When live tweeting during the east coast broadcast, Jeff Probst (@JeffProbst) revealed that the pig-eating immunity challenge "was originally an entire pig - face, snout, tail etc.," but that during the run through done by show staff ahead of time it was decided it needed to be toned down.
Jeff states that a new Survivor record is made. Jim and Brandon carry 240 pounds during a weight challenge.
Ozzy is the first contestant in "Survivor" history to return to play a third time without ever competing in either "Survivor: All-Stars" or "Heroes vs. Villiains"l

"Survivor: South Pacific" was filmed in Samoa, making it the third time the show has filmed there. This is the first time that a location has been used more than twice. The tribe names, Upolu and Savaii, are named after the two biggest islands in Samoa. It was reported that this season was originally going to be filmed in Tonga (an island nearby Samoa), but plans had to change after some production delays.
This season marks the sixth time that previous contestants have returned to play the game after "All-Stars", "Guatemala", "Fans vs. Favorites", "Heroes vs. Villains" and "Redemption Island".
This season was titled "Survivor: South Pacific". The season premiere episode was 1 hour and 30 minutes long.
