Survivor: San Juan del Sur Power Rankings

Jon had no idea about what was happening at Tribal, and now his closest ally is gone. Still, at least he didn’t all blubby when his girlfriend went to Exile Island. He even said that she would be able to handle it.
Missy was the one we saw come up with the idea to vote for Drew. For sure everyone was thinking it, but it takes someone to actually step up and say it. Of course, at Tribal Council she also stepped up and said that half of her tribe was selfish and lazy.
Everyone on her tribe applauded when they saw Coyopa had voted out John Rocker. The good news for Julie is that with a tribe switch coming up, she can easily flip her allegiance to people who are obviously disinterested in her feelings. The bad news for Julie is that the people she will have to flip over to are the same ones who voted her boyfriend out.
Coyopa didn’t get as much screen time last week, but we can still assume they are continuing their dysfunctional ways.
After being the voice of the Coyopa tribe for the first few weeks, Josh was nowhere to be seen last episode. Still, I assume he’s still the one running things over there.
Wes was just as invisible in last week’s episode. But how will he feel when he learns his father has broken the firefighter code? “Shocked and ashamed” is my bet.
Jaclyn was sent to Exile Island. That was her big moment.
We saw Alec trying and failing at playing mind games with Baylor, the only person on his tribe he feels he can pick on. Isn’t it great that he is so clear about how this is happening because of his relationship with his father and his brother, but at the same time so clueless that he actually has the power to stop acting like a jerk? I mean, when you say “the only reason I’m only being mean to you is because my father made me do all the chores, and never asked my stupid Derek Zoolander brother who would have just screwed it up,” it should result in some kind of cathartic breakthrough. But not with Alec.
Baylor may be thrilled that she wasn’t the one voted out last time Coyopa went to Tribal Council, but she is still the Coyopa punching bag.
Dale, the only one unaware that John Rocker would be going, was clearly not on the same page as the rest of his tribe. The others did a lot of reassuring that he was still a part of their alliance and voting out someone without him knowing about it was just a one-time thing. But that’s exactly what they would say, isn’t it?
Tune in for tomorrow’s episode where there’s a tribe switch, making this week’s power rankings utterly meaningless! And then come back again for Kim and David’s recap.
