‘Survivor: Nicaragua’ Power Rankings – Round 9

The Rules: Each week, “Survivor: Tocantins” and “Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains” star Benjamin “Coach” Wade and XFINITY TV’s “Survivor” recapper Gordon Holmes will create separate power rankings. The ranking of the person who is voted out of the next episode will determine the number of points the two players will earn. For example, if Sash is voted out this week, Coach will receive 9 points and Gordon will receive 1 point. At the end of the season, the person or team with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Nicaragua” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.

Last Week: Team Dragon Slayer and Team Truth Seeker tied again! They both had Marty in spot eleven. The current score is now Team Dragon Slayer 107, Team Truth Seeker 111.

Before we get into the battle, let’s check in with our two combatants.

Gordon Holmes: So, as I’m sure you’ve heard…we’re electing the first-ever class into the ‘Survivor’ Hall of Fame. I was interested in your top five. Although, you should know in my role as Senior Chairman of the Executive Voting Committee I can’t let any of your picks sway my vote.
Benjamin ‘Coach’ Wade:
Top 5 Survivors of all time…without question…no debates…Hatch, Hantz, Boston Rob, Rupert, Coach.
Gordon: Interesting.
Coach: Poetry gave me such a sweetness resonating from my senses last week I thought I would do some more, albeit not in Haiku form.
Gordon: Excellent.
Coach: Next week we will compare and give Arthurian Legend nicknames to the remaining members.
Gordon: Then I have some reading to do…


Ode to Marty:
Too smart,
But now we must part,
The game was better for you at the start.


Current Score: 107


Current Score: 111

#1: Ladies man, funny pan, no plan is the best plan. #1: While others are arguing over stolen fruit and fish dances, Sash was busy securing Marty’s jury vote. Well done, Sash.
brenda . naonka
#2: Backs might start to turn, as the money in the mind starts to burn, played well so far but lots to learn. #2: I’m done predicting NaOnka’s demise. It’s obvious this woman is bulletproof and everyone wants to go to the final three with her. Should we call this strategy “Hantzing” from now on?
naonka . brenda
#3: Keep giving sound bites, to the producers delights, you never get a vote because everyone of you is in fright. #3: What’s going on here? Are people around Libertad worried about upsetting Brenda? Careful, that kind of stuff can tear alliances apart when there are still swing votes lying around.
dan . kellys
#4: I’ve given up voting against you, your injuries were turning me blue, now I see just how tough you are to stick it through. #4: Kelly Kelly Kelly…I don’t even know what to say about you anymore. Are you going to coast into the finals Natalie White-style, then walk out with the million when nobody wants to vote for Brenda and NaOnka?
kellys . fabio
#5: Week by week you improve your game, silent at first now you are more a name, hope you make it all the way fly low and sane. #5: Fabio, you’re the king. You vote anyway you want, you do whatever you want, you say whatever you want, and everyone still loves you. Now, learn a fake British accent in time for the finale so you can pretend it was all an act.
holly . holly
#6: You wanted to quit once but now you are tough, don’t bail however once it gets rough, keep making friends all around and you have the right stuff. #6: Look at Holly go. She should’ve been outta here on week three. She’s playing the kind of game now that can coast into the finals.
jane . benry
#7: With eyes like Gollum and catching a lot of fish, Marty is out you got your wish, but hopefully in the future you won’t turn out to be the main dish. #7: Oh, Benry. If your plan is to play stupid, you’re in big trouble. Fabio does that way better than you do.
benry . chase
#8: Strength will make you a target, for weak players up the market, and don’t let others get a start up. #8: Chase’s defining moment may very well be how he bet in last week’s reward challenge. A vote for the guys says, “I want to eat.” A vote for the girls says, “I’m playing the game, and I’m siding with them.” The last thing anyone wants is a fit guy who’s playing the game.
sash . dan
#9: Sasha but I’m second from the bottom. Sasha pasha posh. About ready to enter the mosh pit of pride induced slosh. #9: Teflon Dan? Not anymore. By siding with Marty you’ve put a target on your head. And as the InDanimate Object, you’ll probably be very easy to hit.
chase . jane
#10: Insecurities are starting to show, hope this doesn’t mean you will start to blow, but show weakness now and you will be the next to go. #10: You got your way. Marty is long gone. But now what? All of those things Marty said about you being a threat are still out there. Sorry, Jane. Save the last fish dance for me.

Quick Note: Follow Gordon on Twitter for breaking “Survivor” news and updates.


What Do You Think: Who’s going to win this round; Team Dragon Slayer or Team Truth Seeker? Will people take NaOnka to the end because she can’t win? Will Fabio spend the million on magic beans?
