** Splitting tribes into age seems to be one with most fans stating that the younger people are more likely to win challenges then the older people. This is one of the reasons why ''Nicaragua'' became a SeasonalRot and why some people have been nervous going into ''Survivor: Millennials vs Gen X''.

** In ''One World'', Sabrina said early on "Nobody remembers second place!" Guess what place she ended up?
*** Taken even further where she failed to earn enough votes to make the cut for ''Second Chance''.

** Hayden Moss originally applied to be on Survivor but CBS asks him to be on Series/BigBrother instead and so he did. Come to ''Blood vs. Water'', he actually went to play on that season.
*** And from a more-so production standpoint of things, [[Characters/SurvivorNicaragua Fabio]] went to take his place in the season he applied. Guess who ended up winning ''Nicaragua'' and Big Brother 12?

* CaptainObviousReveal: Towards the more recent seasons of Survivor, they tend to edit some winners to the point that they will obviously win. Honorable mentions for this trope goes to J.T., Boston Rob, Kim, Cochran, Tyson, and Jeremy.

** Kristina Kell and a lot of the Zapatera on ''Redemption Island''. Other than Rob and Phillip, most of the Ometepe players were just made into dull {{Living Prop}}s, whereas on the Zapatera side, we have some legitimately interesting people and a couple players who the host says is badass, as well as one of the most DangerouslyGenreSavvy players in the series.

** Any winner who most fans deemed as "undeserving" solely for not being both physically and/or strategically dominating and aggressive compared to their [[TheRunnerUpTakesItAll runners-up]]. Notable cases are Tina Wesson from ''Australia'', Amber Brkich from ''All-Stars'', Natalie White from ''Samoa'', Sophie Clarke from ''South Pacific'', and Michele Fitzgerald from ''Kaoh Rong''. Sophie is an interesting case of this because she was both a strategic and a physically capable player. She was just more quiet about it.

*** Michele Fitzgerald from ''Kaoh Rong'' is an interesting case, as while she was treated as this, she beat another woman, Aubry Bracco, who would have been considered a strong female winner by the majority of the audience.

*** ''Kaoh Rong'' is an interesting [[ZigZaggedTrope zigzig]]. Unlike ''Caramoan'' and ''Worlds Apart'', it wasn't given much hype, which worried the viewers into believing it was going to be a terrible season. However, fans found Kaoh Rong to be very entertaining and well-liked, especially with its unpredictability and characters. But the problem that caused such backlash was season's winner, [[BaseBreaker Michele Fitzgerald]], who's win over [[EnsembleDarkhorse Aubry and Tai]] caused an uproar among the fandom.

** ''San Juan del Sur'' had a less GenreSavvy cast and the gender ratio was upset by the medevac of two sisters. Also, the fans who did watch show before hand had gotten voted out in the middle of the game.

[[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap However]], it did pick up mid-way with it's idol plays, blind-sides, unpredictability, and very likable winner. Cambodia also helped fans look back on it more kindly after it's returning players made an impressive showing.

** ''Phillipines'' brought new life to the series after a streak of poor seasons with it's entertaining gameplay, exciting cast, and one of the most popular underdog winners.
