Did you predict that Kelley Wentworth would finally use her hidden immunity idol on “Survivor: Second Chance,” thereby sending home a gobsmacked Andrew Savage? If so, you should be taking place in our weekly prediction contest. Hurry — make your “Survivor” predictions for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift certificate. It’s fun and easy, so get started by scrolling down to predict which castaway will be kicked off the island next.
According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that are derived from the predictions made by contest entrants like you, Andrew’s elimination was a shocker as he only had 33/1 odds of being voted out. Most of our readers thought that either Stephen Fishbach (21/20 odds), Ciera Eastin (3/1 odds) or Joe Anglim (9/1 odds) would be heading home instead, but all managed to survive yet another Tribal Council.
By using her hidden idol, Kelley ensured that her small three-person alliance with Ciera and Abi-Maria Gomes made it through another vote. Will this threesome be able to break up the powerful Bayon alliance next week, or are they sitting ducks heading forward?
Congratulations to our reader Josh McSkimming for earning the top score in this week’s contest. He’s one of four contest entrants to reap 80% accuracy predicting all of the questions for Episode 8, titled “You Call, We’ll Haul,” though he broke the tie with his high 5,331 point score thanks to using his special 500 and 200 point bets wisely. If eligible, as per our contest rules, he will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.
This reader’s winning predictions were that Andrew would be eliminated, that Joe would win both the Reward and Immunity challenges and that no one would quit or be medically evacuated. The only question he got wrong was whether someone would play a hidden idol. As of this writing, Josh is banking on Jeremy Collins to win “Survivor: Second Chance.”
Check out the overall Season 31 leaderboard to the right. Currently our #1 “Survivor” predictor is Smartdude with overall 87% accuracy and 74,475 points, but there are still many weeks left to play in our contest and be eligible to win our weekly and overall season prizes.

At the end of each week, the eligible user with the highest prediction accuracy and most points will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate, so it’s beneficial to keep coming back often and making/updating your predictions.
To vote for who you think will be voted out next, drag your chosen castaways over from the left to the right and arrange them in your predicted order. Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated.
If the majority of readers think Joe will be voted out, that means he’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.
Gold Derby readers 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 forecasts throughout the week, just click “Save Predictions” when you’ve settled on your choice.
Who’s going home next? Making your “Survivor” 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) and then start casting your votes.
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.
