  • Ep9 Reward challenge: "All Mixed Up" - Chris and Hannah pick teams, Chris single-handedly pulls the chest through the net as Probst praises his picking ability, Chris's team easily wins cocktails at a pool on the beach.
  • Ep9 Immunity challenge: "Bow-Diddley" - Ken outlasts Taylor, in a battle of surfing vs. snowboarding.
  • Ep9 voted out: Taylor, 7-4-1 over Jay and Adam, respectively.

 

Purple team wins
Ken wins immunity
Taylor out, 7-4-1

 

Episode 9 scoring notes

Notes: Ah, the split vote, scourge of scoring. As always, tough luck if you picked the wrong side in the split vote. (This is perhaps an excellent example, because David proposed it, and managed to vote for the correct person.)

 

- MPF note: The only way to get a zero in MPF is to sit out of an individual challenge. So Will follows up his perfect 100% performance with a zero. (As does Zeke, minus the prior win.) Bonus for Hannah: Last place is scored as 10th/12.

- Also: As far as we can tell, Will is the first person to sit out an individual immunity challenge after winning the previous individual immunity challenge. No #SurvivorFirst hashtag for Will, though. Nor beer, nor cocktails.

Soft drinks for Will

 

Vote count:

- Taylor received 7 votes, from Adam, Chris, David, Jay, Ken, Sunday, and Zeke (voted out, 7-4-1).

- Jay received 4 votes, from Bret, Hannah, Jessica, and Will.

- Adam received 1 vote, from Taylor.

Glossary of terms
  • 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. Duels (or individual RCs as in Ep1) at Redemption Island count as half a challenge (and half a win). Individual challenge wins count as a full point.
    • 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.
    • ChW%: Challenge Win%. Simply, ChW% = ChW / ChA.
    • SO: The number of times a contestant sat out of a challenge.
    • Plc: Place finished in an individual challenge
    • %Fin: Percent finish - roughly, percent of a win achieved, with 1 being 100%.
    • MPF: Mean % finish - mean of all % finishes in individual challenges.
  • 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), only that vote counts.
    • 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).
    • TC%: Tribal Council percent. Attempts to reward voting for the bootee (which players controlling the vote almost always do), while punishing receiving votes yourself. The formula is: TC% = [VFB - (VAP/TotV)] / TCA.
    • wTCR: weighted Tribal Council Ratio. Very similar in intent to TC%, but calculated as a ratio of VFB to VAP, while also scaling to a uniform number of TC appearances. The formula is as follows: wTCR =2* [VFB / (4+VAP)] x (14/TCA). I originally tried (1+VAP) to avoid dividing by zero, but this overly rewarded getting zero votes against relative to just one vote against, which seemed silly. (4+VAP) scaled that effect back comfortably. 14 was used as the scaling factor for TC appearances because there are usually 14 episodes, then a final scaling factor of 2 to bring maximal scores up to roughly even with ChW and JV% high scores.
  • Jury stats
    • JVF: Number of jury votes for the contestant to win. Maximum nine (Earl Cole, Fiji), theoretically.
    • TotJ: Total number of jurors. Necessary to not punish unanimous 7-juror winners (JT Thomas, Tocantins).
    • JV%: The percent of total jury votes cast for the contestant, or Jur% = JVF/ TotJ. This number is used, raw, in SurvSc, and is scaled in SurvAv (multiplied by six) to make it similar in size to ChW and wTCR.
  • 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.
