‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur’ Power Rankings – Stinky Smooch Edition

'Survivor: San Juan del Sur' (CBS)

NOTE: XFINITY TV is the place to go for “Survivor: San Juan del Sur” coverage with “all the fixin’s.” We’ll have Power Rankings with “Cagayan” fave Spencer Bledsoe, every Wednesday evening we’ll bring you a recap of the most recent episode, and every Thursday you’ll be able to watch the previous night’s episode and read an interview with the eliminated contestant. Be sure to follow me on Twitter (@gordonholmes) for immediate updates.

The Rules: Each week our two combatants 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 Keith is voted out this week, Spencer will receive three points and Gordon will receive five points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: San Juan del Sur” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.

Last Week: Spencer and Gordon both had Julie in spot twelve. The current score is Team Spencer 61, Team Gordon 68.

 1. Baylor – Baylor has come a long way since being lost at the grocery store, scared and unable to find her mom. She’s now following her Missy’s lead, and securing a spot atop the Power Rankings.
  1. Jaclyn – So much has changed since Julie quit because she missed John Rocker, or she was caught hoarding food, or she didn’t like rain, or whatever. The world’s been introduced to “Too Many Cooks,” LeBron James has lost and found his mojo, and someone stole my idea for Dorito-flavored Mountain Dew. The one thing that hasn’t changed is how much the rest of the game will hinge on the next move of Nicaragua’s Hottest Couple.
 2. Jeremy – Things weren’t looking too pretty for Jeremy last week before purple Julie felt the last rain drop in the coffin. Probst said someone could have gotten a million dollar break last week, and with Jeremy’s hold over Alec, amongst others, the tide might turn once again this week.
  2. Jon – Julie’s quit was a nice little undercard match to set up this week’s main event. It’s a six-on five elimination match with the drama centering around which side JaclJon (Jonlyn?) will take. If I were them, I’d side with Jeremy and Co. because Jeremy is the only physical threat. But I understand why they’d be worried about being the last intimidating couple left standing.
 3. Keith – He may not remember birthdays. He may demand help picking up wood, per the previews. But as long as Keith doesn’t go home with an idol, we’re in for another week of laughs.
  3. Baylor – Nobody is truly  safe this week outside of the golden couple. Baylor’s only this high because somebody has to be. We might end up with a situation where idol fear causes one team to go after a less-likely target.

 4. Missy – Missy is a risky ranking. I’m jumping out on a limb and predicting that things will work out well for the Missy/Baylor/Jeremy/Natalie coalition, but truth be told, they’re all in the hands of Jon and Jaclyn. And that’s a scary place to be.
  4. Natalie – See Baylor.
 5. Natalie – Same rationale as Missy, only Natalie seems slightly more tightly tethered to Jeremy, and slightly less maneuverable.
 5. Keith – I’m starting to think that nobody knows Keith has an idol because this is the second week in a row where his alliance could’ve used an idol and nobody mentioned it. Is that good?  Yes and no. It’s good because he has a safety net if he feels threatened. It’s bad because he could put Josh’s alliance in the driver’s seat with one move and he doesn’t seem willing to do it.
  6. Jaclyn – We actually heard from Jaclyn last episode – twice! With she and Jon positioned as a power couple this week, expect lightning to strike again.
 6. Wes – Aww…poor Wes His dad forgot his birthday, then he bested him in an immunity challenge. It’s cool. You don’t want to look like too much of a threat.
  7. Jon – As swing votes, Jon and Jaclyn have taken over the narration duties of the show. Suffice it to say, I don’t think Morgan Freeman is sweating this one; his job is safe.
 7. Missy – All signs pointed to Julie being majorly creeped out by Missy last week. That’s bad. There’s nothing worse in this game than not appreciating how people perceive you. So, why is Missy so low this week? Because I’m thinking she’ll be the target if Team Josh wins the affections of J-Squared and Jeremy wins immunity.
  8. Josh – Josh is the guy who is continually, inevitably, perpetually shafted. He saves his rice on Coyopa only to show up at Hunahpu and have nothing to eat. He played his cards well – becoming effective mob boss in the early going – but is now ultimately left grasping for control. It’s all up to the woman who can’t speak and the man who talks to howler monkeys.
 8. Alec – So, I wrote out all of the options, and it looks like Alec is in real danger of being the odd man out. If Jon and Jac go with Team Josh, it’s a couples’ alliance and Alec doesn’t fit in. And, if J&J go with Team Jeremy, they don’t need Alec and he has no real foundation with them.
  9. Wes – He’s made the background his home, staying quiet thus far, but could catch a stray bullet if Jeremy wins the Jeremy-vs-Josh clash. Wes might just need to ask dad for that idol.
  9. Reed – Your worst-case scenario is Team Jeremy winning the love of JaclJon and Josh winning immunity. (Hey, remember when we thought Reed was the player and Josh was the tag-along?)
  10. Reed – With each passing day, an athlete like Reed becomes a higher nail to be pounded down. With each vote, the fact that he and Josh remain together will make others uneasy. In a very different sense than the fallen John Rocker, Reed is a ticking time bomb.
  10. Josh Alright, if I were a betting man (and I totally am) I’d bet that the wonder twins will end up by Josh’s side. Here’s my reasoning; 1. Jon wasn’t that close to Jeremy on old Hunahpu, 2. The more couples there are around, the less dangerous it is to be in a couple. 3. Josh and Reed seem much more intimidating challenge-wise (and are thus bigger targets) than Jon and Jaclyn.
  11. Alec – Next episode looks like hard times for ‘basically a badass’ junior. His rudeness toward Julie last week at least reflected others’ outrage after the #TrailMixScandal, but the rudeness he’s teased to bring this time looks… ugly. Alec may find plenty of time at Ponderosa to be a meat collector as the first juror.
  11. Jeremy – The shame of the Jeremy/Josh showdown is it’s probably going to cost us one of this season’s two solid players. I’m hoping Jeremy can figure it out and break the Gordon-picked-me-to-win curse, but I’m thinking Josh has got him beat.
