After a small hiatus during some lacklustre episodes we find ourselves at a finale with 6 still in the game! Cirie and Aubry are the only players without an idol or advantage, that will be tough to circumvent. Craig, Phoebe and I take a look at the Survivor landscape before the FINALE… Enjoy!
Evo’s Final 3 – Sarah, Culpepper and Troyzan. Been on this since Episode 3. Edit is screaming this. Of late we have seen Sarah as a strategist and Culpepper as a fighter who is losing love from his fellow contestants. Troyzan is the GOAT.
Cirie – I love Cirie. Her balance beam HERO moment was amazing. I would be ecstatic to see her win, but there’s is more chance of Probst wearing a mankini to the final tribal than her winning. Biggest threat to win from a social and emotional stand point.
Aubry – Edit hasn’t been great. Always on the outs with the vote, can’t see her getting to the end, might be an easy out when everyone is stressing about just getting to that final 4 spot. She also doesn’t have an idol or advantage.
Tai – Secretly hope he goes full buddha mode and wins every immunity from here on out…. but… I can see him making an emotional mistake. Brad has threatened in confessionals to ditch him when needed. Ominous. Two idols guarantees this beautiful human a top 4 spot… unless he gets a bit freaky with his idol plays.
Troyzan – Has done well to lay low, having said that what has he really offered? Can’t win, no combination results in him taking it out.
Culpepper – Dominated the pre-merge, since then has been a target for all. This can work in his favour but the edit suggest’s he is rubbing people up the wrong way. Alpha males winning Survivor… doesn’t happen often. Nice growth throughout, he will WWMD his way to a runner up spot.
Sarah – Well well well, here we are. Don’t think it has been an amazing effort and for the life of me I can’t believe she hasn’t been ousted due to her plays so far… however, the legacy advantage means she is safe until the 5. The edit has been screaming to us her win. Crying over the Zeke/Varner blow up. Spotting advantages others couldn’t see. Outsmarting Cirie for Probst sake! Who does that? Criminal not Cop line. Will be staggered if she doesn’t win purely on edit.
LAST THING – A season that deserves an amazing finale. Oh how I wish Tony and Sandra stuck together, could easily be sitting at the end together right now. Culpepper and Sarah have shown the most growth since previous seasons, that’s why I believe that’s our top 2.
Can I just say, I am loving one of the biggest Game Changers this season – TRIBAL! The scrambling and whispering, STANDING UP AND MOVING, it’s how a tribal should be and I am so happy it now looks like it will become another evolution of the game.
2nd, in her 4 seasons Cirie has never slipped up before, and it was “Not reading the fine print” Why didn’t she? UM BECAUSE she was too busy setting up some amazing moves. Still think she screwed up? Ok, because after all that to still walk away with no votes against her…………..MMMhmmmmm
Why did Sarah take out Michaela? Well most likely to take out Ciries right hand woman and “Force” her move of taking her to the end (if Sarah knew) and also saving Tai and remaining in his good books.
What is with Cirie’s random votes? She sets up the vote, and then doesn’t vote with her voting bloc. It seems to work as she never manages to get a vote and ever really seems to have the target on her. Is that the plan? To look as if you don’t know what is going on? Or simply to not be viewed as voting out the jury?
I know that EVO disagrees with me on this as his Final 3 are Troyzan, Culpepper and Sarah, due to his foreseen edit predictions form EP 3 onwards. But I disagree. Never trust the edit, and this season the edit has been TOO obvious, so in my opinion they are setting it up so the audience believe they know what is going on and then deliver some season final SHOCKERS. Imaging the uproar when Culpepper and Sarah are taken out at 5th and 4th. I still believe that Sarah is taken out due to her extensive resume, however, with Ciries confessional last season that the Jury would be bitter towards her makes me pause.
Craig’s Final 3 – Tai, Cirie and Aubry. Don’t ask me the mathematics. But that’s what I think. Maybe it’s my little go against the grain of the majority hahahahahaahahhhah
Troyzan – NO. weather he makes the end or not, there will be nothing for him but his own ability to state he can make 39 days……..somehow
Tai – With 2 idols under his belt, you can say that he should slip into the final 4 without worry. But I am unsure what his social moves have been to allow him the votes at the end to take the game.
Aubry – A constant player at the bottom, not really pissed off the Jury, can simply state she had no choice being on the bottom. Contender? Maybe. Could be a 2 time runner up.
Culpepper – Ok I admit he has the potential. People on the jury that would vote for him. It comes down to brads final speech in my books. He has a resume at simply dodging the vote when he has been a target for a long time. I believe it would work in Brads favour to allow Troyzan to be voted out without a hand in it as this would allow Troyzan to vote for him to win.
Sarah – Has played a brilliant game for a viewer perspective, and also as a player. However I do sit here and think of the other player’s perception on her. Are they going to reward a Game Changer? Or be bitter over her moves? Did we see some foreshadow with this last episode from Andrea stating “there are people here that be your best friend all day and then vote you out” I think it comes down to her speech and convincing the “Bad Taste” jurors to change there mind.
Cirie – What can I say! Final 6 and still not ONE vote against her, never won anything, started playing like a machine from the merge. One mistake was not reading the fine print, however, the outcome made Sarah look even more like a selfish little bitch compared to Cirie, who ended up looking amaze due to still not receiving a vote. I hope hope hope she makes the final 3. I ould LUV to see her final Speech to the Jury. I have my fingers crossed and believe she deserves it.
LAST THING – Question, ummm GAME CHANGERS. Does anyone think there will be one more random GAME CHANGE from Jeff in the last few days? Such as Final 4 face the Jury or a Final 2 not a final 3?
