Survivor: David vs. Goliath Episode 14 boxscore

Filmed: May 3-6, 2018 |  Aired: December 22, 2018
Nick wins
Angelina finds idol
Davie out, 4-2

 

  • Final 6 Immunity challenge: "Step Brothers" - Nick wins, after making a huge comeback on the final puzzle.
  • F6 idol: Angelina eventually gets it (one of the most laborious idols ever), with Mike and Nick's help.
  • F6 voted out: Davie, 4-2 over Alison (as always).

 

Nick wins IC
Alison out, 4-1
Nick wins again
  • Final 5 Immunity challenge: "Vertigo" - Alison has a huge lead, but Nick again comes from behind and wins.
  • F5 voted out: Alison, 4-1 over Mike. Angelina plays her idol; Alison plays Angelina's fake idol. Neither does much.
  • Final 4 Immunity challenge: "Simmotion" - Kara and Nick enter the 4-ball stage, but Kara drops on the transition. Nick win his third straight!

 

Kara out by fire
Nick wins, 7-3-0
  • F4 eliminated: Mike slowly makes a fire, eliminating Kara, who didn't. So thrilling.
  • Final jury vote: Shockingly, the one David remaining (Nick) wins, 7-3-0, over Mike and Angelina, respectively.

 

Episode 14 scoring notes

Notes: All the non-winners tied for second place on the F6 and F5 ICs, mainly because Nick's come-from-behind victories in both showed that having a lead early on for those puzzles didn't really mean much. A case could be made that Angelina was a close second in the F6 IC, but it's hard to say for sure.

 

Final 6 vote count:

- Davie received 4 votes, from Alison, Angelina, Kara, and Nick (voted out, 4-2).

- Alison received 2 votes, from Davie and Nick.

 

Final 5 vote count:

- Alison received 4 votes, from Angelina, Kara, Mike, and Nick (voted out, 4-1).

- Mike received 1 vote, from Alison.

 

Final jury vote count:

- Nick received 7 votes, from Elizabeth, John, Dan, Carl, Alec, Gabby, and Davie (winner, 7-3-0).

- Mike received 3 votes, from Christian, Alison, and Kara.

- Angelina received 0 votes.

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.
