Did you predict that Darnell Hamilton would be the first castaway eliminated in Wednesday’s Season 32 premiere of “Survivor: Kaoh Rong“? If so, you should be taking place in our weekly prediction contest. Hurry — 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 are derived from the predictions made by contest entrants like you, Darnell’s elimination was a shocker as only had 25/1 odds (4% chance) of being voted out first. Click on the right-hand chart for more predictions from the first episode, titled “I’m a Mental Giant.”
After a memorable premiere that featured Jennifer Lanzetti being tortured by a bug in her ear (yuck!) and Aubry Bracco dealing with heat exhaustion, Tribal Council came down to a tie between Darnell and Alecia Holden, who had 5/1 odds (17% chance) of elimination. But Alecia managed to survive a revote when her fellow Brawn tribe members decided to oust Darnell for losing the swimming goggles during the challenge.
Our readers incorrectly assumed that Joseph Del Campo would get the boot, giving him leading 13/5 odds (28% chance). Luckily for Joseph and tribe mate Debbie Wanner, who both were on the chopping block for being “too old,” their Brains tribe won the combined Immunity/Reward challenge.
Meanwhile, over on the Beauty tribe, life-loving Tai Trang was caught searching for the hidden Immunity idol, putting him on the outs with his fellow players. He had 15/2 odds (12% chance) of heading home first, but can he survive another week?
Congratulations to our reader Bird for earning the top score in this week’s contest. He’s the only contest entrant to reap perfect 100% accuracy predicting all of the questions this week, earning 3,033 points in the process.

Can YOU take down our top-scoring reader Bird next week to earn bragging rights and a place on our Season 32 leaderboard?
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.
