Stats: 22-year-old former Miss Delaware from Newark, Delaware
First impression: This sweet young pageant girl is very naive and thinks that her whole tribe is like a family… except for Jonathan.
Odds of winning: 75 to 1. Someone who thinks this show is about making friends is definitely not cut out to win.
Stats: 49-year-old former teen star from Dallas, Texas
First impression: Blair Warner! OK, not that anyone in her tribe actually knows who that is, but we're mostly excited about this season because this former "Facts of Life" star played one of the most snooty characters on TV. She claims to be a superfan and even made an effort to learn how to make fire before she went on the show, and she has the intelligence to solve puzzles. She purposely didn't tell anyone that she was famous in the premiere, but she could probably garner some sympathy if she told them how she lost all her money in the stock market. She might even get RC to give her advice postmerge.
Odds of winning: 80 to 1. She may have skills, but she's got no social game whatsoever. You take the good, you take the bad … those are the facts of life.
Stats: 25-year-old bartender from Hermosa Beach, California
First impression: He lived in Micronesia for a year teaching ESL to little kids. He knows how to make fire, but he's smart enough not to take all the credit for it.
Odds of winning: 2 to 1. His preexisting survival skills could come into play here, and he's got the charm to win people over. He's our favorite to win this whole thing.
Stats: 50-year-old professional speaker from White Lake, Michigan
First impression: He's the dude who fell into the fire and severely burned his hands on "Survivor: The Australian Outback." It was one of the most shocking moments in reality TV to that point, but clearly the guy hasn't learned his lesson. He already has a cut on his foot, his hand, and his head because he's insanely dangerous with a machete. Someone needs to Skupin-proof their hut. He's also clearly taking the commanding role and joining the "young" alliance while trying to tell Lisa how she should be playing her game.
Odds of winning: 10 to 1. He's the strongest of the returning players by far, and he could win … if he doesn't get airlifted out before that happens.
Stats: 24-year-old engineering graduate from Holmdel, New Jersey
First impression: He's strong and keeps his mouth shut but thinks that he could partner up with Abi (because she obviously finds him hot) and then manipulate that alliance in his favor in the future. Like RC's gonna let that happen.
Odds of winning: 13 to 1. He's got a shot, but there's some tough competition.
Roberta "RC" Saint-Armour
Stats: 27-year-old investment banker from New York, New York
First impression: This really annoying girl is playing straight out of the gate, lying about her occupation (when she doesn't really need to) and making an alliance with Skupin, Pete, and Abi so she doesn't have to deal with old lady Lisa. And we hate her talk about how she's so tough because she works on Wall Street in high heels.
Odds of winning: 4 to 1. She's on our nerves, but she's a commanding force on the island, and we're guessing she'll push her way far in this game.
Stats: 45-year-old environmental attorney from Glenside, Pennsylvania
First impression: Did we feel bad for the guy when we thought he was dead in the middle of the jungle after playing some stupid maze challenge in "Survivor: Samoa"? Yeah. But we're not really glad to have him back, as he's a stubborn and forceful player, which is what nearly got him killed the first time around. This time he says he's not going to be a leader and that he's going to foist that title on to some unsuspecting sap … but his actions prove that he's the actual unsuspecting sap in this scenario. You'd think he'd have learned from his previous mistakes.
Odds of winning: 100 to 1. He's already on his way out the door. Only an immunity idol will keep him alive for a few extra episodes.
Stats: 28-year-old insurance saleswoman from Silver Spring, Maryland
First impression: She goes just by her last name, which would irritate us except that she seems like a somewhat savvy player. She instantly recognizes Jeff Kent, because an old boyfriend was really into baseball, but instead of confronting him or blurting it out to the tribe, she's holding that valuable nugget of information close to the vest until it becomes useful to her situation. Yeah, we like her.
Odds of winning: 6 to 1. She's strong and smart, and she's our personal favorite. She just needs to make a strong alliance to go far.
