Welcome to my power rankings of Survivor 35: Heroes v Healers v Hustlers! Every week I’ll take rank the cast to see who did well during their episode and their position going forward. Unfortunately, the premiere (usually extended) was just an hour long so most of the cast didn’t get a chance to shine. However, there’s still some good meat for a ranking. Keep in mind that this is just my opinion and your rankings may look different.
Usually, the first boot gets a little more screen time but this isn’t the case for Katrina. She was in the minority and she got voted out. Simple as that.
Talk about overplaying in the first couple of days. Now he has the right to be suspicious but doesn’t make it public. Alan said that he might look like the crazy person, so why do it in the first place? Others aren’t painting the target as much as you’re doing it yourself.
While not necessarily overplaying, Mike seems to be on the outs. The conversation between him and Joe was mishandled by him. You could have developed some trust but Joe probably left even more distrusting of Mike. The Healers tribe look strong so Mike will be around for a bit.
I have nothing to say, she wasn’t really in this episode.
She was targeted by Alan because of the supposed bond between herself and JP. Ashley didn’t do herself any favors by getting into fights. If the Heroes go to tribal, there’s a strong possibility that Ashley gets voted out.
Just like Lauren, she’s another Hustler that didn’t get a lot of screentime. Can’t say anything more.
For every hot guy, you need someone to fond over him. That’s all I can say about Ashley, she just has a crush on Cole. Now, who knows if this will become an actual showmance or just an innocent crush.
Well, we have our guy eye candy of the season (well besides Ryan). Cole is strong and bonded well with his tribe. I expect him to be at the merge.
Well, that’s definitely one way to prove you don’t have an idol. Honestly, the naked strategy is a pretty good one but unfortunately for JP, he still has Alan. If Ashley is the next one to go, JP might be in the clear.
Just by a first glance, the Healers are a strong tribe so expect to see Desi around until the eventual tribe swap. Now if they do go to tribal, Desi is in a pretty good spot. You got Mike as a potential target but then Jessica and Cole being a potential showmance could make them a target as well.
She’s in the same exact position as Desi.
Is it me or does Patrick remind me of the ginger kid from Pinnochio before he gets turned into a donkey? Just that kid, Patrick can be summed into one word, mischievous. Now Patrick isn’t in a bad spot but if his behavior gets wild to a point of annoyance, he could have a big target on his back.
Ali has some real potential to be the winner of the season. Now she doesn’t suck physically so that’s a good start. Lining up with Patrick (who yeah technically is familiar with him because they went to college together) was pretty slick. Judging from her job, Ali is going to dig deep and try to pull something off.
On the surface, Chrissy didn’t have the best episode with her throwing up at the challenge and being potentially the one to go home. Now her decision to not play the super idol is a good play. Yes, she would have saved an ally but that target becomes even bigger. Chrissy has the potential to become the swing vote between JP/Ashley and Ben/Alan at the next Tribal.
Just from the first episode, it looks like Devin/Ryan may have formed a JT/Stephen like bond. It’s always good when someone tells you a secret so they can earn your trust. Also, Devin looks strong so he’ll be good during the tribe section of the game and if his bond with Ryan sticks then expect him to go far.
Joe is sort of a puzzle to me because (for obvious reasons) he reminds me of Tony. While Tony is an erratic player, he’s still a really good one. Not sure if Joe is trying to mimic this but he does have some attributes down. Now his conversation with Mike is why he’s high on the list. Joe had the three c’s: cool, calm, and collected. If Joe can stay in the majority then he’ll be good for awhile.
What a great night for Ryan! He found the super idol, build some good trust with Devon and had the right instinct when giving the super idol to Chrissy. My only concern is he might the first one out of the Hustlers because he appears weak. Judging from the premiere, Ryan has a lot of game in him.
By far the most level-headed member of the Heroes tribe. This guy was so smooth that he’s practically silky coconut oil. I mention that Chrissy might be the swing vote if the Heroes go to the next tribal but that can also be Ben as well. Even if he’s not, Ben is still in a great spot and has huge winner upside.
