‘Survivor: Redemption Island’ Power Rankings: Round 10

The Rules: Each week, “Survivor: Nicaragua” finalist Matthew “Sash” Lenahan and XFINITY TV’s “Survivor” loudmouth 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 Andrea is voted out this week, Sash will receive 6 points and Gordon will receive 2 points. Also, each player will pick who they think will win at “Redemption Island.” If they choose correctly they will receive a bonus point for each player. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Redemption Island” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.

Last Week: Sash had Matt as his Redemption Island pick, Gordon had David. So, Sash earns a point. Sash had Julie in spot seven, Gordon had her in spot five. The current score is now Team Sash 112 to Team Gordon 99.

If you do better than Gordon does, (which is highly likely) he’ll give you credit in his weekly recap.

#1 Boston Rob – Hook, line, and sinker…could this game be any easier for Boston Rob?  If he can get rid of Grant and Andrea while avoiding comeback kid Matt, he will have his redemption. . #1 Natalie – Natalie’s probably going to get a lot of grief for riding Rob’s coattails, but what else should she do? Make a bold move that could cost her a guaranteed Final Three in order to maybe sway some jury votes? Jury votes that are already annoyed with Boston Rob?
natalie . andrea
#2 Natalie – Riding coattails is what Natalie does best.  Could this be the easiest ascent to Final Tribal Council in “Survivor” history? . #2 Andrea – The previews make it seem like you’re in trouble. This leads me to believe you are safe. Also, Rob doesn’t want to target Ometepe until he has to. Otherwise, he’ll have a tough time with the jury.
phillip . ashley
#3 Phillip – Phillip is playing this game almost as hard as Boston Rob is.  We’ve seen him go from crazy to ridiculous…a perfect strategy for making a run for Final Tribal Council. . #3 Purple Ashley Something about Nicaragua must make it easy for blonds to blend into the background.
ashley . grant
#4 Ashley – If “Survivor” was a scored game, Ashley would have zero points.  How can someone coast so easily to the end?  Two words; Boston Rob. . #4 Grant – You’re still safe, Grant. But if you don’t make a move soon you’re going to join Lex and Big Tom on Boston Rob’s list of buddies he’s stabbed in the back.
grant . bostonrob
#5 Grant – Grant’s best shot at the end is blindsiding Boston Rob.  Hopefully he isn’t completely brainwashed yet as light at the end of the tunnel begins to appear. . #5 Boston Rob – If the Ometepians ever decide to make a move Rob is done for. But right now that seems like a very big “if.”
andrea . phillip
#6 Andrea – What’s going to happen when all the remaining Zapatera have been voted out?  Andrea needs to quickly decide on her end game; otherwise, she won’t have any hope of making a run for the million dollars. . #6 Phillip – I agree that Phillip is the perfect choice for Boston Rob to take to the end, but I think he might earn some goodwill from the jury if he sends him home. Will Rob go this route? I doubt it.
ralph . steve
#7 Ralph – Ralph definitely has a way with words (when we can understand them), but hasn’t been able to charm the Ometepe women in the slightest.  Unless he can go on an immunity run, he’s a goner. . #7 Steve – Why weren’t you voted out last week, Steve? Is it because you irritate Phillip? Could Boston Rob want everyone to hate Phillip as much as possible and that’s why you’re sticking around?
steve . ralph
#8 Steve – Steve’s wish to be sent home to Ponderosa was not granted by Boston Rob and now he must endure a slow, painful death with Phillip outlasting him…ouch! . #8 Ralph – Steve and Ralph are pretty interchangeable at this point. I’m going to go with Ralph here because he’s stronger physically.


. matt


Redemption Island Winners – Julie has no shot at Redemption despite Matt’s sanity cracking at the seams. . Redemption Island WinnersYeah, Matt seems to be having a rough time with his return trip to Redemptionville. But, has Julie done a thing this season to make me think she can top either of these guys in a challenge? Nope.
