Voting Confessionals

(voting against Chris) Chris, I'm making this vote to save my own butt, and it's definitely strategy. Good luck, bud.

S9 brady t
Brady

(voting against Rory) If you get voted off tonight, we'll miss your sage comments around camp. Right now, man, it's all about team and winning.

S9 chris t
Chris

(voting against Brook) Just playing the game, man. I started playing it when I got to the beach. It's all part of the game.


Final Words

S9 brook bw
Brook

The one thing I didn't want was to be the first person off. Who the hell wants to be the first person off? But, uh, during these three days in the game, I don't think I have learned much about myself. My only problem was the other seventeen people here just gave me an absolute schooling in the game of Survivor. So, uh, you know, I got beat. The bottom line, someone got me and they got me good. Peace out, Survivor land.

Trivia

  • This episode was meant to have 90 minutes, but the production decided to make a 60 minutes episode one week before its airing.[2]
  • This episode is the only time that eventual winner Chris Daugherty received votes against him.
  • This is the only pre-merge episode of Vanuatu where Rory Freeman is present and the eliminated player does not vote against him.
  • Lopevi's defeat mirrors Tambaqui's loss during the first Immunity Challenge of Survivor: The Amazon, where the all-male tribe dominated through the course, but stumbled with the balance section of the challenge.
    • The results of both seasons' first Tribal Councils are also mirrored: a physical young male was voted out, while one other older contestant received three votes against, and a third contestant of different ethnicity received one vote against.
