Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X Power Rankings Round 2


Julia Sokolowski and Randy Bailey rank the players in Round 2 of the Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X Power Rankings.

The battle between generations is taking place this season on Survivor: Millennials and Gen X. But the real war is happening here on Inside Survivor, as former Survivor players Julia Sokolowski and Randy Bailey, as well as Inside Survivor head honcho, Martin “Redmond” Holmes, fight it out in the Inside Survivor Power Rankings.

Previously on Power Rankings…

Usually, the first round is just a practice game where no points are gained. However, Randy, the rule breaker that he is, took to Twitter to tell us that the first round points should count.

As Julia was on board with Randy’s proposition, we agreed to make the first round count. So, in Round 1, Martin took the early lead, gaining 12 points for ranking Rachel in 12th place. Julia is in second place with 5 points and Randy is bringing up the rear with just 3 points. But it’s still early days and all to play for.

The Rules

We use the Gordon Holmes format of Power Rankings. Each week the three power rankers create separate rankings based on least likely to most likely to be eliminated. The ranking of the player who is voted out of the next episode will determine the number of points the three rankers will earn. For example, if David is voted out in Episode 2, Randy will receive one point, Julia will receive fourteen points, and Martin will receive sixteen points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X Power Rankings Champion.

Bonuses:

If the player ranked in 1st place finds an idol you gain 10 points.
If the player ranked in last place isn’t eliminated but receives a vote(s) against them you gain 5 points.
If the player ranked in 1st place wins individual immunity you gain 10 points (post-merge).

David’s edit is the red herring edit of S33 much like the Fishbach edit from Second Chance. Like Fishbach, David has his own “clown music soundtrack” that accompanies every confessional. He has no chance of winning but has a great chance of finding an idol and getting me 10 bonus points. No one with their own music goes home week 2.

Chris and Bret are the self-appointed co-leaders of the Gen X tribe. They both are workhorses around camp and are solid in challenges.

Just completed my re-watch of the premiere and I finally can tell Bret and Chris apart. Just can’t tell which one of them is most boring.

I was expecting more of a villain edit for Zeke. And Zeke, you may be right about Survivor changing people but NOT after 2 days. Hopefully a reward challenge wins you a razor so you can shave that stupid mustache. Also, lose the Hawaiian shirt!

I have underestimated young William. The boy has some game. His social game appears solid and his confessional insight, although quite lame, is mostly accurate.

Michaela did not get a ton of airtime in the premiere. She's either boring, or she will be around for a while. Michaela is definitely not boring so it must be the latter. I did not expect to like her like I do.

Hannah and Mari joined forces to be co-founders of the Millennial nerd alliance. I am expecting the nerd alliance to dictate who goes home from the Millennials the first few weeks if they lose immunity. This is not good news for the cool kids.

I look for Adam to recognize where the numbers are and team up with Mari and Hannah. Adam is getting a lot of narrator time for the Millennial tribe. Narrators always go fairly deep.

Jay will be the last cool kid left standing and the only cool kid to make the merge. The sooner he cuts the cord with Taylor the better.

Last week’s previews suggest that someone may be having a heart attack. Common sense tells me that it must be the oldest guy Paul. From watching about 450 episodes of Survivor and 447 of them having misleading previews, I’d guess that Paul is safe.

Only 33 more days and Jessica’s legacy advantage will have matured. Only problem is that the legacy advantage will probably be on about its fifth owner by then. Jessica needs a tribal swap soon to have a prayer of making the merge. Congratulations Jessica; you get first place amongst the Survivors named Jessica.

Divide the total number of people in your tribe by 2. Then add 1. Now you have a majority alliance. Taylor, you created an alliance of 4 in a tribe of 10. Good luck with the shortest showmance ever.

My initial assessment of CeCe was correct. She will go home this week if Gen X loses but I believe she will be spared due to an unexpected Gen X win.

Figgy, your edit deteriorated the entire premiere. It went from charming to downright mean and cocky. I have seen this before. FORGET YOU! GO HOME! GOODBYE!

Time to coin a new Survivor term - the "attorney-journey edit". For when a super, self-serious lawyer makes it deep into the game and does not change.
