6. Nick Wilson
At this rate, of all the people who seem like they can float their way to the end, Nick Wilson is the likeliest candidate. He’s been bounced around as a newbie amongst seasoned veterans, and his input continues to be tertiary at best. We’re not going to Nick for much strategic insight in group dynamics other than confirming what he’s been told.
Were he winning this season, we’d be seeing a lot more of his tried-and-true confessional dynamics, as he played heavily into the David vs. Goliath theme. He’s in the exact same spot minus the control, although he seemingly found himself into the majority alliance this time around (even if he is on the bottom). He’s had to vote out his Survivor idol twice so far!
Where does Nick’s game go from here? One thing’s for certain; he isn’t going to be the next to be voted out unless he’s a casualty of another advantagegedon or sudden surprise. With the number of powers in the game, I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
More likely, we’ll see Nick float his way to the finale and fight for a spot at the Final Tribal Council, playing a diminished version of a social game that established big moves winners won’t accredit to him.
