‘Survivor’ castoff Jon Misch sizes up the Final 5: Who has ‘blind luck’? (Podcast)

All of our users who correctly predicted Jon’s blindside earned game points based on the odds they locked in throughout the week in our Survivor” prediction contest.

In our new Q&A (listen below), Jon also talks about what we didn’t see on TV and he sizes up all of the remaining castaways. What does he really think about the Final 5?

Jon on Jaclyn Schultz: “Love of my life … I’m pulling for her.”

Jon on Missy Payne: “Now that I see how hard [voting me out] was for her, it changes things a little bit. I think I would still say ‘trustworthy’.”

Jon on Baylor Wilson: “College girl. She follows her mom’s lead.”

Jon on Keith Nale: “Blind luck.”

Jon on Natalie Anderson: “Strategery.”

Also in our Q&A, Jon reveals that he left his hidden Immunity idol in his bag on the island, so he was not able to keep it as a souvenir. He’s hoping to get it back some day, maybe at next week’s reunion show following the season finale.

As for moments we didn’t see, Jon caught a stingray while out on Exile Island and then cooked it for dinner. He says that, besides winning Immunity, that was his favorite moment of his entire “Survivor” experience.

‘Survivor’ predictions slugfest: Will Missy, Natalie and Baylor be Final 3?

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.
