Tribe History

The White Collars

The Tables Turn




  • Masaya is the first original tribe since Ravu from Survivor: Fiji to have more than one Asian-American woman.
  • Masaya is the first yellow tribe since Zhan Hu to lose the first challenge.
  • Carolyn Rivera and Joaquin Souberbielle are the only members of the tribe to not be from California at the time of filming.
  • Masaya is the first tribe on a three-tribe format season to lose the first Immunity Challenge, but not lose the subsequent challenges after.
  • Masaya is the first tribe in as three-tribe season to be dissolved, but not have the lowest number of tribe members left. However, it still follows the pattern of the past three-tribe seasons in which the first tribe to have lost a challenge would be the one dissolved eventually.
    • A possible reason of its dissolution is the location, as the Masaya beach is the same as the one used for Exile Island in Survivor: San Juan del Sur, and was mentioned by Joaquin as having little food sources.
