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: 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 players will earn. For example, if Angela is voted out this episode, Roark will receive five points and Gordon will receive six points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Ghost Island” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.
Last Week: Roark had Chelsea in spot eight. Gordon had her in spot seven. The current score is Team Roark 125, Team Gordon 128.
Quick Note: Rankings are not based on who the player thinks is most likely to win. The smart strategy is to rank players based on how safe you think they are in the upcoming vote.
Roark’s Score: 125

|1. Domenick: SOMEHOW THESE PEOPLE BOTH STILL HAVE IDOLS||1. Domenick: If Dom and Wendell turn on each other, and that’s a pretty big “If” it’ll probably be at final five. No need to rock the boat just yet.|
|2. Wendell: This is absolutely bonkers. See above.||2. Wendell: You had me sweating a bit last week, but you stuck to your guns and kept that idol in your pocket. I don’t want to put too much pressure on you, but you’re my winner pick. Nineteen seasons of failure. Reverse that curse.|
|3. Laurel: She may be catching a lot of flack, but so far, no one has proven to her that their path can give her better options than Dom and Wendell. I understand the choices, and why it frustrates viewers, but I’m not gonna rake her over the coals for doing what’s best for her.||3. Laurel: Anyone who thinks Laurel is just content to get no votes in third place doesn’t know her very well. She’s really smart. I think her plan is to bounce Dom at five and then hope someone can beat Wendell at fire-making. I think she can beat Donathan and Angela in front of a jury. But, she’s walking a tightrope at this point.|
|4. Donathan: Donathan is stirring up drama, and that may be the perfect excuse to cut him at this point. The boys seem to have Sebs in their pocket still, and the dominant alliance has so many advantages.||4. Donathan: It seems like you’re going to cause some trouble, but I can’t imagine a situation where you’d get enough votes to do any major damage.|
|5. Angela: Greetings, person who is still on this show!||5. Sea Bass: Seriously? You took all of the guys on the family reward? Have you ever seen this show before?|
|6. Sea Bass: Sebs is tight with the bros, so until they view that extra vote as dispensable, he’s OK.||6. Angela: There’s no real reason to get rid of you at this point. In fact, I’d be trying to figure out a way to get you to the end. But, there’s always the chance that Kellyn wins immunity and the others aren’t ready to make their moves just yet.|
|7. Kellyn: If this group of 4 holds up, Kellyn is on the wrong side of a bad situation.||7. Kellyn: I’m not sure what your move is at this point. Domendell aren’t going anywhere this week. Donathan and Sea Bass are in the clique and Angela is harmless. Win that immunity, kid!|
