Inside Survivor’s choice for Player of the Week for Survivor: Cambodia – Second Chance Episode 7 is…

Here is what the Inside Survivor contributors had to say about Jeremy Collins after Episode 7:

Martin: This week was tough! I could make arguments for a number of players to take the player of the week. Tasha got rid of her enemy Kass. Joe and Spencer managed to find their way into the majority. But the point I kept coming back to is that all those players were following somebody else’s orders. Jeremy meanwhile was relaxed and stable and in control. Again, people came to HIM to ask who they should vote out. Jeremy also was the first to suggest splitting the votes (which went off without a hitch). And not once did his name come up as a potential target. Jeremy played the merge episode perfectly.

Jacob: No one has as much social control as Jeremy. His plan to appear smaller than the other alpha males has been paying off in tangent with smart strategic play.

Rob: Jeremy continues to impress me with his subtle gameplay this season. He’s never in the crosshairs to be voted out, and he’s always central to what’s going on. People are coming to him for the vote, and he’s dictating a lot of the moves that are happening. While he isn’t as flashy as some of the other competitors, he’s definitely in the driver’s seat, and he knows what he’s doing.

  1. The contributors’ obsession with Jeremy is nauseating. He didn’t even make a major move. Was clueless as to how to split the vote, was unsure if Kass had an Idol, had only conversations with his “BRO’s”…

  2. I don’t know why you guys insist to give Jeremy the player of the week… he is playing a great game but he hasn’t made any big moves yet to be the “player of the week”…. he might be playing the best game OVERALL but he has never been the star of any episode. This is absurd change the name of the column to who is playing the best game overall then…
