QUICK NOTE: XFINITY.com is the place to be for all of your bug-eatin’, back-stabbin’, “Survivor” coverage. During the season we’ll have insightful weekly Power Rankings with Bradley Kleihege, exit interviews, and full episode recaps. Follow me on Twitter (@gordonholmes) for up-to-the-minute updates.
The Rules: For the final round, each player will receive ten points for each person they put in the correct position. Spot 1 is the sole Survivor and spot six is the first person voted out of Wednesday’s finale. The person with the most points at the end of the season will be declared the “Survivor: David vs. Goliath” Power Rankings champion.
Last Week: Bradley Kleihege had Christian in spot seven, Gordon Holmes had him in spot five. So, the current score is Team Bradley 109, Team Gordon 124.
Bradley’s Score: 109

|1. Nick: He has been shown as proactive in his alliance making (even if he insists upon naming them like he is on “Big Brother”), adept at dodging a target on his back, crafty with advantages and idols, and he has an inspirational story to boot. If he can keep Davie out of the final 3 (which he may not even need to do but) I fully expect Nick to be our winner! Score one for the good guys (lawyers haha)!||1. Nick: It’s all going to come down to Nick and Davie and Davie will have to walk the tightrope to get there. Once he’s gone, having Davie and Christian on the jury will be all Nick needs to take home the million.|
|2. Mike: Mike has played a solid game but I think so have many of the other five. When you factor this in with Mike’s Hollywood career, I don’t see the jury giving Mike the million over anyone else besides Angelina and maybe Alison.||2. Mike: Of the 40 alliances Nick made, the Rock Stars is the act that’s going to get him to the curtain call. Mike made some big moves and won at least one immunity challenge, but his fate will be the same as when the School of Rock came up just short against No Vacancy.|
|3. Angelina: I fully expect Angelina to be on everyone’s list to bring along to the final Tribal Council. While she may have pulled all the right moves, from my vantage point, on the couch, she did so brazenly and without tact. But worry not, Angelina would probably want me to remind you she has so much Ivy League knowledge she will be able to turn her $80k into $1 million.||3. Angelina: Question: What does Angelina have in common with Spider-Man?
Answer: Both of their stories rely on Uncle Ben. Also…neither will win this season of “Survivor.
|4. Davie: If Nick makes the final Tribal Council (and wins), then Davie doesn’t, and vice versa. Davie has been a delight to watch and has played a great game, including catching all manner of sea creatures, finding idols and advantages, and never lacking charm while doing it.||4. Kara: You’re the one person left who I feel like we know nothing about. That’s not your fault, there are only 42 minutes in every episode.|
|5. Kara: Kara has played a good game but, unfortunately, I think it will not be enough on Wednesday to make it to the final Tribal Council and have a shot at the million. She showed impressive aptitude in her handling of Dan and knowing when she needed to pivot and move away from him. Her social game also seems to have been on point. I’m not sure what it is, but I feel like there has been a missing link in her game. I look forward whether or not she will figure it out and dominate if she gets a second chance on “Survivor.”||5. Alison: She’s always been viewed as a threat without doing anything particularly threatening. That’s literally the opposite of what you want.|
|6. Alison: I was wrong about Alison this season on several counts; Alison is not a goat and has clearly been “playing the game,” she also did not get voted out as soon as she started speaking, and she hasn’t been irrelevant to the machinations of the season. So, my bad Alison, give them hell this week.||6. Davie: I want Davie to take this whole thing, but it’ll take a combination of immunity wins, idols, or fire-making to get him there. He’s the only person left that’s unbeatable in front of a jury and everyone knows it.|
