Hidden idol playing notes

This list compiles all votes canceled out by hidden immunity idol plays over a Survivor contestant's entire career. For some members of the top 10, that comprises just a single idol play. But you get our point. Sorted first for most votes voided, then by fewest idols played.

#We included Sarah Lacina's (/Sierra's) Game Changers Legacy Advantage, because it acted as a time-restricted idol.

†Dean and Kellee both get credit for the Ep.7 idol that was technically played by Dean, using Kellee's idol, and her plan.

Glossary:
  • IP: Idols played. The credit for playing (and voiding votes) should go to the person who first reveals the idol at Tribal Council, whether they hand it to Probst themself, or hand it off to someone else, who then plays it. Idols handed off at camp, however, become credited to the person wielding them at Tribal. So when Russell hands over JT's idol to Parvati (in camp) in Heroes vs. Villains, he and JT have both relinquished their claim to that idol. In contrast, Malcolm gets credit for both idols played after handing Eddie his extra idol at the Three Amigos Tribal in Caramoan.
  • VV: Votes voided. When an idol is played, the number of votes against eliminated by the idol.
