Will Wahl from ''Millenials vs Gen X'' took this even further, being 18 at the time of filming, and the first ever castaway to play the game while ''still in high school.''

Added DiffLines:

* JadeColoredGlasses: A lot of contestants become this on returnee seasons, but possibly the worst case was [[NiceGuy Ethan]] on All-Stars, who went from the lovable Africa winner to taking on this after he had to constantly play defense thanks to the "winners must go" attitude.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Generally each season has at least one of these, whether its a fan favorite knocking out the villain of the season, or a immunity streak.



* EpicFail: ''Palau'''s Ulong tribe. Infamous in that they lost ''every single immunity challenge'', and all but three reward challenges. The only reason anyone from the other tribe was voted out was that one episode featured a contestant getting voted out from both tribes as part of a twist. At one point, there is only one member of the Ulong tribe. As a result, no official merge happened, Ulong was considered "conquered", and Stephanie was assimilated into the other tribe. She didn't last too long after that, and the Ulong tribe officially became the shortest-lived tribe in Survivor history. "Ulonging" has since become a FanNickname for losing repeatedly.

** And Cagayan's Luzon(Brains) tribe almost becomes the next Matsing/Ulong. One of their tribe members threw rice into the fire, costing 95% of their food and voted off someone else(after holding an open discussion on who is the weakest and should be voted off), had to rely on one person to carry the entire team, and lost almost every challenge, winning 1 immunity/reward challenge. In the 3rd episode of Cagayan, Luzon lost against the Aparri/Brawn tribe who was TRYING TO LOSE ON PURPOSE. It says much when a tribe tries to throw the challenge, and the other tribe still loses.

* MoneyDearBoy: Jimmy Johnson calmly said (twice) that he expected his NFL fame and riches would keep him from winning ''Nicaragua''; he intended to help another Espada member win the game. However, Jimmy T. didn't believe that the legendary coach would remain that humble and selfless.



* RomanceOnTheSet: "Boston" Rob and Amber during ''All-Stars'' is the most obvious. There's also Amanda and Ozzy in ''Micronesia'', Keith and Whitney in ''South Pacific'' (to the point that she left her husband for him), and Colleen and Greg all the way back in ''Borneo'' (although they insisted it was [[JustFriends only friendship]]). Julie Berry from ''Vanuatu'' once dated Jeff Probst himself. However, most players wisely avoid this, at least overtly - nothing says "unbreakable alliance" like two players making out.

->'''34: ''Game Changers - Mamanuca Islands''''' -- Fiji (Spring 2017). A reunion season of 20 returning castaways, all renowned specifically for strategic gameplay. Featuring two tribes, '''Mana''' and '''Nuku''', Fijian for "power" and "sand" respectively. A tribe swap split off into a third tribe called '''Tavua''', which is a town in Ba Province on the largest island of Fiji, before reverting back to the previous two and merging into '''Maku Maku''', a portmanteau of Mana and Nuku. For the first time, two tribes went together at a tribal council to vote someone off together. This season also set a record of the most immunities at a tribal council, with five people immune at a six person tribal, resulting in an elimination without any votes. Won by [[spoiler: [[PlayingBothSides Sarah Lacina]] of Cedar Rapids, Iowa]].

* FailedASpotCheck: When Michaela does not get picked to be on a team-based reward challenge in ''Game Changers'', she spends most of the challenge on a platform where a hidden advantage item can be found nearby. Not once does she even bother to check the area for it, allowing Sarah to find it and take it after the challenge ended.
