Survivor: Ghost Island Week 3 Power Rankings
I’m not off to the greatest start this season with these ol’ predictions. I’ll blame it on the fact that there are approximately 37 reality shows all airing at once right now. Survivor, Challenge, Big Brother, Drag Race, Bachelor, Idol, etc. etc. etc. I go to sleep at night hoping Shangela doesn’t vote to evict Cara Maria if Domenick pulls out his immunity idol when Arie gives his final rose to Paras. I know, I need so much help.
I had Brendan pegged as pretty safe last week until that came crashing down right in my face. I thought the play from Michael was about as well executed as it could get. That four really got screwed by the Ghost Island exile (Kellyn this week) coming back in time for the vote, which hadn’t been a thing up until this point. Oh well. We’ll be down to 15 after this week’s tribal council, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for another swap into 3 tribes to keep things interesting.
I’ve got another great guest with me this week. Taking a small break from the Big Brother Canada 6 coverage, it’s the peace keeper of the LFC, Melissa Deni! Melissa is holding it down in her Survivor draft with the other LFC members, with up-and-coming strategic queens Desiree and Chelsea headlining her team also including Wendell, Bradley, Jenna, and the now-departed Brendan. If you missed that draft, it’s not too late to check it out (here), and make sure you’ve been plugged into all of the BBCAN6 content if you’re following the season. Follow Melissa with three As (@itsmelissaaa) and I (@mattliguori) on twitter, tweet us to let us know what you think and/or leave a comment below!
Kellyn made the correct, albeit totally boring, choice on Ghost Island when she decided not to rock the boat and keep the numbers the same. She’s in the majority and while she’s not blending into the woodwork by any means, she’s also not sticking out like a sore thumb like Bradley. Also, people don’t hate her… unlike Bradley.
Having the Survivor gods already going against your wishes isn’t a great sign! Kellyn has her group of five who proved last week is a strong voting block and that should keep her safe for now. I was initially a little annoyed when she didn’t play the game, but it’s pretty clear she made the right call.
Oooof. Desiree finally gets to a Tribal and still barely gets to talk? She was obviously in with the group’s planning/decision making. She was the one we first saw throwing out Brendan’s name. I still need more from Desiree to know where her game is heading, but right now she’s looking safe.
Lucky you! Michael had a 25% chance of playing his idol correctly and sending Bradley straight to the pre-jury trip. It didn’t happen, which means Bradley and his group of 5 still have the majority and they do look tight. Looks like we’ve got a new villain in town… none other than Captain Complainer. (Or how about Babysitter Bradley?)
Just a little bit of hope (driskill) goes a long way. Seems like the Jenna/Sebastian connection gets rolling next week. If Sea Bass doesn’t mind a third wheel, maybe he spares Steph for another vote. If I was a casual, I’d feel like I’m supposed to be rooting for her, so I don’t think she’s being ripped away from us just yet?
Just like previous weeks, I’m worried Domenick may be giving up too much information. As I’ve mentioned, Laurel does seem interested in working with him over Chris. I just struggle to place Domenick very high because I think if one Jenga piece gets pulled out the wrong way, his game will come crumbling down.
I’m not sure how much longer we can keep up the Chris and Dom storyline, so it has to be coming to an end soon, right? I’ve been waiting for Chris to reach peak Drew Christy, but he’s already passed Drew’s episode count, so maybe Chris is in fact going to reverse the curse of the Drew Christy game? Nah…
