Last Week: Josh and Reed had Dan in spot five while I had him in spot four. So, the current score is Team Josh: 84, Team Reed: 92, Team Gordon 92.

Let’s check in with our three competitors before we put a bow on this season…

Gordon Holmes: So, what’ve you two been up to since we saw you on the show?
Reed Kelly: Since our time in San Juan del Sur, my personal favorite player from season 29 proposed to me on stage during the Broadway Boyfriends cabaret at 54 Below.  No, it wasn’t Missy, it was the ever-cunning Coyopa kingpin, Josh Canfield!  He did a great job of keeping me so focused on prepping for the cabaret that it truly was a #blindside and I could not be more thrilled about it.
Josh Canfield: I’m still on cloud nine and we have now begun to plan the wedding.

Holmes: That’s awesome to hear. How are things professionally?
Canfield: I’ve also gotten back into the swing of theatre.  I recently opened on Broadway in the show “Doctor Zhivago” as Liberius, a morphine-addicted soldier for the wrong side.
Kelly: Professionally, I’m back to doing what I do best: lifting famous girls and kicking my leg for money.  As we speak, I’m getting ready to start rehearsals to bring “Bombshell” (the Marilyn Monroe musical from NBC’s “SMASH” staring Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty) to Broadway.  I’m super excited about getting to revisit this wonderful chapter of my life after having such a blast on “Survivor.”

Holmes: When it’s all said and done, where do you think “Worlds Apart” will rank against the other seasons?
Canfield: Definitely not as good as “San Juan del Sur” ;-), but I thoroughly enjoyed “Worlds Apart” and would probably place it between 10-15 as far as my favorite seasons go.  A lot depends on this finale and who ends up in that final three.
Kelly: I really enjoyed Season 30 and it would definitely make the merge if it were competing against the other “Survivor” seasons: it’s totally dateable.

Holmes: I’ve made my “Second Chance” picks, who are you guys pulling for?
Kelly: I’m thoroughly looking forward to “Second Chances,” especially if Keith gets on and figures out how to actually stick to the plan without talking about it. Other than that; Stephen, Vytas, Spencer, Joe, Mike, and Carolyn are at the top of my list.
Canfield: I’m really looking forward to seeing Vytas, Spencer, Troyzan, Stephen, Carolyn, and Tasha play again! Here’s hoping they all get that Second Chance!

Holmes: Well, before we head into the final round, I really want to thank you two for being such awesome competition.
Canfield: I’m so grateful that I was asked to be a part of the Power Rankings!  It’s fun to voice my thoughts even though I’m often very wrong!
Kelly: I love this game and I love this show.  This whole experience really has been like a fairy tale, and we all know how much I love those too.  Thanks, Gordon and CBS for asking us to do the rankings this season!  #BigSmiles

 1. Mike: I’m hoping Mike is our winner, it would be a great end to a good season.  We have seen him make mistakes, we have watched him go from the top to the bottom of alliances, and we’ve seen his humor and his dark side.  A very well rounded and satisfying winner. #pleasebethesolesurvivor   1. Mike: Who doesn’t love an against-all-odds, fight-to-the-end, underdog story?  I know I do.  I have my fingers crossed that this is what we are building up to.  As far as Mike’s tribe mates go: they’d be foolish to keep him around until FTC if they can help it, because I believe the jury would reward his underdog story too.
 1. Mike: I’m not usually one to back somebody who needs to win out to get to the end, but Mike is a force of nature.  He’s also been eating regularly (if you consider one big meal every three days “regularly.”) The title for his autobiography will be “From Scorpion Dinner to ‘Survivor’ Winner.”
  2. Sierra: She is the perfect second-place survivor, just look at last season and Jaclyn.  They are similarly edited and are even playing a similar game in ways.  The only reason she will get votes is if you have angry jury members who are voting against someone else. #secondplaceisbetterthaneleventh
 2. Rodney: I can’t figure out if the things we’ve seen from him this season add up to a million dollar win; for me they don’t, but he and Will seem tight and maybe that’ll be enough to get him into the FTC.  I sure enjoyed watching Rodney’s madness.  It reminds me of the time I saw [Sports Icon] miss that [Sports Action] and lose the [Year] [Championship Event]. Yeah, Rodney was just like that.
 2. Sierra: Everyone thinks taking Rodney and Will to the end is a solid strategy, but I disagree. Like Rodney or not, he ran the show for a while. Sierra seems like a safer bet to bring along. Her autobiography will be titled, “Barrel Racin’ and Second Placin’.”
  3. Will: Will is the ideal third-place goat, also look at last season and Missy.  He will make it to the FTC because everyone knows he won’t get any votes, and he doesn’t have a loved one with him to toss a sympathy vote. #whoareyouagain
  3. Will: Good for him for getting this deep into the game.  It takes all kinds to play Survivor.  He apparently had just the right combination of “non-threat” in both the social and physical elements; and the right personality for this group to get to where he is.  From where the viewer is sitting, he seems like the quintessential goat, but who cares?  Goats make great money!
 3. Will: Does Will get a single vote? Even one? Does anyone bring up that he never delivered on his day-one promise to have sandwiches for the No Collars? His book is titled, “Where There’s a Will, There’s Literally No Chance This Dude Is Going to Win ‘Survivor.'”
  4. Rodney: If the final 3 is Rodney, Sierra, and Will, who do you vote for? I guess you force yourself to write Rodney even though you would be screaming and crying as you did so.  Rodney’s “Survivor” legacy is complaining, misogyny, and all around negativity. #nobirthdaypartyforyou
  4. Sierra: Feels like she played a solid game of Make It To The End and sometimes that is the best a person can do within the confines of their season.  I’d be totally cool with getting to see her plead her case at the FTC.
 4. Rodney: Rodney is too well-liked to take to the end. There’s a young voting block there. Better to bring someone who never made a move like Sierra. Can’t wait to pick up his book “First Impressions” when I catch his Vegas show.
 5. Carolyn: The only other person who deserves to win besides Mike, that’s why I think it will be one of these two with the first snuffed torch of the episode.  She has maneuvered this game so well, and has made it to the home stretch.  If she finds herself gone, I will look forward to seeing her on S31.  #SecondChances
 5. Carolyn: Has played a fantastic game throughout and looked good doing it, I just worry for her that people have now clearly figured that out.  If I were anyone else still in the game, I certainly wouldn’t want to go up against her in the FTC.  Right now she would be a super-satisfying winner for me.  All in all, this just feels one episode too soon to be making the last order and I’ve done them like 10 different ways; going with this one finally and can’t wait to see what happens!
 5. Carolyn: Mama C. and Mikey T. (“T” for Texas? I don’t know. Stay with me) are the game’s remaining big guns, and only one of them can win that first immunity challenge.  Her title? “A Second Chance? Yeah, Baby!”
