Tribe History[]

Tavua was formed on Day 7 at the tribe switch, when the final 18 players drew buffs. The six who had drawn green buffs were sent to the new Tavua beach, which forced the tribe members to start anew with minimal supplies. Tavua was composed mostly of former members of Nuku, with the exception of Troyzan Robertson, who had been a former Mana. Thus, he was relegated to the bottom of the totem pole. In order to overcome the numerical disadvantage, Troyzan set out to find a Hidden Immunity Idol. He found a clue in a glass bottle, directing him to the rear right corner of the puzzle table at the upcoming Immunity Challenge.

Tavua ended up winning the Immunity Challenge and abstained from Tribal Council. After their victory, Troyzan seized the opportunity to pocket the idol. For coming in second place in the challenge, Tavua took an assortment of spices back with them to camp.

Tavua lost the next Reward Challenge on Day 10, but recovered to win the next three challenges. On Day 14, a second tribe switch dissolved Tavua, spreading the fourteen remaining castaways to the two original tribes, Mana and Nuku.

Trivia[]

  • Tavua is the third tribe to have their Hidden Immunity Idol hidden at an Immunity Challenge, after Ta Keo and Bayon. It would be followed by Tiva.
  • Despite all six members of Tavua reaching at least the final twelve, no two members of the tribe finished with consecutive placements.
  • Tavua's camp was previously used as the campsites for Vanua and Vinaka in Millennials vs. Gen X. This fact came into play when Ozzy found a fake idol that Zeke had hidden in a bush last season.[1]
  • Tavua is the most recent tribe to be dissolved before the merge.
