Hello, good people, and welcome to the finale of Survivor: South Pacific here at Box Office Prophets. We're down to six people vying for the title of Sole Survivor and the $1 million prize that goes with it. Four people are still in the game: Sophie, Albert, Rick and Coach Wade, and two people are now living on Redemption Island: Ozzy and Brandon. Tonight we'll see the final RI Duel, where either Ozzy or Brandon will get back into this game. Then we'll see two Immunity Challenges, two votes and one Final Tribal Council.
While there's not a whole lot to say to build up to this, I do want to mention that I sure do hope Tim Tebow can beat the Patriots in enough time for God to make it from the Broncos game to the Survivor finale. Otherwise, it could ALL get screwed up! Here's the final Power Rankings of the season.
Sophie 8-1. That's right. I've moved Sophie up to #1 on the Power Rankings. While I still think that Albert did more damage to himself than Coach on Wednesday, I do think he did some damage to Coach. The jury was shocked at the Brandon vote and I think they'll hold Coach at least partially responsible (if not fully responsible.) That being said, the only person left that should garner support for victory is Sophie. All she needs to do is keep Ozzy out of the game and she stands an awesome chance at becoming a millionaire.
Coach - 10-1. Coach drops for the finale, just because I think he was painted into a corner on Wednesday and he didn't know exactly what to do to get out of it. He will still get Brandon's vote, I think, but he may have lost some other votes by cutting Brandon loose like that.
Ozzy - 15-1. I keep saying it...if Ozzy gets to the end, he wins. And right now, I think there's a good chance he does just that. I don't think Brandon poses much of a threat to him. Then it's a matter of a couple immunities. But let's not forget his deal with Coach. Who knows how that'll play out.
Albert - 50-1. I don't think he stands a chance of winning, just a better chance than Rick and Brandon. Albert MAY have exposed Coach at the last Tribal, but all that does is push more people toward Sophie, because Albert came off as badly as Coach did. The only way Albert wins now is if he gets there with Moustache and Coach and they decide they don't like Coach, so they give Albert the money.
Rick - 100-1. He seems like a helluva nice guy. He's probably the most likable person out of this alliance. He's just not much of a Survivor player. He's done nothing to stand out in ANY way and therefore will not get any votes if he even makes it to the end.
