After narrowly escaping a medevac situation last week, Paul Wachter remains in danger as readers predict him as the most likely to be eliminated in the upcoming episode of “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.” With 6/5 odds of elimination, Paul leads all other Gen X-ers on our elimination chart. Over on the Millennials tribe, Jessica “Figgy” Figueroa has 11/2 odds of going home despite being saved by her teammates at the last tribal council. Do you agree or disagree with our readers’ findings? Hurry — make your “Survivor” predictions for a chance to top our famous leaderboards. It’s fun and easy, so start now by predicting who will be voted out next.
When the Millennials tribe went to tribal council last week all signs pointed to Figgy as a likely elimination. Her showmance with Taylor Stocker was the main point of discussion among the younger players and the target on each of their backs couldn’t be bigger. That threat remains however after Michelle Schubert and Jay Starrett worked their magic to sway a majority of their tribe to oust Mari Takahashi instead. My guess is that most voters there realized that Figgy will remain a huge target in the coming weeks and can be taken out easily in the future and it would seem our readers agree.
As for the Gen X tribe, after Ken McNickle connected with outsider CeCe Taylor (who’s in second place to be ousted with 5/1 odds) and vowed to join forces to take out Paul, Ken then bonded with David Wright, finder of the hidden immunity idol, creating what is likely to become a powerful force aimed at eliminated Paul. For that reason readers find Paul to be the most in danger this week and, frankly, I’m keen on the move. Paul is the clear leader of a dominant alliance among the older tribe and removing him will shift the dynamics of the Gen X-ers considerably, hopefully creating another early blindside at tribal council.
