How Long Have They Been in “The Good Place”?
Attempt #1: 25 days (approximately)
I skimmed over the 1st season, following the context of each episode (how many days they said passed) as well as the different days shown in each episode with day to night and costume changes. I specifically looked at Eleanor and Chidi’s outfits, as Jason and Janet wear the same thing each day and Tahani changes her clothes multiple times in a single day.
Attempt #2: 1 day
Attempt #3: 128 days (likely the most successful attempt)
Attempt #11: 43 days
Attempt #108: .5 days (Eleanor finds out before she’s introduced to The Good Place)
Unknown Attempt #: 1 day (Eleanor finds out at the welcome party)
Unknown attempt #: .5 days (It seems that Eleanor finds out at Orientation)
Attempt #484: 0 days (Michael just rants)
Attempt #649: At least 3 days (Chidi and Eleanor typically meet on day 3)
Unknown Attempt #: 55 days (I’m assuming it’s a different attempt from #649, because Janet’s uniform is different-though she could’ve been rebooted)
Attempt #802: 7 days (Michael says they’re a week in)
Mindy St. Claire’s Place: At least 8 days (according to Mindy)
Day Ones: There have been 802 attempts, not counting the 11 attempts we know about, there have been 791 “Day Ones”.
Counting all the days we know for a fact happened, they’ve been in “The Good Place” for 1,063 days or close to 3 years.
However, by averaging out the days of the 10 attempts (excluding #649) where we know the specific day that they ended on, we have an average number of 25 days (rounding down) per attempt. Which is the same number I calculated for attempt #1, so that seems right.
25 days is the average. So, by multiplying that by the 792 other attempts, we have 19,800 days.
And adding the days we do know about, that is 20,069 days or close to 55 years.
Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason have been in the “The Good Place,” anywhere between 3 to 55 years.
