Survivor: Kaôh Rōng is underway and so are the Inside Survivor Power Rankings. Each week, I (Martin “Redmond” Holmes) will test my mettle against Survivor veterans Jeff Varner and Kelley Wentworth.
In Round 2, Martin secured victory with 13 points after ranking second boot Jennifer in 8th place and gaining 5 bonus points for Alecia receiving votes at tribal council. Jeff came in second with 8 points, and Kelley was trailing with 7 points.
Each week the three power rankers will 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 Jason was voted out in Episode 3, Jeff would receive two points, Kelley would receive one point and Martin would receive six points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the Survivor: Kaôh Rōng Power Rankings Champion.
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).
Survivor: Kaôh Rōng Power Rankings Round 3
|1. So stealth you don’t even see her. I trust the absence of airtime has everything to do with her placement and not her lack of personality.||1. Anyone else hoping that one day we get some backstory on that tattoo screenshot that was floating around Twitter? #ANUS||1. “Oh baby give me one more chance. Won’t you please let me… back up your tree.“|
|2. I want to like him. He’s game aware. But I see a drop of douchebaggery. I don’t like the “Blondie” devaluation. Keeping him high right now.||2. A female with confessionals in back to back episodes? Even though her tribe didn’t go to tribal and she wasn’t involved in the main storyline? Looking good, Michele, looking good.||2. “Strollin’ down the beach, weavin’ palm-fronds, sippin’ on coconut juice. Laid back [with my mind on my money and my money on my mind].”|
|3. Not a word out of this beauty this episode. I think they’re saving her for a deep game.||3. I feel like the only thing I know about her is that she’s gonna go far.||3. “Toniiiight, we are young. So let’s set Kaoh Rong on fire.”|
|4. He’s seems at the top of the Brains. Doesn’t appear to play too hard. Seems the most well-placed of his tribe.||4. “Taleb” is the greatest bromance since Chill Town.||4. “Can’t read my, Can’t read my. No he can’t read my poker face [is she gonna use her body].”|
|5. She’s sweet. I haven’t seen what Probst says about her being super smart. So I anticipate we’ll see her around a while until they realize she could win.||5. See Caleb.||5. “I kissed a Tai and I liked it. I hope my girlfriend don’t mind it.”|
|6. Her eye contact is very uncomfortable. That unchanging gaze is super odd. No comment other than she weirds me out a little right now. Her relationship with Neal is important, I think.||6. The guy who blamed Darnell for losing the first IC is responsible for Brawn losing the next IC challenge. That’s what you call karma.||6. “One way or another I’m gonna find ya. I’m gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha. One day, kick the door down. I’m gonna hog-tie ya, I’m gonna tie-ya, I’ll tie-ya.”|
|7. Mixed emotions on her from the first episode. Not seeing much of her, though she redeemed herself in the challenge. Her alliance isn’t revealed, so who knows.||7. She went from narrator to mute. How confusing.||7. “Hey, alright now. Alright now fellas yeah! Now what’s cooler than being cool? (Ice cream!)”|
|8. Not the sharpest, but very enthusiastic. Love him. He’s ambitious and hitting it hard.||8. I haven’t been this into a doctor since the premiere episode of Grey’s Anatomy.||8. “Purple rain, Purple rain.”|
|9. I like her. One of my favorite Brawns. Doing a good job of going with the flow. Her mouth will get her into trouble, though. I’m waiting on the bomb to drop.||9. The Brains tribe appears to be a hot mess – bickering over the fire and water and lord knows what else. Luckily for Neal, he isn’t involved in the drama, which is the perfect place to be.||9. “We didn’t start the fire. It was Alecia working, until the wood was burning. We didn’t start the fire. No, we didn’t light it. But we tried to fight it.”|
|10. Grumpy grandpa. Geez, so negative this week. I didn’t care for the barking. I’m watching this one now with one eyebrow up.||10. And in other news, we have another failed attempt at a female alliance. Cyd heard all that jibberish coming out of Jenny’s mouth and said, “Oh hell no.”||10. “Hello? Is it Aubry you’re looking for?”|
|11. His only airtime last week offers bashing of the older people. His arrogance will make him a post-swap target if he makes it that far.||11. The Invisible Woman.||11. “Try imagining a tribe where you always lose and fall. “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the Storm.”|
|12. He’s won the beauties over. But I’m not sure his Big Brother success will allow him to survive a swap. So I like him, but I’m keeping him low until swap time.||12. The Invisible Man.||12. “Doctor Doctor, gimme the news, I got a… Bad case of Debbie blues.”|
|13. Outside of strength, it doesn’t appear he brings anything. He’s bossy and arrogant which is the perfect recipe for a swap blindside.||13. Papa Joe doesn’t appreciate book smarts. He would prefer to use his street smarts, which were telling him to dump half the kerosene bottle to start one, I repeat one, fire. Absolutely brillliant.||13. “Like a bridge over unboiled water. I will lay me down.”|
|14. She’s on shaky ground. If Brawn can stay out of tribal, a swap may help her greatly. If not, she’s gone.||14. Apparently Debbie’s laser vision allows her to see microbes in water. That’s some crazy super power sh*t right there.||14. “I’m a fire-starter, twisted fire-starter. I’m the b**ch you hated, idol infatuated.”|
|15. With the new Caleb/Tai bond, he becomes the outcast. If beauty loses, I think he’s first out.||15. Watching Joe and Liz argue over the water reminded me of something. If only I could remember…….. Ah, yes, that’s right… San Juan Del Sur. Day 11. Coyopa beach. Dale and Missy rice feud. Oh the memories.||15. “I love that Dirty Water. Oh Kaoh Rong, you’re my home.”|
|16. When Brains lose, Survivor’s newest felon is clearly gone.||16. I don’t know much, but I can confidently say Alecia’s luxury item is not a dictionary. Despite her “never give up” attitude, it HAS to be Alecia if Brawn loses again. Right? Right?||16. “Working 9 to 5 (at Red Lobster, at Chemical Plant, at Civil Airforce). What a way to make a living!”|
