* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: [[CaptainPlanet Ma-Ti and his Power of Heart]] is referenced repeatedly by Jaison in ''Samoa''. He ultimately concludes that HeartIsAnAwesomePower, and wished he had it to help cope in the wilderness.

** Drew Christy from ''San Juan del Sur'': After spending the entire first week of the game sleeping and generally drawing ire from his tribemates, he then tried to sell the tribe flint to Jeff Probst (needless to say, this failed), exiled himself from his tribemates for a whole day, spontaneously decided throw a challenge, did so in an incredibly obvious way, openly announced his plans to target the (non-existent) all-female alliance, and acted like a complete jackass the whole time.

The result? He angers everyone so much that all of the girls (and Jeremy) band together to vote him out while the rest of the guys scatter their votes towards Keith and Julie. That's right, Drew's horrible gameplay against a non-existent girls alliance ''created'' to get rid of him.

** Another prominent one from ''China'': James, the blunt and aggressive gravedigger and Todd, the scrawny, flamboyantly gay manipulator.



** Also from ''Africa'': Lex alienating himself and risking elimination to vote out someone he feels wronged him.



** B.B. and Dirk in ''Borneo'' asked to be voted out
** Lisi in ''Fiji'' said she was done with the game and asked to be voted out
** Tina in ''Exile Island'' asked to be voted out since she was still mourning her son who died in a car crash. Jim asked to be voted out because he tore his bicep (and was shown as ''still'' having it in a splint months later!).
** Jonny Fairplay also asked everyone to vote him out first in ''Micronesia'', saying he wanted to be with his pregnant wife and daughter, which everyone thought was a ploy.

** Jeff from ''Palau'' asked to be voted out after spraining his foot on a coconut, as well as to save his love interest, Kim (who ended up going home next.)



** It's suspected that the [[OutOfFocus supporting cast]] of ''Samoa'' and ''Redemption Island'' were chosen specifically because they weren't the smartest players, and would allow Russell/Boston Rob to manipulate them easily to a victory. It failed in Russell's case, but allowed Boston Rob to get on everyone's good sides and win against two vastly inept players.
** Russell falls victim to this after he loses the advantage he acquired in ''Samoa'' and ''Heroes vs. Villains''. While he promises to change his strategy, he in fact uses the same tactics he did in these previous seasons, but this time his tribe knows what he's up to and eliminates him quickly.

* TookALevelInJerkass: Many survivors who return to the competition do so on a sour note for various reasons, such as Jenna Lewis, Boston Rob and Lex Van Den Berghe in ''All Stars'', Stephenie [=LaGrossa=] in ''Guatemala'', and James Clement in ''Heroes vs Villains''. Hell, even Jeff Probst has become more aggressive in his questioning and role in the show in later seasons..

->'''32: ''Kaôh Rōng''''' -- Koh Rong (Spring 2016). A second "Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty" season after ''Cagayan'', again with three tribes of six. The teaser at the end of ''Cambodia'' also featured an unusually high number of medical emergencies.

Notable castaways are former NBA star Scot Pollard (2008 winner with the Boston Celtics) and ''Series/BigBrother 16'' contestant Caleb Reynolds. For the first time, the two Hidden Immunity Idols can be merged into a special Idol that can be used ''after'' the votes had been read.

->'''31: ''Cambodia - Second Chance''''' -- Cambodia (Fall 2015). 20 returning castaways, initially divided into two tribes of ten but the first tribe swap split them from two to ''three'' tribes (of six) named '''Ta Keo''', '''Bayon''', and '''Angkor''' after temples of Angkor Wat; the later merged tribe was named '''Orkun'''. For the first time, the cast was decided by a fan vote, with the results announced at the ''Worlds Apart'' finale and the selected castaways sent off to play that same night. Another new twist is that Hidden Immunity Idols are now hidden in places where there's a much higher chance of being caught, such as during challenges or even underneath the tribe shelter. Won by [[BaldofAwesome Jeremy Collins]] (from ''San Juan del Sur'') of Foxboro, Massachusetts.

Added DiffLines:

* HistoryRepeats: ''Kaoh Rong'' has a few similarities to ''Cagayan'':
** One of the three tribes is quite dysfunctional and gets reduced to three members swap, broken up by them winning one immunity. (In fact, the one immunity they won was actually in the same cycle for the one immunity that the brains won in Cagayan)
** There is a NonGameplayElimination pre-merge. (Albeit under far different circumstances)
** Merge at eleven, the swapped tribes are 6-5. From the original tribes, it is also a 4-4-3 split.
*** Four beauties remain at the merge.

** In the fourth episode of ''Kaoh Rong'', '''THREE''' people went down after the reward challenge due to intense heat and strain on their bodies and the entire crew had to get involved to check on the contestants, with one ultimately getting [[NonGameplayElimination evacuated]] after his ''kidney and liver failed''.

** Kelley Wentworth went from being a forgettable pre-merge boot in ''San Juan Del Sur'' to being a huge threat in ''Cambodia''. She was the first person to find an idol in a challenge, used that idol to negate the most votes ever with 9, and found another idol in the camp at the risk of being caught. She was impressive in challenges, and had she won the final immunity, she would have won the whole thing.
