Survivor Stock Watch – Week 6
Another week gone in Survivor, and another contestant downed by his inability to lie low. Peter found himself meeting Jeff with his torch this week after being unable to keep his mouth shut. The attention he paid to Julia, in trying to work on a potential blindside against his fellow Brain members, ultimately led to his demise. Next week, I will begin to do a traditional power ranking for the show, as we will be moving towards the merge. Things will begin to heat up moving forward, and there was certainly some movement in value this week among the remaining competitors.
Scot – Stock Remaining High
It’s hard to justify that Scot found his stock rise this week, after already being in a great position during the previous week. However, Scot continued to remain in power after another surprising tribal council. At tribal, Brain member Aubry was uncertain as to whether she would vote for Julia or untrustworthy alliance member Peter. In the end, she turned directly to Scot during tribal and asked whether they would vote for Peter. Scot confirmed this, and it led to the eventual blindside of the cocky ER Doctor. Scot continued to prove his ability in challenges as well and, now that we are going to the merge, he will be even better off. Scot will be a great individual challenge performer and will be reunited with his alliance from the Braun tribe. Scot is in great shape moving forward, so watch for him to make a deep run.
Aubry – Stock Going Down
Aubry arguably had one of the worst tribal councils ever for someone who is still in the game. She showed an incredible amount of indecision at tribal, turning to someone else outside of her alliance for guidance. Then, in an utterly baffling move, she wrote down Julia’s name first on the ballot AND THEN CROSSED OUT HER NAME TO WRITE PETER’S! This is utterly idiotic, as it not only broadcasts your indecision, but also shows Julia directly that you wanted to vote her out. She is very lucky that the merge is coming up, and she will reunite with other members of the Brain tribe. That being said, her performance this week was all-time bad in my books, and I have a hard time seeing her bounce back with strength.
Nick – Stock Going Slightly Up
Not much to say about this guy, who got his first glimpse of screen time for the entire season. He performed well in both challenges for his tribe, and now has the benefit of competing in individual challenges due to the upcoming merge. It benefits him greatly that Debbie from the Brain alliance has taken a liking to him, because I seriously doubt that he would be able to hold his own in any strategic setting. He’s certainly a dope, but he at least established himself as an outside contender, which is worth something.
Joe – Stock Going Slightly Down
Much like Nick, there isn’t much to say about the oldest competitor in Survivor, other than the fact that he was left in the minority this week at tribal. I imagine that Joe will find himself better off after the merge, as he will be with his closest ally in Debbie again. However, it seemed clear to everyone involved at tribal where the vote was going, even if Aubry was indecisive. After asking Scot about how to vote, Aubry turned to Joe, her alliance member. He remained firm on voting for Julia, but Aubry ended up going the other way. It may not mean much, but her lack of belief in Joe doesn’t mean good things for his overall chances.
