QUICK NOTE: XFINITYTV.com is the place to be for all of your bug-eatin’, back-stabbin’, “Survivor” coverage. During the season we’ll have insightful weekly Power Rankings, exit interviews, and full episode recaps. Follow me on Twitter (@gordonholmes) for up-to-the-minute updates.
The Rules: Each week our two combatants will create separate power rankings. The ranking of the person who is voted out of the next episode will determine the number of points the players will earn. For example, if Tai is voted out this episode, Shirin will receive five points and Gordon will receive one point. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Kaôh Rōng” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.
Last Week: Shirin had Debbie in spot seven, Gordon had her in spot eight. The current score is Team Shirin 82, Team Gordon 80.
Quick Note: Rankings are not based on who the player thinks is most likely to win. The smart strategy is to rank the contestants based on who is the most likely to be voted out in the next episode.
Shirin’s Score = 82

| 1. – Joe:
Debbie was a genius.
Debbie commanded respect.
When Debbie died she left no instructions,
Just a legacy to protect.
| 1. – Tai: So…did Jason and Scot give Tai their idol with their little skit at Tribal Council? It certainly looked like a legally-binding idol hand-off to me.
| 2. – Michele: The Devil’s Snare snaking its way through Dara beach is easily subdued by the Incendio charm.
|| 2. – Michele: Right now the female/Joe alliance seems to have two options; flip Tai or sacrifice someone. Flipping Tai is obvious, the other involves throwing all of your votes at the idol and living with losing whoever the guys vote for. Fortunately for Michele, that probably won’t be her.
| 3. – Aubry: If you don’t understand Aubry’s moves, maybe she should speak llama to you.
|| 3. – Joe: Hey, buddy. Hope you’re having fun out there.
| 4. – Cydney:
Cydney doesn’t hesitate
She exhibits no restraint.
She takes and she takes and she takes
Changes the game.
Plays and she raises the stakes.
And if there’s a reason
She seems to thrive when so few survive…
| 4. – Aubry: What a roller coaster poor Aubry has been on. I hope she steadies herself long enough to realize that she should actually be trying to get to end with any two of three dudes who are wrecking camp.
| 5. – Tai: “Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right.” – Albus Dumbledore
|| 5. – Jason: I do not, repeat…DO NOT think the women will be able to flip Tai. The only way Tai wins is if he goes to the end with Scot and Jason. But, Tai has done weirder things.
| 6. – Julia: Cydney and Aubry are not the ones to sit around and be played. So prove yourself to be the girl that you claim.
|| 6. – Julia: It can’t be good news that the person who was defending you last week is now out of the game.
| 7. – Jason: There are lots of Darths. All of them died.
|| 7. – Cydney: That idol needs to be flushed and the guys only have one target on their mind…
| 8. – Scot: Scot will be the first to fall when Tai remembers he’s Yoda and decides to only use his command of the force for good. #TheFallOfPalpatine
||8. – Scot: Flushing the idol is the top priority. But, if they all vote for Scot, are they sure the guys will use the idol to save a millionaire?|
