When we informed this week's castoff Shirin Oskooi that Kelley Wentworth is predicted to win "Survivor: Second Chance" by our contest entrants, she gushed, "Kelley is amazing because she knows how to blend in when she needs to, but she also has great opinions and she's got great strategy impulse." If you agree that Kelley will win, 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 readers like you, Kelley is in the first place position to win Season 31 with leading 5/4 odds (45% chance).
No doubt our contest players are impressed by her social skills and the ability to retrieve the hidden idol in the season's inaugural immunity challenge. With that idol in her pocket, Kelley can sail through to the merge, unless she's blindsided in an upcoming tribal council.
During her first season, "Survivor: San Juan del Sur," Kelley entered the competition with her father, Dale Wentworth, and it was his abrasive personality and her inability to manage her own threat level that ultimately sent them both home early. Kelley came to play that year, but her premature elimination kept viewers from seeing her strategy blossom. "Second Chance" was made for characters like Kelley — the ones we wish we could have seen more of.
Second place on our winner's chart is Spencer Bledsoe, who's down at 8/1 odds (11% chance), as opposed to Week 1 when he was at the top of the list. Spencer fans, if you want him to regain the #1 position on our winner's chart then be sure to vote for him in our predictions center.
Rounding out the top five, Jeremy Collins is in third place with 10/1 odds (9% chance) and then there's a two way tie between Ciera Eastin and Jeff Varner, both at 12/1 odds (7% chance). See up-to-date "Survivor" odds and rankings here.
