Mind blowing Tribal Councils, massive game moves, and three chickens waiting to be slaughtered. This week saw some big points distributed, so let’s see how the draft is progressing.
This season, I am joined by three former Survivor contestants to draft five players between us. They are: Carolyn Rivera, Survivor: Worlds Apart Co Runner-Up; Jessica Lewis, Survivor: Millennials vs Gen X Contestant; and Bret LaBelle, Survivor: Millennials vs Gen X & The Amazing Race 31 Contestant.
Here are the current standings after Week 7:
Now through press photos, it became clear a Reward Challenge was played out, although cut from the episode. The winning tribe of this Challenge is still unknown, so if it becomes revealed over the course of the season, we’ll be sure to add it to the draft. But for now, those missing 3 points for either side will have to remain unused.
Vokai managed to pick up the Immunity win so 5 points go out to each tribe member. That’s Dan and Missy for Carolyn’s team, equalling 10 points. All of Lauren, Elaine and Tommy for Jessica’s team, the maximum 15 points for her. No one for me, so no Immunity points headed my way. And both Aaron and Elizabeth for Bret, 10 points in total.
Janet was randomly selected to visit the Island of the Idols, so an immediate 2 points were sent Bret’s way. She was however the first person to choose not to play the Island of the Idols challenge, so she neither gains nor loses any more points from her visit, keeping Bret with the firm 2.
An intense Tribal Council saw some major moves made. It was evident Dean was gifted Kellee’s idol to play, so he received 5 points for grabbing the idol and then another 10 for playing it, adding 15 points to my team. Jamal then played his idol for Noura, so another 10 points were given my way, and 5 given to Carolyn for the play on Noura. In the end however, Jack was voted out and took off 10 points from my team.
With Jack’s elimination, my once intact team has been decimated to 3 in just two weeks. This now puts Carolyn ahead in sheer numbers, having a 4-3-3-3 lead over Jessica, Bret and myself. Also, I think it’s safe to say I had an extremely lucky run with the idol plays, with Dean, Kellee and Jamal all being on my team to grant points, with some that I’d end up losing with Jack going.
I still hold a lead with 159 points, but Jessica’s in 2nd place with 131 (only 28 points behind), Carolyn with 130 and in 3rd (1 point behind), and Bret still in double digits on 89 and in 4th (41 points behind). With the merge next week, and points for Individual Immunity being a whopping 10, there’s still no calling who will win the draft at this point in the season.
The point system used for the draft is as follows.
This draft is updated weekly as the season progresses.
