Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|Which castaway became the Sole Survivor of "Survivor: China"?||Survivor: China
Todd. After a final vote on Day 39 in China, the million dollars was awarded to Todd Herzog over Courtney Yates and Amanda Himmel. Todd received four votes, one each from Peih-Gee, Frosti, Jaime, and Jean-Robert, because he allegedly played a better game. Courtney came in second place with two votes, one each from Denise and James, while Amanda's vote came from Erik. Todd ended up receiving votes from the four previous Tribal Councils but he ended up surviving each elimination to come back and win; he also never won Individual Immunity, instead winning through pure strategy. Neither Amanda nor Courtney received votes during previous Tribal Councils.
Seven . Although the two previous seasons upped the amount of jury members to nine exiled tribe members, "Survivor: China" returned the jury standings to the typical seven people beginning with Jaime, the first person to be eliminated following the tribal merge. In the end, like the last few seasons, three people advanced to the final Tribal Council to compete for the million dollar votes. This ensured that there was no possibility of a tie game though this could have happened with nine people on the jury (in the case of a 3-3-3 vote).
|Which castaway unveiled a fake Immunity Idol at Tribal Council before their elimination?||Survivor: China
Jaime. Before the merge, Jaime discovered the idols in a castaway's belongings (and by discovered, I mean she rooted through their bags) and believed she knew where to find her own. When she presented her placard at Tribal Council on Day 21 she surprised everyone, but Jeff informed her that she was not in possession of anything of value and threw the placard into the fire. During the same Tribal Council, Jaime was eliminated with a vote of 7-3 to become the first jury member. This was the first time in "Survivor" history that a castaway blindly used a non-idol.
Hae Da Fung. On Day 19, the two tribes united for a feast and a merge. At the feast, the castaways were unaware that awareness of their surroundings would play a large role in the next Immunity Challenge, during which they needed to recall details of their previous day. Later on, the castaways named their new, black-buffed tribe Hae Da Fung, a name which meant 'Black Fighting Wind'. They lived at the earlier Fei Long camp because they had merged with the most tribe members.
|After the tribal switch on Day 13, which castaway did not flip onto a different team?||Survivor: China
Courtney. When tribes awaited their Reward Challenge on Day 13, they instead received a note asking that they circle two names of members of the other tribe. Those two members were then sent to the opposing tribe as permanent additions. James and Aaron, Fei Long's strongest (physically), went to Zhan Hu. Frosty and Sherea headed to Fei Long. Despite the switch, Zhan Hu was unable to overcome their losing streak for another several days (partially because of a decision to throw the challenge). The decisions made during the switch greatly impacted Zhan Hu's successes in the long-term.
|Where were the two Hidden Immunity Idols found in this season?||Survivor: China
In the tribes' camps. When a kidnapped tribe member appeared in the opposition's camp they were required to hand off a sealed clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol located within their respective camps. Both tribes received the same clues as both were in the same spots, on the side of a pagoda at the entrance to their camps. When Todd located the placard in the Fei Long camp, he gave it to an opposing team member to protect them from the next vote. That person went on to claim the second idol as well.
|On the first day of the competition, the castaways were left with nothing but the clothes on their back and a copy of which literature written by Sun Tzu?||Survivor: China
The Art of War . Leaving Shanghai on a train and then taking a truck to their destination, the sixteen castaways were asked to enjoy a welcoming ceremony before dropping their things and heading out with their maps to their new campsites. They were also handed a single copy of "The Art of War", a work which should inspire their gameplay. Both tribes had their camps erected near the Zhelin Reservoir. Fei Long wore red while Zhan Hu wore yellow and both had eight members.
