QUICK NOTE: XFINITYTV.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, 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 Tai is voted out this episode, Shirin will receive five points and Gordon will receive four points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Kaôh Rōng” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.
Last Week: Shirin had Julia in spot seven, Gordon had her in spot six. The current score is Team Shirin 97, Team Gordon 94.
Quick Note: Rankings are not based on who the player thinks is most likely to win. The smart strategy is to rank the contestants based on who is the most likely to be voted out in the next episode.
Another Quick Note: Shirin has become a pro wrestling fan since returning from “Survivor: Second Chance.” That is equal parts awesome and hilarious. So, we’re tying this week’s Power Rankings into our favorite WWE Superstars. My apologies to those who don’t know what we’re talking about.
Shirin’s Score = 97

| 1. – Aubry: If you want some, come get some. #CenaWinsLol
|| 1. – Joe: Toward the end of his amazing career, Andre the Giant teamed up with Haku and won the World Tag Team Titles. This was done to cover up the fact that Andre’s health wouldn’t allow him to do very much. He would basically let Haku do all the work, then come it at the end to do his duty.
| 2. – Michele: With Unicorn hair as her wand’s core, the Power of Positivity courses through her and keeps her in the rumble. #GluteusFree
|| 2. – Aubry: Now, it may seem uninspiring to compare Aubry to mid-carder Haku in this analogy. But in real life, Haku was the most fearsome man on the roster. You couldn’t pay Hulk Hogan to mess with Haku. That’s Aubry. She’s gonna run through everybody.
| 3. – Joe: He never loses but he’s still the Deadman.
|| 3. – Michele: Sasha Banks and Charlotte got all of the attention during the start of the Divas Revolution, but now the fans are starting to realize how talented Becky Lynch is. Don’t sleep on her or she’ll make you pay.
| 4. – Cydney: And now I ain’t going home
Had a dream I hadn’t made it
There’s nothing dragging down me now
Cause a girl gonna push it all out the way.
| 4. – Tai: I remember it like yesterday when you sent Scot flying through the barber shop window. You’re entertaining as heck and will go down as one of the show’s most beloved characters, but you won’t quite be the best ever.
| 5. – Tai: From face to heel to face to heel… #BigShow
|| 5. – Cydney: Million-dollar body, but doesn’t quite have the personality to win over the crowd? Clearly you’re Lex Luger…Chris Masters…Sylvain Grenier?
| 6. – Jason: He’s on the (Lunatic) fringe and too public about his willingness to enter the (Ambrose) asylum.
|| 6. – Jason: You had your moment in the sun a few weeks ago, but it’ll take a miracle for you to get to the main-event triple-threat match. And even if you do, there’s no chance you’ll leave with the title. Woo woo woo…you know it.
