** In ''Fiji'', the two teams who would go to Temple after the final Temple Mission were decided based on a [[LuckBasedMisssion drawing of nuts]]. The order which the teams finished said Temple Mission determined how many nuts each team would have in the drawing bag. Essentially, whichever team won the final Temple Mission could still go to Temple. [[spoiler:This was what got the red team eliminated even though they won the mission.]]
