‘Survivor: Kaôh Rōng’ Power Rankings: Dig Trouble in Little Cambodia Edition


'Survivor: Kaôh Rōng' (CBS)

QUICK NOTE: XFINITYTV.com is the place to be for all of your bug-eatin’, back-stabbin’, “Survivor” coverage. During the season we’ll have insightful weekly Power Rankings, exit interviews, and full episode recaps. Follow me on Twitter (@gordonholmes) for up-to-the-minute updates.

Watch Full Episodes of “Survivor: Kaôh Rōng”

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 players will earn.  For example, if Anna is voted out this episode, Shirin will receive nine points and Gordon will receive three points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Kaôh Rōng” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.

Last Week: Shirin had Elisabeth in spot fourteen. Gordon had her in spot thirteen. The current score is now Team Shirin 20, Team Gordon 15.

Quick Note: Rankings are not based on who the player thinks is most likely to win. The smart strategy is to rank the contestants based on who is the most likely to be voted out in the next episode.

Another Quick Note: It seems like there is a medical evacuation this week. Shirin and Gordon both stayed away from promos that could hint at the identity of the unfortunate player.

Shirin’s Score = 20

 1. – Jason: Between his Mecha build, Scot’s height, and Alecia’s idol, when push comes to shove, Jason is the biggest man to ever play the game.
 1. – Tai: I’m a hardcore carnivore, and even my heart went out to poor Tai when he was conflicted over killing the chicken. So, I guess it’s official; I am Team Tai. I’m part of the Trang Gang. Hopefully that idol helps him stick around for a long time.
 2. – Tai: A crying Tai holds his idol up in the air as the sun drops his competitors, one by one, to their knees. All hail the king. Maaaaaaaaa zeemenyaaaaaaa zabagichi yama… It’s the Circle of Life. #NoWaste
 2. – Jason: “I am possibly one of the best bounty hunters in South-East Michigan.” Not THE best? So, Jason is basically Dengar. But, he’s Dengar with an idol.
 3. – Scot: Scot took a shot at the idol, but Jason grabbed the rebound. Unfortunately for Scot, I don’t think Jason will try for an assist.
 3. – Anna: She’s clearly running the show at the Beauty tribe. Add that to the fact that she won’t be an obvious target after a swap and you have someone who could be sticking around for a long time. And, as a male with functioning eyes I’m OK with that.
 4. – Caleb: Everyone on this tribe wants to cuddle with Bamboo Mode Cowboy.
 4. – Scot: I was way off last week. Scot and Jason are still besties, Scot just voted for Alecia because he gave his word to Jennifer. Scot’s going to be fine again this week, but he’s going to be in big (tall?) trouble if there’s a tribe swap next week.
 5. – Michele: I can’t hear you over all the Tai buzz. #MuffliatoCharm
 5. – Aubry: Things are far from stable over with the Brainy Bunch. But, there’s no reason to target Aubry this week.
 6. – Julia:

So it’s gonna be forever,
Or it’s gonna go down in flames,
…But I got a blank space baby,
And I’ll write your name.
 6. – Julia: I super-underestimated Julia at the beginning of this season, she can go. She did a fantastic job with the ball maze. (Also, did anyone else hear Probst say, “The key is to avoid the holes in the maze”? That’s like saying “The key to winning football is to have more points than your opponent.”)
 7. – Cydney: To the left, TO THE LEFT CYDNEY, everything you could’ve owned in a box to the left.
 7. – Michele: Hey.
 8. – Aubry: I would sob if Aub was robbed by squabbling doc and the quant job. But Aub is mob and hobnobs with Deathstick Deb (obv) and 6-pack Joe whose DOB predates Bob…Crowley. #BustaRhymes  8. – Caleb: The Beast Mode Gardeners are in good with Anna’s Angels and now they’re packing an idol.
 9. – Anna: She’s busting ahead in these primary stages, but she’ll pay the price in the general election.
 9. – Joe: You can’t get me to do exercises when I’m well fed in the comfort of a gym. This guy is doing leg-lifts in the crazy Cambodian heat. Cranky-ness aside, he’s harmless and it seems like he’s just a floating vote.
 10. – Joe: Bust out a 6-pack and enjoy the show, Joe.  10. – Cydney: I should feel better about Cydney. She played last week’s idol situation as best she could, but Scot and Jason might worry that she has Alecia in her pocket.
  11. – Debbie: The tiger suit is still there…beneath the goat suit. But zip it back up so the others can’t see!
 11. – Neal: Peter and Elisabeth targeted Neal because they thought he was a strategist who couldn’t be trusted. That does not bode well for the future of his game. It’s gonna be a rocky road. (I hate myself for that.)
 12. – Neal: The reason Neal keeps smirking is because there *is* a snake in those pants, Peter. But which way will Debbie Bobbitt’s knife fall in the age old “Survivor” battle of peter vs snake in the pants? #DeathstickDeb
 12. – Debbie: This tiger has claws! She put a plan into action last week and it played out perfectly. But, can she keep the momentum going?
 13. – Nick: I think this guy studied “Worlds Apart” for social graces, which has left him worlds apart from the beauty tribe vibe.
 13. – Peter: Dude, “Survivor” is a social game. You can’t hang out in the water talking strategy all day. Didn’t you see “Second Chance”? Oh wait, you totally didn’t.
  14. – Peter: Neal’s pants creamed you.
 14. – Nick: How did Nick end up on the outside? He seems to get along with everybody well enough. Maybe he just can’t compare to the combined charisma of the Beast Mode Garderers.
15. – Alecia: Alecia’s embryo must have had a storied past because a bounty hunter raided her box and snatched it. #RedWedding  15. – Alecia: I don’t blame Alecia for trying to cement an alliance with Cydney with the immunity clue, but…wow… The mental giant needs a tribe swap more than anyone right now.
