SwimSwam Pulse is a recurring feature tracking and analyzing the results of our periodic A3 Performance Polls. You can cast your vote in our newest poll on the SwimSwam homepage, about halfway down the page on the right side, or you can find the poll embedded at the bottom of this post.
Our most recent poll asked SwimSwam readers how Olympian Elizabeth Beisel would do on the 39th season of Survivor:
Question: How will Elizabeth Beisel do on Survivor?
- Winner – 17.7%
- Losing finalist (~2nd-3rd) – 18.9%
- Jury member (~4th-13th) – 49.2%
- Early boot (~14th-20th) – 14.1%
About half of voters had Beisel landing on the jury with the late-game players who don’t make the final. Only 14% had her going out early, but only 17% had Beisel winning.
For those unfamiliar with the show, the game starts with two or more tribes competing and voting out members, merging them into one tribe somewhere around halfway through the season. Typically, those voted out after the merge wind up sitting on the jury that votes for the winner among the final three players left standing.
SwimSwam voters hedged their bets with Beisel a bit, with about 86% picking her to make it to the jury phase of the game, and only 14% predicting her as an early boot. From there, though, about 50% of total voters said Beisel would be voted out after the merge. About 36% said she’s make the season’s final three, with the votes split very closely between those who thought she’d win and those who thought she’d lose in the finale.
A multi-time Olympian, Beisel should be an athletic asset to her tribe, which helps in the early goings. The main fear for the former national teamer is that she’s considered too much of a challenge threat or perhaps an easy early target based on her fame.
Below, vote in our new A3 Performance Poll, which asks voters to pick which NC State college program will finish higher at NCAAs in 2020: the men’s team with a longer track record but a lot of graduations, or the women’s team, which graduates very few point-scorers and brings in a great recruiting class:
