NOTE: XFINITY TV is the place to be for all sorts of “Survivor: Cagayan” back-stabbin’, torch-snuffin’ fun. We’ll have Power Rankings with “Blood vs. Water” competitor Ciera Eastin, every Wednesday evening we’ll bring you a recap of the most recent episode, and every Thursday you’ll be able to watch the previous night’s episode and read an interview with the eliminated contestant. Be sure to follow me on Twitter (@gordonholmes) for immediate updates.
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 two players will earn. For example, if Woo is voted out this week, Ciera will receive 5 points and Gordon will receive 3 points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Cagayan” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.
Last Week’s Results: Ciera had LJ in spot seven, Gordon had him in spot two. So, the current score is Team Ciera 69, Team Gordon 76.
Ciera’s Score = 69

Gordon’s Score = 76

|1. Spencer - Spencer has the idol… and I think he’s smart enough to use it if he senses any trouble, so I don’t think he’s going anywhere this week.|| 1. Trish - OK, let’s get this out of the way quick…I HAVE NO EARTHLY IDEA HOW TO RANK THIS CRAZY SEASON! BETWEEN BIG-MOVE TONY, CHAOS KASS AND THE MYSTERIOUS UBER IDOL I CAN’T FATHOM WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT. IT’S LIKE JEFF PROBST IS TRYING TO GIVE ME A CORONARY. Alright, now that I’ve calmed down, I’m thinking Tony might be able to keep Trish by his side. But who knows, she could be traded to the Padres for an alliance member to be named later.
| 2. Kass - Kass is a total wild card for everyone. And that means she could mean numbers to someone looking to make a move because she’s not a challenge threat and not a threat for jury votes in the end. I don’t think she’s anyone’s major target this week.
|| 2. Spencer - Are you in an alliance with Tony now? Did he just use your numbers to get rid of LJ? Are dogs and cats living together? Mass hysteria? I don’t know. But, I do know you have your idol and you’re not going to keep it as a souvenir.
| 3. Trish - Trish seemed close to Tony before the last vote to get rid of LJ. Now that Tony’s shown to be playing his own game and didn’t seem to care about Trish’s input maybe, just maybe, Trish can make a move to get out Tony.
|| 3. Woo - You’re a part of whatever ballyhoo Tony has cooked up. So, I’m thinking if things backfire on him, you’ll be OK for at least one more vote. But who knows? You might be replaced like Becky on “Roseanne.”
|4. Latasha - Tasha, in my eyes, is one of the biggest threats out there. She’s not only proven herself in challenges but has also shown to be a strategic social player. Right now if people want to split up Spencer and Tasha I think Tasha would be the one to go.|| 4. Kass - Have there ever been two wilder wild cards in one season than the Chaotic One and Officer Blindside? Probably not. The heat is finally off Kass, she should hang back and try to butter up some future jury members.
|5. Woo - So far he has been able to dodge the bullet, either by winning immunity or by being on the good side of a blindside. But his time could be coming if he doesn’t make a move soon.||5. Jeremiah – Is Jefra-miah safe? Nobody knows…|
|6. Jeremiah - Jeremiah is really growing on me and I really love that he is aligning with Spencer. But he is a huge threat to win this game and he is in the alliance with less numbers. But after Tony’s move to get rid of LJ maybe Jeremiah’s alliance does have the numbers?|| 6. Jefra - Food for thought; Jefra, Spencer, Tasha, Jefra-miah, and Spencer’s idol could take over this game. But, it’ll all depend on how Jefra reacts to LJ’s blindside.
| 7. Jefra - Jefra was tight with LJ therefore she may be one of Tony’s targets this week? She also is going to be super easy to get rid of if they just want to get rid of dead weight.
||7. Tony - From here on I’m dubbing Tony’s game the “Lovable Scamp” strategy. He plays this crazy game with a hundred huge moves. Then, when he’s confronted at Final Tribal by LJ or whoever and they say, “You voted me out, bro.” He can respond, “Yeah, wasn’t it awesome?! Isn’t ‘Survivor’ awesome?!” Who could stay mad at that? That being said, no way would I align with him at this point. He’s way too unpredictable.|
|8. Tony - Tony is playing too hard. I think it would have been smarter to keep LJ and get rid of another threat out there because there are many right now. Now that LJ is gone his old alliance probably won’t trust him and if he doesn’t win immunity he could definitely be the one going home this week.|| 8. Tasha – Why are you on the bottom again? Because you’re just too dangerous. The jury is going to be full of pro-Tasha folks. People have to see that.
