Ehhh, are we allowed to do this? I've been on and off and forgot if such a thread is allowed or not.

If it is not, please just lock it.

If it is, please start with the predictions and speculation! I'll post mine later on!

After last episode, I really think Chrissy will either be blindsided by her alliance mid-merge, or will have the story of "why did she lose" ala Aubry.
I feel like Ryan will continue to be the narrator, but he's been too dominant edit-wise since the beginning to win imo.
I have Ben and Lauren (yep :lol:) as my main contenders right now. And I feel that Joe is gonna stay a while, like top 6.

A strong edit with a case to win and currently holds the position of power:
Chrissy - they don't like her, but if she managed to make it all the way to the end with a not so bitter jury, then all is good
Ryan - people like him and we clearly know he's a strong analyst. however, he gives me the Todd/Cochran feel but not as capable. comes off more as sneaky than a mastermind with the way he talks

Relatively strong edit (at least there's a story):
Lauren - people like her, except Cole, but she seems like the typical 4th placer
Mike - very smart, more likely to be voted off next for being a mastermind as he's now no longer in the position of power
Joe - even more likely than Mike to be voted off
Ben - flipper, potentially 4 of the jury members are gonna hate him if jury starts this week. good to bring to the end, but then again, if jury management is good, all's good

Floating as of now BUT there may be a back story:
Devon - ??? Ryan will pull him far, either a F3 filler but won't receive any votes, or voted out at F5 for being seen as a "challenge threat" or some other bullsh*t
Ashley - i actually REALLY REALLY like her. i believe there's a backstory that's not been unfolded yet and she gives me the Natalie feel, where her win might come from no where. but then again, currently as of now.. nothing is to be seen

Completely hopeless (if they pull a win my jaw will drop) :funny: :funny::
Desi - erm, ok.
Cole - eat more sugar and cinnamon pls. if you piss more people off people might actually consider taking you to the end.
JP - in the majority but soon Ryan's gonna be like HE NEEDS TO GO OMG HE'S A THREAT AND THEN HE'S GONE. bye

F3 Contenders: Ryan, Chrissy, Ben/Devon
My Prediction Boot for next week: Joe or Mike
ps: this is the first time in 73462347234923 seasons I'M COMPLETELY SPOILER FREE YES YES YES :chute: :chute:

Wishes:
- Neither Ryan or Chrissy wins. However, if they don't win, they will come for another season for sure, ugh. I could handle Chrissy, not Ryan.
- Lauren, Mike and Ben/Desi F3, with Lauren being the winner. I would love to see her winning. <3

I really want Lauren's edit to pick up strategically, so that there's tangible hope to her winning. :lol: Everyone from casuals to superfans seems to love her.
Her edit hasn't been stale, but I still think it's more wishful thinking than logic to predict her as a winner. Though some people on sucks have been saying her edit would be strange for a non-winner (or at least a non-contender).

It would be really awesome to have Lauren and Chrissy both in the F3 though!

I think Lauren has a consistent edit for someone like Lauren if she was to win.

I think for Chrissy to win she'll have to cut Ryan before he cuts her.

I am starting to fear a Denise vs Malcolm kind of F4 vote. Ryan and Chrissy are very concerned about their bonds with each other and the alliance each other has, but still they reckon each other as social threats. I would really like to see them both making it far, along with Lauren, Ben and Dr Mike.

TBH If Healers are to be voted off one by one, Mike should really get bonds with someone else to be kept and be a potential swing vote when the Heroes and the Hustlers have to battle it out in the end. I think Dr Mike is possibly the only Healer that may have this kind of survival thought, because Joe... I would love tribe lines for most of the postmerge with some people swinging here and there.

I don't see the season as THAT bad, I read every single review thinks this is a complete letdown, with no rootable people. I am enjoying it and wouldn't say it is the worst of recent seasons (Flops Apart anyone?).

This season has kept me entertained so far!!! No big crazy moves yet, but seriously people need to stop expecting that big moves should be made ever so frequently for a Survivor to be considered playing the game???

I'm not disparaging any negative opinions, but it pisses me off that fans have become so jaded because of the "big move" era, where twists were manufactured and crazy plays were encouraged.
There were many seasons in the past where the strategy may have been boring, but the characters drove the season and it was well-received. Gabon is still one of my favorite seasons, for example.

I like most people this season, so I applaud casting. Of all the remaining people, I'm only not a fan of JP and Ryan. I'm not rooting for Joe or Cole either, but they're great characters.

Yesterday I wanted Ben on F3 with my two favs, now he's one of my hated along with Ryan and Chrissy. I just can't stand those 3.

A strong edit with a case to win and currently holds the position of power:
Chrissy - negative edit
Ryan - still pretty much a Todd/Cochran edit
Ben (moved up) - negative edit
Lauren (moved up) - positive edit

Relatively strong edit (at least there's a story):
Mike
Joe
Devon (moved up)

Floating as of now BUT there may be a back story:
Ashley

Completely hopeless (if they pull a win my jaw will drop) :funny: :funny::
Cole
JP

F3 Contenders: Ryan, Chrissy, Ben/Devon
My Prediction Boot for next week: Joe

After the last episode, I'm 100% confident prediction-wise that Chrissy is a F3 loser.
If you read some of Desi's interviews, it's pretty clear that Chrissy was generally (strongly) disliked by the cast. I just can't see her getting the votes at FTC.
However, she's got great gameplay, and I can see her making the FTC. With her edit, it would be a a great shock win for someone else.

I still think Lauren might win lmao.
Ben/Ryan have had way too good edits throughout the season. Not positive-good, but visibility-good. One of them will either be a shock boot by an idol/blindside, or a F4 loser.

I think it's starting to look like Lauren, Ben, Chrissy, Ryan and Devon might make it further than JP and Ashley.

But then again, I didn't expect Desi to go this week. All's up in the air. Can't wait to see how our prediction holds out!!! :adevil

Tbh now that Desi is gone, I expect Cole & Joe to remain the top targets for at least another week.
If Joe had been voted out instead, I would be speculating that this was the right time for the majority alliance to start looking forward and spread out.
