Each week former SurvivorNZ player Shannon Quinn and Survivor super-fan Ryan Brink will go head to head ranking each players likelihood of being voted out in the next episode from safest to most in danger.
The Rulebook: To play this game and for those of you following along, we will be using the traditional Gordon Holmes Power Rankings system to determine the winner. The ranking of the person who is voted out of the next episode will determine the number of points the players will earn.
Note: We rank our players from who we believe is least likely to most likely to be sent home that episode. These are not ranking of who we believe is going to win.
Shannon – 135 Points (+1)
Ryan – 131 Points (+1)
Tess has played a great social game throughout and now has some very influential friends on the Jury because of it. That coupled with the recent immunity wins and the classic under-dog story may just put her in the lead. In the end it all comes down to what the Jury values…. If it’s a bitter Jury who value loyalty (which seems likely) then i think Tess may take the crown this year.
Lisa has done an incredible job this season, she acted out her game flawlessly; playing the ‘weak, non-threatening’ card so convincingly to her tribe in the early days and then coming forward and making the moves when they really counted to get out her strongest competitors . I feel like she’ll have a great final speech to the Jury, I hope it’ll be enough to make them respect her style of gameplay, but who knows?! I think she’ll be facing a lot of backlash, it really could go either way.
Poor Dave…. I genuinely thought he had a real shot at winning but now it seems highly unlikely. It’s a shame that the Jury is about to tear him apart due to his old buddy Matt, it’s not his fault they both got selected? How else should he have handled this whole scenario? Anyway well done Dave, I hope they at least can see past your ‘advantage’ and acknowledge the rest of your game also.
DEAD TO US – Tara
Tess is locked for 3 votes in my mind. She needs 4. Brad, Adam and Renee are all voting for her. She has been able to make the end without blood on her hands and friendships with those who are about to cast their vote. Her best bet to win is to sway Eve. Time will tell
#2 Dave: (SNAKE OF THE WEEK)
Dave is in a horrible spot after Matt announced to the jury their friendship. After talking with Tara on this weeks exit interview I’ve been swayed that he could win. I still think he has a chance of getting 3 or 4 votes (Arun, Tara, Eve and Matt)
Lisa has been the best strategic player of the 3 remaining. She has built connections and relationships, but will her moves come back to bite her. I struggle after watching Jury Villa to see where her votes come from. I think there is a lot of misunderstanding from the Jury about how wonderful she is playing. Could she be the deciding vote in a 3-3-1 scenario?
