Survivor: South Pacific Episode 4 Power Rankings

Reunited for one night

16. Stacey (Last week: 14)
15. Christine (Last week: 16)

I have to admit to being impressed with both Christine and Stacey this week. Stacey's recognition that her best way of not being voted out was to make somebody else the target was smart; her choosing of Brandon to feed bad information to was genius.

Christine has turned out to be a great competitor in these duels. I don't know that she'll be able to keep it up, but she has proved to be better in them than I thought.

In a bit of a predicament

14. Brandon (Last week: 15)

I feel bad for Brandon. The more we learn about him, the more it becomes obvious that he should have never played the game in the first place. He obviously has issues that he needs to work through, some of which specifically come from his uncle's appearances on Survivor. I'm sure that at the time it seemed like a good idea for him to play, and he was caught up in the Russell fever. But as the time goes on it is more difficult for him to play, and for us as viewers to continue to watch. For everybody's well being, it's probably best if he gets voted out soon.

13. Dawn (Last week: 13)
12. John (Last week: 12)

They are showing signs of friskiness, having some sort of working agreement with Jim. But I fear it is too little, too late. Congrats to Dawn for winning the immunity challenge though; there is a chance that she has moved ahead of Cochran in the pecking order.

Everybody else

11. Edna (Last week: 11)
10. Coach (Last week: 10)

Just when you thought the old Coach was gone, he pulls a stunt like he did after the votes were counted. You thought that Stacey, the easily annoyed person who was just voted out of your tribe, would appreciate a group hug Coach? Wow.

9. Rick (Last week: 9)

Congrats to Rick for getting to say something in this episode, even if it was just that Albert snores.

8. Sophie (Last week: 8)

7. Jim (Last week: 5)

Jim falls this week, but if he pulls off the alliance switch, he will shoot up the ranks again.

6. Mikayla (Last week: 7)
5. Albert (Last week: 6)

Yay for inertia!

4. Ozzy (Last week: 4)

Precariously holding on to a decent spot, Ozzy is showing signs of not being Boston Rob. He is losing Jim, and has Keith and Whitney wary of the game he is playing. He needs to commit to being the puppet master, or just let somebody else take the lead on his alliance. He is lookng incredibly shifty right now.

3. Elyse (Last week: 2)

Survivor is a delicate balance at times. If you do not converse with someone on a frequent basis, you are pegged as an outsider and become a target; if you talk too much to someone, you are put into an alliance with them and then become a target. Elyse is in a second boat, and might not be aware she is in that boat.

2. Whitney (Last week: 3)
1. Keith (Last week: 1)

Keith and Whitney are in the driver seat. They have information that the rest of the tribe does not, and they are being wooed by both sides of a divide. The key is that they need to make the best decision for them going forward. I suspenct it would be to go with Ozzy and Elyse, as they would be equals in that alliance, and Ozzy would still be the main target of the other tribe. Either way, their decision will have a lasting impact ont he game.
