6. Elaine Stott
It was looking to be a late-rising push for Elaine heading into the Survivor: Island of the Idols endgame. She had found a Hidden Immunity Idol as part of a group-oriented searching party, with those four poised to have an opportunity to vote out Tommy and open up the potential winner of the season to just about anybody.
Unfortunately, two players fumbled over themselves in trying to foil the plan and save face, with one doing so horrendously and the other getting away with it. Regardless, it put Elaine in a position where she had no idea if she was next to go home, so she played her Hidden Immunity Idol and is one of two remaining original Lairo players left in the game.
Now Elaine is exposed, without allies, and would likely beat anybody but Tommy at the end of the game. The ability to win sounds promising, yet she’s sitting likely by herself and has to win out Immunity Challenges until Day 39 to get the chance to plead her case to the jury. The rest of the tribe is a bit ragtag when it comes to challenge prowess, but she doesn’t have beast mode unlocked outside of redneck games seen so far.
