Those are just some of the questions we try to get to the bottom of during our new “Survivor: San Juan del Sur” predictions slugfest, which you can watch below.
Joining me this week is Gold Derby Senior Editor Matt Noble, who puts together an interesting strategy regarding Natalie Anderson and Jeremy Collins joining up post-merge with the power alliance of Baylor Wilson, Missy Payne, Jon Misch and Jaclyn Schultz. Could this be the final six of Season 29?

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.
