“Survivor: San Juan del Sur” made up for its lack of hidden Immunity idols being played at Tribal Council this season when not one, but two castaways gave up their idols Wednesday night. And both players — Jon Misch and Keith Nale — ended up needing to play them, or else they would have been voted out. That meant “Two and a Half Men” enthusiast/chicken nugget-eating champ Wes Nale got his torch snuffed with only two votes cast against him.
Gold Derby readers were notably shocked with this outcome, as the young Louisiana firefighter only had 8/1 odds of going home according to our exclusive “Survivor” racetrack odds. All of our users who correctly predicted Wes’ elimination earned game points based on the odds they locked in throughout the week in our “Survivor” prediction contest.

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 Baylor Wilson will win Season 29, make sure you put her 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 Baylor will win, that means she’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.
Here’s how racetrack odds work. 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.
