Eleven episodes are down, only two to go. The final eight became seven so how did our draft change after the events of Week 11?
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 11:
No Island of the Idols visit this week, and kinda disappointed with the inconsistency of it considering there was a perfect opportunity to with the Loved Ones Challenge. But it’s an hour show, so okay, whatever lol.
Speaking of the Loved Ones Challenge, the final eight were wrapped to learned their nearest and dearest were joining them on the beach, but they had to compete for some love to really hammer it home. They competed in pairs, which thus technically made the challenge a team reward, so only 3 points were up for grabs each for the pair that won. That pair ended up being Tommy and Janet, so 3 points were added to Jessica and Bret’s respective teams.
At the Individual Immunity Challenge, Lauren managed to outlast everyone else and claim her first necklace of the season, securing a spot in the top seven. This brought a further 10 points to Jessica’s team. Also, at camp, Elaine managed to find a hidden immunity idol, so yet ANOTHER 5 points were given to Jessica’s team.
There was much talk about a rise over the power alliance before Tribal Council, but when Dean blew the plan up, all eyes were on Noura for attempting to blindside the alliance and Tommy. In the end, the person on the bottom of it all, Karishma, saw her exit in a 5-3 vote. This removed 10 points from Carolyn’s team, dropping her down to only two people left in the draft. Additionally, amongst the confusion, Elaine decided to play her hidden immunity idol that she found that episode, so Jessica rounded out the episode with a further 10 points to be added to her total.
With some massive point grabs going Jessica’s way, she’s cracked the 200 mark and sits at 203, solidifying a first place pole position for the time being. Carolyn, despite losing 10 points this week, stays in second with 173 points. I continue with my lucky charm Dean and point score of 158, remaining in third. And Bret, although picking up a few points this episode, still sits at last with 119.
The gaps are starting to widen. There aren’t many Tribal Councils left, which means someone’s got a winner on their hands and it could be anyone’s pick to who has the secret Sole Survivor. In saying that, will it be enough to take out the draft title? Only time will tell.
The point system used for the draft is as follows.
This draft is updated weekly as the season progresses.
