Pagong (verb): to Pagong, meaning to go into the merge with a majority or better strategic planning, and one-by-one, take down the rest of the opposing players. Also implies a certain amount of ineptitude or lack of game knowledge.
Rotu (verb): to Rotu, meaning to have a powerful alliance in position to win the game but by hubris, poor gameplay, or both to find your alliance voted off quickly. Implies a swift and ugly fall.
Any others I'm missing or haven't been mentioned?

Pagong \pä - 'go[ng]\ (verb) -ed -ing: The systematic elimination of one tribe/alliance by another in a post-merge situation. In Vanuatu, the women Pagonged most of the men, but Chris snuck through and won.
PRoD \'präd\ (noun): The Purple Rock of Death. Last seen in a tie-breaker in the Marquesas, in which it eliminated Paschal in a fit of irony. Also, the last tie-breaker situation seen in Survivor. Ever since the Marquesas, no one has gone for a tie since everyone fears the PRoD.

Ulong \ü - 'lo[ng]\ (verb) -ed -ing: The systematic elimination of one tribe by another in a pre-merge situation. This can be due to the winning tribe's dominance, the losing tribe's ineptitude, or a combination of both. If Drake hadn't decided to throw that one immunity challenge, they could have totally Ulonged the Morgan tribe.
Koror \kō - 'rôr\ (verb) -ed -ing: The absolute domination of one tribe/alliance over another. Even after the switch, Rotu still Korored the other tribe.

Survivor contestants, regardless of race, can be divided into two categories: people who "play the game" and play to win, and people like Gabe in Marquesas who apply and go on Survivor "for the experience."
So, then, is it by chance that one person each time, each season of Survivor, wins $1 million at the end of the game/season? Could someone like Gabe in Marquesas come in, enjoy "the experience" of Survivor, and win $1 million by chance? Do you get what I'm saying?

Means on the outside of a tribe or an alliance, which effectively gives the person on the outs a chance to "switch it up," get some people in the minority, who aren't in the alliance, usually of four people, together, and vote off someone in the majority alliance.

Most common example:
"So, who are you voting for tonight?"
"I know nothing! Nothing!"
Pixelbait: An item of clothing that attracts pixels, such as Amanda's shorts.

whereas Tom Westman is a challenge monster like Colby Donaldson and Terry Deitz.
This is true, before the awesomeness of Palau introduced the concept of "man-strength" into Survivor lexicon, conventional wisdom would have dictated that Bobby-Jon (or Ankle Jeff; or Ibrehem) would have dominated the challenges. But none of that happened, and Koror dominated both the team and individual challenges, with Tom taking out BJ one on one in many occasions.
which brings us to -
"Man Strength" : Intangible reservoir of will that "older" men can tap into to thrash their younger gym bunny counterparts. See examples - Mike Skupin v. Colby, Rupert (ugh) v. Osten, Tom v. Bobby Jon, Terry v. Aras..

Alpha Moron \ˈal-fə ˈmȯr-ˌän\ noun : A contestant, most likely male, with all their brains in their biceps, and not as much of either as they think.
It appears that Survivor: One World has a pair of alpha morons with self-given nicknames of "Tarzan".
