‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur’ Power Rankings – Flatulent Fireman 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 nine points and Gordon will receive six 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 had Josh in spot eight, Gordon had him in spot ten. The current score is Team Spencer: 69, Team Gordon: 79.

 1. Natalie – The last time we saw a Natalie this quiet, she took down third place (S22). The time before that, she won the game (S19). Our twinnie has been a small presence, but every time she speaks, she shows strategic chops worthy of carrying on the tradition of her namesake.
  1. Jaclyn – She’s in the dominant alliance, her bae has an immunity idol, and she isn’t a challenge threat. She isn’t going anywhere.
 2. Baylor – Baylor has aspirations greater than simply taking the most crap from Alec; she’s going for records. The irony is that despite collecting votes quicker than Probst collects cargos, Baylor is in little danger. She’s under Missy’s protection, in the majority and out of the fray.
  2. Natalie – Natalie has taken a backseat since the merge, but that’s not always a bad thing. Jeremy’s taking all the shots because he’s the leader, meanwhile she’s working hard and making friends.
 3. Jeremy – All of the sudden, Jeremy has shifted from Grinch of San Juan Del Sur to dragon slayer of San Juan Del Sur. When he isn’t questioning why others are happy, he’s aggressively taking those happy people out. Jeremy is in control after slaying Josh.
  3. Baylor – “Naïve,” “Spoiled,” “Brat,” “Ugh,” and “Lazy” are five words that have been used in five different exit interviews to describe poor Baylor. And, that’s just the people who’ve left the game. Alec wants her to smell his farts, Keith wants to actively whoop her, and her own mother punched her in the face.

 4. Missy – Keith can bemoan her parenting all he wants, but Missy successfully lead her daughter toward a comfortable majority. As long as she doesn’t consume all the rice in the next three days, she should stick around.
  4. Missy – Everyone’s got to be wondering; how do I get to the end with Baylor and Missy? Seems like a guaranteed million-dollar check.
 5. Jon – They finally did it. Jon and Jaclyn planted their flag alongside team Jeremy; they picked a side. Time will tell if this couple blundered, but with the numbers still tight, I think they bought some short-term safety.
 5. Jon – I have a theory that every “Survivor” is a product of the last season the cast saw before they went on location. The last thing this group saw was Tony being rewarded for stabbing people in the back in “Survivor: Cagayan.” Jon, you might think you’re safe, but you’d better keep that idol close at all times. Beware the odd-numbered votes…
  6. Jaclyn – I like the Jaclyn that’s emerging – a decision-maker with the backbone to call people out for hovering around Jon rather than her. Speaking of howler monkey whisperer: He’s got an idol, and seems nice enough to use it should Jaclyn need it.
 6. Keith – I’ve given Keith’s use of the idol some thought, and I don’t think he completely dropped the ball. If he’s low on Jeremy’s list of people to boot, he could ride things out until that alliance is about to break up and sneak his way into a final three with a desperate duo. Is he thinking that far ahead? Probably not.
  7. Alec – Who says chivalry is dead? This charmer unfortunately found himself in the minority after the last vote, and is skating on thin ice. What used to be merely rubbing someone the wrong way might now be a “Survivor” death wish.
 7. Wes – I want Wes to make it to the end, just so his jury speech can start, “I’m a good kid, I haven’t been in jail yet.” Can he get there from here? That all depends on if his father is in a sharing mood.
  8. Wes – Despite the extent of his taco overload, Wes is on the verge of an even more extensive binge-eating session if he becomes the second juror. It’s nice that his dad has an idol, but with the way things are going Keith could just as easily give Wes a “whooping” as he could bail him out.
 8. Alec – Wow, did you guys blow it. As the lone single person in your alliance, you were a shoo-in to be in some couple’s final three. Now look at you; you’re going to be remembered as the guy who wanted to fart on Baylor.
  9. Keith – If we’re to expect a blindside this week, Keith might be our man. He’s done nothing with his idol so far (and it could have plausibly changed the game), and I fear that trend may continue one vote too long.
  9. Jeremy – Jon and Jaclyn have defected! Team Jeremy reigns supreme! Let the Pagoning begin! Well…not so fast. There’s still the outside chance that Keith could wake up and realize that he could put his alliance back in power with his idol. An outside chance. A waaaaaay outside chance.  But, it could happen.
  10. Reed – A Joshless Reed is ready to stir things up. He’ll “light this camp on fire” and search through bags before going down. I’m rooting for him to pull some rabbits out of hats, but so far in barren Nicaragua, I haven’t seen many rabbits.
  10. Reed Reed’s Spidey Sense must be freaking out right about now. Why do I have him so low? Because he’s so well liked. If I’m Team Jeremy, I’d be worried that he’s the only one out of the guys who could weasel his way into any alliance cracks that could form in the coming weeks.
