While I'm personally rooting for Baylor Wilson to win "Survivor: San Juan del Sur," one of our contest frontrunners, Ryan Lapierre, says he's jumping on the Jeremy Collins bandwagon. "He is a firefighter and he is very smart," explains Lapierre. "I can see him blindsiding a lot of people, like he did with Drew Christy, to get to the very end."

After previously giving us his thoughts on "Project Runway," this young movie-theater worker from Massachusetts now sets his sights on "Survivor." Below, our new Q&A with Lapierre.

Psst: Here's how to predict reality TV shows and win bragging rights AND prizes!

survivor san jual del sur winner baylor wilson missy payne entertainment story

Here at Gold Derby, our Editors often engage in lively battles and strong disagreements over who's out front to win reality TV and awards shows. That's why it's so strange to see Editor Matt Noble and I actually in agreement for once. When it comes to the current 29th season of "Survivor: San Juan del Sur," we both think that 20-year-old Baylor Wilson, a student at Belmont University, has what it takes to be the ultimate Survivor and win the $1 million prize.

If Baylor does claim victory, she will join the ranks of only 12 other female winners. Compare that total to the 16 male winners who've won and it's clear women are outnumbered on the list of who's outwitted, outplayed and outlasted over the past 28 seasons. (See our complete photo gallery of past "Survivor" winners below.)

best actress sag awards julianne moore reese witherspoon amy adams

Best Ensemble at the SAG Awards is hit and miss when it comes to predicting the Oscar for Best Picture, since it specifically rewards actors and not overall films. But when it comes to predicting individual acting winners, SAG's predictive value greatly improves. Consider Best Actress, where 81% of nominees (82 out of 101) and 70% of winners (14 out of 20) line up with Oscar.

Hannibal Hugh Dancy Mads Mikkelsen Laurence Fishburne Entertainment NewsThe cast and producers of NBC's "Hannibal" offer their fans new tasty tidbits about the "beautiful, macabre psychological thriller." Appearing at New York's PaleyFest, showrunner Bryan Fuller and stars Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, and Laurence Fishburne discuss the past and what is on the horizon for the third season. They say that "the emotional, blood-soaked" ending of last season was a "crucible" for everyone. Coming up, Hannibal's outfits might become even flashier while he is on the run, and there will not be as many tableaus for the next episodes. They are still pursuing the idea of bringing in Clarice Starling (played in "The Silence of the Lambs" by Oscar winner Jodie Foster). Entertainment Weekly

Fury Brad Pitt Logan Lerman entertainment movies news

"Fury" came out blasting this weekend, ambushing the box office ($23.5 million), conquering film critics (81 score at Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences, too (A- CinemaScore). But how will it fare at the Oscars?

That's a tough call. The film lacks one key Oscar element – snob appeal – but it's packed with many others. It may generate broad academy support with noms in various crafts categories (sound, editing, etc.) Most important, it's such a slick, passionate action flick that it has a high Rooting Factor. That's vital since a film must be the number-one choice of at least 5% of voters in order to earn a nomination for Best Picture. (Here is more detailed explanation of the voting process.)
