Little easter eggs like this definitely exist, and if it is true that Mark Burnett really likes Lord of the Flies, then this would make complete sense. Super interesting theory.

Edgardo Edgic wrote:What is the "fly theory"? SM claimed way back on the original ASS that the fly represented "death/disaster" and getting hit by one was significant enough to eliminate a player from contention. Mariano Man picked up on this theory last season and disproved Panurge's storyline thread by using the "fly theory" to eliminate Cochran. When Edgic had reduced the prospective winner field down to 2 players (Sophie/Coach) MM used the fly theory to correctly pick Sophie as the winner, because the fly had hit and thus eliminated Coach (as well as Ozzy, Cochran, Rick and Brandon). The fly has hit a handful of players over the years and none have ever gone on to win the game. *ONLY exception to this rule is Ethan Zohn, however, this happened on S3 and the official "fly theory" did not begin until it hit Rob Mariano on ASS. Since then, it has been used as a kiss of death and in recent seasons has been taking out victims in much larger numbers. By now the fly is a successful Survivor serial killer and we must be on the look out for new victims. S24 had its first last week - RIP Kat Edorrsen. Who's Next??

Mariano M4n wrote:since the inception of the "fly theory" during Season 8 ASS, the fly has only hit two winners; Parvati and Tyson. It has to physically land on the player's body to count.
The editors allowed a fly to strike Parvati and Tyson? Doesn't that end the theory? NO!!
Parvati won a season with a player (JFP) who played before S8. Tyson won a season with a player who also played before S8 (Gervase). The fly theory only pertains to S8 onward players, and seasons with players from before S8 aren't part of the theory.
Therefore, Parvati (s16) Sandra (s20) Denise (s25) Tyson (s27) and ??? (s31) all are not fly theory acceptable seasons. Throw out the fly theory for these seasons with very old returnees.
S30 IS a fly theory eligible season. We've seen it hit Tyler on the face (usual landing spot) during a challenge, and I believe it hit Jenn in that same challenge. Jenn claiming something "stung me" doesn't count. It has to be a FLY and it has to land on the body.
If anyone else has other players from S30 struck by a fly then please post. This theory is alive, well and better than ever.
