The Rules: Each week, Michele Fitzgerald and 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 players will earn.  For example, if Evvie is voted out, Michele will receive two points and Gordon will receive seven. The person with the most points at the end of the season will be declared the “Survivor: 41” Power Rankings champion.

Last Week: Michele had Voce in spot 10, while Gordon had him in spot 14. So, the current score is Team Fitzgerald 10, Team Holmes 14.

Quick Note: The Power Rankings place the players in order of how safe they are heading into the next episode, not how likely they are to win the entire game.

Team Fitzgerald: 10 Team Holmes: 14

1. Danny: We didn’t see much of him this episode but we have all season for that. 1. Shan: We didn’t see a ton from your tribe last week, but what we did see is someone who isn’t in your alliance making a sneaky move and telling you all about it. You’re clearly running the show. Cue your music…
2. Evvie: Secrets are the currency of this game. Your secrets, the secrets you are given, the secrets you give away and the secrets you keep. Evvie is rich right now. 2. Danny: I can’t see this group visiting Tribal Council until there’s a swap or a merge. And even if they do, Danny’s probably liked by everyone.
3. Deshawn: The key to winning is the 3 D’s + 3 O’s so you are halfway there! 3. Ricard: There’s no reason for the Shan/Ricard/JD alliance to break up anytime soon. They have voting fodder for at least the next two rounds.
4. Shan: Shifting the distrust onto Brad means she has created a target should she need one and protects all of her alliances. Smart girl. 4. Deshawn: Yeah, he can’t start a fire, but look at all the intel he scored during the prisoners’ dilemma! The only question is; does he not trust Evvie because Xander didn’t go home?
5. Liana: She has good reads on the game but continues putting her trust in Evvie instead of using her own judgment. If a swap does happen and she is left with Tiff or Xander without Evvie, where will she stand? 5. Sydney: Sydney’s quick strategy drop on her feelings about Naseer sound like they were coming from a woman in charge. That’s literally all I have to go on with that tribe.
6. Naseer: I have played with Tai and Naseer gives me Tai vibes. Grateful to be there, resourceful around camp, interesting story. If he can keep his paranoia in check, he could be a fan favorite. 6. JD: Rough start, but a strong rebound. You’re perfectly safe as long as Brad keeps running around and drawing attention. And that extra vote doesn’t hurt either.
7. Erika: Not much happening with Erika this week. 7. Evvie: For those unfamiliar with the term, an “Intentional Matsing” is when a tribe of six allows their numbers to be picked off so the final two won’t be viewed as threats when they merge/swap. Voce is correct, this is not a feat that four people can safely accomplish.  What’s worse is, you didn’t get rid of the guy with the potential advantages. Andddd…if I’m on the other tribes, I’ve gotta assume there’s a female alliance. Can open…worms everywhere…
8. Genie: I do not remember seeing much of her but her tribe won so thats ok. 8. Erika: Again, no idea what’s going on with the Luvu tribe, but how can you not love Erika? She’s supportive and hilarious. No reason to send her packing.
9. Sydney: We only saw her giving us perspective on Naseer saying that they want to keep him now that he has shown value around the camp. Other than that we don’t have much to go on. 9. Naseer: Fire starter! Wonderful rebound after a rough start.
10. Ricard: Maybe I am just having PTSD from Tony’s spy shack but please everyone stop strategizing at the water well!! 10. Liana:  Yase is a sinking ship. But, I think you can convince Xander to target Tiffany if that idol ever decides to start working.
11. JD: There you go, JD, reintegrate yourself! Survivor 101: It is never too late to find a new position in the game. 11. Heather: Sorry to have you this low, Heather. It’s nothing personal. I just have nothing to go on when it comes to you. And I need to have someone from Luvu low in the rankings in the off chance that your team ever loses.
12. Heather: I am always worried about Heather but her tribe seems strong for now. 12. Brad: It was probably in your best interest to bring it down a few notches after your disastrous premiere. You…uh…did the opposite. You’d better hope your tribe values challenge strength over a peaceful camp.
13. Brad: As sneaky as a spider wearing tap shoes. He was too loud about spying and now he caught himself in his own web. 13. Xander: Hopefully Xander doesn’t need to say his fun catchphrase unless two other people chime in first. I think if the challenge is short of bizarre wisdom and a Yase victory, you need to somehow convince Evvie that you’re a better choice than Tiffany. After her attitude last week, that might not be too hard.
14. Xander: All the power and no power at the same time. If his tribe loses again, Evvie will have to make a decision of him vs. Tiff. 14. Genie: Once again, I think it’s going to come down to challenge strength vs. camp harmony. If Ua drops one, I can see them being afraid of losing the next one if Brad is sent home.
15. Tiffany: I am very worried for her for so many reasons. 15. Tiffany: All around nightmare performance last week. Booting Voce kinda hints toward an all-female alliance. Booting Voce over Xander, doesn’t get rid of Xander’s advantages. Pushing to get rid of Voce over Xander when Evvie is telling you how his advantage works makes you a less-than-ideal alliance mate.
