Survivor San Juan del Sur Power Rankings: Catharsis to the Rice Crisis

In a shocking tribal council, one of our bets to go far, Kelley, was voted out because of the feud between Missy and Dale that stemmed from the rice. This is a classic example of a loved one paying for the other’s sins.

So what does this mean for Papa Wentworth? Can he turn things around? Hopefully, with a fake hidden immunity idol, he can.

Let’s see how the remaining players rank based on the hours we spent analyzing the events of Survivor: San Juan del Sur.

Basically, the PDA king and queen could share the number one spot. They're in the middle of the New Coyopa and earned a great spot in their tribe. The only difference is that Jaclyn is not as threatening than Jon in terms of challenges so Jaclyn has a little bit of an edge.

Surprisingly, Keith finds his way at the top of my rankings just because he made the best move in the last episode: stay in the middle and let others eat each other. He was in a tough spot several days ago but the switch helped him. While he's initially in danger because he's the sole single player in a tribe of couples, he managed to to take advantage of the feud between Dale and Missy and stay out of the crosshairs.

I do believe that Jon is a little ahead of Jaclyn in the strategy department, but the fact that the merge is fast approaching, I can see him having more target in his back compared to his girlfriend. Still, he's on a great spot and is probably safe next episode.

It's still quite unclear why he didn't get rid of Baylor, which is more likely to flip, but that doesn't matter. He was next to go at Hunahpu and being reunited with Jaclyn just upped his chances in the game. They're in the power position. He just needs to make sure Missy and Keith stays loyal to him.

If Jon and Jaclyn are the swing votes in the new Coyopa, Alec is the one in the new Hunahpu. Alec will be the deciding vote once this new tribe loses Immunity, unless he gets too complacent. If he does, he'll join the likes of Christy, Dolly and last season's Sarah. You know what I mean.

Jaclyn has done really well in the game. For her individual game, I think keeping Baylor close is good because she's the enemy she knows better. And people are more likely to gun for Baylor before they target her. I think it'd be best if she and Jon team up with Missy and Baylor so they can get into the merge with a strong four. And then, maybe, get Keith and Wes.

It ended up being advantageous that Keith is the odd man out without a loved one in the new Coyopa. Great thing is that Wes could be in a great position in the new Hunahpu too. Plus, he has the idol. Wes and Keith might be the last duo standing if they get lucky with their positions in the game.

She seemed like a bitch at the last episode but her strategy worked. She saved her daughter and stayed alive. I think she needs to solidify her alliance with Jon and Jaclyn at Coyopa so she can make it to the merge. Once there, she can re-align with Natalie and Jeremy or stick with Jon and Jaclyn. She's safe no matter what.



Last week: 1st
This week: 5th

Natalie is one of the aggressive strategic gameplayers in her new tribe and I like to think that she'll get what she wants in case her tribe loses next round. If not, then she could be in trouble.

His position in the game is quite tricky. He's supposed to be in a good spot because he has three allies. But the circumstances have put him in a threatening position. Should Alec side with the other singles, I'm sure his name will be thrown under the bus first. But if Alec doesn't, then good for him.

This week: 6th

Jeremy talks to Natalie about the game and has intelligent inputs about his tribe's dynamics. He's the kingpin in the original Hunahpu, I can see him maintaining that title if he plays his cards right and from the last episode, we've seen him playing them right.

I feel that Natalie is doing her best to strategize without annoying people, and it's working okay so far. Though it's still unclear whether she's in a safe spot, what's important is that no one's looking at her.

This week: 7th
Missy made an enemy in Dale, but she ended up being on the right side of the game in her tribe. Plus, if ever Dale turns the table on them, Baylor would be the target but there's still a possibility that Dale shifts his target to this mother.

I want to see more of Julie. She hasn't as much air time as the others, so it's hard to assess what her strategy is. I'm a little concerned that she becomes an easy vote in Hunahpu because she's the only single player without a solid alliance. But I got a feeling that she's going to be a key player in someone's alliance. I just hope it's the right alliance.

Kinda invisible last round and I'm afraid she could be an easy target for her new tribe if Alec chooses to side with his old pals.

Jeremy is in a tough position right now because Reed can easily tell Josh that they're on the opposite sides and the former Coyopa can rally for his elimination. So he needs to work faster in getting Alec on his side. And make sure Hunahpu wins immunity all the time.



Last week: 10th
This week: 9th

Outnumbered in his new tribe but he's smart enough to lay low a bit. Could be in trouble.

Last week: 11th

Wes and Alec can go either way, which means they should be safe.

Throughout the season, I don't know if Baylor will be able to improve her spot. She's always on the chopping block. Good thing is luck is on her side. She's strategic too but what can you do if you have the lives of a cat?

Last week: 10th
This week: 10th
It's kinda hard to see which side Alec is better off. Honestly, I think he's going to be used as a pawn and there's no way he can make it close to the final stages of the game. Right now, I think his wise move is to stick with the other single players. But we can't really be sure if he knows what wise moves to make, can we?



Last week: 7th

Tribal shuffles will either improve your game or mess up your game. Josh is in a hot pickle right now with his new tribe for being an old member of Coyopa and having a loved one in a tribe full of singles. But I trust Josh to be maneuver his way in this game and I can see him doing it but in the meantime, he's in danger.

Last week: 8th
This week: 11th
It's starting to get really scary how Reed's edit is close to a ghost. Earlier seasons' first boots had way more airtime than him. I'm starting to believe that he's going to quit. Or get snatched by a wild animal and no one noticed.



Last week: 12th
This week: 12th
He's always been a negotiator for his tribe and in the coming episode, I'm afraid that Jeff will have to ask the new Hunahpu to sacrifice one of them and since Reed and Josh are the only couple in it, I think it would probably be smart for them to give way for the other and I think Reed will quit for rice and for Josh. Uh-oh. Although this is just pure speculation.

Last week: 12th

She's got so much votes already it'd be downright depressing to not see her name get written at this week's tribal council. I think Baylor is totally unaware of how she comes across others, which is why she continues to act that way. Or she wants to be Phillip Sheppard 2.0.



Last week: 13th

He lost his daughter last episode and is definitely on the chopping block next round. I know he's got the fake idol but I don't think he'll be able to sway Jon to follow his lead. Possible but unlikely. Plus, I'm a Missy-Baylor shipper so this is also a wishful thinking. Heh.
Last week: 14th
This week: 13th
It's sad that Dale has been in the bottom for two weeks now. Dale failed at a critical component of the game: keeping his mouth shut. Had he not raised the issue about the rice, I don't think he or Kelley would be in trouble. I just hope he does right in using the fake idol to get Jon on his side.
