The Rules: Each week, “Survivor: Nicaragua” finalist Matthew “Sash” Lenahan and XFINITY TV’s “Survivor” loudmouth Gordon Holmes 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 two players will earn. For example, if David is voted out this week, Sash will receive 1 point and Gordon will receive 6 points. Also, each player will pick who they think will win at Redemption Island. If they choose correctly they will receive a bonus point. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Redemption Island” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.
Last Week: Sash had Kristina in spot 15 while I had her in spot 14. Both of us thought Russell would prevail at Redemption Island, so no bonus points for either competitor. Sash still leads by a score of 38 to 34
|#3 Natalie – Staying out of trouble and staying close to Rob will carry Natalie far.||.||#3 Grant - He’s like the Chewbacca to Rob’s Han Solo. He’s also super safe at Ometepe until they hit the merge, then it’s back to Kashyyyk. (Yes, I’m a nerd.)|
|#6 Ralph – Ralph still has the idol and we still need subtitles when he speaks. Showing everyone the idol was a huge mistake and he will pay for it.||.||#6 David – Why David’s big drop this week? Because Russell spilled the beans about a knock down, drag out fight he had with Stephanie. I thought he was a cool-headed tactician. Maybe I was too quick to crown him with Stephen Fishbach’s wizard hat.|
|Redemption Island Winner – Matt will continue his winning streak against Kristina in this duel. Look for him to stay awhile.||.||Redemption Island Winner – No reason to vote against a guy on a hot streak.|
