NOTE: XFINITY TV is the place to be for all sorts of “Survivor: Cagayan” back-stabbin’, torch-snuffin’ fun. We’ll have Power Rankings with “Blood vs. Water” competitor Ciera Eastin, every Wednesday evening we’ll bring you a recap of the most recent episode, and every Thursday you’ll be able to watch the previous night’s episode and read an interview with the eliminated contestant. Be sure to follow me on Twitter (@gordonholmes) for immediate updates.

Quick Note: Unfortunately, Ciera had to cancel her participation at the last minute. So, this week’s picks will be pulled from a “Survivor: Gabon” coffee mug.
Another Quick Note: To spice things up between now and the finale, the two combatants will be playing for DOUBLE THE POINTS! (Exciting, right?)
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 (times two!) will determine the number of points the two players will earn. For example, if Woo is voted out this week, Ciera will receive 10 points and Gordon will receive 8 points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Cagayan” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.
Last Week’s Results: Ciera had Tasha in the 3rd spot, Gordon had her in the 6th spot. And, due to the new rules, we’re doubling the points. So, the current score is Team Ciera 86, Team Gordon 99.
Ciera’s Score = 86

Gordon’s Score = 99

| 1. Tony – Team TV is marching to the final four unless Tyler Perry has another magic idol that negates all other idols. (Don’t get any ideas there, Probst.) Right now the only thing that can stop Tony is Spencer making it to the end. He’d better hope the next immunity isn’t a chess tournament.
| 2. Trish – If there were a “Survivor” SAT, I think a good analogy would be Tony is to Trish what Tyson is to Monica. It may seem like Tony and Trish aren’t that close and that Trish is mad that Tony keeps going behind her back, but I’m betting they’re much closer than we’re seeing.
| 3. Kass – Did Kass make the right move last week? If her plan is to go to the end and hope that the jury views Tony the same way past juries have viewed Russell Hantz, then she’s probably in for a rude awakening. It doesn’t seem like Tony has nearly as much heat as Mr. Hantz had in Samoa and…well…other Samoa. And even if he does, the third finalist will probably get more votes than Kass.
| 4. Woo – Here’s my pitch, CBS…Woo goes to different needy schools and entertains the kids while Spencer looks on and makes snarky comments. It’ll be like “The Odd Couple” meets “Extreme Makeover: School Edition.” It’s a license to print money.
|5. Spencer – Probst said Spencer had no chance of winning “Survivor.” I had him ranked 17th out of 18 players for this season. And yet, here he is…two immunity wins away from a million-dollar check. Unfortunately, I think that’s the only way he can get there, because the others would be foolish to keep him around.|
Don’t miss “Survivor: Cagayan” this Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
