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 two players will earn. For example, if Sophie is voted out this week, Andrea will receive 3 points and Gordon will receive 4 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: South Pacific” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.
Last Week: Andrea came back swinging, picking Papa Bear in spot sixteen while Gordon had him in spot fifteen. Both players earned a bonus point for picking Christine to win the duel. The score is now Team Boehlke 32, Team Holmes 33.
Before we dive into this week’s rankings, let’s take a moment to check in with Andrea…
Gordon Holmes: Andrea, thank you so much for being a part of this season’s Power Rankings. What’ve you been up to since your time on “Survivor”?
Andrea Boehlke: The biggest change for me was that I up and moved to New York City! I graduated with a BFA in theatre, so I moved out here from Wisconsin three months ago. I am now doing a lot of random things and I love it. I’m a hostess at a restaurant in the meatpacking district called The Standard Grill, I joined a new theatre company started by Vincent Pastore from “The Sopranos.” It is my dream to eventually begin my own production or theatre company with a few of my best friends, so being a part of Vinny’s theatre company is a great learning experience. There are a lot of working actors and directors in the group, many who were on “The Sopranos” with Vinny as well as current projects. I’m also an assistant to a director/acting teacher in Manhattan where I keep track of all the students’ tuitions/billings/class schedule. I am also blogging for this season and am a co-host for a website called SuperPass where we podcast about the “Survivor” episodes. I also audition. Basically, I’m pretty busy but I’m finding time to enjoy myself out here too. It is so very different from Wisconsin as I’m used to being surrounded by either my family or friends in a college setting. So, sometimes I feel alone out here, but I have the “Survivor” family and some good friends out here to pick me up. NYC really is a blast.
Holmes: How are you feeling about this season so far?
Boehlke: I LOVE watching this season, especially when I get to watch it with the NYC “Survivor” crew. I thought it would be hard to watch a new season since I would miss being on the show myself—however it is a huge relief to not be in the spotlight or paranoid about editing! I also think it is a pretty solid season so far with a bunch of good characters. I really want to see more of the invisible characters, so I hope we see more of them as time goes on.
Holmes: You picked up your first Power Rankings win last week. Was it everything you dreamed it would be?
Boehlke: Yes, I must admit that it felt great to beat THE Gordon Holmes after coming up short the week before.
Holmes: Don’t get used to it. In honor of your big win, I’m leading the article with a picture of Albert. But fair warning, on weeks when I win I’m going to lead with a picture of Mikayla. Do you think this is the only way I can get guys to root for me over you?
Boehlke: See—I just thought you had a tiny crush on Mikayla. Now I know you have other motives! Is this some sort of popularity contest?! It all goes back to Holmes vs. Boehlke.

|#5 Coach: Coach continues to keep his C.R.A.B.S. intact, and now he also seems to have upgraded to B.R.A.C.E.S. with an Edna on board! (Darn—I can’t take credit for that. B.R.A.C.E.S. was a David Healy creation.)||.||#5 Whitney: I think Whitney might be a secret genius. Semhar, however, poked some holes in my theory. Either way, she’s Keith’s confidant and Keith is super safe until the merge.|
