Important Announcement: The “Survivor” Hall of Fame is honoring the show’s most iconic Tribal Councils.

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 Baylor is voted out this week, Spencer will receive three points and Gordon will receive two 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 Wes in spot seven. So, the current score is Team Farm Guy 79, Team Corinsanity 95.

 1. Jon – There looks to be trouble in paradise in this week’s “Survivor” double-header, as Jon and Jaclyn are seen fighting. They’ve both proven solid game players, though, and I trust the couple to keep their eyes on the prize even whilst hangry.
  1. Jaclyn – Natalie totally saved the day last week. If she doesn’t speak up at Tribal, Jon doesn’t play his idol, he’s sent packing, and you’re probably next. Now, don’t let that move make you feel too warm and fuzzy toward your new favorite Twinnie. With the exception of possibly Reed, Natalie is the last person you want to be sitting next to at the final Tribal.
 2. Jaclyn – With the numbers down to eight, Jon, Jaclyn, Missy, and Baylor have it within their power to face nothing worse than a tie at Tribal Council. If a dice roll comes, Jon and Jaclyn at least have an idol going their way.
  2. Baylor – I can’t imagine a scenario where Baylor could win at this point. She could get to the end against acne on prom night and yellow snow and still not get any votes.
 3. Baylor – In “Survivor,” any press is bad press, so it’s bad news that Reed is seen calling Baylor a brat. Whether he’s targeting her or trying to rustle her feathers, I felt better about Baylor when she was flying under the radar / Missy’s wing.
  3. Missy – I think you’re in the same boat with your daughter. You just haven’t done enough for a jury to award you the big prize.

 4. Natalie – Natalie’s in an excellent spot this week. She has an idol, and the Jon/Jaclyn/Baylor/Missy coalition need her vote. While shaking things up Ciera-style might be risky and mean a nonzero chance of going home, it could be the play she makes to have a shot at winning.
  4. Natalie – “Survivor” champions Ethan Zohn, Jenna Morasca, “Boston” Rob Mariano, and Amber Mariano have all played the “Amazing Race” and lost. Are we prepared for what’ll happen if Jeff Probst has to hand over a million-dollar check to one half of the Twinnies? (Also, what convenient bookends it’d be with Nadiya being the first out.)
 5. Missy – If Natalie decides to make something happen, and we end up in a gridlock, idols will become paramount. Natalie will have one. Jaclyn or Jon will have one. Missy will almost definitely not have one.
 5. Jon – You dodged a major bullet, buddy. And I’m betting things will finally calm down so you can cut the excess players from the tribe. But, don’t think for a second that because Natalie doesn’t have a loved one that she’s the right person to take to the end. I feel like people respect her game more than yours.
  6. Alec – “Survivor” teases that this week, contestants will willingly give up reward in the middle of a challenge. Surely they’re not talking about our beloved meat collector? Alec hasn’t made waves in a while, so hopefully two hours will be long enough to see something interesting from him.
 6. Alec – Hey…weren’t you on “Survivor”?
  7. Reed – You have to feel for someone who constructed a plan that was going to work – going to shake the game – and fell apart with four small words: “Stick to the plan.” Reed has fought the good fight, but he’s nearing his last lifeline, and has little hope of establishing long-term trust anywhere.
 7. Keith – Wow…just wow. That was… I can’t believe… Of all the… You know, when they talk about the biggest mistakes in “Survivor” history, people lean toward the showier ones like people being voted out with idols or Erik giving up his idol. But Keith’s has to be up there. If he’d played it right, he’d have the numbers and an idol right now.
  8. Keith – Talk about screwing the pooch. Keith claims not to understand “mathematics and all that mess,” and paid for it last week when he let the cat out of the bag regarding “that mess.” I’m rooting for more soundbites, but fear this is the week an idol-less Keith finally takes his last spit in San Juan Del Sur.
 8. Reed – Oh, Reed. You deserve better. It’s not your fault that Keith dropped the ball…and the ball rolled into the street…and a gasoline truck ran over the ball…and the truck swerved and hit a tree…and the gasoline doused the remnants of the ball…and an errant spark ignited the ball and burned it to dust…and then a dog relieved itself on the ashes...
