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 Ryan is voted out this episode, Aubry will receive five points and Gordon will receive seven points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.

Last Week: Aubry Bracco had JP in spot two, I had him in spot five. Aubry and I both had Joe in spot eight. The current score is Team Bracco 94, Team Holmes 103.

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.​

Aubry’s Score = 94

1. Devon: Ryan needs him as a number. He’s fully in with Ben and Ashley. Diagram this season out in term of alliances and relationships, and Devon is in the center of that web. 1. Ashley: Everybody has their dream final three in their head. I’d imagine Ashley is probably a co-star in all seven of these scenarios.
2. Ashley: Ashley is in the solid four and has great working relationships with Devon and Lauren. Even better, she hasn’t been shown as too much of a physical or strategic threat. Like she said: she’s been laying low in anticipation of getting more aggressive. Now could be her time. 2. Lauren: Lauren can win this game if she gets to the end. She’s won challenges, made moves, and the jury seems to like her. Finding the right time to get rid of Ben could be the cherry on top of her jury speech.
3. Lauren: Lauren’s steady and reliable, but she’s also being viewed as a threat. It’s still a little early to emerge as such a physical and strategic powerhouse. We’ll see if her staying power in the alliance is as good as the tenacity she’s been showing in challenges. 3. Devon: Devon’s alliance knows how strong Devon is strategically. Ryan knows too. How soon until someone realizes that this well-liked dude is a serious jury threat?
4. Ben: Ben snagged an alliance inside an alliance, but that alliance sees what a big threat he is. If Ben’s going to make it to the end, he’s going to be running the entire time. With seven people left in the game, it may feel like a sprint in the day-to-day, but it’s still a marathon. 4. Ben: This season is going to come down to Ben’s idol. If he plays it well and uses it to propel himself to the end, he’s a millionaire. If he fails to play it or plays it at the wrong time or for the wrong person, he’ll be the most-liked jury member.
5. Ryan: Ryan is in a weak, deflated position. He’s also just burned an idol — Ryan might be lucky enough to be picked up as a number, but he’s also an easy vote for the new power four if they’re not ready to turn. 5. Chrissy: The door could still be open for Chrissy if Ben realizes that going to the end with Lauren or Devon could be troublesome. Based on my exit interviews, it doesn’t seem like the jury is too fond of her.
 
6. Chrissy: Chrissy doesn’t have many friends, so she could be someone people want to go against in front of the jury. That said, if Devon, Ashley, Lauren and Ben plan on sticking together, Chrissy’s an easy one to argue against if she loses immunity as the next out. 1. She’s a strategic threat. 2. She’s proven she can win challenges. Why not go against her and preserve the four to get through a vote? 6. Mike: I love me some Mike. Yeah, he’s been outmaneuvered left and right, but his levity has been much appreciated this season. However, Mike didn’t learn his lesson about being on the bottom. Instead of stringing Ryan along and giving himself an option, he shut him right down. I still think he has swing-vote potential, but I can’t picture a scenario where a jury gives him a win. 
7. Mike: Who would have EVER thought Dr. Mike would be the last remaining Healer? Dr. Mike is likable, and there’s something so irresistibly endearing about him, his time could be up on the basis of being a social threat. 7. Ryan: If I’m the Reduced Round Table, and I’m not ready to make a move on Ben just yet, I’m taking out the remaining three in the order in which I think they might beat me at Final Tribal. Ryan, that makes you the most likely target in my book.
