Tessa has spent another week drifting along. She is in the majority alliance in the larger tribe; sitting back and watching everyone else make moves and fight amongst each other.
With an immunity idol, multiple alliances and in the larger tribe Anneliese is sitting pretty in top zone of the power rankings.
This week, Peter was the centre of attention. When almost definitely about to being voted out at tribal council, Jonathan offered the first person to stand up an opportunity to ‘mutiny’. Which means they can leave their tribe and join the other. Now he is back with his old, strong alliance with friends on both tribes.
Adorable little Jericho is sitting pretty at the top of Asaga tribe. We saw how much the tribe love him after his valiant effort on the A-frame challenge. The lovable character will be someone everyone will want to work with 'post-merge'.
It is becoming clear that Jarrad is terrible at challenges. He either performs poorly or his team 'asks' him to sit out of the challenge. This attribute could help him stay out sight as he continues strategise in his alliance.
Whilst ranked top of the Power Rankings last week, Ziggy has slipped a few places with the addition of Peter. This changes the tribe dynamic and makes Pete’s main alliance with Tessa and Jarrad stronger.
It will be interesting to see how the merge plays out for Henry, who chose to leave his tribe as part of a ‘twist’. Will his old tribe be bitter or willing to work with him again? Henry just may be able to move himself into a power position
Sarah definitely surprised us by surviving Monday's vote. She has strong alliances on both tribes and plays a great social game.
Tara is cruising along and managing to stay under the radar. With no strong relationships or alliances, she wouldn’t be 'too' comfortable with her position.
Lochy’s position in the tribe is also affected by the return of Pete. Less secure than he was last week, so hopefully Lochy can navigate his way through the next few weeks with the merge.
The big boy has made big moves and made big enemies. Coming into the merge, he looks to be the number one target for Samatau tribe; as well as having Tara and Sarah gunning for him.
Still at the bottom of the Power Rankings. Michelle drew some undesired scorn her way when she tried to snitch on tribe members to their own alliance; which didn’t look good for her. At this point, she is relying on people wanted to work with her and finding her useful to their gameplan.
