Survivor Cambodia Power Rankings–Week 11


For the 31st season of Cambodia we will be once again bringing you our weekly POWER RANKINGS as Ben & Noah are joined by Ozlets Colin & Jarrod to rank the contestants each week based on performance and strategy and where they are perceived to be in the game! We continue our rankings for another week with our episode 12 rankings, which we are sure will cause speculation and debate as we get closer to next weeks episode!


Each week Ben, Noah, Colin & Jarrod will rank the remaining contestants based on their opinion of where they stand in the game, with the four totals being tallied to produce a total score . The lowest total score will be ranked at the top, with the second lowest in second, third lowest in third and so on and so forth. Each week the overall list will be published, separated into two tribes. It will combine into one list once the tribes merge (or two/three should there be a tribe dissolve).


Once again during Cambodia we will be scoring who gets the closest each week with the POWER RANKINGS LEADERBOARD! The ranker who gets their ranking for the previous weeks eliminated contestant will score a point. If they predict the exact finishing position then they will score 2 points. If there are two or more rankers on the same prediction/number, they will both get the said points amount. Here is the leaderboard after this weeks episode:

1st Colin Hilding 9 (+2)
2nd Jarrod Loobeek 7 (+2)
3rd Ben Waterworth 6 (+2)
4th Noah Groves 5


1st – Tasha


OVERALL: 1st (+3)

BEN: “A ballsy move to tell Spencer and Jeremy about the all-girls alliance and she keeps herself available on two different sides of alliances. Next vote will decide the game as we’re down to 7 and that’s always a big one. Will Tasha stick with the girls or bring Keith in to stay with Jeremy and Spencer? I can see her probably sticking with Jeremy and Spencer but losing out on Keith who I can see siding more so with the girls. Watch this space.”

NOAH: “It will take some idol plays or immunity wins for Tasha to go home next surely? If she doesn’t screw up then she is literally in the best position to make it to the final four. She has more options than anyone left in the game. She can go with the potential women’s alliance which if everything went right then she would be in the final four with Kimmi, Kelley and Abi. On the other hand she could stick with what she has and go to the final four with Jeremy, Spencer and Keith/Kimmi. While she has been much more loyal to Jeremy/Spencer, I do think she has a much stronger chance of winning with the women. Tasha isn’t a front runner to win this season but I also wouldn’t completely rule her out at this point. I will be very blindsided if she is voted out next week.”

COLIN: “I don’t think Tasha could have hoped for a better spot to be in. She was the swing vote this week, had the biggest threat go home and didn’t even need to openly pick a side. That means she still has another 3 days to decide on whom to side with, and that gets her another 3 days closer to the end. 6 days if you really think about it, as there’s no way she goes home next week.”

JARROD: “A solid week for Tasha as she’s seen solidifying a final 3 with Spencer and Jeremy and having another option with an all girls’ alliance in the offering. She made a point of telling Jeremy and Spencer about the girls’ alliance but was still able to get them to take out Joe. It looks like she’s in the crucial position for the next couple of votes and could swing either way.”

2nd – Kelley


OVERALL: 2nd (+1)

BEN: “I held off putting her number one last week but have to do it this week. She has herself in a super strong position right now and if the all girls alliance works out then she is in the box seat to win. She has held on this entire game, survived countless moves against her and always remained in favour after a vote for the most part. And she hasn’t made any moves that would see her having people being bitter against her. She was my pre-season tip to win and as of right now this is the most confident I have ever been that my pre-season tip could actually win. I’m getting nervous…”

NOAH: “Kelley has received a strong edit, has won a couple of challenges and has a hidden immunity idol but her options are certainly limited compared to some people. She has Abi and perhaps now Kimmi on her side with the potential of working with Keith and Tasha. However it is unlikely she will work with Spencer and Jeremy and now the numbers are going down she will become a bigger threat. Her idol, if played right should get her through to at least final six or five. Kelley can certainly win this game but it will be a tough road ahead if the women’s alliance isn’t strong.”

COLIN: “Up until now Wentworth has been a player making moves on the outside, and most of them not working. It’s so hard to tell if she gained the upper hand this week, as both sides wanted Joe gone. It all comes down to who Tasha is really siding with. Based on previous associations in the game I would lead towards Jeremy. Wentworth has an idol that could get her to the end, but I consider her a longshot to win the votes.”

JARROD: If the girls stick together Kelley is in a great position in the game. It’s a good sign that there didn’t seem to be a whole lot of backlash based on her reward challenge picks although that definitely seemed to bring Jeremy, Spencer and Tasha closer together. Still has options moving forward and has the idol if anything feels fishy.”

3rd – Jeremy


OVERALL: 3rd (-1)

BEN: “This is the lowest I’ve had Jeremy since week 2 when I also had him at fourth, such has been his dominance and stranglehold on this game. I’ve put him ahead of Tasha because he has an idol in his back pocket and I can see him still being able to switch things up as the game progresses. His name still doesn’t get mentioned as a target and I feel they’ll come after Spencer before they come after him. So making top 5 should be easy for Jeremy at this stage.”

NOAH: “If Jeremy can stick with Spencer and Tasha then he could take it all the way and win but others have been hesitant of sitting next him in the finals. If Tasha stays true to her word then he should be good through the final five and maybe even four if he can hold off using his idol for that long. If they women take charge he could save himself for a week but could be at the end of his game. Unfortunately he isn’t the strongest challenge competitor so he will have to rely on his strategic, social and idol abilities to propel himself. Not telling anyone about his unborn baby is a good strategy as that will only put more of a target on his back. To summarize, if Jeremy makes it to the end he probably wins but the challenge is making it there in the first place.”

COLIN: “Maybe he lost Tasha as an ally this week and maybe he didn’t. This was a week where Joe was gone regardless. My gut instinct is that Tasha will stick with Jeremy to the end, but there is that doubt. The fact still remains that Jeremy has an idol and a better game on paper than anyone else out there. Still the best bet on a winner if he makes it to the end. If he makes it that is.”

JARROD: “Jeremy has definitely lost one of his shields in Joe but it felt like the right time to cut him loose. Once again he got plenty of emotional content surrounding Val’s visit and he’s definitely been given arguably the biggest edit this season. Stands a much better chance at immunity with Joe out of the way and he has his idol if the all girl alliance comes to fruition.”

4th – Kimmi


OVERALL: 4th (+2)

BEN: “My girl Kimmi showed game this week with strategy and that just made me super happy. If the all girls alliance stays true I for sure see her making it to the end with Kelley and Abi and I see her snagging a couple of votes to snare the runner-up spot. I still don’t think she can win, but who knows. Stranger things have happened. I just want to keep seeing more of her on my screen each week and keep up the “Australian Outback returnee always makes it to the final 4” statistic.”

NOAH: “Props has to be given to Kimmi for initiating a brand new alliance which could be taken all the way to the end. I have maintained that Kimmi has been a strong player this season and had she received a larger edit then she could be a competitor to win. Kimmi has the women’s alliance but could still stick with Jeremy who she has been with since day one. Kimmi could definitely make it to the end at this point but it is unlikely that she will win. That being said she has a much stronger chance against Kelley, Abi and Tasha than Jeremy and Spencer. As I say every week…SHOW US MORE KIMMI!”

COLIN: “Kimmi showed a bit of her game this week! She tried to make a move too! The big problem is that the move proved that there is clearly no real loyalty between her and Jeremy. This is frustrating as I’ve personally spent weeks assuming she had at least one ally, and that’s obviously not the case.”

JARROD: “Kimmi stepped out of the shadows this past episode by proposing the all female alliance which connects her to almost every player left in the game. It’ll be interesting to see if she plans on sticking with the girls who she called witches just a couple of episodes ago or if the allure of Bayon strong will win her back over. It’s good to see her thinking of her end game and it’d be great to see her pull off a big move.”

5th – Spencer


OVERALL: 5th (-4)

BEN: ”Putting a big prediction on this right now and saying Spencer is going home next week. Be it through the power of the girls staying together or Keith switching sides. Let’s just make it a “Ben Bold Prediction” or a “BBP”. You can be the first to call me an idiot next week but I’m making it right now.”

NOAH: “Spencer’s time in the game could be running out. After voting out Stephen he has jumped straight back to Jeremy trying to set up a final three with Jeremy and Tasha which could be a tough fight for him to win. If the women’s alliance goes ahead then he could be the first one out due to him not having an idol like Jeremy. Spencer still has a shot and he is probably the strongest challenge competitor after Keith but he certainly doesn’t have a clear path to the end.”

COLIN: “I should say that I consider it more likely that Spencer could win than Wentworth, but she has an idol and he has nothing, including unconditional trust in Jeremy, who does have an idol, and stated before that he would have played it on Spencer if needed. Even though they are working together now I feel the possibility of an idol play on Spencer is unlikely now. He has the game resume to win, but not necessarily the protection to get him there.”

JARROD: “Spencer still has plenty of ties moving forward but he could be in danger if the all female alliance finds its footing. I question whether Spencer’s storyline has run its course now that he’s fulfilled his quest to become more emotionally connected after saying I love you to his girlfriend this past week. Luckily he’s close with Tasha and Wentworth so both may try to deflect the vote off of him if a male becomes the target at the next tribal council.”

6th – Abi-Maria


OVERALL: 6th (+4)

BEN: “Can I just say how much I love Abi? She is TV gold and always brings entertainment each week. And her mother is one of the greatest loved ones ever to appear on Survivor. The sad thing is she has absolutely no shot at winning this game. None. And given I have money riding on her I am fine with that because at the moment she looks like the easiest person to take to the end based on her getting no votes which means I’m guaranteed to pocket some extra cash this time for Christmas. Thinking a bit selfish I know, but hey I’m allowed to every now and then!”

NOAH: “Despite being this season’s biggest goat, Abi is still being targeted week to week at tribal council. If the all-women’s alliance prevails then Abi is a lock for the finals. If the other alliance does then Kelley will probably be targeted over her at this point which could help her get to at least the final five or so. Abi won’t win this game and at this point isn’t even a lock for the finals.”

COLIN: “Getting rid of Abi would have been the dumbest move in the history of the game. Joe deserved to go home if he thought pitching a guaranteed win against a goat was a BAD thing. Everyone wants to sit next to Abi at the end, but of every person left in the game she is the only one with no chance of winning. I have trouble picturing Ciera or Wentworth voting for her in the finals.”

JARROD: “Back to back weeks with plenty of Abi content could be the beginning of the end. Is she perhaps too much of a goat to keep around or is the prospect of sitting next to her in the end irresistible? Her main ally is Wentworth at this point in time but I don’t see Kelley trying overly hard to protect her.”

7th – Keith


OVERALL: 7th (-2)

BEN: “He is in interesting position because nobody is targeting him but he is also not really there to be considered a winner. Targets are still there to be taken out and I don’t see Keith as a threat people are too concerned about, but he also is winning challenges and being strong which could be seen as a threat. I see him more of a swing vote that will help decide the next vote and from there? I don’t really know. Glad we at least are getting screentime from him though.”

NOAH: “Keith has been flip flopping all over the place this season but thanks to his phenomenal social game, he has managed to fly under the radar. He was the hero who would go up against Joe in immunity challenges before but now Keith’s own meat shield is gone, he may be targeted as a challenge threat. Luckily he does have the capability to win challenges and save himself and still has options to side with pretty much everyone in the game. Keith probably won’t win but he has a decent shot of making the end.”

COLIN: “Even when it looked like the votes could have been split 4 vs 4 Keith was still left out of the loop! It’s clear now nobody needs or values Keith in the game. Even clearer is that Keith still has no idea what he is doing out there.”

JARROD: “Of everybody left I feel that Keith lost the most from Joe going home. The two were obviously a lot closer than was shown on screen and it made sense to keep Keith around to challenge Joe for immunity. With Joe gone, Keith could very well be seen as an immunity threat and he hasn’t been shown to be either of the two main alliances right now. If his vote for Tasha is anything to go by, Keith is quickly running out of viable options in the game.”

3 Comments on Survivor Cambodia Power Rankings–Week 11

  1. I think any other season, Kimmi would be getting a potential winners-edit. Unfortunately, this is an all-stars season with incredibly strong players that unfortunately have overshadowed Kimmi’s social game and strategic moves that gives her a strong resume.

  2. Can I just say that I think Tasha has screwed up her game. Based on how things are looking, she will side with Jeremy and spencer and if she does that then she loses no matter what because there is no way in hell that she can beat Jeremy or Spencer. Why would you tell them about the girls alliance!!!!!!! Girls alliances are so exciting because they’re unexpected but there’s always that one person who screws it up and right now it’s TASHA!!! Props to Kimmi for stepping up this episode cuz I am pleasantly surprised at how she was able to start takin control.

  3. I also think that Tasha made a mistake by outing girls alliance to Jeremy and Spencer.
