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 two points. 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: Gordon and Shirin both had Scot in spot eight. The current score is Team Shirin 90, Team Gordon 88.
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 = 90

| 1. – Joe: Like “Survivor” winner Jeremy, he has his meat shield alliance in Aubry and Cydney.
|| 1. – Joe: Getting a real Dan-Lembo-without-the-Tribal-meltdown vibe off of Joe.
| 2. – Michele: You’ve got an Erumpent Horn on your hands, not a Crumple-Horned Snorkack. Ditch it before it explodes and destroys your home.
|| 2. – Tai: Boy, that move last week was very entertaining. I just wish it made sense for Tai’s game. His only path to the million involved sitting with Scot. Now Scot’s gone.
| 3. – Cydney: Jason may have an anus air freshener, but Cydney can smell the real traitor-ass.
|| 3. – Michele: Wondering what Michele’s speech would be at a final Tribal Council. Maybe Julia or Anna can give it for her.
|4. – Aubry: It turns out you can cause chaos just by treating your fellow players with respect and kindness.|| 4. – Aubry: Wow, she sure pulled a rabbit out of her hat last week. And in doing so, she might become this season’s only truly satisfying winner. Manatee power!
| 5. – Tai: Everybody wants what Tai has. And they’ll pay the iron price for it.
|| 5. – Cydney: Why Scot? Because there’s a grudge between the former Brawns? I’d be doing everything in my power to get to the end with Scot and Jason. Wondering if that move was short-sighted.
| 6. – Jason: Embracing the suck. Then. Now. Forever. #DontYouDareBeSour
|| 6. – Julia: What were you doing last week when you told Tai to play his idol? Did you know he was safe but wanted him to burn it? Either way, Aubry is on to her and smartly wants her gone. This week she might get her wish.
| 7. – Julia: This is your final warning.
You know I give you life.
If you try this ish again
you gon lose your wife.
| 7. – Jason: Losing your closest buddy is bad, but watching him take that long, lonely walk with your idol is way worse. Now, while I think taking Jason to the end is a smart move, I still think they’ll want him to pay for his tribe-wrecking sins.
