"I am rooting for Vanessa Rousso to win as I think she is smart, articulate and competitive," confesses our current "Big Brother" top scorer Frederic Lam. "But I think she has been winning too many competitions and getting too much blood in her hands. She needs to lay low and get other alliance members to do her dirty work. Otherwise, she will become a target soon."

You may have noticed that the show's takeover twists have completely disappeared the past two weeks. Well, Lam has a theory about that going forward. "I speculate that each pre-jury evicted houseguest will take over the game each week after the jury has started," he tells us. "This may turn the game upside-down."

Making your predictions is fun and easy. Just log into your Gold Derby account, or you can 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 — everything from the Emmys and Television Critics Association Awards to "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Survivor."
Click on any box and then scroll down to start making your predictions. For each TV show, cast your votes on several different questions relating to the upcoming episode.
If you click on the "Big Brother" button, you'll see something like this:
To vote for who you think will be eliminated next, drag your chosen contestant over from the left to the right. For example, if you think Becky will get the boot, make sure you put her in first place.
Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated. If the majority of users think Becky 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.
Average Gold Derby users just like YOU often turn out to be our smartest prognosticators, so it's important that you give us your predictions. You can continue to update and change your predictions throughout the week, just click "Save Predictions" when you've settled on your choice.
