Survivor: Borneo boxscores - Episode 4
"Too Little, Too Late?"
By Jeff Pitman | Published: February 3, 2015

Filmed: March 22-24, 2000 |  Aired: June 21, 2000
RC: Tagi wins more stuff
IC: Tagi wins again
Ramona voted out, 4-2-1

 

  • Reward challenge: "SOS Signal" - Tagi wins a Target crate with towels, TP, spices, and a filet knife.
  • Immunity challenge: "Buried Treasure" - Colleen gets Pagong out to a large deficit, which is not aided by Gervase's multiple rest stops during the jungle run. But Jenna & Gretchen fail to dig up Pagong's chest, while Rudy & Hatch do it for Tagi, long after both key retrievers return. Tagi wins. Ramona sits out.
  • Voted out: Ramona, 4-2-1, over Colleen and Jenna.

 

Episode 4 scoring notes

Notes: Nobody appeared to sit out during the reward challenge, despite uneven numbers. We've scored that as a six-person challenge for Tagi, and a seven-person one for Pagong. Ramona, however, clearly sat out the immunity challenge, even though her doing so was not officially announced. First Survivor sit-out? (Six-person challenge for each tribe.)

 

Vote count:

- Ramona received 4 votes, from Colleen, Jenna, Gretchen, and Joel (voted out, 4-2-1).

- Colleen received 2 votes, from Ramona and Gervase.

- Jenna received 1 vote, from Greg.

Glossary of terms
  • Challenge stats
    • ChW: Challenge Wins. For tribal challenges, a contestant earns a fraction of 1 win, depending on if they participated (no points for sitting out). So in a five-person tribe's win, each participant gets (1/5) of a point, or 0.2 points. Duels (or individual RCs as in Ep1) at Redemption Island count as half a challenge (and half a win). Individual challenge wins count as a full point.
    • ChA: Challenge Appearances. Used to calculate ChW%. Fractional for tribal challenges (same as ChW), except sit-outs get charged for an appearance, because they could have participated.
    • ChW%: Challenge Win%. Simply, ChW% = ChW / ChA.
    • SO: The number of times a contestant sat out of a challenge.
  • Tribal Council stats
    • VFB: Votes For Bootee. The number of times the contestant has voted for the person who was ultimately voted out. Applies only to initial votes (no points for revotes in case of a tie). Special case: In a final three TC, where only one vote is cast (by the F3 IC winner), only that vote counts.
    • VAP: Votes Against the Player. The total number of tribal council votes cast against the contestant. Again, only initial votes count (no penalty for revotes), and here a hidden immunity idol (if played) erases the votes. In the special case of a final three tribal council above, only the F3 bootee receives a vote against.
    • TotV: Total votes cast during the tribal councils the player has attended (again, only initial votes count). Used to adjust for different vote totals as tribes shrink.
    • TCA: Tribal council appearances. The number of times a contestant has attended tribal council (at which they voted).
    • TC%: Tribal Council percent. Attempts to reward voting for the bootee (which players controlling the vote almost always do), while punishing receiving votes yourself. The formula is: TC% = [VFB - (VAP/TotV)] / TCA.
    • wTCR: weighted Tribal Council Ratio. Very similar in intent to TC%, but calculated as a ratio of VFB to VAP, while also scaling to a uniform number of TC appearances. The formula is as follows: wTCR =2* [VFB / (4+VAP)] x (14/TCA). I originally tried (1+VAP) to avoid dividing by zero, but this overly rewarded getting zero votes against relative to just one vote against, which seemed silly. (4+VAP) scaled that effect back comfortably. 14 was used as the scaling factor for TC appearances because there are usually 14 episodes, then a final scaling factor of 2 to bring maximal scores up to roughly even with ChW and JV% high scores.
  • Jury stats
    • JVF: Number of jury votes for the contestant to win. Maximum nine (Earl Cole, Fiji), theoretically.
    • TotJ: Total number of jurors. Necessary to not punish unanimous 7-juror winners (JT Thomas, Tocantins).
    • JV%: The percent of total jury votes cast for the contestant, or Jur% = JVF/ TotJ. This number is used, raw, in SurvSc, and is scaled in SurvAv (multiplied by six) to make it similar in size to ChW and wTCR.
  • Overall scores
    • Survival Score (SurvSc). It's simply the sum of Challenge Win% (ChW%) + Tribal Council% (TC%) + Jury Vote%, for a maximum possible score of 2 (3 after the finale).
    • Survival Average (SurvAv). It's a simple sum of fractional Challenge Wins (ChW), weighted TC Ratio (wTCR), and (eventually) a weighted Jury%. The latter two max out at six points total, for a theoretical maximum score of around 18 or so.
