‘Survivor: South Pacific’ Power Rankings – Week 4

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 Whitney is voted out this week, Andrea will receive 6 points and Gordon will receive 3 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: Both Andrea and Gordon had Stacey in spot fifteen and Christine winning at Redemption Island for a total of sixteen points each. The score is now Team Boehlke 48, Team Holmes 49.

Fun Fact: Andrea is a fan of the Milwaukee Brewers and Gordon is a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals. This development is the latest in a long list of reasons why Gordon dislikes Andrea.

#1 Albert: Just. Can’t. Seem. To. Move. Albert. Down. Even if he is a snorer. Reasons? See first 3 power rankings. . #1 Albert: Gotta love Albert…the strong, silent type. Well, except for the snoring. And I’m assuming he’s silent; the editors never show him talking. But he’s definitely strong. Super strong even. That’s all I have to say.
#2 Keith: Keith is like, the Savaii Albert and therefore should not be touched until merge. K thx bye. . #2 Keith: After last week’s exit interview, Papa Bear hinted that there might be a bit of a showmance going on between Keith and Whitney. That strategy has only ever paid off once in this show (“Boston” Rob and Amber Mariano).
#3 Coach: This C.R.A.B.S. master has a firm grip of his tribe and is trying his darndest to keep paranoia (aka Brandantz aka Brandon Hantz) under control. The only thing that he doesn’t know about is that Brandantz told Edna she isn’t a part of the core alliance. But Edna doesn’t really have any numbers besides Edna, so….yeah. . #3 Whitney: But on the other hand, the one time the showmance strategy did work out they ended up with two million dollars, appearances on “The Amazing Race,” beautiful kids, a show on the History Channel…
#4 Sophie: We didn’t hear much from Sophie this week, but that is because she is a silent assassin and working her magic within the C.R.A.B.S. alliance. Silent is another word to add on to last week’s brilliant Sophie alliteration. . #4 Sophie: During our pre-game interview, Sophie said that she wanted to be the head of a braintrust like the janitor in “Scrubs.” Since the editors aren’t showing much of her, I’m assuming that’s exactly what she’s doing.
#5 Rick: We found out this episode that Rick isn’t into Albert’s snoring. Oh Rick, stop kidding yourself. You are a snorer if I ever saw one! You are basically the poster child/man for snoring! Anyway, Rick is silent and safe this week. . #5 Rick: I’m always excited when I reach the point in the season where I don’t have to look at the cast list anymore while writing these rankings. I was almost there this week, except I forgot about Rick. Ahem…SHOW MORE RICK!
#6 Whitney: Purple Whitney is sitting pretty for now. She is still in the random 3+2 pretty people alliance (which is actually crumbling as we just found out), but she isn’t a target this week like her bud Elyse. Apparently you can snuggle up to Keith, but not Ozzy. Note taken. . #6 Coach: Coach did a fantastic job talking Brandon down after his little meltdown last week. So, why am I bumping the Dragon Slayer down? Because I think it’s odd that he’s so tied to such a loose cannon. That might land him in some trouble.
#7 Jim: Jim is thinking outside of the 3+2 alliance now that he sees Elyse cozying up to the Oz. I would too—PDA is gross if you’re not a part of it. (Especially Jungle PDA!) I have my fingers crossed that this is a breakout episode for Jim and crazy things are going to happen over at Savaii. . #7 Jim: It looks like Jim is prepared to ditch his ill-advised “Three Plus Two” strategy. I think that’s wise. Going to the end of the game with Keith and Ozzy would have been a disaster for him. My only worry for him is that Cochran is a big fan of the big move. That could burn Jim later.
#8 Brandon: Brandon sure knows how to keep things interesting. And by interesting I mean ‘loca.’ And by ‘loca’ I mean he is a hot mess. However, Coach seems to be taking Brandon under his wing and still recognizes him as a useful part of the tribe. Brandon may still be in the C.R.A.B.S. but it’s only a matter of time until Coach is only left with a S.C.A.R. . #8 Dawn: Nice to see Dawn pull out a big win last week. I know it meant a lot to her to get in there and show what she could do after being cut from “Redemption Island.” She’s in a pretty good spot too as she’ll be the swing vote if Jim starts shaking things up at Savaii.
#9 Ozzy: Things are just not looking good for Ozzy. The more comfortable he gets, the more in trouble he is. He doesn’t know that Keith told people about his idol. He also has no idea that Jim is scheming behind his back. Scandal is a brewing and Ozzy better catch wind of it pronto. . #9 Ozzy: With all of the unrest at Savaii camp, Ozzy had better hope that Whitney was the only person Keith told about his idol. Right now it looks like Jim and Cochran will boot Elyse first, but that could change if they’re worried about him hitting the merge with an idol.
#10. Cochran: Now that Jim is reaching out to him, he may have an edge on Dawn. Is this Cochran’s breakout episode? He somehow finds a way to avoid being voted out every week. Some say luck, I say skill. . #10 Cochran: I’m still not 100% positive that Jim isn’t messing with you…although why would he?
Mikayla . EDNA
#11. Mikayla: Mikayla sure is hard to place. She isn’t in the core alliance but seems to have gotten into better graces with her tribe, errrrr with Brandon. As long as Edna keeps talking about Buffalo, Mikayla may be safe. . #11 Edna: They made it seem like Edna was in trouble last week, but I can’t imagine Coach would send his ace in the hole packing. Either way, I’m moving her down in the rankings just in case I’m wrong about that.
#12. Elyse: It’s hard out there for a hot girl. In most seasons it helps to be an attractive girl, but in this season you are apparently cursed. Elyse may very well be on the chopping block and have no idea. This could be the “Best. Blindside. EVER!” Please note that this is a quote, not my words. . #12 Brandon: How on Earth did Stacey get to Brandon? When somebody is obviously on their way out of the game, they’ll say anything to survive. That’s ‘Survivor’ 101. And yet somehow Brandon fell for it. Something about the Samoan air must be messing with this kid’s head.
EDNA . Mikayla
#13 Edna: So apparently Edna is annoying the tribe and is REALLY interested about buffalo hunting. She also has wind that she isn’t part of the main alliance, but is it just a little too late? The one thing she has going for her is that Coach is the one person not annoyed by her antics, and it seems as if Coach is calling the shots. . #13 Mikayla: How is Mikayla still on the outside looking in at the majority alliance? Have we seen Mikayla talking strategy with anyone? This leads me to believe that she might still suffer after the fallout of Brandon-gate.
#14 Dawn: I love Dawn, and I love that she is Dawnminating these challenges, but I just don’t know how she is going to stick around if she doesn’t find an alliance with numbers. I’m really pulling for Dawn this week, and I am hoping that Jim is conducting some awesome blindside. For Dawn’s sake, please! . #14 Elyse: It’s always a little sad when an alpha male’s gal pal gets voted out. What’d she ever do? If it was after the merge she’d be OK, but Savaii can’t afford to lose Ozzy’s challenge strength right now.
#15 Gordon: Just not cutting it this week. First he steals my C.R.A.B.S.  Then he’s all like, “I’m the puzzle guy, I’m the puzzle master!” Nobody cares, Gordo. And did you see the secret scene where he filled my shoes with dead fish? Ughh..the nerve! Gordon? Pshhh. More like GorGONE. . #15 Andrea: Dude. You don’t get to just add me to the power rankings whenever you want. Now, I have to make rankings graphics for us. (See above) And I always give you credit when I use C.R.A.B.S. in my recaps. And you never save me any crispy rice! I LOVE the crispy rice!
Redemption Island Pick – Christine: Christine wins. Hey, get out of her way—she is pullin’ a Matt! . Redemption Island Pick – Christine: Stacey proved she’s super strong last week, but Christine has the one-on-one-challenge experience edge. So…I’m going to stick with Christine.
