The Sole Survivors in the game have different voting and jury records. But certain fans consider a perfect game is one with a person receiving no votes for elimination throughout the season and getting every jury vote at the end.

It’s certainly a tough goal to reach. J.T. Thomas managed to do it in Survivor: Tocantins. John Cochran did this in Survivor: Caramoan.

Some fans think Jesse might not last much longer

But in “Get That Money, Baby,” Gabler noticed Jesse was running things with the vote. He also didn’t like that Jesse came to him with a new plan right before Tribal Council.

The same Reddit thread showed fans don’t think Jesse will win. “More shocking people Are just letting Jesse win the game flawlessly,” one person commented. 

“Cof Cof Omar last season,” someone replied. Omar Zaheer was running things until he was voted out at six.

“And just like Omar he will be taken out, he’s getting too confident and will make a mistake,” a third person …read more
