Joe Anglim may not have won a million bucks on “Survivor,” but his spot-on impressions of tribe mates Mike Holloway and Rodney Lavoie could very well earn him his own Broadway one-man show. Listen to Joe’s hilarious impersonations in our new podcast below, and then make your predictions for next week’s episode to win our prize of a $100 Amazon gift certificate. It’s fun and easy, so start now by scrolling down and predicting who will be eliminated next.
“Here’s the deal with Mike. Mike has his angry ratchet voice … like he’s got this whole other side of him,” Joe says in his deep drawl. He then switches to a Boston accent for his Rodney impression, joking, “Yo, Jeff, I haven’t had a reward in like four days, bro. I need some carbs. I need a reward, brother. Like, come on, dude.”
Joe also details how his “heart dropped” when Mike asked host Jeff Probst to verify the fake hidden Immunity idol that he’d created in order to try to extend his life in the game. “I think he knew I was trying to pull a fast one. I was so upset, because now he just exposed it to everybody.”
Scroll down to listen to our entire exit interview with Joe, including why he thinks Jenn Brown wanted to quit, his thoughts on the Tyler Fredrickson/Carolyn Rivera secret alliance, what he learned about himself from being on “Survivor” and what it was like being on a “sinking vessel” where he couldn’t do a lot of strategizing.
Congratulations to our user Sunhound for winning this week’s episode contest. If eligible, this reader will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate for reaping 80% accuracy and a 50,364 point score when predicting Episode 9, titled “Livin’ on the Edge.” See contest rules.
Sunhound’s winning predictions were that Joe would be voted out, that a hidden Immunity idol would not be played, that nobody would quit the game, and that Dan Foley, Shirin Oskooi, Sierra Thomas, Mike Holloway and Tyler Fredrickson would all win the Reward challenge. He only missed out on predicting who’d win the Immunity challenge, forecasting Jenn instead of the actual champ Tyler.
Joe was ranked first in Gold Derby’s predictions to go home with final odds of 17/10 (click on the left-hand chart for the episode’s full odds). Sunhound put his 200 point bet on that prediction and netted 320 points. However, he nabbed an astounding 50,000 points by correctly calling all five of this week’s Reward challenge winners with his special 500 point bet: Wow!
Whose torch do you think will be snuffed next? Be sure to visit our predictions center and make/update your forecasts before voting closes Wednesday at 5 p.m. PT. The user with the highest prediction accuracy and most points will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.
Where do you fall on our overall Season 30 leaderboard?

Can YOU beat these frontrunners to win our prizes? Then be sure to take part in our “Survivor” prediction contest. We’re giving away $100 Amazon gift certificates to our weekly winners plus at season’s end. The deadline for each episode is Wednesday at 5 p.m. PT.
Our current overall leader Smartdude predicted Joe’s elimination this week. However, he didn’t even have Hali in his predictions to get the boot in Episode 8 (see complete predix), proving that it’s possible to do well in our contests without getting everything right.
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.
To vote for who think will go home next on “Survivor,” drag contestants over from the left to the right and arrange them in your predicted order. For example, if you think Jenn will be eliminated, make sure you put her in first place. You can continue to update and change your predictions throughout the week, just click “Save Predictions” when you’ve settled on your choice.
