    • In reality Parvati was voted out after Sandra, the producer decided to switch it up bcs Dakal tribal was more thrilling.

    • Parvati was actually the 2nd vote that night, it’s been proven with screen caps and video clips. It was edited as though Sandra was the 2nd vote, due to that being a more exciting tribal council.

  1. That confessional stat is is really fascinating, thanks for sharing that. Also, it would have been great to see Chris from Vanuatu on this season. But anyway, I noticed some other things this episode! I thought it was cool how in both this season and Cambodia, when there were 9 people left in the game, the vote out was 4-3-2, and both times the 4 to get somebody out were lead by a Cagayan returnee. Spencer in Cambodia and Tony in Winners at War. Also in both of those seasons at final 9, a female returnee from San Juan del Sur found an advantage under where people sleep. Wentworth under the shelter and Natalie under the bench on Edge of Extinction. And another Kelly Wentworth connection, both seasons with Edge of Extinction had a female returnee get voted out with an idol with 9 people left in the game. I know some of the things I notice are far-fetched but I still think they’re fun to acknowledge!
