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 4 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 Jeremiah in spot six, Gordon had him in spot five. So, the current score is Team Ciera 75, Team Gordon 81.
Ciera’s Score = 75

Gordon’s Score = 81

|1. Tony - Considering Tony has a crazy hidden immunity idol that allows him to see the votes before he can use it…I don’t see him going anywhere this week.|| 1. Tony - Ah…the easiest rank I’ve ever had to rank. Tony isn’t going anywhere because of the super idol. So, we might as well look ahead to his road to the million. At this point, the only thing I can see that can stop him is a Jefra/Kass/Trish alliance. He probably can’t get rid of Trish without becoming a full bad guy, so he might gun for Jefra.
| 2. Kass - Kass is close enough with the Tony-Trish alliance and also not on the radar of the Spencer-Tasha alliance. She been very under the radar ever since her big backstab, but she is also unpredictable and a possible swing vote when it starts to get lower in numbers.
|| 2. Kass - Why should Kass worry? She’s everyone’s dream date for the final three. It doesn’t seem like she has any friends on the jury, and her resume is full of unpopular moves.
| 3. Trish - Trish is coming off like Tony’s puppet. I would love to see her make a move against him at some point, but it wouldn’t be smart for her to make that move just yet. Tony seems to be closest with Trish so I don’t think he would use that idol to get rid of her. And she’s not a big enough threat to the others.
|| 3. Woo - Do you want to be the guy who lost your shot at a million dollars because you fell out of a tree? Stay on the ground, buddy. And while you’re there, realize how tough to beat Tony and Trish are becoming.
|4. Woo - Woo should stick with Tony for a while longer, because Tony will always be a bigger threat than Woo. He seems like he gets along well with everyone, hard working around camp and preforming good in the challenges. He also hasn’t had to get any blood on his hands yet which could make for a great speech to the jury.|| 4. Trish - I think Trish is in the most interesting position in the game. She can probably win at a final three if she gets there with the right people. Tasha and Spencer have too many friends on the jury and the majority of the jurors will probably respect Tony’s gameplay enough to give him the prize. So, the trick will be keeping Woo, Kass, and Jefra around long enough to make a move on Tony.
|5. Jefra - Jefra has shown her alliance that she doesn’t completely trust Tony. There is always a bottom in an alliance…and that bottom person is definitely Jefra. Will Jefra make a move to try and further her game? …Doubt it.||5. Spencer - A tough call between Latasha and Spencer this week, but Latasha seems to be better liked and I think Latasha is seen as more of a challenge threat. Also, Spencer has serious “Survivor” chops. You just know he’s going to save all of his auction money for a challenge advantage.|
|6. Latasha - Now that Jeremiah is gone the girls do have the advantage here with numbers. Maybe just maybe Tasha can pull some girl power and get an all-female alliance going. But it probably won’t matter now that Tony has that hidden immunity idol.|| 6. Jefra - I got some grief for being harsh to Jefra in my last recap when I said she couldn’t beat anyone at a final Tribal. Well, I take that back, she could probably beat Kass. Unfortunately for Jefra, the days of the final two have gone the same was as visible luxury items. Also unfortunately for Jefra, she’s the best target in a group that threatens Big-Move Tony.
| 7. Spencer - Tasha and Spencer are very clearly on the bottom. I hate when an episode turns out to be so predictable so I am hoping I am wrong about this. But unless Spencer can pull out an immunity challenge win, he’s probably the next to go.
||7. Latasha - Yeah, I know Latasha has been on the bottom of my rankings forever, but that’s because she’s the one person I think that could beat everyone else at the final Tribal. Add to that her challenge prowess, and you have someone that people will be eager to get rid of quickly.|
