Filmed: October 29-31, 2007 | Aired: February 7, 2008
  • Reward/Immunity challenge: "Lock and Load, Light" - Puka wins, Aitu finishes a close second, Raro a distant third, and Hiki a pitiful fourth. Puka gets a fire-making kit for their efforts, although Raro gets an idol chunk, just like Aitu.
  • Exile Island: Penner exiled by IC-losing Hiki, fails to find idol using first clue.
  • Voted out: Sekou (a.k.a. "Seko" and "Seiku"), 3-2 over Sundra.

Episode 1 scoring notes

Notes: With four tribes, we're forced to assign not just partial credit for tribal wins, but partial partial credit for finishing second (and even less for third). First place nets the winning tribe 1 point, split among the number participating (here, five people, or 0.2 points each). Second place gets half that (0.1 points each), and third place half again (0.05 points each). You could argue that since third place received exactly the same reward/immunity combo as second, they should get equal points. In the end, though, the 2nd/3rd scoring gap counts as 1/20th of an individual challenge win, so whatever. Luckily, this only lasts for all of two challenges. There is no scoring relevance of Exile Island: No. One. Cares.

 

Vote count:

- Sekou received 3 votes, from Sundra, Rebecca, and Stephannie (voted out, 3-2).

- Sundra received 2 votes, from Nate and Sekou.

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.
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).
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.
