The “Survivor: Tocantins” Power Rankings Challenge: Round 9

The Rules: Each week, “Survivor: Gabon” alumni and former Onion Alliance kingpin Charlie Herschel and your beloved “Survivor” recapper Gordon Holmes will create separate power rankings. The ranking of the person who is voted out of that Thursday’s episode will determine the amount of points the two combatants will earn. For example, if Coach is voted out this week, Charlie will receive 5 points and Gordon will receive 6 points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Tocantins” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.

Betting on the “Survivor: Tocantins” Power Rankings Challenge is strictly prohibited and somewhat foolish as Charlie has picked the booted castaway 5 WEEKS IN A ROW!

Last Week: Sierra got the old heave-ho, earning Charlie 7 points and earning Gordon 5 points. The current score is now Herschel 74 – Holmes 67.

Taj: Taj is quietly tiptoeing to the end of this game without upsetting any jury members. And when the inevitable Stephen/JT showdown happens, she’ll come off smelling like a rose.

Stephen: Right now, Stephen must be wrestling with this fact: he can easily come in second place with JT, or he can boot him and maybe win the whole thing. He’d better act soon.

Erinn: What does it mean that Erinn voted for Stephen?  Is she breaking from the group? Probably not, she probably had a deal where she wouldn’t vote for Sierra and was throwing away her vote.

JT: JT’s safe for this week, but I would not be surprised if Stephen and Taj can convince Erinn to send JT packing next week.

Deb: Deb’s time is going to be up very soon, but I think they have bigger fish to fry right now.

Coach: Tough call this week, but I’m guessing it’s about time for Coach to lay down his lance. Whether or not he holds any power, he’s still an immunity threat. Fare thee well, sweet Dragon Slayer.

Erinn: Erinn is #1 for me this week NOT because she has any chance of winning but because she is the one person in the new majority alliance that everyone will want to take to the finals.  The main question is who will be the lucky contestant who will win the final immunity and get to take Erinn to the finals and bank a million?

JT: I think JT is going to win this game by being likable, being athletic, and being strategic in voting out Stephen before the finals.

Stephen: Stephen, get rid of JT NOW.  NOW.  It’s your chance.  NOW.  I don’t think he has it in him and I think it will cost him the game.

Deb: Debbie is a pawn and has no control.  But the people who control her might want to keep her a few more rounds.

Coach: No need to get rid of Coach just yet because he really believes that he is running this game and doesn’t appear to be a threat to Stephen and JT’s strategy.  But there is no reason to keep Coach either.

Taj: Before Stephen and JT can get rid of each other, I think they’ll want to get rid of likable Mom, Taj.  Can they convince the rest of the tribe to blindside her in order to flush the hidden immunity idol, which she doesn’t really have?  That’s what I would do.  Except if I were Stephen, in which case I would try to get rid of JT NOW.
