Tribe History

  • Post-Switch Coyopa is currently the only Blood vs. Water tribe to start with the most number of loved ones pairs possible in a tribe, with three pairs on a seven-person tribe.
  • Jaclyn Schultz stayed at the Coyopa camp (or at Exile Island) for the entire 39 days, since she made the finals while on Coyopa for the entire pre-merge and the tribes merged at the Coyopa camp.
  • Val and Dale, both from Coyopa, returned in Survivor: Cambodia, this time as Jeremy and Kelley's loved ones on the Loved Ones Challenge.
