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 Roark Luskin, 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 rank the remaining Survivors in the order in which they think they will finish. The first contestant is the winner, the second received the second most votes at Tribal, etc. Each correct placement is worth two points. At the end of the round, the person with the most overall points will be named the “Survivor: Ghost Island” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.
Last Week: Roark and Gordon both had Kellyn in spot seven. The current score is Team Roark 132, Team Gordon 135.
Roark’s Score: 132

|1. Wendell: This may sound random, but I can’t forget that Sea Bass confessional from when he reunited with Wendell via a swap. Sea Bass is so enamored of Wendell because Wendell remembered to bring him a shell. What I’m saying is, I think Wendell is insanely likable. Likability is insanely pertinent.||1. Wendell: I’ve gone back and forth trying to figure out which way the jury will go in the inevitable Wendell/Dom battle. And, I think I’ve let Kellyn’s word association talk me into a Wendell win. She referred to Wendell as “intuitive” and Domenick as a “reckless dictator.” They both ran the show, but Wendell did it with a smoother touch.|
|2. Domenick: The other member of the dynamic duo. Domenick is the other obvious power player – but he is also more outspoken and brash. Wendell’s charm may give him the edge.||2. Domenick: I also think your feud with Chris could come back to bite you. But, I’ll probably change my mind five minutes from now. Either way, both guys are worthy champions.|
|3. Laurel: Laurel has played a quiet, loyal game that has upset many fans and will probably not impress the jury. I am a big Laurel fan and will defend her at all costs so come at me.||3. Laurel: When people are as dominant as Domenick and Wendell, the jury tends to want to punish the person who allowed them to become so dominant. Unfortunately, that’s you. I think your legacy for this season is that you waited too long to take your shot.|
|4. Angela: To be fair, I have no idea what these people’s fire skills are. I’m just going to make a leap and assume hers aren’t good. Congrats Angela. You did fine.||4. Donathan: Yeah…you caused a pretty big stir last week. But, I think they have bigger fish to fry. Better start working on those fire-making skills.|
|5. Sebastian: If Dom/Wen/Laurel stick together to the end, I could understand cutting Sea Bass here. Angela probably has a minimal chance to succeed in fire, win immunity that isn’t related to guzzling….you know, or get a single jury vote.||5. Angela: Can you imagine a situation where Angela wins? Maybe if she gets to the end with Sebastian and Donathan and they personally insult each of the jurors’ mothers?|
|6. Donathan: Donathan is starting to fray at the edges and it couldn’t be more obvious. Sea Bass is a solid vote, and Angela appears to also still be on the show, so I think Donathan will be the first finale sacrifice.||6. Sebastian: Can Sebastian still win “Survivor”? Absolutely. I think he can make it happen against any combination of Angela, Donathan, and Laurel. That’s why I think he’s the first to go. Wendell and Dom don’t want to give him a chance to compete in the fire-making challenge.|
