Survivor: Borneo boxscores - Episode 6
"Udder Revenge"
By Jeff Pitman | Published: February 3, 2015

Filmed: March 28-30, 2000 | Aired: July 5, 2000
RC: Pagong wins more food
IC: Tagi wins
Joel voted out, 4-2

 

  • Reward challenge: "Abandoned Barracks" - With a whopping five people sitting out, Hatch manages to disqualify Tagi on the final item retrieved (he grabs a duplicate knife), so Pagong wins MREs, canned food, and chocolate.
  • Immunity challenge: "Obstacle Course" - With a mere three people sitting out, the editing makes Tagi appear to have a huge lead, but it's actually quite close up until the finish line, where eventually, Tagi wins.
  • Voted out: Joel, 4-2, over Jenna.

 

Episode 6 scoring notes

Notes: If the last episode's reward challenge seemed to have a bizarre, completely unnecessary number of sit-outs, this episode decided to top that. Colleen and Rudy sat out BOTH challenges, which is what happens when the tribes are crucially matched up at six versus five, but you make one challenge for three people and the other for four. MAYBE the IC was designed that way for some other reason than to protect Rudy and give Tagi a fighting chance at hitting the merge even with Pagong, but... we can't think of one. Wow. So... RC had three people competing per tribe, and IC four.

 

In Tribal Council, a couple of historical notes: First, Gervase continues his historical string of voting for the wrong person here, voting for Jenna instead of Joel. Second, this was the only time in his entire Survivor experience that Greg voted for the person booted. Good job? (Also, note that in SurvAv, Gretchen has far and away the best score, making her exactly the right person for Tagi to target at the merge.)

 

One more thing: It's difficult to tell from the episode what really happened, when. By the show's date stamps, both tribes received the RC treemail (with dog food) on the second day (Day 17), for that night's RC. Then the next day, the Green Berets show up with treemail/instructions for the obstacle course, to be held "tomorrow" (which would have to be Day 19, but is shown as Day 18). It's possible the Green Berets actually came to camp before the RC was even held, but it's all very confusing to a poor webmaster who's just trying to accurately fill out a calendar. Thanks, SEG.

 

Vote count:

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

- Jenna received 2 votes, from Joel and Gervase.

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.
