Because of the ambiguous definition of "no elimination votes" in seasons in which Hidden Immunity Idols are in play, some definitions of the term do not consider elimination votes voided by an idol as votes received by the player. Some other definitions also include the Fan Favorite Award for seasons in which it was awarded, but neither are a commonly accepted part of the achievement.
Since the series began, only two Sole Survivors have been credited with this achievement.
^2 Includes 2 votes voided by a Hidden Immunity Idol. ^3 Includes 1 vote voided by a Hidden Immunity Idol. ^4 Includes 4 votes voided by a Hidden Immunity Idol. ^5 Includes 3 votes voided by a Hidden Immunity Idol. ^6 Includes 3 votes voided by the Legacy Advantage. ^7 Includes 9 votes voided by Hidden Immunity Idols. ^8 Includes 4 votes voided by Hidden Immunity Idols.
Three castaways have fallen one vote short of a Perfect Game, either by receiving one vote at Tribal Council or by receiving all but one vote from the jury:
Natalie White in Survivor: Samoa played the most "imperfect" game of any female Sole Survivor, receiving 10 votes against her: 8 votes throughout the game, and 2 votes lost at the Final Tribal Council.
Three Sole Survivors have received all of the jury votes at the Final Tribal Council of their season, but received at least one vote against them at a prior Tribal Council.
Earl Cole received 1 vote against him during Fiji.
