One response to “Episode 9 Stats”

  1. This might be really far fetched and not worth mentioning. I did find it fascinating how in this episode with 11 people left in the game, Parvati found the advantage with Danni. Because in Heroes vs Villians, when there were 11 people left in the game, she found an idol with Danielle. Danni Boatwright’s real name is Danielle (had to google to make sure lol) so in both seasons, when there were 11 people left, Parvati found an advantage with a Danielle.
