After last week’s “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X” merge, a line was drawn in the sand, leaving Millennials Taylor Stocker, Will Wahl and Jay Starrett the remaining members of a minority alliance that said goodbye to Michelle Schubert. With nine castaways on the other side of the line, we predict that this week one of the three guys will be the next jury member. 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.
Based on last week’s episode, it’s clear that the majority alliance — a two-headed snake with Ken McNickle and Zeke Smith jockeying to be the group’s decision-maker — sees Jay as the biggest threat among the three guys. They suspect that Jay has a hidden immunity idol (he does) and is likely to use it which, for now, suggests he’s safe from being the target. Instead the group is likely to go after one of the other two.
Taylor leads our chart as the most likely to be eliminated with 5/6 odds. Though Will won the first individual immunity challenge last week, Taylor is the long-term physical threat and has proven to be a more able strategist than Will. With only 9/1 odds to go home, Will is mostly viewed as a vote in Jay’s pocket which, while it is dangerous to give Jay that much power, is more of a known threat compared to Taylor’s unpredictability.
There are, of course, two scenarios that may see a player other than one of the three guys go home. The first is if the majority voting block decides to turn on itself and vote out one of the nine. In that situation, predictors are thinking Bret LaBelle may be the target — he’s in fourth place on the chart with 14/1 odds of being eliminated. A move against Bret would likely be Zeke’s power grab to lessen Ken’s power within the group.
The second scenario is Jay using his hidden idol to nullify votes against the minority and choose who goes home instead. Given last week’s vote, his likely target will be Adam Klein, who comes in fifth place on our chart to go home with 22/1 odds. Adam was vocal about wanting Jay to go home last week, so Jay will be looking to make a preemptive strike against him instead.
