Post Tribe Swap
The first two contestants out of the game were Tainui members even thought they won the first four Immunity Challenges.
- Becca quit before Ngapuhi voted out their first player.
- Kandace was removed before the second Immunity Challenge for cheating while submitting her score.
Tainui is the first tribe to win 5 Immunity Challenges in a row.
The Post-Swap Tainui Tribe was made of a majority of Original Ngapuhi members.
