8. Michele Fitzgerald
Having lost her closest ally in the game in Parvati Shallow, Michele is in a terrible spot. With the exception of getting her three fire tokens for a total of four, she is now on a tribe with three original Dakal members outflank her. More importantly, those three have proven to be against her and having an ex-boyfriend who has more to lose by keeping her through the merge has incentive to vote her out.
The one saving grace is Yul. We’ve seen a promo of Wendell trying to sneak a quick conversation at camp, which seems to be setting up someone else’s blindside. Much like The Wardog in Edge of Extinction, a quick conversation from someone on the opposite ends of a vote could be an olive branch needed for her to get to the merge. If she gets there, her options expand dramatically.
7. Nick Wilson
Nick has represented a middling game throughout Survivor: Winners at War, which makes sense considering his strategy. The only time he’s really needed to step up and put himself in the spotlight is to shine it back onto Tyson, earning his fire token after voting him out. For the rest of the game, he’s been hiding in the shadows.
If Wendell and Michele are working together, then the odds are 50/50 that Nick is the recipient of a blindside. However, with Yul having a wider reach of control in the game yet lost most of his old-school ties, I don’t feel like Wendell is going to risk blowing up his game to take out Nick. He continues to purposefully own his middling spot.
