We have been predicting Adam as the winner every week since the season began, but in the last two weeks his game has faltered. Not only has he been the focal point of most of the turmoil at camp, but the trust his closest allies, Zeke Smith and Hannah Shapiro, had in him continues to waver. Without the support of the remaining millennials, Adam’s power in the game has been significantly reduced, despite him having two advantages (the reward steal and a hidden immunity idol).

As Adam’s fortunes drop, Ken’s rise. After a shaky start at the bottom of the Gen X tribe, along with David Wright, Ken has rebounded by building close a close tie with Jessica Lewis and standing back while other players step up to the chopping block. This week’s double episode will be the first glimpse we get into whether or not Ken and Jessica can gain the upper hand over their fellow Gen X-ers. That alliance is bound to fracture this week and who comes out on top will determine who has the easiest road to the finals.

That road could be seized by Zeke and David who have been largely portrayed as second in command to our frontrunners, Adam and Ken. As our third (David with 4/1 odds) and fourth (Zeke with 10/1 odds) picks as likely winners, this budding two-person alliance is waiting in the wings to assume the power position. David has a hidden immunity idol of his own that he and Zeke can use to gain the upperhand — the tricky part is knowing whether to use it offensively or wait until you need it to play defensively.
