When “Survivor: San Juan del Sur‘s” latest castoff Kelley Wentworth sat down with Gold Derby following her elimination in Episode 5, we asked this 28-year old Seattle native the tough question: Would she have voted out her father Dale Wentworth if it meant going further in the game?
“Yeah, you know, I think I would have,” said a hesitant Kelley. “I know that, unfortunately, a problem from day one was going to be the social game. Not because my dad doesn’t have friends. He’s a great guy. It’s just because some of the people out there were very, very different from people he’s been around. I would have done that.” (Listen to our entire Q&A below.)
Kelley’s elimination from “Survivor” was considered a shocker according the users playing our weekly prediction contest. According to our exclusive racetrack odds, Kelley ranked ninth place when we asked which castaway would be voted off at Tribal Council. Instead, our users thought that either Jon Misch, Julie McGee or Kelley’s papa Dale would be voted out this week.
It’s time for you to take on other fans of “Survivor” and show them how it’s done by predicting who will win this season, who’ll be voted out next, and which tribe will win Reward and/or Immunity. Get our weekly questions right and you could find yourself on our leaderboard next week. As you can see from the leaderboard on the left, I am currently in the lead, followed by seano25, Ryan Lapierre and Jason Nolette.
Kelley was a favorite amongst our predictors as to who would ultimately win the season, often ranking in one of the top three positions. She attributes her under-the-radar, non-combative gameplay to being a fan of “Survivor” and told Gold Derby that her favorite castaways from years past are Kim Spradlin (“One World”) and Russell Hantz (“Somoa,” “Heroes vs. Villains”).

To get started, click here or scroll down and make your first prediction using our easy drag-and-drop menu. Don’t worry, you can keep changing your predictions right up until show time. But we urge you not to wait till then.
Why? Because your predictions will factor into our official racetrack odds that are pored over by other “Survivor” fans and TV execs who want to know which castaways you love and hate, who you want to win and who you are desperate to see get a send-off.
To enter your predictions, make sure you are logged into your Gold Derby account or register for a free account via Facebook, Twitter or Google. After logging in, click on the “Predictions” button found at the top-right of every page. That will bring you to a list of every event currently being predicted at Gold Derby.
We are forecasting everything from the results on reality TV shows like “The Amazing Race,” “Dancing with the Stars” and “Top Chef” to the body count on “The Walking Dead” to the winners of the Oscars, Golden Globes and Grammys.
Click on any box to bring up that event, then scroll down to start making your predictions. For each TV show, cast your votes on several different questions relating to the upcoming episode.
To vote for who think will win, drag contestants over from the left to the right and arrange them in your predicted order of finishing. For example, if you think Jeremy Collins will win Season 29, make sure you put him in first place. You can continue to update and change your predictions throughout the week, just click “Save Predictions” when you’ve settled on your choice.
Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated. If the majority of users think Jeremy will win, that means he’ll have the best odds and will go to the front of the pack. Conversely, the castaways who don’t receive many votes of confidence have the worst odds and will go to the bottom of the pile.
The standard bet for each question is 100 points, which are wagered against the odds you locked in when you saved your predictions. However, for each TV episode you are given one special 200 point bet that you can use strategically to gain more points. If you bet 100 on something that has 50/1 odds and you end up being correct, you will receive 50 x 100 points, which equals 5,000 points. You’ll also get your original 100 points back, for a total of 5,100 points.
Here are a few other fun nuggets from our Q&A with Kelley:
*She was very close to Natalie Anderson and wished that some of their scenes together could have been shown on TV.
*This “Survivor” experience brought her much closer to her father Dale, and they talk to each other every week now after the new episode airs.
*As a super fan of the show, Kelley wishes she could have made the merge and gone to the “Survivor” auction.
*If this season’s twist had been Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty she has a feeling she would have been in the Beauty tribe.
*A showmance was definitely not in the cards with this current cast, as the only person she could have cozied up to was Drew Christy.
