Filmed: October 2931, 2007 
Aired: February 7, 2008
 Individual immunity challenge: Contestants
are told to run across the lagoon to pick up individual
immunity necklaces, one per tribe. YauMan beats
Fairplay to Malakal's one, gives Kathy Airai's one.
 Exile Island: Thankfully unused this
episode.
 Reward/ Immunity challenge: "Reinventing
the Wheel"  Airai wins.
 Voted out: Jonny Fairplay, who
probably should have been replaced before filming
started, 91.
Episode 1 scoring notes
 We scored the opening idol race/hunt as an individual
challenge, with two winners (YauMan and Kathy, even
though Fairplay found the wrong one, and Kathy had to be
told what it was). Apart from that, pretty standard.
Vote count:
 Fairplay received 9 votes, from
Amanda, Ami, Cirie, Eliza, Parvati, James, Ozzy, Penner,
and YauMan (voted out, 91).
 Ozzy received 1 vote, from Fairplay.
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 fiveperson 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 sitouts 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 7juror
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.
