Survivor: David vs. Goliath Episode 10 boxscore

Filmed: April 23-25, 2018 |  Aired: November 28, 2018
Orange team wins
Nick finds idol
Christian wins IC
Alec voted out, 9-1

 

  • Ep.10 Reward challenge: "Back in Slack" - Alec saves the orange team from defeat, proving to be great even at tossing ladder rungs.
  • Ep.10 idol: The Davids search en masse on Morning 24; Christian keeps it up, finds an idol.
  • Ep.10 Immunity challenge: "Uncomfortably Numb" - Christian gives a 2+ hour lecture, pushing an endurance challenge to 5.5 hours, and eventually, Alec loses focus and loses the challenge.
  • Ep.10 voted out: Alec, 9-1 over Carl. Surprisingly sad.

 

Episode 10 scoring notes

Notes: When Alec mentioned not feeling good and possibly passing out, there was a precedent for that happening: The final IC in Survivor NZ: Nicaragua, where challenge beast Tom and nice guy who had never won immunity Avi were embroiled in a lengthy "A Leg Up" standoff (pun not intended, but damn it's a good one so I'll just pretend it was). Tom eventually passed out, and Avi won. It's a potential hazard for a late-game endurance comp.

 

- IC scoring note: When people sit out of an individual challenge, it counts as a zero in MPF. The remaining players are scored as if all ten participated. So Mike's 11-minute run gets him 7th/10, or 0.40 points, rather than 7th/7, or 0.14 points. Meanwhile, Angelina, Carl, and Nick tied for 10th place.

 

Vote count:

- Alec received 9 votes, from Alison, Angelina, Carl, Christian, Davie, Gabby, Kara, Mike, and Nick (voted out, 9-1).

- Carl received 1 vote, from Alec.

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.
  • 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.
