Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X

Power Rankings Round 11

Julia Sokolowski, Randy Bailey, and Martin Holmes rank the players in Round 11 of the Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X Power Rankings.

Previously on Power Rankings…

In Round 10, Martin finished in first place, receiving 25 points for ranking Chris in 9th place and Jessica in 11th place and receiving 5 bonus points for Jessica receiving votes in the first tribal council. Randy came in second with 21 points, also receiving 5 bonus points for Jessica receiving votes in the first tribal council. Julia finished third with 16 points. Martin remains in the lead with 146 points overall, Randy follows in second with 136 points, and Julia is last with 111 points.

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 Jay is voted out, Julia will receive 8 points, Randy will receive 2 points and Martin will receive 1 point. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X Power Rankings Champion.

If a ranker wants to take a more strategic approach to their rankings they can play for…

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).

Ken
Ken gets the number one spot this week primarily because I am so disappointed in everyone else.
1
Ken
King Ken is killing it.
1
Jay
The "lone wolf" bides his time, waiting to pick at the scraps left over from the ongoing war.
2
Jay
Jay is no longer on anyone’s radar and has an immunity idol as well as two guaranteed votes sitting on the jury. Screw strategy, athleticism, puzzle solving ability, social game, whatever; luck is the single biggest most important component of this game.
2
David
Safe under Ken’s wing.
2
Sunday
♫Targeted Jessica on Monday, Went for a chopper ride on Tuesday, We were drawing rocks by Wednesday, And on Thursday and Friday and Saturday, We chilled on Sunday.♫
3
Hannah
Hannah McNickle does have a nice ring to it.
3
Adam
There are bigger fish to fry.
3
Zeke
Zeke's army survived the battle. Can he survive the war?
4
Zeke
Unbelievable social game. Unfortunately a little too good.
4
Bret
Boozy Bret bonding with the bros.
4
Ken
Keep chopping coconuts and staying quiet, and people will end up saving you anyway.
5
Adam
The bottom five castaways this week all chose to draw rocks and to have a 1 in 6 chance of going home instead of anonymously switching their vote and being 100% safe. I know I was not there and do not know the full story but what I do know is that on day 30 with ten people left YOU DO NOT GO TO ROCKS. The remaining four will be listed alphabetically in honor of Sean Kenniff. And by the way Adam; nice Ken tip for David’s idol.
5
Hannah
Hannah’s gameplay is far from elegant, but she seems to have some corky connections keeping her afloat.
5
Hannah
Less whispering, more listening.
6
Bret
Probably the best gameplay we have ever seen by a gay cop from Boston with a drinking problem.
6
Sunday
I cannot get a grasp on this girl's game plan.
6
Adam
Could be heading for the most intense loved one's visit since Jonny Fairplay's dead grandma lie. Stick don't steal, Adam!
7
David
David gave away his immunity idol and then minutes later led the way to go to rocks. WTF?
7
Zeke
Everyone has admitted Zeke is the biggest threat… yikes.
7
David
Might be time to start looking for painted logs and coconuts again!
8
Sunday
It only took Sunday 30 days and a black rock but she finally got Jessica out of the game.
8
Jay
Wait… does Jay have an idol?
8
Bret
Any more reward wins and Bret will be booking his spot on the next season of Dr. Phil.
9
Will
“Next time on Survivor” revealed Will making a deal with David and declaring that he is ready to start playing this game hard. I don’t think so.
9
Will
I have to keep Will last simply because we are getting down to the wire and he still has zero content.
9
Will
Better milk that air-time for all it's worth, Will.

  1. I think Will is setting up his brief Julia-esque moment in the spotlight that Edgic kept positing was Sunday’s arc.

    Either that or he goes down in a Lucy-esque blaze of glory.

    • I wouldn’t be so sure of Will leaving just yet. The title of next week’s episode doesn’t exactly correspond with that. (But the preview hinting at him flipping could, of course, be Lucy Pt. 2.)

  2. So randy, Tyson is dumb as well? It’s sure is a bet, but if you flip, it will ruin your FTC chances, not to talk about you’ll be in the minority alliance, which now hates you for flipping. It’s a big move, and if you’re afraid of big moves, don’t play survivor.

    • Randy specifically wrote that you do not go to rocks “on day 30 with ten people left.” That doesn’t correspond with Tyson’s situation at all — there were only six people left then, and the split was very clearly delineated. Furthermore, if Tyson had lost, he wouldn’t have been rocked out of the game entirely; the loser went to Redemption Island.
