‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur’ preview: Does Jon Misch go crazy after tribe switch?

“Drop your buffs,” exclaims Jeff Probst in CBS’s new preview for Episode 5 of “Survivor: San Juan del Sur,” titled “Blood is Blood.” The tribe switch we wondered about last week is finally here, but presumably not everyone in the game will benefit from this shake-up.

Also in the trailer (which you can watch below), Jon Misch appears to go crazy after the switch, threatening, “If you’re not with me, you don’t know what’s going on.” Meanwhile, Dale Wentworth gets in a fight over his bowl of rice and Natalie Anderson worries that the singles will all be voted out. Let the games begin.

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

Sure, Jon may not have a lot of friends left in Nicaragua, but how long do you think he’ll last in this game? Let’s examine Jon’s winning and losing odds according to the predictions made by Gold Derby’s users in our ongoing “Survivor” prediction contest.

Who will win ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur’?

Of the 14 remaining castaways, Jon comes in seventh place to win. The top four vote-getters according to exclusive Gold Derby predictions are Jeremy Collins (8/1 odds to win), Josh Canfield (9/1 odds to win) and Kelley Wentworth and Reed Kelly (tied at 10/1 odds to win).

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, then scroll down to start making your predictions. For each TV show, cast your votes on several different questions relating to the upcoming episode.

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 Jeremy 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 Baylor will win, that means she’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.
