Last week’s MVP award goes to Ken McNickle after he successfully spearheaded the blindside of Gen X tribe leader Paul Wachter, a move that catapults Ken to second place in our updated odds to win “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.” With 10/3 odds to win, Ken is just behind Millennial Adam Klein who leads the chart with 7/5 odds for the third week in a row. Do you agree or disagree with our readers’ findings heading in to this week’s fourth episode, “Who’s the Sucker at the Table”? 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.
Ken and his closest ally David Wright, now ranked fifth to win with 18/1 odds, are believed to be the new leaders of a Gen X tribe that flipped the script last week, but I’m not sure their position is as solid as our odds suggest. Paul’s biggest mistake last week was sticking his foot in his mouth to the women in his alliance of six. When asked if the three men were positioning themselves above the three women, Paul told Jessica Lewis, Sunday Burquest and Lucy Huang that if the other two were that he’d wish the women good luck. This set off a quick decision on the part of the women to oust Paul and gain the upper-hand on the men. Realistically, it makes sense for Jessica to lead the women back to the other men, Bret LaBelle and Chris Hammons, who they need for strength in challenges and keep their position of power over Ken, David and tribe outsider CeCe Taylor. We’ll see how that plays out this week after the upcoming teaser shows a heated argument between Lucy and CeCe.
At the Millennials tribe we have yet to see how the fallout of Mari’s blindside over Jessica “Figgy” Figueroa two weeks ago will settle, but according to odds our readers have kept their faith in Adam and his pal Zeke Smith who fell on the losing side of that vote. Zeke is ranked fourth to win with 12/1 odds, just behind third-placer Michaela Bradshaw with 9/1 odds. Michaela is in the middle of that tribe after siding with her enemy Figgy to take out Mari, but last week was shown to be debating on whether or not she will flip back again to go against the power couple alliance. In order for current projections to hold ground, Michaela will have to side with Adam and Zeke, otherwise their fate may be sealed with one of the two going home soon rather than heading toward a season win.
