After reviewing the latest episode, we will determine which player impressed us the most with their social skills, strategic prowess, craftiness, and creativity.

Here is what the Inside Survivor contributors had to say about Jeremy Collins after Episode 5:
Martin: While Kimmi certainly had a break-out episode, and a definite hand in the vote, I’m not sure if she made the right decision for her game. There may have been somewhat of a personality clash between Kimmi and Monica, but overall Monica was loyal to Kimmi and wanted to include her in her plans. Jeremy, on the other hand, remains the go-to-guy on Bayon. The plan was brought to him for his verdict. Disposing of Monica now takes out someone that would likely come after Jeremy later in the game. Jeremy is keeping allies, voting out enemies, and has an idol in his pocket.
Shawn: This was a great week on Survivor unless you’re Monica Padilla. Jeremy was willing to play the long game and vote out Monica, severing ties with an original member of the Bayon tribe. His calling the shots at Bayon was the determining factor in who went home. Jeremy has set himself up well with many strong alliances and looks to be in a great position
Jacob: Jeremy, by all apparent means, is in a great position right now. Idol in his pocket, diligent majority alliance, and he’s an upstanding guy! I find myself nervous for his long-term game, but for now, he’s done a great job.
Rob: My first instinct was to vote for Kimmi for player of the week, because of her breakout star edit, but thinking about it more, Jeremy really is the one coming out better. Monica was loyal to Kimmi, and the girl’s alliance was a good idea – especially because it would have only benefitted Kimmi’s game more. Monica was eventually gunning for Jeremy if this girls alliance came to fruition. He definitely used Kimmi’s distrust of Monica to his advantage and went along with that blindside, thus helping him get rid of a player who could have been a potential liability for him later in the game.
