Survivor: Cagayan - Power Rankings

5) Tasha - Tasha stays off the bottom for two reasons. 1) She's become a challenge beast, winning the last two Immunity Challenges. 2) The alliance doesn't fancy her as a huge threat, like Spencer. I'm actually starting to think she might be as big of a threat as Spencer, but the folks on the island all have Spencer as enemy #1. The previews also suggest an all-girl alliance might be forming, which could give Tasha new life out there, if they're able to pull it together.
6) Spencer - Even though common logic would suggest that Spencer is next to go, I'm not so sure it happens this week. He's definitely in a horrible place right now and when the episode begins, he'll be most likely to star in "It's anybody but..." But, this is Survivor Auction week. And there is always an immunity advantage in the Auction. Spencer is a superfan. He'll be sitting on that advantage and I'll be shocked if he doesn't buy it. Spencer's already been right there at the end of every immunity challenge. An advantage is likely all he'd need to win this one.
7) Kass - That's right, I think it could be her time. With a 5-2 numbers advantage right now, Tony can sacrifice one of his own and still have numbers to insure himself a spot in the final four. He's tight with Woo and Trish and it would seem Jefra will fall in line when necessary. Kass has to know she can't win right now, so her only choice is to make the big move. And that's to try to organize the all-girl alliance to dump Tony. I don't think it works (well, with the Perry idol in play, it definitely won't work. What I mean is that I don't think they'll even vote for Tony. I think Jefra or Trish will spill the beans and Kass will be branded a traitor and expelled from the game.
Whatever happens, I have no doubts that this excellent season of Survivor will continue to live up to this billing. I love the Survivor Auctions. Outside of the gross food challenge, the Auction is usually one of my favorite episodes of the season. I'm still holding out hope that the minority alliance can turn it around and not make the next few episodes predictable and boring. But they are facing an uphill battle, that's for sure.
