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, Joe was the #1 choice to go home this week with leading 9/10 odds (53% chance). After collapsing at the Immunity challenge due to exhaustion, the other players realized it was time to finally give him the boot.
Controversial castaway Abi-Maria Gomes was in second place to be ousted with 11/2 odds (15% chance), but thanks to an all-girl alliance with Kimmi Kappenberg, Kelley Wentworth and Tasha Fox, she managed to survive yet another week and could now potentially make it to the Final 4.
Congratulations to our reader Stephen ishBack for earning the top score in this week's contest. He's one of seven contest entrants to reap 80% accuracy predicting all of the questions this week, though he broke the tie with his high 15,214 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 Joe would be eliminated, that Kelley would be one of the Immunity challenge winners, that a hidden idol would not be played and that no one would quit or be medically evacuated. The only question he got wrong was who would win the Reward challenge; he picked Joe but it ended up being Kelley.
