Unofficial Guide to Ranking the Survivor: One World Final Five

As we get ready for Sunday’s Survivor: One World finale, here are a few notes on the final five, what they’ve done to deserve to win, and their spoiler-free odds of winning. This is not a boot list and there are no future spoilers here, and odds are based on winning in the final 3, not making it to the final 3.

Kim probably has the best chance to win. She has retained roughly the same level of likability as Sabrina while playing the game harder and earning more respect. Chelsea could potentially give her a run for her money. Unofficial Survivor Guide No Spoiler Odds: 3 to 1.

Chelsea‘s unwillingness or inability to take out the only real thread to her winning this game – Kim – is her biggest weakness. She played respectably, but little things like her choice in recent reward partners won’t win her any votes with the likes of Kat (and, by extension, Troyzan and Tarzan). Her mental game is lacking compared to Kim, and that’s why she won’t vote her out and why that will prevent her from winning. She looks like a lock for the final 3, but more than a couple votes might be a stretch. Unofficial Survivor Guide No Spoiler Odds: 10 to 1.

Sabrina is the key to Kim’s success. Taking her to the final 3 demonstrates her loyalty and she’s more likely to split jury votes with Chelsea than with Kim. Kim hasn’t upset anyone enough to cause Sabrina to get a meaningful number of revenge votes, and she’s basically just a stepping stool for Kim. Any hint of a plan or any sign of real gamesmanship might have helped her pitch to win to the jury, but she demonstrated nothing of the sort. Unofficial Survivor Guide No Spoiler Odds: 100 to 1

Alicia is Christina, except only minutely more likable. Whereas Christina barely played the game or made her presence felt Alicia did so in excess to the point where she was annoying. Any self respecting human would hate themselves for throwing a vote her way when there are 3 much more deserving, but she seemed to have some sort of relationship with several people on the jury at some point, no matter how small. She is least likely to make the final 3 out of the remaining 5 barring an unbelievable string of Immunity Challenge victories, but if she did she would have a better shot of winning than Christina – which is still slim to none. Unofficial Survivor Guide No Spoiler Odds: 500 to 1

Christina basically has no shot to win, no matter who she’s up against at Final Tribal Council. Her biggest problem this game has been her inability to stick up for herself and go on the offensive. There have been plenty of unlikable people to play this game, even this season, but none have been able to procure the disdain that Christina has. She’s a punching bag who doesn’t stick up for herself and commands zero respect, and therefore makes a perfect final 3 opponent. She has little to no chance of receiving a single vote. Unofficial Survivor Guide No Spoiler Odds: 100,000 to 1.

  • This is the most predictable season of survivor ever. Everyone knows Kim is going to win. Every tribal council when the guys were still competing was predictable or obvious even though for some reason the guy being sent home was so surprised! It would be nice if Sabrina won this but I am sure that isn’t going to happen. Not only has she played a good game but it would be nice if a black person male/female could win once. I don’t think in all the seasons it has happened but I may have missed one or two seasons.
