Tribe History

Newtorch This section is empty. You can help by adding to it.



  • Nobag is the first and so far only merged tribe name derived from the season name (Nobag is "Gabon" spelled backwards).
    • However, it is the first merged tribe to have its name derived from a backward spelling. Enil Edam of Survivor: Caramoan is the second.
    • Revealed by Crystal Cox in an unaired scene, the contestants were originally going to name the merged tribe "Kotang" as a combination of the two original tribes Kota and Fang. It was until Ken Hoang came up with the name Nobag.
  • Every member of Nobag, except for Matty Whitmore and Bob Crowley, has switched tribes at some point.
  • Nobag is the shortest lasting merged tribe, lasting only 12 days.
    • It was formed on Day 27 and disbanded on Day 39.
  • Nobag is one of 5 merged tribes to enter the merge with half of the entire cast remaining. the other 4 tribes were, Chuay Jai, Chaboga Mogo, Dabu, and Yin Yang.
