Tribe History

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



  • Tikiano is the first merged tribe from a season with contestants split by gender to merge with both genders represented equally, at a 6-6 ratio.
  • Tikiano is the fifth merged tribe to merge with twelve members, following Aiga, Libertad, Murlonio, and Te Tuna.
    • However, as opposed to the previous four, it was included in an 18-contestant season not containing Redemption Island, leaving only six Tribal Council's before the merge. (Only four of these Tribal Councils involved votes, due to the evacuations of Kourtney Moon and Colton Cumbie.)
  • Tikiano is the first tribe to be merged in the sixth episode, making the episode the earliest merger by episode count. However, it is beaten by Gitanos if one counts by the number of days elapsed.
  • Tikiano is the second merged tribe from a season with contestants split by gender to have black as its color, following Gitanos of Survivor: Panama.
  • Tikiano is the second black merged tribe of a season in which the location is Samoa, following Yin Yang of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.
  • Tikiano is the second consecutive merged tribe beginning with a T, following Te Tuna.
  • Kat Edorsson and Troyzan Robertson are the only members of Tikiano to appear in a future season, as all other One World returnees were eliminated before the merge.
  • Tikiano is the third merged tribe to vote out its first member by a margin of 10-2, following Aiga and Libertad of Survivor: Samoa and Survivor: Nicaragua respectively.
