Survivor Fantasy League Scoreboard- Kaoh Rong week 1

It’s week 1, also known as the week 40% of you realized you’d made a huge mistake in selecting Darnell. Time to remedy that.

Welcome back, everyone! Did drafting Darnell drop a deuce on your Pick-4 team? Change your team in the comments below and get a fresh start. Once episode 2 airs, your teams are locked.

Individual scoring table

The big scoring question this week revolved around that first tribal council. How do we score a tie? Fortunately, the Founding Fathers of the Purple Rock Survivor Fantasy League wrote a very robust scoring system document. And when these sorts of gray areas arise, we do the most fair thing: the Purple Rock staff argues about it, and the loudest voice wins. So here, dear friends, is the ruling of the Purple Rock Fantasy League Supreme Court on this issue:

The official rules state that “VTEP points are awarded when your player casts a vote- or participates in a split vote plan- that successfully snuffs someone else’s torch.” Since everyone not named Darnell cast at least one vote in that tribal council for Darnell (whose torch was snuffed), everyone not named Darnell gets a VTEP. The court has spoken.

Otherwise, the scoring was easy- 3 points for Brains for winning the challenge, 2 points for Beauty for coming in second. Your week 1 scoreboard:

Pick-4 League

Since you can change your team up until the second episode airs (and a lot of you still have Darnell, so you should), it would be useless for me to post team scores here. Next week, when the teams are locked, you’ll see everyone’s team scores here.

Champions League

Unlike Pick-4, rosters here are locked. And your early leader is TiminSoCal, who had two Brains tribe members. Tough break for ebolamonkey84, who has an uphill battle from here on out. He can take solace in the fact that his team has already scored 2 points, and thus cannot tie the all-time lowest Champions League score- 0 points by bassmanxvi (truly a remarkable achievement).

Outcast League

It’s a little crowded at the top in the Outcast League. But Count Bulletsula is feeling the pain of drafting the first boot.

Outcast League Kaoh Rong week 1

That’s the scores for this week. Don’t forget to put in any requests for roster changes in the comments, and good luck to all of you (except those of you I’m competing against in Champions League).

  • Other Scott

    I don’t like having two Brawn members, since they’re on the Angkor beach and may be hemorrhaging points in the early going, but give me Kyle, or Jason, or whatever his name is.

    Final team:
    Anna, Kyle, Scot, Tai

    • Other Scott- Anna, Kyle, Scot, Tai

  • I don’t know if you saw my post on the Pick 4, but I would like Michele instead of Darnell. So, I would have Aubry, Julia, Michele, and Tai.

    • Sorry if I overlooked it. It gets harder as that comments section gets more and more massive.

      Barbara Anderson- Aubry, Julia, Michele, Tai

      • I was just double-checking because I didn’t want to get stuck with Darnell. I may change Aubry, but I haven’t decided yet.

  • I have a feeling that the Count is going to rebound nicely from Darnell thanks to Kyle.

    • Bold prediction: Count won’t end up in last place in that league, even with Darnell.

      • I don’t think it is that bold of a prediction.

        • It’s not. I just like to make predictions that might actually be correct every once in a while.

  • MrBurkesButtons

    I’m rooting for Team Sock Hop… classic cars, college girls, ice cream and basketball.
    Can I get Joe, Julia, Neal and Scot?

    • MrBurkesButtons- Joe, Julia, Neal, Scot

  • tocantins

    I feel very good about my pick-4. The complete lack of interest by CBS on this season points to a unimpressive winner. And something in my mind tells me we will get someone like Jenna winning this show. (And that is Julia, in case it is not clear). And if Jennifer can live with a worm eating her ear for almost a full day while hearing annoying tribe mates imply she is overreacting, she can certainly last long in this season.

    • Kemper Boyd

      remember a winner Probst/CBS don’t love can still be a damn fine winner for us.

      • tocantins

        Yes, I have nothing against Jenna (and so far I have nothing against Julia). But the hype is based on the opinion CBS has of the season, not our opinion. (And indeed many times they hyped seasons the fans didn’t like.)

        • Kemper Boyd

          Yep, Mike Holloway was a hugely hyped winner and was to me a below average winner (having to win immunities to win puts you reasonably low on my list) whereas Sophie Clarke is probably one of Probst’s least favourites and she is a mid level winner for me, her game was quiet but really strong.

  • Ryan Deschamp

    I am going to go ahead and switch Alecia out for Michele. So the new team should be Michele, Jen, Liz, Nick.

    • Sorry, Kemper Boyd already has that combination. Try another. I posted an updated team listing about an hour ago (although it’s already changed since.)

  • Assistant Dragon Slayer

    As much as it pains me to switch from Mr. Congeniality to Ms. Yay-Trump Boo-Science:

    Anna, Jennifer, Kyle, Liz

    • Make Your Pick-4 Team Great Again!

      Assistant Dragon Slayer- Anna, Jennifer, Kyle, Liz

      • Assistant Dragon Slayer

        Anna, Kyle, Liz, Tai (I believe episode 2 hasn’t started airing in American Samoa yet).

        • It was worth a shot, but no.

  • Ash

    Can I please change my team to Caleb, Jennifer, Kyle, Michele?

    • Ash- Caleb, Jennifer, Kyle, Michele

  • True Alainer

    well, I was already so frustrated thinking that Alecia would be voted out… the reason why I picked her on Champions League was because I thought brawns wouldn’t go to Tribal Council. but I’m glad they voted out Darnell – even though I don’t really get it. but I have to admit it… Alecia is way dumber than I was expecting. I thought she could play the underestimated card and be just fine but that won’t happen.

  • Saturday Evening Palsy

    I don’t think this group has been taken yet, but I’d like to swap out Debbie for Neal. So, Jennifer, Kyle, Neal, Nick. I almost went Scot. I can’t tell if that would have been a mistake or not.

  • Saturday Evening Palsy

    So who got stuck with first and last pick in the Outcasts League? I was third and sixteenth in the other league.

    • Sharculese got first pick (and thus last pick).

  • quinn

    anna, jason, jennifer, neal

    • quinn- Anna, Jennifer, Kyle, Neal

  • Assistant Dragon Slayer

    Shouldn’t Cydney, Rebecca, and Storm each get a VTEP point?

    • Only Cydney made an appearance this time.

  • Dutch

    Posted this on original Pick 4 board, but didn’t want to get missed. Could I swap out Darnell for Jennifer?

    Anna, Debbie, Jennifer, Neal

    • Dutch- Anna, Debbie, Jennifer, Neal

  • Dutch

    By the way, congrats to TiminSoCal for his early lead. Can we officially dub them Team Geritol?

  • Saturday Evening Palsy

    John, I have to say I think you traded yourself outta first for sure.

    • You think the Jennifer/Liz combo is beating Peter and Michele?

      • sharculese

        There’s a player on this season named Michele? (yes, I am running with this gimmick)

        • Kemper Boyd

          You are going to be so annoyed when she wins…

          • sharculese

            I really think you’re underestimating my ability to maintain a gimmick.

          • Kemper Boyd

            I think your gimmick would play perfectly into Jeff Probst’s view of her if she won…

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        You know, I have no idea why I posted that. I think that Peter will not last long. Aaaaand if I were on a deserted island with a Harry Potter superfan…

  • Kemper Boyd

    I’m betting 13 people don’t swap Darnell out. That’s out of about 40 teams who had him.

    • We’re down to 12 right now. Still two days left, though.

      • Kemper Boyd

        If it’s above 10 I will feel vindicated.

      • RickyB

        Anna, Liz, Kyle/Jason , Caleb

        I’m not sure how to check if this has been taken or not, but Ill just give it a shot.

        • That combo was already taken. The most recent list of teams is found here:

          I try to update that list as much as possible. But if you only want to replace Darnell from your team, you could just give me a ranking of people you’d want to replace him with, and I’ll give you the first one that works. (e.g. Just tell me “I want either 1) player X, 2) player Y, 3) player Z”.)

          • RickyB

            Anna, Caleb, Kyle, Peter

            I think that is free, but just in case my rankings to replace Darnell are 1) Peter 2) Michelle 3) Neal, 4) Jennifer 5) Julie and after that I will just lose.

            Thanks for allowing this craziness.

          • That worked. RickyB- Anna, Caleb, Kyle, Peter

  • HectorTheWellEndowed

    Whoops, posted on the main pick-4 article. Eh, I’m sure you’ll see it with your site omnipotencey.

    • I did, although that’s not always a guarantee. If I ever miss anything, just reply to one of my comments so I get a notification.

      • Wampus

        I’ve always wanted to do this. If it’s not too late, I’d like Anna Michele Neal Jason.

        • That team was already taken by tanja. But you’ve still got 12 more hours to get me a different combination!

          • Wampus

            OK, how about Anna Michele Neal Aubry? Thanks!

          • That one works.

            Wampus- Anna, Aubry, Michele, Neal

  • TiminSoCal

    Ha! I am beating the Turgid Legume in the Champions League! Not sure how long this will last, but I will gloat while I can!

    • You really need to hope Aubry defects to the olds on the Brains tribe. Otherwise you’re likely to lose a player really soon.

  • Joseph Finn

    Aubrey gives me pause and Debb might already be on the outs, but I’m not too unhappy with my picks so far.

    • Kemper Boyd

      I have Debbie and Nick. I fear a mediocre finish.

      • Joseph Finn

        Oy, Nick. Something about him rubs me the wrong way, and he’s one of those superfans where it could go either way.

        • Kemper Boyd

          He’s a douche.

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        What? Nick’s gonna win!

  • DukeSilverTrio

    If available, I’ll take Neal, Caleb, Jennifer and Michele.

    • DukeSilverTrio- Caleb, Jennifer, Michele, Neal

  • Wampus

    I’ve always wanted to do this. If it’s not too late, I’d like Anna Michele Neal Jason.

  • NearlyNina

    Last minute pick-four switch-up. Can I swap Liz for Anna? Then my four would be – Anna, Caleb, Jennifer, Neal.

    • Sorry, that combo was already selected by Jeff Probst’s Hairpiece (which is an amazing sentence to get to write). Anybody else you’d want in that spot?

      • NearlyNina

        Ughhh if only I’d thought to get rid of Jenny…

  • ebolamonkey84

    Which post has the current pick four teams? Would like to get one in before the episode tonight, since I’m unlikely to be t4 in the champions league.

    • ebolamonkey84

      I think I found it. Can i have Anna, Aubry, Kyle, Michele?

      • ebolamonkey84- Anna, Aubry, Kyle, Michele

  • Ara Morin

    Can I switch from Julia to Michele?

    • Damn, talk about a last-minute change of heart! But yes, you got your request in just in time.

      Ara Morin- Aubry, Liz, Michele, Neal
