6. Adam Klein
Who would have figured that the player with the most confessionals after two episodes would be Adam Klein? Not me, since apparently, the first player voted out, Natalie, has the most confessionals with 12, but Adam coming in second is remarkable. He smartly focused on letting the old-schoolers eat their own, re-iterated his focus on them, prevented Denise from making a bad idol play, and is the only one stepping up to Boston Rob in ridiculous asks like dumping bags.
We’re either going to see Adam take out a champion or go down swinging. At this moment, only a suspiciously-timed Edge of Extinction advantage could take him out right now.
5. Denise Stapley
Despite it being Adam who prevented her from giving an idol half to one of the most prominent players in the game, she now has an idol shared with someone who’s tapped into the tribe’s social dynamics, and it won’t expire after a couple of Tribal Council visits. She also managed to hide her idol during an idol search and has an extra fire token to boot.
4. Jeremy Collins
Speaking of powers, we’re now in the advantage block of our Survivor: Winners at War episode 3 power rankings, with Jeremy spending one of his fire tokens to buy a Safety Without Power advantage. He still has one left, and now, until the Final 10 (I read the text on the paper), he can send himself back to camp without passing GO and without collecting $200 (as well as voting or getting voted out).
Jeremy knew that he was in trouble before the first Tribal Council, so it’s not like being left out of the vote would result in him being blindsided. This power gives him at least one more life (or voting round) in the game for some time.
