1. Tony Vlachos
There’s no more accomplished a player in Survivor: Winners at War right now than Tony Vlachos. Many will point to a Tony win as too obvious, and they would do so out of re-writing history. It wasn’t until the merge that he started to emerge as the lion fending off the hyenas at bay, and it wouldn’t be until the Final Nine (seven rounds of voting from Day 39 out of 22 rounds total) that he became the heir apparent.
Tony has dominated in most facets of the game. He has outwitted others with brilliant moves such as the 4-3-2 play that saved a potential number for him, take out a huge threat, and retain his closest ally. He has outplayed others by winning three-straight Immunity Challenges and has gone multiple rounds since then without receiving a single vote against him.
The outlast speaks for itself, but the one thing that could possibly undermine Tony’s game is if he mismanaged how the jury feels about him at the end of the game. I don’t possibly foresee many being completely sour on him enough to vote for somebody else, but Tony’s closest allies are still in the game or were just recently voted out.
If Tony makes it to the end of the game, I feel like he will become the Ultimate Soul Survivor. I just don’t think it would be nearly as unanimous as it should be due to the circumstances of this season’s format.
