    • Her and Cirie hold the record for the least amount of votes cast against a 4+ time player in Survivor.
    • Sandra holds the record for lowest votes that counted with 7, as she negated 2 votes against her in Heroes vs. Villains with an immunity idol.
  • Despite playing in four seasons, Sandra has never been a member of the jury.
  • This is the first season since Heroes vs. Villains where there were more than eight tribal councils before the merge.
    • Winners at War had nine, while Heroes vs. Villains had ten.
  • This is the first season since Blood vs. Water where nine people were voted out before the merge.
  • With Sandra leaving, we will be guaranteed to have another two-time winner this season.

Immunity Challenge – “Dishwalla”

  • There was an unaired reward challenge on Day 17 that was seen in press photos.
    • The challenge was won by Yara and Sele.
  • This challenge name is based on an American rock band.

Ratings

  • The seventh episode received 8.1 million viewers and 1.7 in the Adults 18-49 demo. This is Survivor’s highest amount of viewers since Episode 7 of Ghost Island, most likely a result of the lack of competition from live sports and other programming amid the covid-19 pandemic.

Episode Title

  • Boston Rob said the episode title “We’re in the Majors” during a confessional when he was talking about his fire token search on the Edge of Extinction.
