Survivor: Kaôh Rōng Player of the Week Episode 9 (Results)

Each week on Inside Survivor we will be awarding one castaway from the current season the title of Player of the Week. After watching the latest episode fans can vote for which player impressed them the most with their social skills, strategic prowess, craftiness, and creativity. We will keep a tally throughout the season so that we can keep track of who is impressing the most.


Week 1: Jason (14.7%)
Week 2: Caleb (40%)
Week 3: Debbie (42.4%)
Week 4: Caleb (67.8%)
Week 5: Scot (29%)
Week 6: Julia (37.1%)
Week 7: N/A
Week 8: Cydney (74.4%)

On Thursday we opened up a fan poll for the Inside Survivor readers to vote for their player of the week for Episode 9 of Survivor: Kaôh Rōng – Brains vs. Beauty vs. Brawn. The winner of that poll and Player of the Week is…


Aubry has had a game of ups and downs, but when it comes to tribal council, she is always on the right side of the vote. She has now formed a powerful partnership with Cydney, and the two of them controlled the vote this week. Regardless of whether taking out Debbie was a wise move in the long run (we won’t know until the following episodes), the immediate result meant that Aubry, and her new closest ally Cydney, were safe from the vote. Had they voted for Jason, Scot or Tai there was high potential they could have been idoled out. Aubry has good reads on people. She recognized that Julia was double-dealing and the episode verified that.

Aubry continues to be on the right side of the vote and is increasing in power week by week, and that has earned her Player of the Week.

    I was thinking Tai was the best player, but I can somewhat see the reasoning for Aubry, even if she did take out a number of her own. Julia has crushed her chances of winning though, because by purposefully putting herself with the goats she has made herself a goat for the goats themselves, so I don’t see how she could have played well this episode.

      Depends. At this point, Julia hasn’t actually voted with them. She could yet come back from that. Winning immunity when your neck is on the line (even though she didn’t know it) and then being the swing vote is a pretty good week.

      But I voted for Aubry, and I’m glad she won.

      I think Julia would never win against Cydney, Aubry, Debbie or Michelle. Not only she can’t win against them, she probably wouldn’t be at the Final Tribal Council cause she was at the bottom of the alliance. So it is a smart move for her. She can win against Jason and Scot because they are hated. I don’t see why you think she became a goat at all.

  • Matthew Hecht

    About time she got a win.

  • IRONic

    You know, I kinda think that the winners of Episodes 6 and 9 should have been switched. With Aubry winning Episode 6 and Julia winning 9.

      Also before last week I thought Julia was a useless player, who would only get to FTC if she was carried. However after that episode I’ve completely changed my mind about her, granted she’s not quite my favourite yet…but she’s really started to make up for her almost non existent pre-merge edit.

  • Mohammed Dakhil

    Am I the only one who Really Hates Julia for trying to switch on the girls??

  • Taylor

    Aubry is pretty paranoid and dumb to be honest. She destroyed her alliance with Debbie (a person she could beat easily in the end) in order to form an alliance with Cydney (the strongest person in the game who would easily beat her in the end). Debbie would have gone to the end with Aubry, but I highly doubt Cydney is willing to go to the end with her. As far as Aubry reading people well…. she couldn’t have been more wrong about Julia as she stuck with the girls and eliminated Debbie even when she admitted that Cydney was the bigger threat.

    • Martin Holmes

      Aubry read that Julia was trying to position herself better by talking to the guys. That was followed by Julia saying she would like to sit next to Scot and Jason at the end, and then telling them the plan. The edit backed up Aubry’s read.
