Hidden idol playing notes

This is a list of the most "successful" (in terms of votes canceled out) idol plays in Survivor history. "Play #" simply refers to which idol play (in chronological order) the contestant made that a particular season, since several played more than one idol.

 

*We included Sarah Lacina's (/Sierra's) Game Changers Legacy Advantage, because it acted as a time-restricted idol.

 

Additional note: Thanks to Lorenzo Quiogue and to James Honaker for catching errors.

 

Hidden idol plays glossary
  • IP: Idols played. The credit for playing (and voiding votes) should go to the person who first reveals the idol at Tribal Council, whether they hand it to Probst themself, or hand it off to someone else, who then plays it. Idols handed off at camp, however, become credited to the person wielding them at Tribal. So when Russell hands over JT's idol to Parvati (in camp) in Heroes vs. Villains, he and JT have both relinquished their claim to that idol. In contrast, Malcolm gets credit for both idols played after handing Eddie his extra idol at the Three Amigos Tribal in Caramoan.
  • VV: Votes voided. When an idol is played, the number of votes against eliminated by the idol.
