The results of last week’s shocking tribal council has left the door wide open for a challenger to what has become Adam Klein‘s season-long hold on our odds to win “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.” Adam leads the odds again this week with a 27/20 chance of winning, ahead of two other millennials, Zeke Smith and Jay Starrett, both with 13/2 odds, who have bounced in and out of the top spots thanks to their uneven play week to week. 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.
Adam tops the leaderboard in this category for the seventh week in a row, mostly still on the basis of a positive “winner’s edit” episode to episode as well as having a hidden idol still in his possession that no one else knows about. His biggest challenger in recent weeks was Michaela Bradshaw, but she was voted out of the game last week in a shocking turn of events precipitated by Jay’s anxiousness over her challenge dominance. Though Jay remains one of the likeliest threats to Adam’s potential win, our faith in him is iffy at best heading in to this week’s merge episode, titled “I’m the Kingpin.”
At the merge, the Millennials have a commanding advantage in terms of numbers. If they stick together they can take out each Gen X-er week by week until only they remain, but given the volatility shown already in the voting among original tribal lines, this is unlikely to happen. Adam and Zeke have shown the best aptitude for bonding with members of the Gen X side and are likeliest to target Millennial threats. That puts Jay and his buddy Taylor Stocker in the line of fire.
But unlike Zeke, who last week was told in secret that Gen X-er David Wright has a hidden idol, Jay holds a hidden idol for himself, potentially securing him at least one more week in the game. With the right use of the idol, Jay can maneuver into a better position strategically, a caveat not lost on those readers predicting him to win.
