Fallen Comrades Challenge

Interesting note from Mario Lanza’s book, When It Was Worth Playing For:

Fallen Comrades – challenge where the players are asked trivia questions about the other players’/jury members’ personal info

In Season 3, Survivor Africa, the producers made a mistake –

Q: Which contestant doesn’t have any piercings?”

Kim: Kelly (correct)

Lex: Lindsay (actually also correct, but is told it’s the wrong answer)

It seems that producers were unaware Lindsay also did not have any piercings, but this mistake cost Lex, and also somewhat, Big Tom, their games. It was theorized that Big Tom + Lex were paid off and/or guaranteed spots in Season 8, All Stars, because of this.

This also ended the Fallen Comrades challenge for good – except that it had already been filmed in Marquesas, so we do see it one last time in Season 4. (Although in my opinion, it probably would’ve ended soon anyway since in Season 4, Vecepia wrote down everyone’s personal info in preparation for this challenge – that’d get old very quickly + also completely takes the challenge out of it).

Top 5 Immunity Challenges

I know 100% my biggest challenge strength would be endurance. As a runner, I live Mind > Matter every single day. Here are the immunity challenges I believe I would win in order from 1-5 (with 1 = most likely to win and most want to try).

That being said, throwing back one of Jeff’s special ocean milkshakes might prove more difficult than I imagine, but it’s still one I’d love to take a shot at. 😂

Slide Puzzles

That one time Zeke replied to me on Twitter sharing how he absolutely owned that slide puzzle in Survivor Millenials vs. Gen X… amazing. TYSM.

Update: I tried the app! On my first attempt, I finished a 16-square slide puzzle (below) in 4 minutes. I have no idea of what a good time range for solving it would be, but felt pretty quick for a first attempt!
