This user's winning predictions were that Shirin would be eliminated, that the Bayon tribe would win both Reward/Immunity challenges, that a hidden idol would not be played and that nobody would quit the game.
Shirin became an unexpected fan favorite in her first season, "Survivor: Worlds Apart." Early in that season, Shirin established herself in a negative light, annoying both her tribe mates and viewers with her "superfan" status. When new tribe member Hali Ford told Shirin she was rubbing her the wrong way, she took it to heart and toned down her energy levels, building a new foundation that helped support her character through the bullying that came her way from the more aggressive male contestants later in the game. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to last long enough to make an impression this time around.

Remember that coming out on top doesn't just mean answering that week's questions correctly.
