'Survivor: Kaôh Rōng' (CBS)

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 Scot is voted out this episode, Shirin will receive seven points and Gordon will receive thirteen 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 Caleb in spot four, Gordon had him in spot eight. They both had Alecia in spot fifteen. The current score is now Team Shirin 39, Team Gordon 38.

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.


Shirin’s Score = 39

 1. – Tai: Shantay you stay. #GoodLuckAndDontFItUp
 1. – Tai: Man…I hate ranking tribe swaps. So, those who are packing idols get a trip to the top of the heap. (Quick Aside: Deleting Caleb’s image from the Power Rankings template gave me the sads. Bring back Beast Mode!)
 2. – Cydney: During challenges she fights while others roll over. Outside of challenges she rolls over while others fight.
 2. – Jason: Jason the Bounty-Hunting Enigma…had a very shiny back. Is he the man who refuses to call Alecia by her real name or the guy who nurses a fallen teammate back to health? He’s got a hard exterior and a soft, gooey inside. Like an old twinkie.
 3. – Julia: Wake me up before you go go.
 3. – Cydney: The only bright spot in a horrible episode last week was Cydney recuperating while the other Brawns battled each other. Hilarious. I have a feeling she’s going to be fine no matter which tribe she ends up on.
 4. – Michele: She’s the snitch on the Quiddich pitch: shiny, quick, and tough to spot. Most players are going after the quaffle.
 4. – Julia: Julia’s like a secret little challenge champ. She’s an adorable Ozzy.
 5. – Jason: This is a song for the ladies

But fellas listen closely… #TheD
 5. – Michele: Maybe in this season’s director’s cut, we’ll learn that Michele snuck down to the reward challenge early and buried all the bags super deep. Evil…
 6. – Neal: What flavor is camouflage? And will those pants continue to hide him from his swapmates as much as they hide him from the cameras?
 6. – Aubry: It seems like Aubry has found her bearings after that first-episode freak-out. She’ll have plenty of room to figure things out after the swap.
 7. – Scot: A small man stands on the shoulders of giants to elevate himself so he can look down on people. But unlike the NBA, “Survivor” doesn’t give you the title for watching others win. “Hey, I got two bags!” Yeah, and they both start with “D”.
 7. – Joe: Oh Joe… You’re probably fine. Just keep the crankiness at a minimum with your new tribemates.
 8. – Nick: Caleb’s footrest is the most useful tool he’ll be all season.  8. – Neal: I’m really nervous for all of the Brains members. Peter is going to spill his guts quickly. And if he tells his new tribemates that Neal is a player, he could have trouble rum raisin his standing in his new tribe. (That was awful. Don’t worry, I have way more.)
 9. – Anna: I’m willing to wager her swapmates won’t buy this emperor’s new clothes when she’s exposed as the head of the girls’ alliance.
 9. – Anna: Alliance leaders usually run into trouble during a swap, but I don’t know if Nick even knows that Anna doesn’t trust him.
 10. – Peter: Will anyone in his new rotation be willing to swallow his prescriptions? Side effects may include: heart palpitations, weight changes, eyerolls, and loss of weak members.  10. – Peter: Nobody needs a tribe swap more than Peter. He’s clearly on the bottom of the Brainy Bunch. The question is; will he be able to flop his knowledge and swing vote for safety, or will he be viewed as a physical threat to send packing?
  11. – Aubry: Seriously concerned the Deatheaters will come for Aubry + Debbie (Daubby). Let’s hope the latter can put a sock in it and they straddle the fence like a half blood princess.
 11. – Debbie: I’d wager your cheering has put you on the other tribes’ hit lists. Add that to Peter ratting you out as a power player and you might be serving cheesy biscuits at Ponderosa.
 12. – Debbie: A swap is coming and our tenacious D bags already don’t like cheerleaders. Add the unflattering ring of “C’monnn brain stems!” and Debbie may not hit it off with our favorite brawny Neanderthal.
 12. – Nick: There are three rules I live by; never get less than twelve hours sleep, never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city, and never rank strong guys high in a merge episode. #teenwolf
 13. – Joe: Joe’s shade game is on point like a California redwood. But will his swapmates ax this inert giant as a challenge liability? #AllBarkNoBite
 13. – Scot: The problem with being eight-feet tall is there’s just too much real estate to place a target.
