‘Survivor’ Power Rankings Round 11 – Boys on the Side? Edition


"Survivor: Second Chance" (CBS)

Quick Note: We’re going to be bringing you all kinds of “Survivor” fun this season including episode recaps, exit interviews, and Power Rankings with Jenn Brown and Max Dawson. Be sure to follow me on Twitter (@gordonholmes) for up-to-the-minute news and info.

Watch Full Episodes of “Survivor: Second Chance”

The Rules: Each week our three 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 three players will earn. For example, if Kelley is voted out this week, Max and Gordon will each receive one point and Jenn will receive two points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Second Chance” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.

Last Week: Jenn, Max, and Gordon all had Joey Amazing in spot eight. The current score is Team Jenn 124, Team Max 121, and Team Gordon 115.

Important Note: These rankings are not based on who is most likely to win the entire season. Players tend to rank the players based on their safety in the next episode.

 1. Jeremy: At this point they should just give Jeremy the money. Also “it’s a boy” made the entire country tear up. I also love Val as much as I love Jeremy. And I thought he would be challenge threat #1 after Joe left but he’s not! It’s Keith! And I love that.
  1. Kelley: As soon as I saw the first flashes of his traffic-cone orange Ephrata shirt through the Cambodian brush I was certain that Kelley was toast. The curmudgeonly Dale Wentworth has a penchant for making waves around camp. My initial thought was that we were about to see Dale rip into Kimmi for undercooking the rice or start an argument with Spencer about why Trump is more qualified for the presidency than Jeb Bush. And yet somehow Dale’s visit went off without a hitch. If Kelley can survive a family visit from @farmguy69 she can survive anything.  1. Kelley: She’s got an idol and she’s making the right moves at the right time. Kelley is killing it. My only concern for her is; does the jury appreciate what she’s done? They should, but has she been playing it too close to the vest? Too sneaky, sneaky?
  2. Kelley: She’s still one of my favorites. Finally got rid of Joe, is in a great position with her alliance, and will probably make it to the end because SHE ALSO HAS AN IDOL STILL.
  2. Spencer: Spencer has created for himself a number of potential paths to the final three. He’s at the point where he needs to be giving serious thought to who will be sitting next to him. I worry, though, that with all of those scenarios to run the old gamebot Spencer could re-emerge, and that he could lose his grasp on the social game he has worked so hard to build. Remember how great Mitt Romney was during the primary, and how awful he was during the election? Spencer, don’t be a Romney.
 2. Jeremy: Ya got me last week, Jeremy. Waterworks in the Holmes household the second Val said, “It’s a boy.” Now, back to the game. You’re actually in amazing shape for someone who’s had some rough votes. You’ve got an idol in your pocket and nobody is viewing you as a challenge threat. But, Ciera pointed out that nobody can beat you at the end. They’re coming for you, you have to figure out when.
  3. Keith: I love that Big D made an appearance this episode. She is just as great as Keith is, trust me I’ve met her. We all went to the Dallas aquarium once, and it was a blast. Anyway. There’s no way anyone is getting rid of Keith soon, so towards the top he will remain. Hell I wouldn’t be surprised if he went to the final 4 or 3.
  3. Abi-Maria: Abi likes dark-haired gamer bros with severe ADHD. You like curly-haired mold clowns. That doesn’t give you the right to post something horrible on her Instagram. Apparently after last week’s episode some viewers felt compelled to take time out from mistaking “Onion” articles for real news stories to disparage and/or threaten Abi and Kelley on social media. The “Survivor” community stands united against this disgusting behavior. Don’t do it. And certainly don’t tolerate it.  3. Tasha: Nobody needs an all-female alliance more than Tasha. In fact, I’d wager that the only people she could beat at the end are Abi and Kimmi. And that’s a big “if.” A lot of the jurors are fond of Kimmi.
  4. Spencer: The “Survivor” gods love Spencer. So much airtime, so much positive edit about him becoming a being with feelings, so much love for his girlfriend.
  4. Tasha: Tasha handled the women’s alliance situation with all of the grace that Dan Foley exhibited when he explained how to talk to the ladies. Moments like that one suggest that Tasha doesn’t have the finesse to win this game.
 4. Abi-Maria: Abi’s going to the final three, isn’t she? Is there a downside for anyone to make that move? The only person on that island who would possibly vote for her is her mother. And I’m assuming she was sent home before final Tribal.
 5. Tasha: Tasha has a final-3 deal going, however she totally turned on her female alliance! She had the numbers with that alliance. Why would she do that? What happens when Jeremy tells the girls that Tasha ratted them out? WHAT HAPPENS?
   5. Jeremy: Option 1: Jeremy wins immunity and he, Tasha, Spencer, and Kimmi vote out Keith. Option 2: Jeremy loses immunity and idols out Keith. Either way, I think Keith is getting the big d this week.  5. Kimmi: An all-female alliance worked in Micronesia and it could absolutely work here. That is, if Tasha hadn’t run off and told her boys.
 6. Abi-Maria: Abi made it this far into the game, just like last time, and I am actually shocked after the start of this game that she has. But it seems like she’s had a bit of a turn around. However her alliance member just ratted her and the other girls out, so I’m thinking it’s Abi or Kimmi next, because…damnit, Tasha. Why don’t all girl alliances ever pan out (minus the black widows and also just me and Hali who did nothing really)?! I would love to see an all female final 8 or something. That’s the “Survivor” season I want to see. And that way there are no “male and female” immunity necklaces.
   6. Kimmi: In like Caryn, out like Monica? Suddenly Kimmi wants to do all the girls? I don’t buy it. Kimmi’s reaction to seeing her dad told me everything I need to know about her next move. She’s sticking with her game dad, Jeremy.  6. Keith: You went toe-to-toe with the Golden Boy week after week and now he’s gone! And the reward for your amazing feat is…you’re the biggest challenge threat in the game. Whoops. The only thing working for you is that nobody is worried about you pulling any clever strategies out of your hat.
 7. Kimmi: Ditto to above. I wrote a bunch there and then realized I was writing it for both of them, so whatever. Also can I have Abi and Kimmi both tied for last? Gordon?
  7. Keith: When Keith talked about killing the Golden Boy I don’t think he had last week’s challenge in mind. I also don’t think he had given much thought to what Joe’s elimination would mean for his game. Sure, Keith now stands a much greater chance of winning immunity challenges. But as soon as doesn’t win he’s going to realize that the threat of Joe making an immunity run was all that was keeping him in the game.  7. Spencer: I really liked “Survivor’s” tie-in with “The Wiz Live!” last week where they gave Spencer a heart. His moment with his girlfriend was adorable. But, his courage in challenges and his strategic brains make him a threat. It could cause them to send him home.
