“I mean, get out the arrogant jerk? Come on! He’s incompetent and clueless,” jokes the latest “Survivor: Kaoh Rong” castoff Peter Baggenstos to Gold Derby about his own elimination. “I’d be great to keep around [though], because I have no idea what’s going on.”
Listen to our full exit interview above and then make your “Survivor” predictions for a chance to top our famous leaderboards. It’s fun and easy, so start now by scrolling down to predict who will be voted out next.
According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that were derived from the predictions made by contest entrants like you, Peter’s ouster was obvious as he had leading 6/5 odds (45% chance) of being sent packing. That put him in first place on our elimination chart for Wednesday’s pre-merge episode, titled “Play or Go Home.”
“I can be consistent with what’s portrayed and say, well, they’re getting me out because I had a good chance of winning. But in my mind, that’s not reality,” admits Peter. “The reality was, they’re getting me out because I was too unpredictable. If they didn’t get me out when they could, they couldn’t rely on me later. And there’s a certain element of truth to that.”
Peter tells us that he doesn’t have any hard feelings for his former Brains tribe members, including Aubry Bracco who made a last-minute switch at Tribal Council to send him packing. “It’s a difficult decision for Aubrey because if she would have kept me around, she would have had numbers. I would have been loyal to her.”
Also in our chat, Peter reveals who he wants to win the $1 million, whether his arrogance was real or for the cameras and what he really thought of the Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty twist. Click the video above to listen to our Q&A podcast.
Can YOU take down our top-scoring reader Max next week to earn bragging rights and a place on our Season 32 leaderboard? For the entire season so far, he has leading 77% accuracy and 17,252 points, but there are still many weeks left to play in our contest.
In our “Survivor” predictions center, you get to answer the following questions before each episode airs on CBS every Wednesday at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET.:
Who will win ‘Survivor: Kaoh Rong’?
Which castaway will be eliminated?
Who will win the Reward challenge?
Who will win the Immunity challenge?
Will a hidden Immunity idol be played?
Will anybody quit or be medically evacuated?
At the end of each week, the eligible user with the highest prediction accuracy and most points will be the leaderboard champ for the week, so it’s beneficial to keep coming back often and making/updating your predictions.
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.
