^1 In She's Been Using Him, and He Still Hasn't Realized It, the vote ended with a 2-2 tie between Astor and Genette, forcing a revote. At the revote, Zak switched his vote to Genette, eliminating her.


Genette, upon returning from Survivor, she's simply gone back to chopping a shipping wood. She does plan to return to Survivor, but will only do it when she isn't swamped with work.



  • Genette was originally slated to be African-American. This was changed to Indian-American mainly to have more ethnic diversity within the cast.
  • Genette is my first character to have been afflicted by the Car Curse.
