tribes went to Chuay Ghan beach. At the challenge, Jeff announced that it wasn’t a merge and despite living on the same beach, they’d be playing for tribal immunity.
- Survivor: Fiji – Despite the tribes being merged, the first immunity challenge had the tribe split into teams, with the losing tribe attending tribal council.
- Survivor: Gabon – The tribes met for a feast, which they assumed was for the merge. After the feast, they read a note that revealed it wasn’t a merge, but another tribe swap.
- The winning pattern is still on track with Survivor: Nicaragua in that the younger tribe won the first and third immunity challenges, where the older tribe won the second immunity challenge.
- The puzzle portion of the challenge is a variation on a challenge from Survivor: Cagayan. In the Cagayan, the teams used sandbags to knock down the other team’s puzzle. Once one team completely knocked down all of the other team’s blocks, they had to switch positions and rebuild their puzzles.
- Episode 3 received 8.60 million viewers and 1.9/7 in the Adults 18-49 Rating/Share.
- The episode title “Your Job Is Recon” was said by Michaela Bradshaw, to the four people who were attending the tribe summit.
There was also a “summit”/fake merge before the second swap in All-Stars, with the contestants pairing like in Thailand.
