After two weeks leading our predictions to win “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X,” Ken McNickle falls to second place with 3/1 odds behind former frontrunner Adam Klein who reclaims the lead with 5/2 odds. Behind them are our other two contenders, Jay Starrett and David Wright, both with 4/1 odds. 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.
Ken may have shot himself in the foot last week when he threw Will Wahl under the bus in front of the entire tribe, essentially losing the trust of everyone. Ken’s betrayal came off more as bone-headed than disloyal though, which might be worse considering it decreases the amount of respect his potential jury members will have for him at the end.
Adam on the other hand seems to have gained the respect that he lost at the start of the merge which explains his resurgence in our odds. At the “loved ones” reward challenge, Adam told his tribe mates that he would not use his reward switch advantage to steal someone’s family time away from them. The declaration impressed Adam’s chief rival, Jay, who out of respect included Adam and his brother on the reward Jay had won.
It’s this idea of respect among your peers that may ultimately decide who wins this season and both Jay and David have also grappled with how to earn it. In trying to minimize his threat level, Jay is balancing how to not fade into the background and be carried to the end. On the other hand, while David’s personal growth has endeared him to his peers, it’s hard to tell whether they see him as a player deserving of a win.
