[QUOTE=mr.unamazing;146589]Oh, I so remember chet. Wasn't he the guy worked with pagent queens?[/QUOTE] Yes, that would be him.
Here's another miscellaneous list: everyone who cast an elimination vote every round they voted (meaning the person they voted for went home): [B]Borneo:[/B] Rudy [B]Australia:[/B] Tina, Mike [B]Africa:[/B] Ethan, Kim J [B]Marquesas:[/B] Depends on the technicality of Paschal leaving -- he and Neleh had a perfect record up to then though [B]Thailand:[/B] Brian [B]Amazon:[/B] Rob [B]Pearl Islands:[/B] Osten [B]All Stars:[/B] Amber, Rob M, Jenna L, Sue [B]Vanuatu:[/B] Twila [B]Palau:[/B] Katie, Ian [B]Guatemala:[/B] Stephenie, Rafe [B]Panama:[/B] Danielle [B]Cook Islands:[/B] Yul, Becky [B]Fiji:[/B] None [B]China:[/B] Todd, Amanda [B]Micronesia:[/B] Parvati, Kathy [B]Gabon:[/B] Sugar [B]Tocantins:[/B] Stephen [B]Samoa:[/B] Natalie, Russell H, Russell S, Mike
More firsts: -Survivor: Borneo was the only season that aired on Wednesdays (the remainder have all aired on Thursdays) -Australian Outback was the longest season at 42 days and had the first medically evacuated player in Michael Skupin -Africa was the first to feature a tribal swap -Marquesas was the first and only season to feature the purple rock tiebreaker -Amazon had the first contestant with a disability (Christy Smith was hearing impaired) and was the first to divide tribes by gender -Pearl Islands was the first and only season to feature the Outcasts which allowed two eliminated players back in the game, and the first that had a player quit the game -All-Stars was the first season to feature more than 2 tribes and 16 players (3 tribes of 18 players) and was only season to give away 2 million dollar checks -Palau was the first season to feature 20 players, although 2 were eliminated before any tribal council, the first to feature Exile Island and was the first season in which one tribe won all immunity challenges -Guatemala was the first season (not all-star) to feature 2 returning players, Stephenie LaGrossa and Bobby Jon Drinkard, and was the first to feature a hidden immunity idol -Panama was the first season to feature 4 tribes, divided by age and gender -Cook Islands was the first season to feature 20 cast members (that all saw tribal council), divide tribes by race, and the first with a final 3 vote -Fiji was the first season to feature an odd number of castaways (19) and the have vs have not twist, and the first to feature one immunity idol at each camp -China was the first season to have the ability to kidnap players -Micronesia was the first season that sent one person from each tribe to Exile Island, and had 3 players leave without being voted out (Penner, James, Kathy) -Gabon was the first season aired in HD -Samoa was the first season that had a player find a hidden idol without any clues
Oh, how I miss the tribal swab it is was such a good change. Also wasn't during the episode during which Russell colapsed did Jeff say that was his scariest moment on the show because for me it probably will always be when Mike fell into the fire.
Winners, the number of votes cast against them, and the final voting score: Richard Hatch: 6 (4-3) Tina Wesson: 0 (4-3) Ethan Zohn: 0 (5-2) Vecepia Towery: 2 (4-3) Brian Heidik: 0 (4-3) Jenna Morasca: 3 (6-1) Sandra Diaz-Twine: 0 (6-1) Amber Brkich: 6 (4-3) Chris Daughtery: 3 (5-2) Tom Westman: 0 (6-1) Danni Boatright: 1 (6-1) Aras Baskauskas: 9 (5-2) Yul Kwon: 5 (5-4-0) Earl Cole: 1 (9-0-0, first unanimous winner) Todd Herzog: 5 (4-2-1) Parvati Shallow: 4 (5-3) Bob Crowley: 2 (4-3-0) JT Thomas: 0 (7-0, first winner to never have a vote against him and win unanimously) Natalie White: 5 (7-2-0)
Including season 20, Australian Outback has the most Survivors that have returned for either an All-Star or Fans vs Favorites season at 5 (Tina, Colby, Jerri, Alicia, Amber). All appeared in the original All-Stars while Colby and Jerri back for season 20. Cook Islands has had 4 (Parvati [x2], Ozzy, Candice, and Jonathan Penner) Borneo has had 4 (Susan, Rich, Jenna L, and Rudy) Pearl Islands has had 3 (Rupert [x2], Fairplay, and Sandra) Africa has had 3 (Big Tom, Ethan, Lex) China has had 3 (James [x2], Amanda [x2], Courtney) Tocantins has had 3 (Coach, JT, Tyson) Other seasons have had less than 3.
Don't get me wrong, JT is a great guy and I'm personally happy he got the money for winning his season. What is not to like? Well, beyond him being boring. (And let's not even get into him being a "master" player...lol.) I guess that is my major issue with the majority of the winner list - I've lived through it, watched, and have been disappointed 99% of the time. To win Survivor, you need to put babies on a sugar rush to sleep midday 6 seconds after they just got up... Actually, looking through recent seasons reminds me of why I had become so disheartened with the franchise. (Samoa actually was fun.) My personal thoughts are instructions should be offered to the jury by Jeff before the vote that dictates the criteria for voting, much like that of a jury in the American court system. Then we could rid the series of such a sad victory circle... [I]Hangers-ons and do nothings.[/I]
What is the biggest mistake in Survivor history? For me its either Colby taking Tina to the final 2, James not using either immunity idol, or Erik giving his immunity to Natalie. Colby knew that Tina was going to beat him and he was okay so I guess it isn't actually a mistake, but it was a very dumb move.
And just to make my point...(and this is sad) I had to look up JT to find out who he was... Ok, I know...as a fan that is bad...especially being we just watched that season last spring. I'm getting old. But, once I did, I remembered...er..

Yikes, these stats are impressive. Impressive in the time taken to compile. That aside, I love stats.
Does anyone know what Helen, Shi Ann, or Jan from Survivor Thailand are up to since their season? I recently finished watching it, and I loved it.
[QUOTE=molds13;146592]More firsts: -Palau was the first season to feature 20 players, although 2 were eliminated before any tribal council, [B]the first to feature Exile Island[/B] and was the first season in which one tribe won all immunity challenges [/QUOTE] I could be wrong, but didn't they technically have Exile Island on Pearl Islands? The losers of a challenge all had to go there for a night I thought... I guess Palau was the first to have ONE person go...

Just wondering... why does pretty much everyone, including Jeff Probst, say that Thailand was a very bad season? I actually loved it. Helen's jury speech to Brian was epic, in my opinion.

My favorites all left early in Thailand, but I loved Jan she was great.
[QUOTE=molds13;146872]That final 4 was crap. They were awful.[/QUOTE] I think that brian was a really great player.
Jeff [URL="http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,1024612,00.html"]ranked[/URL] the first nine seasons, and here's what he had to say about Thailand: [QUOTE]They're going to hate me for saying this, but this final four of Brian, Clay, Helen, and Jan was the least likable final four ever. And that, in a nutshell, explains why [I]Thailand[/I] is No. 9 for me. There was so much negativity, with Ted and Ghandia's he said/she said sexual ''grinding'' incident, and Robb strangling Clay during the ''attack zone'' challenge. And then you felt like you needed a shower after watching Brian play, because he was so sleazy. It was a mean-spirited season. There was a lot of hostility, a lot of ugliness, and that's not fun to watch. We love conflict on [I]Survivor[/I], but conflict that is fun to watch, not conflict that is uncomfortable to watch. It's kinda odd that on the season I liked the least, they decided to ask me to host the reunion special for the first time, although I honestly think that's just because they couldn't find anybody else. I don't think it was that they suddenly thought I could do it. They just couldn't find anybody they liked, so they were like, ''Okay, we'll try Jeff.''[/QUOTE]
Ouch. Thats interesting, thanks molds. I didn't care for Brian, and I disliked Clay. Shi Ann and Jan were my favorites of Thailand. Helen was funny, in my opinion.
Thailand sucked at the time, because for the most part, the pre-AS1 seasons were awesome. It was comparitively lackluster. On rewatch though, it does seem better, at least in my opinion. I'll take a classic season like Thailand over any of the new gimmicks any day.
There's been lots of discussion on various boards as to who, physically, is the best challenger ever. I would personally say Ozzy. Here's a list of who won the most individual challenges in their season (i.e. after a merge), both immunity and reward. Borneo: Kelly - 4/8 immunities, 1/5 rewards Australian Outback: Colby - 5/8 immunities, 3/5 rewards Africa: Lex - 3/8 immunities, 1/4 rewards Marquesas: Kathy (2/5 rewards), Tammy (0/5 rewards), Vecepia (0/5 rewards) - 2/8 immunities Thailand: Brian - 3/6 immunities, 2/4 rewards Amazon: Jenna - 4/8 immunities, 0/4 rewards Pearl Islands: Darrah - 3/8 immunities, 1/5 rewards All-Stars: Boston Rob - 4/8 immunities, 2/5 rewards Vanuatu: Chris - 3/8 immunities, 1/5 rewards Palau: Tom - 5/7 immunities, 1/3 rewards Guatemala: Rafe - 3/8 immunities, 0/4 rewards Panama: Terry - 5/7 immunities, 4/7 rewards Cook Islands: Ozzy - 5/6 immunities, 1/2 rewards Fiji: Boo (3/5), Yau-Man (3/5 rewards) - 2/6 immunities China: Peih-Gee (1/6 rewards), Amanda (2/6 rewards) - 2/7 immunities Micronesia: Erik - 3/7 immunities, 2/4 rewards Gabon: Bob - 3/6 immunities, 2/2 rewards Tocantins: JT - 3/8 immunities, 3/4 rewards Samoa: Brett - 3/9 immunities, 1/3 rewards

Colby is probably a close second, though
