‘Survivor’ tragedy: Which fan favorite went home — Jeremy, Josh or Baylor?

Survivor” castaways Jeremy Collins, Josh Canfield and Baylor Wilson are undeniably this season’s three breakout stars, which made Wednesday night’s episode so exciting as all three were in danger of going home. So, which fan-favorite got their torch snuffed in “Wrinkle in the Plan”?

After agonizing over their decision, Jon Misch and Jaclyn Schultz finally decided to side with the alliance of Jeremy, Baylor, Missy Payne and Natalie Anderson to vote out Josh. Gold Derby readers were notably shocked with this decision, as the Broadway star only had 17/2 odds of going home according to our exclusive “Survivor” racetrack odds. All of our users who correctly predicted Josh’s elimination earned game points based on the odds they locked in throughout the week.

‘Survivor’ predictions slugfest: Why did Julie quit? Will Jeremy win? Is Alec crazy?

Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated. If the majority of users think Jeremy 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.
