*** In addition for David, him not backing down when Bret and Zeke attacked him for having anxiety, simply saying "That was a personal attack. I didn't personally attack you." Props to the Day 1 worrywart who made alliances with everyone sticking to his guns and not making it personal and standing up to the ones who did.[[/folder]]

* Episode 11 is definitely Adam's breakout episode. In the span of one episode, he redeems most of his strategic and social blunders. When the family reward happens, he states quite vocally that he will NOT play his advantage because he couldn't do that to the others, touching everyone's heart, including his nemesis Jay. Jay then brings him along, and as a sign of goodwill - as well as a strategic play - Adam gives him the Reward Advantage and patches their rocky relationship up. Then comes the immunity challenge built around endurance and focus, and Adam wins. Then when Ken blunders their plan to eliminate Zeke and they aren't sure if Will is with them or not, Adam uses his idol on Hannah as a safety measure. Which, while unneeded since Will did vote with them, showed his loyalty to his alliance and proved Will was untrustworthy - and overshadowed what should have been Will's "big move".

** All those who drew rocks at F10. Whether you think drawing rocks is good or bad gameplay, or some were being stubborn or petulant about it, leaving your game in the hands of fate is an incredibly bold and risky move. Special mention goes to David- often perceived as disloyal and having been shown dealing with anxiety and his neuroses (even being mocked for it), he went to rocks for Hannah, a fresh ally of his. Drawing rocks can lead to someone being emotionally broken if they draw it, but these six went for it anyways.[[/folder]]

** From the same episode, Jay winning individual immunity [[CurbStompBattle in a walkover.]] Once he got out of the first part of the challenge, it was over. No one else even got to the slide puzzle.

* David, the neurotic geek who sucked at challenges, won individual immunity in episode 10. He's in tears by the end because he never believed he could do it.
* Sunday, of all people, gets a moment in episode 10 by pulling off an incredibly risky BatmanGambit in episode 10. By knowing that Hannah, David and Adam were very overly paranoid players, she simply told Hannah and Adam they (Bret, Will, Jay, Zeke and herself) were voting for Ken when questioned on who the vote was going for. And when Adam ratted it out to David as he played the idol, he gave it to Ken, who was the wrong target - which enabled a tie and gave people a choice - either switch your vote on Hannah or draw rocks. The latter happened, and got out her rival Jessica. Not bad for an otherwise under-the-radar player.

* Lill had been overall very emotional and would cry at the drop of a hat, and she became Jonny Fairplay's personal ButtMonkey. And then the final Immunity Challenge comes up, an endurance challenge, where Lill changes from meek and mopey to absolute {{Badass}}. Throughout the challenge, a desperate Fairplay tries several times to cut a deal with her to let him win Immunity, only for her to constantly shoot him down and taunt him as he struggled, and ultimately failing as Lill wins the final immunity with astonishing ease.

* Will becoming the youngest person (at 18) to win an individual immunity challenge, that Jeff Probst said was modified to be even harder.

** He completely throws off Rob's alliance's plan to split the vote and take out either himself or Parvati. He flips Tyson, gives his Hidden Immunity Idol to Parvati (after emphatically denying it when previously questioned by Rob) and breaks Rob's alliance by getting Tyson voted off. Rob's perplexed facial expression when the votes are being read cinches the whole thing.

* Jay pulling an absolutely vicious blindside on Michaela just before the merge. What tops it off is her realization that she was the target of the vote.
--> '''Michaela''':(after the third vote is read) WHAT!? (to Jay) Did you do that!?
--> '''Jay''': Yeah. I did. (cue a staredown where Michaela glares at Jay in absolute rage, while Jay smiles pridefully.)
** And a bonus point for the editors. Up until that point, the season had been criticized for telegraphing the boot. So when Bret started getting screentime, many called it his death knell... except the editors managed to expertly hide the fact that it was Michaela except for one scene where Jay comes up with the idea.
