Andrea

The girls could have done something tonight. They could have made a move and actually have a little more respect from them. I think by coming back from Redemption Island after winning a big duel put a pretty big target on my back but I'm happy for how far I got. I had a great opportunity, great experience, met some wonderful people and I wouldn't change it for the world.

(voting for Ashley) I've never known anyone that could lay in bed day after day each day.

(voting for Phillip) I can't believe it's taken 38 days to finally write your name down. I won't miss you. You're a nut case. That's it.


Final Words

Ashley

I honestly didn't know I was going home. I probably am an idiot for thinking that (chuckles) 'cause I was the biggest threat that Rob could have taken to the Final Three. And as much as I would love to be sitting there in the Final Three, I still have nothing to hang my head about and I'm proud of how I played the game, and I wouldn't change anything.

(voting for Rob) No big surprise here. You did a great job. I'd much rather have played this game with you than against you, but, hey, you know it's the way it works.

(voting for Phillip) Hey, Phillip. Take that money and spend it wisely. (...) and I feel sorry for you. And I love you, man. Have a great one.

Trivia

Behind The Scenes

  • Due to time constraints, the Rites of Passage ritual for the fallen castaways was omitted at the final edit of the episode, though CBS released the said clip on their YouTube account and the CBS website.
  • The final three repainted the back side of the Murlonio tribe flag with "Ometepe."

Life at Ponderosa

  • Rob and Natalie planned to return the rocks Julie collected as souvenirs to her children to her, but decided to throw them into the ocean after Julie's malicious remarks at the Final Tribal Council. The final three sits down to eat with the others at Ponderosa. The next day, the jury and finalists sit down to one last meal together before heading home that day and some of them discuss their experience playing the game.[2]

Other

  • All first-time contestants eliminated before the merge did not have a chance to speak at the live reunion show.
  • This was the first episode since "We Hate Our Tribe" where a member of Ometepe was eliminated from the game.
  • This episode was divided into two parts in some countries.
