Previously on Power Rankings…
In Round 11, Julia finished in first place, receiving 7 points for ranking Zeke in 7th place. Randy came in second with 4 points, and Martin finished third with 3 points. Martin remains in the lead with 149 points overall, Randy follows in second with 140 points, and Julia is last with 118 points.
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. This episode is another double elimination, so points will be tallied for both boots. For example, if Adam and Sunday are voted out, Randy will receive 10 points, Martin will receive 8 points, and Julia will receive 7 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.
If a ranker wants to take a more strategic approach to their rankings they can play for…
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).

My top three this week are the only ones left that are getting what could be a winner's edit. Jay is at the top of the list due to his strength in challenges.
Making moves and melting hearts.
Most likely to win immunity. Plus he's the only person left with an idol. #NewJayRocks
Strength in challenges will get you to the end but not to the bank. David, spend your million wisely.
“Yo, sometimes I hate you, and sometimes I love you, but at this moment, I truly respect you.”
May the power of love propel you.
After two horrendous episodes, Adam finally got back on track. I believe his winner's edit right now is just to confuse the situation. Adam will get 4th place.
David’s self-awareness shines; keeping him solid.
"Why would they vote for me?" A question he'll be asking himself again at Final Tribal Council.
Hannah will be the benefactor of Adam getting 4th place and she will move into 3rd as the ultimate goat.
Ken caused some chaos – and it’s important to be cutthroat but in the same sense, stay humble.
While I think David is almost guaranteed to make the finale, he is still such a big target that there's always the possibility for a #BigMove against him.
Bret is going to need a Christmas miracle.
Hannah’s reads are on point – although she’s not the most likable of the bunch, she has a grasp of what is going on.
"(whispers) I think it's me." Not this week, Hannah.
Ken is now playing with emotion instead of with his brain and his days are numbered.
What is Sunday's story? Am I missing something?
It's getting down to the wire and Sunday's kind nature might start to be seen as a threat.
Making it on Survivor is a huge accomplishment, and you should be very proud. From one loser to another. . . looking forward to meeting you some day.
Beer pong at Ponderosa: Bret vs. everyone else on the jury; Will can be the referee.
Take that resume to Ponderosa, and you might get a job as a busboy.
Thanks to Adam playing his idol on Hannah, Will’s flipping to vote out Zeke meant nothing and his resume is still blank. The good news is that Will will not need a resume in Ponderosa.
What does your break-out episode mean? Your boot is soon to follow.
I think it might be time to hand over your badge and your gun.
