Of the 16 “Survivor: Second Chance” castaways still in the running to win the $1 million prize, Gold Derby’s readers predict that Kelley Wentworth will triumph. However, you’d be foolish to discount these three dark horse players who could win it all: Tasha Fox, Keith Nale and Kimmi Kappenberg. After reading my analysis below, go and make your “Survivor” predictions for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift certificate each and every week. It’s fun and easy, so get started by scrolling down to predict which castaway will be kicked off the island next.
Coming into the season Tasha seemed like an unlikely contender to win “Survivor: Second Chance” given her steep competition, but has truly returned to win it all. From the start of the season, Tasha has seemingly crafted a very social game like the one utilized by Sandra in both of her winning seasons. Saying that, Tasha has also proven herself to be a threat at challenges as well this season and is a team player in every sense of the phrase while creating a seemingly solid alliance that could go very far in this game. If she continues on this trajectory, she could easily find herself in the finale this season. In short, Tasha has become one to watch in Cambodia. Gold Derby odds to win: 100/1
Another castaway that is flying under the radar thus far is Keith. While Keith may not be a powerhouse player at challenges and is not shown doing much at the camp, Keith is still around and seems to have bonded with his tribe. It is yet to be seen how strategic Keith’s gameplay is this season, but if it’s similar to his last appearance it could take him to the finale. Plus, if Keith finds an immunity idol like he did on “Survivor: San Juan del Sur,” it will provide greater longevity in the course of the season. In short, Keith might be one of the biggest surprise contenders if he plays his cards right. Gold Derby odds to win: 100/1
Last but not least we have Kimmi, who had been an early exit in her original season and mostly remembered for the argument with Alicia over poultry. That and her lively and emotional nature resulted in initial poor odds for her in this second chance. This season, Kimmi seemingly has embraced the importance of alliances and like many contestants has bonded with her tribe. Kimmi also has reigned in the unpredictability from her initial season, which has surprised fans thus far. Yet, one has to wonder when Bayon’s winning streak will end since the winning streak of her tribe in “Survivor: The Australian Outback” led to her elimination. Will history repeat itself? Gold Derby odds to win: 100/1
