Readers expected that last week would be the end of the showmance between “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X” castaways Jessica “Figgy” Figueroa and Taylor Stocker, but both were safe with tribal immunity and CeCe Taylor went home instead. This week’s episode six teaser for “The Truth Works Well” shows Figgy being proudly open about her relationship to Taylor in front of her new Gen X tribemates, a sign that many believe suggests the power couple will finally be split up. Do you agree or disagree with our readers’ findings? Hurry — make your “Survivor 33” predictions for a chance to top our famous leaderboards. It’s fun and easy, so start now by predicting who will be eliminated next.
The conversation about whether or not Figgy and Taylor are putting themselves in danger with the openness of their relationship has been around the island since day one. Their tribe, however, only went to tribal council once and even then Figgy only barely escaped it alive so the threat their relationship poses hasn’t been tested very much. This week both top our “Survivor” chart in predictions to be eliminated, with Figgy taking the lead at 19/10 odds, trailed closely by Taylor with 7/2 odds.
The expectation then is that their Takali tribe will lose the three-way immunity challenge, sending the two of them as well as Ken McNickle, Adam Klein and Jessica Lewis to tribal council. Adam, Figgy and Taylor supposedly have the advantage with a majority over the two Gen X-ers, but Adam was at the bottom of a Millennials tribe controlled by Figgy and Taylor leaving him in the power position to go with either side of his new tribe. Adam has wanted the showmance split up since the beginning so it won’t be a shock to see him turn against them now.
If, however, the Takali tribe doesn’t lose immunity as many are predicting then readers are looking to the players of both original tribes that are on the outs of their new tribes. Sunday Burquest is in third place to go home with 15/2 odds because she’s the weaker of the two Gen X-ers on the six-person Ikabula tribe. Michelle Schubert is in fourth place with 14/1 odds after narrowly escaping elimination last week when her Vanua tribe decided to take out CeCe despite the Gen X-ers having a 3-to-2 advantage over both her and Zeke Smith. Zeke connected with Chris Hammons last week who spearheaded the move that saved Michelle, but if the tribe returns to council he’s expected to remain loyal to Zeke and David to knock Michelle out.
