Last week on Survivor 2018 we saw another swap, including the formation of a third tribe, so some of the game dynamics changed. Some people are now in better positions and some are now in worse.
I’m going to admit that Power Rankings are difficult for this season because the same tribes keeps winning and losing, and the same people keep laying low and vice versa. I can’t wait for a few more people to go home to make this easier.
The criteria for the rankings include how well players have performed during challenges, alliances they’ve formed and any strategy we’ve seen. Any powers they’ve obtained also come into play. I don’t give a lot of weight to who may or may not be a target (this isn’t who is most likely to not go home next, so keep that in mind). Let’s get to it.
Survivor 2018 Ghost Island Power Rankings Week 6
1. Chris Noble. I’m going to leave Chris at the top spot because the guy is impossible to get rid of. He’s won almost every challenge for his tribe and with the latest tribe swap, he no longer has his biggest rival coming for him. He is quick to annoy others, though, so don’t expect him to be in this top spot for long.
2. Donathan Hurley. Donathan holds onto the second spot here because he remains a great social gamer and has done his part in the competitions. He could be slipping soon, though, as the tribe switch didn’t do him any favors.
3. Domenick Abbate. Domenick stays at No. 3, as the only person right now with any kind of power. He has the hidden immunity idol and the legacy advantage, which can be used very soon. So he’s in a great position as long as he uses his powers wisely.
4. Kellyn Bechtold. Kellyn is staying at No. 4 for now because she has managed to survive almost every tribal council. She might have the Malolo curse following her, but she’s been defying that curse all season. That’s impressive.
5. Wendell Holland. Wendell jumps from No. 9 to 5 this week after his competition performance last week. He remains an obvious threat, but he’s managed to escape elimination several times.
6. Michael Yarger. Michael makes the biggest leap this week, rising all the way from No. 14. He went from certain to go home to the one person who definitely was not going home last week. He’s Malolo’s only hope at winning a physical competition and they know it.
7. Jenna Bowman. Jenna is right in the middle of the rankings, just like she is in the game. She’s just riding along. And we now know that she has some moves up her sleeve to stick around awhile.
8. Laurel Johnson. Laurel is still one to watch. She’s always very aware of what’s going on and she knows exactly how to handle people like Chris, who she can’t seem to escape.
9. Sebastian Noel. He moves up a notch because he is now among the strongest alliance. So that paired with his good nature and his survival skills, he’s in a pretty solid position.
10. Bradley Kleihege. Bradley falls a bit, but only because people are really onto him. He’s playing a good game and I’d love to move him up higher, but I think he’s not doing a good enough job at being low-key with his villainous gameplay.
11. Chelsea Townsend. There’s still not much to say about Chelsea, which means she’s doing something right, even if it is currently coming off as kind of a non-player.
12. Libby Vincek. Libby remains a hard one to rank. She’s a lot like Chelsea, in the sense that she’s just kind of a non-player. She is considered to be non-trustworthy by her tribe, so that puts her in a bad position.
13. Desiree Afuye. Desiree flopped in last week’s challenge, and was almost the person going home. But somehow she managed to not get one vote at Tribal, so that keeps her from falling in the very bottom.
14. Angela Perkins. Angela holds up the bottom again this week as she just never seems to know what’s actually going on, and anytime someone comes to her with a plan or idea, she acts really shady. She has no kind of social game it seems.
