‘Survivor: Samoa’ Power Rankings Challenge: Week 12

The Rules: Each week, “Survivor: Tocantins’s” Tamara “Taj” George and your beloved “Survivor” recapper Gordon “Truth Seeker” Holmes will create separate power rankings. The ranking of the person who is voted out of that Thursday’s episode will determine the number of points the two combatants will earn. For example, if Mick is voted out this week, Taj will receive 2 points and Gordon will receive 5 points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Samoa” Power Rankings Challenge Champion and be presented with the coveted Golden Probsty Award.

Last Episode: Both “Danger” Dave and Monica were voted out in a dual elimination episode. This helped Taj gain some ground on Gordon as she earned 14 points while he only received a measly 7 points. The current score is now Taj: 128, Gordon: 131.

Taj’s Picks:

1 1 Russell H.: Whatever Evil Russell wants, Evil Russell gets! Evil Russell is determined to win “Survivor: Samoa” and I believe he will. Every week I want to believe that someone will take a stand and take him out but no such luck thus far! It looks like Mick and Natalie might try to stand up in the weeks to come but I’m tired of getting my hopes up. Go Evil Russell!
2 2 Mick: He’s doing better in the challenges as the game is coming to an end. Things are looking much better for Mick but nothing is set in stone. Now it appears that he has created a side alliance with Natalie and Brett. Good for him! It’s good for him that there will be three sitting in front of the jury instead of two. He actually has a chance of winning.
3 3 Natalie: I really like this girl. She’s a little spitfire. I think if she can make it to the final three like Brett and Mick are promising her she will take the money from both of them. If not Evil Russell, my vote is for Natalie.
4 4 Jaison: I like the guy but I’m not seeing enough drive or determination from him. He’s playing too low to the field. If he doesn’t find a strategic bone in his body soon he’ll be the next to go after Shambo. No one really needs him anymore. He needs to find a way to get the other players out or win challenges to be able to stick around. Neither seems likely!
5 5 Brett: This guy is dangerous. He’s good at challenges and he is sweet enough for someone to want to be in an alliance with him. With that being said, the entire jury so far is comprised of the Galu tribe. If Brett is in the final three his tribe may just vote for him to get back at the Foa Foa tribe. If the remaining Foa Foa members are smart they would get rid of Brett and Shambo, respectively.
6 7 Shannon: What a cute character. Now its time to go bye, bye! Shambo actually thought that she was in complete control of the game. I really dislike when contestants on a game like “Survivor,” where one is expected to outplay, outwit, and outlast the competition, complains when someone is not being honest. What in the world?! Until Shambo learns the name of the game, I think she should sit on the jury and watch and learn. But I still think she’s a doll.

Gordon’s Picks:

Russell H.: With the immunity idol out and in the open, he might as well use it this week for fear of them trying to flush it out. As far as the rest of his game, you’re going to hear a lot of talk about Russell being the best player of all time. I won’t go that far, but I would easily dub him “Most Entertaining.”
2 4 Shannon: Our favorite chicken whisperer is the only person on this list who can’t win this game. There’s no way she can win a jury vote unless the person she’s up against punches a kitten, a puppy, and a baby during their final tribal council speech. With that being said, Shambo must be the popular pick to take to the end.
3 1 Natalie: Right now I’m predicting a Natalie/Shambo/Russell final three. And if that happens, the only way Natalie can win is if the “I Vote for Nice People” jury members outnumber the “I Vote for Strong Strategy” members.
4 6 Jaison: Does Jaison really think that he and Russell have been making all the decisions? Really?! I can’t imagine Jaison taking home the top prize. The vibe I get from the players I’ve interviewed is that Jaison isn’t very well respected at all.
5 7 Mick: Mick: The Foa Foa Four can’t last forever. I think when it’s time to start cutting some people loose, Russell’s going to bounce Mick first.
6 8 Brett: All of the former Galu members seem to think Brett has been playing an amazing game. I’ll have to take their word for it, because we haven’t seen much. I’d imagine he’ll be joining the jury as soon as he loses an immunity challenge.
