‘Survivor’ predictions slugfest: Are lovebirds Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly in trouble?

Are “Survivor” lovebirds Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly in trouble after last week’s tribe switch? That’s the question we try to get to the bottom of during our latest Editors’ prediction slugfest centered around Episode 5, “Blood is Blood.” (Watch the entire slugfest below.)

Joining me from Hawaii is Gold Derby Senior Editor Matt Noble as we discuss all the latest happenings on “Survivor: San Juan del Sur,” including the elimination of Kelley Wentworth, the rice war between Dale Wentworth and Missy Payne and the tribe switch that unequally divided the remaining couples.

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

It’s time for you to take on other “Survivor” fans and show them how it’s done by predicting who will win this season, who’ll be voted out next, and which tribe will win Reward and/or Immunity. Get our weekly questions right and you could find yourself on our Season 29 leaderboard.

As you can see from the overall season leaderboard on the left, I am currently in the lead, followed by seano25 in second place, Ryan Lapierre in third place and Jason Nolette in fourth place.

Among those predicting last week’s episode, Tom Wasnock scored the most points for the week and tops the Episode 5 leaderboard, followed by BlaketheSnake in second place, Rob’s Fact Checker in third place and Jason Nolette in fourth place.

Show us that you have what it takes to win the cutthroat reality competition here at Gold Derby and win our prizes, including a $100 Amazon gift certificate and a chance to have your questions answered by the eliminated castaways.

To get started, click here or scroll down and make your first prediction using our easy drag-and-drop menu. Don’t worry, you can keep changing your predictions right up until show time. But we urge you not to wait till then. 

Why? Because your predictions will factor into our official racetrack odds that are pored over by other “Survivor” fans and TV execs who want to know which castaways you love and hate, who you want to win and who you are desperate to see get a send-off.

What do you think will happen next? Can the new Coyopa tribe rally to win Immunity after last week’s devastating loss? Will Dale or Reed be voted off next, as per our current Episode 6 predictions? Is Josh still your frontrunner to win Season 29?

To enter your predictions, make sure you are logged into your Gold Derby account or register for a free account via Facebook, Twitter or Google.

After logging in, click on the “Predictions” button found at the top-right of every page. That will bring you to a list of every event currently being predicted at Gold Derby.

We are forecasting everything from the results on reality TV shows like “The Amazing Race,” “Dancing with the Stars” and “Project Runway” to the body count on “The Walking Dead” to the winners of the Oscars, Golden Globes and Grammys. Click on any box to bring up that event and get started.

Watch all of our ‘Survivor’ Slugfests:

#29.02 ‘Method to This Madness’ | #29.03 ‘Actions vs. Accusations’
#29.04 ‘We’re a Hot Mess’
| #29.05 ‘Blood is Blood’

To vote for who think will win, drag contestants over from the left to the right and arrange them in your predicted order of finishing. For example, if you think Josh will win Season 29, make sure you put him 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.

Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated. If the majority of users think Josh will win, that means he’ll have the best odds and will go to the front of the pack. Conversely, the castaways who don’t receive many votes of confidence have the worst odds and will go to the bottom of the pile.

The standard bet for each question is 100 points, which are wagered against the odds you locked in when you saved your predictions. However, for each TV episode you are given one special 200 point bet that you can use strategically to gain more points.

Here’s how racetrack odds work. If you bet 100 on something that has 50/1 odds and you end up being correct, you will receive 50 x 100 points, which equals 5,000 points. You’ll also get your original 100 points back, for a total of 5,100 points.

Get started by making your prediction as to which of the remaining players will end up as the winner of “Survivor” using our easy drag-and-drop menu below our Editors’ video slugfest.
