** Say what you will about Fairplay, talking Sandra and Lillian into voting out Darrah over him was actually a ''very'' good move for him to get into the final two. Anyone who had seen the show by that point (or had sat through a couple complete seasons) would have known the final immunity was always an endurance challenge; and aside from himself, Darrah was the most physically fit to win that. So by getting rid of Darrah, he would compete for final immunity against a scoutmaster who would constantly screw up and was at the time 51 years old and a woman who hadn't won a single challenge all game and wasn't physically strong. And that's what made Lillian's come-from-behind final immunity so much more of a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, since ''nobody'' expected ''her to do that.

** Jenna Lewis and Gervase Peterson did way better in their second attempt in the game than the former Tagis. Why? Because they know what it's like to be in the losing end (aka [[FanNickname Pagonged]]). They even joined a very tight alliance to ensure it. Both of them placed 3rd as eventually, as well.

* If Survivor Superfans do well in all original players seasons (Ex would be Rob Cesternino), they why do they do so bad in Fans vs Favorites? ''They're starstruck''

* ** The winner of ''Heroes vs Villains'' was a villain who was actively working against all the (remaining) villains. Say what you will about the outcome, but it's fitting how the winner was essentially an AntiVillain rather than a straight-cut hero or villain. It shows that to win ''Survivor,'' you need a balance between being well-liked (hero) and cunning strategy (villain).

** Kourtney got evacuated on day three from a ''horrible'' wrist injury. In a later medical examination, a grapefruit sized tumour was found in her abdomen and despite it being there during filming, she showed essentially no symptoms. Yikes!


** Why did Caryn decide to pick Willard in ''Palau'' over Jonathan? Because Willard was a weak older man who could be a scapegoat if they went to tribal council, and he would probably be voted out over her.

Sure enough, he was the first person voted out of Koror when they eventually did have to go to Tribal Council, and Caryn ended up making final five.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''Heroes vs. Villains'', the Heroes excel at physical challenges, but the Villains trounce the heroes in terms of puzzle solving. The Villains are known for being strategic masterminds, so it makes sense that they would do better in challenges that have a cerebral element to them.

** In ''Blood vs. Water'', Rupert and Candice were the first two inhabitants of Redemption Island. Before the merge, their spouses were the last two people eliminated. Also, the first and last jury members are previous winners. The season loves the BookEnds[=/=]IronicEcho trope way too much.
