* The final immunity challenge manages to be a very tense back-and-forth feverish standoff between Chrissy and Ben, which goes from each being in the lead to having to start all over, before Chrissy finally clinches it.

* The first merge elimination has Joe and Cole feeling like they are on the outs due to their names coming up and no one telling them otherwise. Come tribal council and Joe plays his idol on himself....only for ''Jessica's'' name to start coming up, sending her home in a very shocking vote. Why? Chrissy set up Jessica as a PlanB vote under the suspicion Joe had another idol. When Joe revealed he did have one (in the middle of Trying Council - word of advice to any future ''Survivor''players: NEVER, EVER DO THIS UNLESS YOU ARE TRULY ALONE IN THE GAME), it made it painfully obvious for her and everyone supporting this plan to default to Jessica.

** Another awesome thing about her is that she went into the season, alongside her sister Nadiya, being very disliked after their stint on TheAmazingRace, yet after Nadiya's early elimination, people started warming up to Natalie, and after the merge happened, she became the favorite to win and became generally well liked, even by fans who had disliked her in the Race.

* Chrissy, a 46-year-old mom who turns 47 not long after this season airs, manages to rack up 4 individual immunity wins, tying the all-time record for women as one of four. She met a record just like Brad last season. She later notes moms are an important job just like any other and an audience member at the finale who is also a mom says Chrissy is an example of it never being too late to accomplish your dreams.

* Ben obtains a second idol ''less than an hour'' before Tribal Council and saves himself again by revealing it was hidden in his boot. This time, he just plays it before votes are even read as a BadassBoast by itself to show everyone they still don't get to be rid of him. He has saved himself with Hidden Immunity Idols ''twice in a row''.

And he also sets another ''Survivor'' first into place by being the first person to use a Hidden Immunity Idol before votes are even ''cast!''

Added DiffLines:

* Ben nabs a '''third''' consecutive idol in the wee hours of the morning while everyone else is ''asleep'', pulling a [[IronicEcho Joe]] right down to the comment about playing for family. He is now on par with Russell Hantz for most idol grabs per season.
** Chrissy ingeniously trying to use the now-defunct Super Immunity Idol like a real Hidden Immunity Idol with the instructions left over from Ryan's idol. It didn't work because Ben had the drop on getting the real one, but points for trying!
** Devon having the GutFeeling to vote for Mike to force a tie, managing to be the only person who anticipates Ben having an idol that night to prevent Ben from flipping the vote to get him out if the others all vote for him and he nullifies their votes again. Mike even asks "Did you vote for me?" after being caught off-guard, as Devon ironically did what Ben asked him to do to stay in the game last tribal council. It causes Chrissy and Ryan to control the vote and Mike goes out next. Ben also pulls out his fake immunity necklace as an answer to Chrissy's own bluff.

* Ben absolutely dominating Devon in the fire-making challenge in what was ultimately his winning game move. This, after he thought he was going to go out fourth, saved him at the last minute. [[LastStand Never underestimate the power of a man with his back against the wall.]]

** And props to the editing team as well in this one. The idol was actually hidden under the bamboo the tribe uses for a bed, which meant Ben had to sneak it out in front of everyone. The editors never actually ''showed'' Ben with the idol in his hand until he pulled it out during Tribal, making it just as much a surprise for the viewers as it was for the other Tribe Members.
