‘Survivor’ Power Rankings Finals – Dawn Meehan vs. Sophie Clarke

Dawn Meehan vs. Sophie Clarke (CBS)

In honor of “Survivor: One World’s” men vs. women theme, XFINITY TV’s “Survivor” guy Gordon Holmes captained a team of “Survivor: South Pacific” guys against a team of “Survivor: South Pacific” gals.

However, the Power Rankings imitated life and the women’s team ran away with the game. In fact, the men were mathematically eliminated with three weeks still left to go.

So, the executive “Survivor” Power Rankings committee decided that the Power Rankings should continue to imitate “Survivor,” and the women should be forced to compete against each other until one sole Survivor is left standing…er…ranking.

Note: The “Survivor” Hall of Fame coffee mug has filed an appeal with the “Survivor” Power Rankings committee. It has yet to be ruled upon.

The Rules: Dawn and Sophie 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 Alicia is voted out this week, Dawn will receive 3 points and Sophie will receive 5 points. The person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: One World” Power Rankings champion.

Tie Breaker: If both competitors have the eliminated Survivor in the same position, the winner will be determined by whoever has the closest answer to the tie-breaker question. The tie-breaker question is; how many times will Jeff Probst say the word “guys” in the next episode?

Dawn’s Tie-Breaker: 11

1. I don’t see any scenario where Kim isn’t sitting at the Final 3. Here we are 30+ days into “Survivor: One World” and she’s still holding onto a hidden immunity idol! Kim’s safe this week. 1. The name of the game now is kicking out the threats (Kat last week and perhaps Alicia or Sabrina this week?) You might think this would put Kim, the biggest threat, at risk. Her dominance, however, is old news. If they haven’t gotten rid of her yet, they wont get rid of her now.
2. I think Chelsea is going to give Kim a run for the money! She’s a threat in challenges, she’s well-liked by most players, and she’s tight with Kim—who just so happens to be holding onto a hidden immunity idol. (Side note: You never hear anyone say, “Let’s get rid of Chelsea.” And clearly, Alicia and Chelsea are in some kind of alliance. I mean, they both voted Kat out last week.) So, as far as Final 3, Chelsea’s got options!  I think she is the one to watch come Sunday’s finale. 2. Kim isn’t making moves against tag-along Chelsea and Chelsea hasn’t built up a big enough resume to appear a FTC threat to Alicia or Sabrina. Unless Tarzan takes the throne and can’t stand the thought of looking at the botched (?) boobs any longer, Chelsea will survive another week.
3. Aside from the “Colton Days,” I really am impressed with Alicia’s game. When you think about it, SHE’s the one we saw negotiate the Day 1 alliance with the original Salani tribe. And she also managed to stay on good terms with Tarzan and many members of the jury post-merge.  If she can make it to final 3, I think Alicia has a solid shot at convincing a jury that she ran this game. 3. The sudden blindside of Kat last week proved that the girls have no allegiance to any kind of pecking order. This makes the never-gonna-win speedo-clad odd ball out perhaps the safest person out there.
4. I’m speechless when it comes to Tarzan. Truly. But I think he’s safe this week. (They’ve kept him around for a reason: he’s loyal to the core alliance/decision-makers.) 4. Christina is in the same boat as Tarzan. I don’t think she can win the game, but she certainly isn’t threatening enough to be targeted next.
5. I think Christina is safe this week… but only because the remaining players are focused on getting rid of Sabrina (a HUGE threat to win the game) first. 5. Every week, Alicia makes bold claims that she is in control of the game, and she actually might be! If the girls in charge get whiff of this, they will have no trouble cutting her loose.
6. Unfortunately, I think Sabrina is heading to Ponderosa this week. She barely survived last Tribal Council—and it’s clear that several remaining players see her as a threat to win the game. So, unless Sabrina wins immunity, I think she’s the next to go. 6. Sabrina only narrowly missed execution last week. Unless things get shaken up, it looks like she is next on the chopping block.
