Survivor Fantasy League Scoreboard- HHH final standings

Cheaters never win. Unless they cheat well. What does that have to do with our fantasy league? Maybe nothing.


For the last time this season, you can see the full player popularity rankings here: Purple Rock Pick-4 Fantasy Teams

Individual scoring

Shockingly thin scoring for a finale.

Chrissy gets 8 points for two immunity wins.

Chrissy gets an additional 2 points for individual reward win, because I’m being generous and it won’t affect the top of the standings anyway.

Ben gets 3 points for finding the immunity idol. He gets an additional 4 points for playing it correctly.

Devon- and only Devon- gets 2 VTEP points. That’s right, only 2 VTEP points for the entire finale. Very odd.

Ben gets 10 points for the five votes he got at final tribal. Chrissy gets 4 points for the two votes she got. Ryan gets 2 points because Devon is far too generous.

Pick-4 League

In a conclusion that’s not at all suspicious, BBB wins the league by a single point. Icy Truth and Survivor Central tie for second place, just a single point behind. Bamboozled and my real-life actual human friend FriendChooser round out the top five. But just to let her linger in suspense, I’m not going to text her to let her know where she finished. She can click on the spreadsheet link and find her results just like the rest of you.

Diego Armando, despite coming into the finale with a completely intact team, finishes in 9th place. That puts him one spot ahead of TheForRealDeal, who despite sporting an avatar of The Cheat did not seem to cheat. Longtime fantasy leaguer DoctorWu33 finishes in 15th place, three spots ahead of me. Dezbot and rookie commenter Star Z just barely crack into the top 25.

And now for the fun part: Champions League invitations. Per the always-reliable Redmond at Inside Survivor, next season’s cast features 20 players. That means 10 Champions League spots are available. Four of those spots will go to the top four finishers in this season’s Champions League. One of those spots will go to the winner of Outcasts League. And at least four of those spots will go to the top four finishers in the Pick-4 league. Unless, of course, one of them violated Rule #1 of our fantasy league: “Don’t be a dick.” (In layman’s terms, this means don’t play in our league if you’re spoiled.) If I were to find evidence of such, that person’s Champions League invitation would be revoked and instead offered to the next-highest eligible score.

“Eligible score?”, you ask? Well, surely you remember this from this season’s fantasy draft post:

What if I forget/don’t bother to give some indication of my Disqus or Twitter name in my team name? 

That’s cool. But you won’t be eligible for Champions League.

Someone did create a Disqus account with the name Icy Truth (our second place finisher) and post here last week, but the committee is going to review if that person will still be eligible. Bamboozled, our fourth place finisher, has never posted here under that name. So until the committee decides on Icy Truth’s eligibility, that means only three Champions League invitations are being extended right now: BBB, Survivor Central, and…my real life human friend Friend Chooser! If your team finished in the top 10 (and you have an already-established Disqus account with that name), please post in the comments so I can send you a notification of when it’s time to draft for next season.

If you missed out on Champions League- and that’s most of you- you might be able to land an invite to next season’s Outcasts league. If you pay close attention, the path to finding a possible invite has already been laid out for you.

Champions and Outcasts Leagues

Holy shit. I’m too lazy to check right now, but XL Pelican’s 99 points might be an all-time record. Congrats to XL Pelican, this season’s league champion. He’ll be joined in next season’s league by Jersey Luck, DrVanNostrand, and PurpleTally- who despite having the word purple in her name is not a part of the PRP staff. That means next season’s Champions League will likely have no PRP staff in it for the first time. I’m fairly confident I can reach all four of you to notify you of next season’s draft, but if you want to drop a comment on this post that would be useful for laziness purposes.

Oh wait! I forgot about the no-longer-cancelled Outcasts League! I can’t believe it finally happened, but longtime Outcasts League commissioner Matt has finally won the league he runs! Despite scoring just 67 points, he managed to narrowly edge out Final Boss Emma by just one point to take the crown. Blurry Denzel and I finished tied for third, despite a late rally by Chrissy that almost let Ms Sweaterfan tie our score.

So let’s all extend our heartiest congratulations to Matt, who we can all agree won the Outcasts League. I’d also like to congratulate every player that participated in Outcasts this season. Except Saturday Night Palsy. Fuck that guy.

Other leagues

We allowed people to do their own draft-based leagues again this season, because drafts are fun. You can find the results of those leagues here (click the tabs at the bottom to switch to see the other leagues): PRP fantasy leagues.

    Getting to the end with an intact team and finishing in the Top 10 better be worth an Outcast Spot. What else would I have to do?

  • Taako From Teevhii

    I shouldn’t have gotten cute in Outcasts and just taken Ben and JP. Oh well.

    But in FOTM, Mike Hirsch! He did it, the devil! He overcame Gouis’s incredible lead, despite carrying 3-point Patrick in one of his spots!

  • Ben

    HI I GOT 6th PLACE!!!

    So what does that mean? 😜

    • Right now? Nothing. However, you may still receive a Champions League invitation. It all depends on what happens with the current top 4.

  • Maulik Shah

    I’m Bamboozled! Is there any way for me to show that it was me who registered under that name? If not, I truly live up to my name 🙁

    • Unfortunately, you got beaten by a bunch of rules. As I stated in the initial fantasy post:

      “If you want to compete for Champions League, make sure your team name
      includes your Disqus name or some other indication that it’s you. You
      can add a parenthetical after your team name- e.g. Team Name: More Like
      Michaela BAE-shaw, Amirite? (Badplayer91)- that will confirm it’s you.

      What if I forget/don’t bother to give some indication of my Disqus or Twitter name in my team name?

      That’s cool. But you won’t be eligible for Champions League.”

    Draft Time Bitches League Update – Final Standings

    @Assistant Dragon Slayer finishes in 1st place with 111 points. The only player to finish in triple digits, and the only one going into the finale with 2 players left (including the winner). Well done.

    @Alycia Swift holds onto 2nd place with 89 points.

    In the biggest upset in this league’s history (cough thisleaguejuststartedthisseason cough), @hornacek:disqus climbs from 4th to 3rd place with 87 points. Thanks, Chrissy!

    @Kemper Boyd drops to 4th place with 86 points. Just 1 point behind me.

    @EmAndScoutInBK finishes in 5th place with 62 points.

    @Ms Woozah, finishes in last place with 17 points.

  • Jersey Luck got a respectable 2 nd place in Champion’s League this season. My dumb gimmick and my intrest in blocks of wood paid off. See you next season were I have only 2 goals: defeating @PurpleTally and @XLPelican.

    • Saturday Night Palsy

      You may want to just go ahead and add a third goal right now.

      • Cookies?

      • Ehh? I mean I guess that FriendChoser might be a threat but only if a friend with power tilts the game in his-or-her favor.

  • Purplerockmatt

    I did it! I beat Final Boss Emma! I won! Me!

    • Saturday Night Palsy

      You’re like that tiny little Daffy Duck after he gets shrunk by the genie!

      • Purplerockmatt

        that tiny little Daffy Duck that won?

        • Saturday Night Palsy

          I’m sure that he also thought he won.

  • gouis

    I crushed my 1-on-1 treats league with Kemper. ALL THE BRITISH CANDY WILL BE MINE

  • Saturday Night Palsy

    John, John, John… The only thing worse than a sore loser is an ungracious winner! So lets begin the speech…

    I would like to thank everyone that competed against me. You are the people that I beat and without you I’d have no one to beat but myself. I’d like to thank the PRP staff: Andy, Emma, John, Mark and Mark. Without you guys I wouldn’t have a place to gloat about winning. Most of all, I’d like to thank the PRP community. Ben taught us all about what is truly important in this world: a family. You guys are my family and when I win, you all come in second place! Thank you everyone!

    • Saturday Night Palsy

      Also, I guess this is just as good of a place to mention it as any. In anticipation of the million dollars I’ll be recieving from my victory, I finally quit my bellhop job today! I just called the boss and told him I was through with the constant hustle. No more schlepping bags for old Palsy! Thankfully this prize money will enable me to do a little soul searching while I figure out the next stage in my life!

      • If you’re going to take employment cues from next season’s Survivor players, I hear one of them is a male model.

        • [pays cable bill]

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            You may want to keep your receipt for that.

          • As long as the SNP/John rivalry continues, I’ll keep up my Survivoring.

    • forever1267

      I had half of your team, so… that’s like …. ugh math… 20 bucks, right?….. hello….?

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        You know what? You don’t owe me anything! Palsy’s getting the Xmas Spirit!

  • Maritimer

    I’m really enjoying the field day John is having on Twitter right now with the Chrissy truthers and r/Edgic

    • I debated jumping into r/edgic and creating a “This show lied to us all!!!!” post filled with mock outrage. But they’d probably just think I’m serious and agree with me. And that would be terrible.

      • Maritimer

        Survivor was tricking them personally

      • prettyboyprobst

        Yeah, probably not worth it. There would have to be considerable upside involved for me to make such an argument with contrived passion, especially if it goes entirely against beliefs.

        That said, before you tweeted that r/edgic chart, I honestly thought the whole idea of a significant amount of hadcore Chrissy apologists even existing was something that only happened in your and Andy’s head (that chart made me realize that I was barely looking at reddit, twitter or even rhap comments this season), but I’m still not convinced that there are so many of them that it would justify your crusade (neither does the FTC and its results), so maybe (just maybe!) you guys should dial it back a bit for the podcast on that front.

  • Alkanarra

    I may have come in 211 out of 217, but I can take solace in the fact that *everyone* was beaten by a team called the “Big Ballers”. If that doesn’t speak to our collective ability to predict this show, I don’t know what does.

    • Saturday Night Palsy

      I find @bigballersonly:disqus to be pretty impressive. I wasted so much time talking trash all season when all I had to do was make one comment a week and utilize the caps lock key. Efficiency!

  • Lucky Saabola

    Aww Man! I came in 11th and I put the wrong stupid name. I swore I was lu

  • Blurry Denzel

    I’ve been in Outcast multiple times and have no clue what I should be paying attention to. I like to imagine I’ve gotten the spot through sheer stumbling upwards. I’m the Dr Mike of Outcast.

    • Alycia Swift

      I was in outcast once but I don’t know how I got there in the first place.

    • StormofCuteness

      I, too, have no clue.

  • Mike Hirsch

    I paid close attention, John, and I know the secret to getting into the Outcast league is very cleverly hidden in the first letter of each oh crap that isn’t it.

    • Lira2012

      Yup, still searching. Sad.

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        Did you read John’s bio? And more importantly *wink, wink* did you look at his favorite seasons?

        • prettyboyprobst


          • Saturday Night Palsy

            Why am I evil? Would an evil person ask what the seventh episodes of each of those seasons uniquely had in common?

            I think this is trolling. Is this trolling? I hope it’s trolling. But also still looking…

            Even if I found the clue, wouldn’t know where to show it.

    • I imagined the clue would be pretty popular, and I’m trying to keep tabs on the number of players that find it. I know the leaders in the pick 4 don’t need it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them found it.

    • Taako From Teevhii

      I think you just go into the spreadsheet and put your name in the Outcasts table.

      • Mike Hirsch

        Works for me! Especially as it’s the kind of brazen move that the lazy people here would appreciate.

  • Blurry Denzel

    Another season of Outcasts down. What started as a story of the Lauren rebellion trying to take down the machine (PRP) turned into so much more. The protagonist failed in the mission but was made so much stronger through the journey and us ready to conquer the ghosts of Outcasts past next season. The machine wasn’t so villainous. You had Game Desinger John trying to grasp on to the fantasy he once excelled in, refusing the narrative that he has been passed by the future. The passion is still there. You can see the blood, sweat and tears in the spreadsheets. You had Soldier Matt, emerging from the shadows of the more well known PRP machine characters forging his own path, clawing his way to notoriety. After all, he is the face of Outcast, a valuable cog in the fantasy world. There is Warrior Sweaterfan. The chips are down but, goddamn, she fought. Always will be remembered. Pour out a little for the battler. Finally, the story belonged to Final Boss Emma. She held the power all season. She ruled with a badass aura. People adored and cherished her. A queen on the throne trying to protect the machine. I bow to that and I love the spirit. In the end, it doesn’t matter who wins and it’s not worth mentioning. Outcast has changed the participants for the better. I was proud to be part of it.

      Technically the winner does matter because they go on to Champions League and continued glory. But hey, I’ve never been on Cash Cab, so there’s that.

      • Blurry Denzel

        “They go on to Champions League”

        Sounds like they don’t matter in Outcast then.

        • Saturday Night Palsy

          It’s not like I’m going out to live on a farm so I can run all I want to. I’ll still be around, BD. And I’ll leave some things behind in Outcasts as well, like a pair of big shoes to fill and the shadow of my recent victory!

    DAS Bus – Final Standings

    As predicted, Alycia Swift finishes in 1st place with a whopping 191 points. Having 4 players in the final 6 solidified her dominance over this league. Congrats, Alycia. You destroyed us.

    I finish in 2nd with 150 points. This is the first time I’ve had a winner on my team in any of the leagues since I started. Idols courtesy of Joe and Ben are the only reason I maintain my middling position.

    Diego Armando ends up in 3rd with 111 points. I was hoping Devon could pull off the win but alas, it was not meant to be.

    Thanks to you both for a fun draft league.

    • Alycia Swift

      Yay! Best thing to happen out of this. But I did not have Ben if I recall correctly.

      • Side Character

        You’re right. I had Ben, and I’m pretty sure I mentioned that (he kept me in 2nd). But you had Chrissy, Ryan, Mike, and Ashley, all of whom were in the final 6.

  • Blurry Denzel

    I beat Super Duper Fan in the Ashley Underwood league by two points. An epic comeback. Queen Underwood would be proud.

  • ExtraLargePelican

    – I would like to thank John for being terrible at jinxing me. John, instead of relegating me to an inferior league, you have instead written a serialized paean to my brilliance. Bravo.

    – I would also like to note that I would have won regardless of the F4 twist, so there are no asterisks here.

    – I have been informed that there are no prizes. In lieu of a prize, I claim

    – I will also take this opportunity to condemn edgic, advantages, and Andy’s takes from this season, all of which have been equally terrible.

    – For those of you that want to know my secret, here it is: I’m not actually a pelican.

    The Palsy League Situation

    A solid blowout by @prettyboyprobst:disqus earns him the title of Champion of the Palsy League! 139 points! @badplayer91:disqus came in second (98 points) and @somethingboutfootball:disqus came in third (78 points). In the bottom half I had 58 points, @hboceooftits:disqus had 50 and @drvannostrand:disqus had 39 points.

    Congratulations prettyboyprobst! You have shown that hard work and dedication truly pay off.

    • prettyboyprobst

      Thank you very much! But you’re abashing me, as it was a mere 31 points that made the difference, 129 total.

      It has been an absolute honor to pit our predictive wits against the esteemed winner and dominator of this season’s Outcast League! Thank you for giving us this precious opportunity and may your success continue in the Champions League and bring even higher renown to our little league than it already enjoys.

  • Assistant Dragon Slayer

    Wow, having Ben and Chrissy rocketed my team up from 140-something all the way to 50th. And if TheForRealDeal hadn’t taken the exact team I wanted that would be in in 10th. Thanks for nothing, Roark (to be fair, thanks for 11 points).

    • StormofCuteness

      Wait, what? I only moved up to 62nd from 76th, and I had Ben and Ryan. Recount!

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        Ryan didn’t get nearly the number of points that Chrissy did.

        • StormofCuteness

          So true.

          • prettyboyprobst

            No, not true! I had Chrissy and Devon (and Mike) and only moved up 4 spots from 69 to 65!!!
            I’d rather stay at 69 than be satisfied with so little movement! Devon and Chrissy worked so hard and got their hands dirty for those points!

            (ok, technically IT IS true, Ryan got less points than Chrissy. But I still feel like 16 finale points should be good for more than 4 ranks up the ladder.)

          • StormofCuteness

            Look, I had Ben, the winner, who found another idol and played it correctly, I feel your pain!!

          • prettyboyprobst

            I know. Methinks we need to do some jurymandering in the offseason to ensure that never again we will be defrauded of our just winnings by something trivial like the free will of the jurors. But how we would go about this, I don’t know.

          • StormofCuteness

  • IcyTruth

    Like I said last time, I totally understand if you can’t let me in the league. I clearly remember reading that rule and saying “there’s no way that I’d do well enough for that…” and deliberately ignored it. So that was definitely my bad. I’d love to join the championships league for next season, but if not, then I’ll just have to try again. Whatever happens, just know I’ll be excited for next year no matter what. 🙂

  • indescribable hat

    I’m tied for 12th place what the fuck! I should be annoyed Roark sank my team but this is by far the best I’ve ever done. Gotta remember my strategy for next time.

    • StormofCuteness

      I am super proud of you! I’ve never had a winner before so that’s my only accomplishment (and I keep mentioning it–so clearly, I care too much).

    • StormofCuteness

      PS I was right. You annilated me in one on one. My team was god awful. You chose so well!

      • indescribable hat

        This is such a great season for me in fantasy Survivor, at least compared to how I usually do. I’m second in my 6-person league! Too bad I cared so little about the season I kept forgetting to watch until late Thursday or Friday.

        • StormofCuteness

          I enjoyed it far more than most because none of the cast were assholes.

    Darn it, I only made it to 62nd place. Leave it to me to have two players in the final 3 (one of whom won) and still not get Top 50 on PRP.

    I hope, somehow, that makes my 1st heinous attempt in the Outcasts League less laughable…yeah, didn’t think so.

    Congrats to all the winners and anyone who made the 1st page. Kudos to the PRP staff for providing this fabulous place and making life (and this show) far more entertaining.

    How long until Ghost Island?

  • Super duper fan

    Wow, the whole season I was always just outside the top 100, but I finished in the end in top 40, beating my score from last season, even though I changed to freaking Simone at the last minute. Chrissy and Ben really came through for me, plus r.obbed g.oddess Jessica made a bit of points for me too. This just means that I’m gonna keep getting better and better, till SOMEDAY I’ll finally take the crown.

  • Hello PRPers, was wondering if I could get some thoughts and recommendations.

    Since we appear to be approaching the most meta of Survivor seasons given the concept behind Ghost Island I realized I need to speed up or at least possibly re-prioritize my attempt to get through all of the seasons I haven’t seen yet. I’m wondering, of the seasons I haven’t seen, which ones are most likely to have the kind of high profile mistake that might be featured on GI:

    Cook Islands
    South Pacific

    I’m already well aware of James and his two idols at this point having seen his two returning seasons, but I’m wondering if there were major blunders in these other seasons that might get featured. I realize they’ll probably rely more heavily on recent seasons (because that’s how they do) but I was hoping for some input. If not for GI I would have been watching some combination of Tocantins/China/Philippenes/Cagayan between now and then but I’ll reorder if it makes sense.

    * these are seasons I’d have to pay for to watch and I’d rather not. Luckily I know the chances of something from Guatemala being featured in GI are probably low since they forgot that season exists.

    • I think China is the necessity, although it may be spoiled for you because of the preview. Maybe Caramoan and Cagayan as well.

      • China even though I already know about James? Were there other things from that season that might come up?

        Cagayan is a necessity regardless, probably ahead of anything else GI might spoil me on. Caramoan though… really want to see Cochran and Malcolm’s first go around before I see them on that season but I will think about it.

        Thanks for the input! Really helpful in picking what to watch next. I’ve seen nothing but median to mediocre Survivor in 2017 between GC and HvHvH, plus my first viewings of Panama and One World (of the 4 I watched Panama is the easy winner), so I need something to make me feel really good about the show again.

        • Good point about Cochran and Malcolm. I think Philippines would be a new edition as well to my earlier list. Yes, China may appear a few times on Ghost Island.

          • Good to know. China was high priority for me anyway. Might have just jumped to the top of my list.

    • Maritimer

      Besides what Barbara said (and China is definitely the most important), the other one that jumps out at me is South Pacific. You’ve seen both Ozzy and Coach’s second seasons so I wouldn’t worry too much about their first for SoPa (though Tocantins is a top 3 for me, so I do recommend it)
      I wonder about Borneo, in that they may try to shoehorn a homage to the first season in there but I can’t think of what it would be.

      • I could think of some stretches.

        • Maritimer

          Dr. Sean and the alphabet strategy is the one that comes too mind. Well, that and production screwing Stacey, but I don’t think they’ll include that

          • That was one. I was also thinking of Rudy’s stool from Hands on a Hard Idol

          • Head Architect Sylvia

            I immediately thought of this one too and now I’m sort of excited at the prospect of seeing it as the FIC again! I love it.

      • Good to know. My plan was always to do some kind of run where I saw Tocantins before South Pacific, and SoPa and Philippines before Caramoan but this might prompt a reorder depending on how many seasons I can burn through between now and the GI premiere. Thanks for giving me some more input!

      • If you’re interested in writing up the “What if this fire challenge twist had always existed?” as a post, let me know.

        • Maritimer

          I’d definitely be up for that! Just let me know what I need to do

  • I have decided that I will be taking a break from being an active participant in Fantasy League for Ghost Island. I think this season really killed my joy in fantasy league (not just because I didn’t do well), so I need a breather. However, I still plan on being around to root my Witch-in-Arms Tally and taunt @SNPalsy:disqus because why I wouldn’t I? So, look forward to Fantasy League Khaleesi being the Ghost of the PRP Ghost Island Fantasy League.
