The Finale 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. However, the finale works a little bit differently. The rankers will rank the six finalists in order of placement, and they will gain 2 points for every correct placement.
We don’t usually include the bonus points for the finale, but Randy suggested coming up with some bonus questions so that we can all still have a chance of winning – kind of ironic that Randy would be the most stereotypically millennial out of the three us.
Each bonus question is worth 10 points:
1. Who will receive the first confessional of the episode?
2. If an idol is found, who will find it?
3. Who will win the first immunity challenge of the episode?
At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X Power Rankings Champion.
David will be able to buy lots of therapy with his $1,000,000.00 check. The editors really fooled me in Episode 1. Congratulations, David!
His story is compelling, heart-breaking and inspiring... not to mention, he's played hard; Adam would be an amazing winner.
After 39-days, David reveals that he's Keyser Soze and masterminded the entire season. The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world he was a neurotic, middle-aged, bald sitcom writer.
I have enjoyed watching Ken this season, but he just didn’t get enough or complex enough character development to win. Ken got the quintessential “runner-up” edit if I have ever seen one.
I feel like Ken could have some solid jury support (cough, cough, Jessica). But next to Adam, his story doesn't hit home the same way.
Ken drones on about integrity and authentic relationships while the jurors roll their eyes more than Ciera Eastin listening to Andrew Savage give a leadership seminar.
I’ve been saying for weeks that Hannah will reach the end and receive 0 votes. I still think she is a finalist, but I now think she gets a vote or two. Can’t wait to see her all glammed up at the reunion.
Hannah will most likely end up being the goat. However, she is arguably the most savvy goat the game has ever seen - so props to Hannah.
Hannah goes into FTC armed with a convincing argument but soon realizes she's perceived as a goat and in a panic starts talking about kittens and butts. She doesn't get any votes.
Anyone that wants to sit next to Adam at the end is an idiot. Well, a bigger idiot I mean.
I don't think this crew will let David make it to the end. He's constantly been referred to as threat which makes him a target.
Jay finally loses immunity, and the other three obviously boot him because he'd win if he makes FTC. Although, they'll probably be some fake tension with Jay trying to convince Hannah to force a tie against David.
Bret played a great game for being as gay as he is, but it has to end here. Can’t wait to have a beer with you one day soon!
At this point, I think even if Bret made it to the end, he couldn't win. He's been a fun character, but that's about it.
Jay wins immunity again, and Hannah becomes the swing vote between Jay/Adam and David/Ken. Hannah is ultimately swayed by David's endearing awkwardness and Ken's endearing abs.
If Jay makes it to the end he is a guaranteed winner. Placing Jay last among the Final 6 is my big move to win. I am betting that the producers slip in a “total luck” immunity challenge where being athletic and competitive like Jay is not an advantage.
He's an idol-less threat, with minimal allies left in the game. Unless he wins immunity, I'd say he's the next to go.
I'm thinking Jay wins immunity and David finds an idol (or fools everyone with a fake), and so the majority target Bret, realizing he has friends on the jury. Bret will deliver his final tribal question inebriated.
