Last week we saw our frontrunner to win “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X,” Adam Klein, turn his back on his Millennials allies and break up the “Figtails” showmance by ousting Jessica “Figgy” Figueroa (listen to our exit interview podcast with Figgy). With Figgy gone, her closest allies Michelle Schubert and Taylor Stocker have fresh targets on their own backs. Michelle leads our odds to be eliminated next with 7/5 odds and Taylor is right behind her with 27/10 odds. 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 out next.
In one of the biggest mistakes in “Survivor” history, last week Figgy showed too much enthusiasm when she found out that her best friend in the game, Michelle, had not been voted out. Jeff Probst noticed it quickly and called it out in front of everyone, spurring conversations on both of their tribes about the topic. For that reason, even with Figgy now gone, Michelle is the likeliest member of the Vanua tribe to go home if they lose the immunity challenge. In that tribe of four, David Wright holds all of the power — not only does he have a hidden immunity idol, but he has proven to be one of the most adaptable strategists of the season. David also has connections with both Chris Hammons and Zeke Smith, leaving Michelle the odd woman out.
Taylor is in a similar situation on the Takali tribe after Adam voted with the Gen X-ers last week instead of him. Adam is likely to stick with Ken McNickle and Jessica Lewis again this week if they go to tribal council, especially after Taylor made it clear that he’ll hold a grudge if Adam turned on them. To keep the heat off of himself, Adam will want to get Taylor out as soon as possible.
The third tribe, Ikabula, has yet to face tribal council, but if they do, we’re predicting the outnumbered Gen X-ers, Sunday Burquest and Bret LaBelle, as the likeliest to go as they both have 9/1 odds of elimination. The four Millennials of Ikabula haven’t shown any sign of turning on another any time soon.
