According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that are derived from predictions made by users like you, Meg was the overwhelming pick to be eliminated first with leading odds of 8/11, or 58% of our users' votes. Conversely, her block-mate Julia Nolan had 4/1 odds, or a 20% chance of being evicted.
After Meg's eviction, host Julie Chen informed the houseguests that they were in the midst of another double eviction episode. By the end of the hour, Meg's "friend-zone" partner James was also sent packing. Our users were less confident about that outcome, as James only had 10/1 odds (9% chance) of being the second evictee.

To vote for who you think will be eliminated next, drag your chosen contestant over from the left to the right. Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated.
If the majority of users think Vanessa will go home, that means she'll have the best odds and will go to the front of the pack. Conversely, the contestants who don't receive many predictions have the worst odds and will go to the bottom of the pile.
Remember that coming out on top doesn't just mean answering that week's questions correctly. You also have to use your three big bets (500 points and two of 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a longshot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points, so don't take them for granted.
