  • Reward/Immunity challenge: "Free Fallin'" [incomplete] - Survivor manages to have a first episode without a completed challenge or any voting, thanks to a challenge set-up apparently (from the title) designed to crush limbs. Well done.
  • Idol time: Sabrina spends two seconds looking, setting a new speed record, but sadly, it's Manono's. She gives it to Colton, but since nobody votes anyone out, so far, no payoff.
  • Voted out: Nobody, thanks to Kourtney's medevac.

Episode 1 scoring notes

Notes: Bizarre episode, scoring-wise. Technically, even though the challenge wasn't finished, the men of Manono "won." That's the only challenge.

 

*Kourtney's medevac: Also, there is a special scoring adjustment for Kourtney's medevac. As with previous ones, we give Kourtney an artificial boot - a unanimous vote-out by her tribe. Nobody gets credit for voting against her, but she does receive 9 votes against. Nobody else gets credit for a tribal council appearance, because they didn't vote.

 

Vote count:

- None.

Challenge stats
  • ChW: Challenge Wins. For tribal challenges, a contestant earns a fraction of 1 win, depending on if they participated (no points for sitting out). So in a five-person tribe's win, each participant gets (1/5) of a point, or 0.2 points.
  • ChA: Challenge Appearances. Used to calculate ChW%. Fractional for tribal challenges (same as ChW), except sit-outs get charged for an appearance, because they could have participated.
  • SO: Sit-outs - Challenges from which the contestant officially sat out.
Tribal Council stats
  • VFB: Votes For Bootee. The number of times the contestant has voted for the person who was ultimately voted out. Applies only to initial votes (no points for revotes in case of a tie). Special case: In a final three TC, where only one vote is cast (by the F3 IC winner), that vote and the autovote both count.
  • VAP: Votes Against the Player. The total number of tribal council votes cast against the contestant. Again, only initial votes count (no penalty for revotes), and here a hidden immunity idol (if played) erases the votes. In the special case of a final three tribal council above, only the F3 bootee receives a vote against.
  • TotV: Total votes cast during the tribal councils the player has attended (again, only initial votes count). Used to adjust for different vote totals as tribes shrink.
  • TCA: Tribal council appearances. The number of times a contestant has attended tribal council (at which they voted).
Overall scores
  • Survival Score (SurvSc). It's simply the sum of Challenge Win% (ChW%) + Tribal Council% (TC%) + Jury Vote%, for a maximum possible score of 2 (3 after the finale).
  • Survival Average (SurvAv). It's a simple sum of fractional Challenge Wins (ChW), weighted TC Ratio (wTCR), and (eventually) a weighted Jury%. The latter two max out at six points total, for a theoretical maximum score of around 18 or so.
