The Rules: Each week, “Survivor: Nicaragua” finalist Matthew “Sash” Lenahan and XFINITY TV’s “Survivor” loudmouth Gordon Holmes 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 two players will earn. For example, if David is voted out this week, Sash will receive 6 points and Gordon will receive 7 points. Also, each player will pick who they think will win at Redemption Island. If they choose correctly they will receive a bonus point. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Redemption Island” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.
Last Week: Sash and Gordon both had Matt winning the Redemption Island challenge. Sash had Matt in spot ten, Gordon had him in spot six. So, Sash jumps up to a big 87 to 76 lead.
Wanna Play? Last week, several “Survivor” fans posted their own Power Rankings on Twitter. Tag Gordon (@gordonholmes) in your own Twitter Power Rankings, or post your picks in the comment section of this post. If you do better than Gordon does, (which is highly likely) he’ll give you credit in his weekly recap.
Before we get into this week’s action, let’s check in with our second-place competitor…
XFINITY TV: Gordon, you scratched and clawed your way up to a respectable 2-2 record by defeating such notables as Benjamin “Coach” Wade and the “Survivor” All-Stars. Is it disheartening to follow that up with this sad showing?
Gordon Holmes: Not at all. I wanted Sash to be my competition this season because I knew he was capable of giving me a strong battle. I just didn’t know he’d be quite this strong.
XFINITY TV: I’ve noticed you’re now challenging readers to post their picks in the comments section and on Twitter. It seems like most of them are beating you too.
Holmes: That’s not really a question.
XFINITY TV: Fair enough. Here’s a question, do you actually put thought into your picks or do you just throw darts at a list of names?
Holmes: You’re lucky I don’t have any darts right now.
XFINITY TV: That’s not really an answer.
Holmes: Fair enough.
