After four episodes (and one tribe switch), bellhop Ryan Ulrich and celebrity assistant Ali Elliott currently have the best odds to win “Survivor” 35. According to Gold Derby’s exclusive predictions, Ryan leads the pack with 13/10 odds, while Ali comes in second place with odds of 8/1. Both players originally started out on the Hustlers tribe, but after this week’s mix-up Ryan and Ali are now on the new Soko tribe along with JP Hilsabeck, Chrissy Hofbeck and Roark Luskin.
Ryan, a 23-year-old bellhop from North Arlington, New Jersey, has led our predictions for who will win “Survivor: Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers” for the past three weeks now. Fans were impressed with his savvy game play on the original Hustlers tribe, including his alliance with Devon Pinto. Ryan may have been separated from Devon after the tribe swap, but he still has Ali, a 24-year-old celeb assistant from Los Angeles, California, in his back pocket. New ally Chrissy may also be someone they can use going forward, since Ryan gave her a secret advantage back in the Season 35 premiere.
If the Soko tribe ends up going to tribal council, Ryan and Ali look to be in a somewhat safe position. They could potentially pull Chrissy over to their team to give them a numbers advantage of three against two. Or, if Chrissy isn’t willing to turn on JP, perhaps the two pairs could link up and eliminate Roark, the odd woman out. Either way, don’t expect Ryan or Ali to turn on each other since the strong bond they created back at the Hustlers camp could take them far in the game.
Following the shocking elimination of Alan Ball in Season 35, Episode 4, here is the current layout of the three “Survivor” tribes. Who do YOU think will win?
Soko Tribe (yellow): Ryan Ulrich, Ali Elliott, JP Hilsabeck, Chrissy Hofbeck and Roark Luskin.
Yawa Tribe (red): Ben Driebergen, Jessica Johnston, Cole Medders, Lauren Rimmer and Mike Zahalsky.
Levu Tribe (blue): Joe Mena, Ashley Nolan, Devon Pinto and Desi Williams.
