Today we’re unveiling the newest thing at Gold Derby — the ability for you to predict competition reality TV shows. We’re starting with Survivor as our test. Please join us and let me know what you think the experience is like — and what we need to change/ improve. We’ll get the bugs out during this test run. Then, starting next month in 2014, we’ll roll out to include all reality TV competition shows.
Look in the left column of your account/prediction page for the link to Survivor — click that and start to playDecember 4, 2013 at 8:20 am #306357
I just made my predictions!December 4, 2013 at 8:32 am #306358
I just tweeted the news out to several folks on Twitter: Jeff Probst, Dalton Ross, Rob Cesternino, Stephen Fishbach, Russell Hantz, and the official Survivor twitter account. Are there any other top Survivor bloggers we should invite?December 4, 2013 at 9:14 am #306359
I really like this idea. Another great item by the fabulous team at Gold Derby. I don’t know if I’ve said this before, but I LOVE being a member at this site.
Unfortunately, I don’t watch Survivor, so I probably won’t do very good at my predictions. Lol. But I will give it a try. I can’t wait to do this soon for Dancing with the Stars and American Idol.December 4, 2013 at 9:33 am #306360
I stumbled upon this last night, so I may have been the first predictor! Oh, and Parvati + Cochran seem like good bets.
Picking a winner is so difficult, but I went with Hayden despite the preview for tonight.December 4, 2013 at 2:48 pm #306361
I hope nobody cheats and looks at spoilers. That’s not fun.December 4, 2013 at 2:57 pm #306362

This shouldn’t have even been brought it up; all is does is make more people aware that they’re out there . . .December 4, 2013 at 3:09 pm #306363
The spoiler issue will be a problem for us in the future with these taped reality shows like Survivor, Amazing Race, Top Chef, etc. It would be sad if we had to limit ourselves to live ones like Idol, Voice, etc. WE WANT ‘EM ALL, BABY!December 4, 2013 at 3:15 pm #306364
Are there spoilers out for Survivor? Please tell me the guy who posted something in the Survivor thread is not right…December 4, 2013 at 3:50 pm #306365
I’m aware of the final 3 spoilers, though I don’t remember the specific boot order. Actually, you can create a spoiler-free prediction game like who gets the first confessional after coming back from the last TC, or after IC, or who Jeff asks the question first at the TC, etc. But those may be too trivial.December 4, 2013 at 10:46 pm #306366
Tom and I have talked about the possibilities of spoilers for Survivor and it seems like this isn’t such a huge problem. Are we wrong? Are Survivor spoilers a bigger problem than we realized?December 6, 2013 at 1:24 am #306367
A full bootlist usually comes out before the season airs. It’s not always perfect though. I remember the Philippines spoilers all painted Skupin as the winner.December 6, 2013 at 10:26 am #306368
PLEASE START TO PREDICT THIS WEEK’S RESULTS! Let’s get as many Derbyites as possible to pipe in so we can complete our test run of this functionality, then roll out to encompass other reality competition TV shows …. tx
