Let's get serious, people. Survivor: Blood vs. Water comes to an end this Sunday -- in CBS's usual three-hour blowout -- so that means we have just a handful of days to strategize. While we're officially down to 4 players, Redemption Island still exists (pointlessly or otherwise) to give 3 others a shot. 

So 7 survivors battling for that Final 3 spot! Let's breakdown the chances of each remaining contestant.


Tyson

At this point, it's basically Tyson's game to lose. He sort of knows this, too. (Remember that weird stress-crying from a couple of weeks ago?) He's played a very clever game, notably orchestrating the game-changing flip on Aras and finding the two Hidden Immunity Idols, one of which he still has. With a current three-man majority on the island, he should be able to coast to the finals. 

Who he could likely beat in the Final 3: Gervase, Monica, Tina, Laura

Who he might have trouble beating in the Final 3: Ciera, Hayden

Gervase

Poor Gervase. He's been battling Tyson's shadow for weeks now. No one thinks Gervase could've lasted this long without Tyson, and it doesn't help that Gervase hasn't actually done anything that interesting as an individual. Whether or not he realizes this, may not matter. It seems like it's too late for Gervase to assemble a Final 3 in which he could actually emerge victorious.

Monica

No offense, Monica fans (are you out there??), but it'll take a miracle for your girl to win the million bucks. Granted, her Survivor resume isn't awful -- she picked up a couple of Immunity wins and stayed painfully loyal to her alliance. It's just that she has paid absolutely not attention to the Final Jury. Does she have even one vote in the bag? Nope.

Ciera

I misjudged Ciera, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Laura's daughter had a rather poor showing at the start (with a couple of failed puzzle challenges and uninspiring strategizing), but she's more than made up for it since the merge. After flipping on Tyson, almost working over Monica, and winning her first Immunity Challenge, Ciera actually has a decent shot of winning -- if she could make it to the Final 3, of course. She's currently the odd man out, but everyone on Redemption Island is a friend... Though the helpfulness of that is dubious.

Hayden

If I were on Survivor, I would fear a Final 3 that saw me sitting next to Hayden. The guy, a former Big Brother winner, is charismatic and good under Tribal Council pressure. (You saw last week's episode, right?) His resume backs him up too, with a nifty and thoroughly entertaining nudge toward rock drawing as his prize accomplishment. Redemption Island is a big problem, though. He's up against Tina (snooze) and Laura the challenge dominator. And even if he pulls out of their alive, he's facing the fearsome threesome of Tyson, Gervase, and Monica.

Laura

Okay, so Laura has played a ridiculously impressive and admirable Redemption Island game. Unfortunately, her regular Survivor game has been less than inspiring. She's been voted out TWICE. This lady can't nail down the alliance thing at all -- sort of an important part of the game -- but, yeah, she's great in a challenge. Or a puzzle. Or a balancing race. She's the favorite to make it out of Redemption Island (again), but what then?

Tina

Tina is the Gervase of Redemption Island. Her game has been nothing to scoff at, but it always pales in comparison to another's -- in other words, Laura is her Tyson. Tina keeps pulling out the second place finish, good enough to stay in the game and that's about it.

Who do you think can win? Who do you should win? We'll find out together when the Survivor: Blood vs. Water finale airs this Sunday at 8pm on CBS.
