‘Survivor’ predictions slugfest: Jeremy was robbed! Is Natalie doomed?

Was Jeremy Collins robbed? Is Natalie Anderson doomed now that Jeremy’s out of the game? Those are just some of the topics Gold Derby Senior Editor Matt Noble and I discuss during our new “Survivor: San Juan del Sur” predictions slugfest about the “Gettin’ to Crunch Time” episode.

Also discussed: Is Jaclyn Schultz an underdog to win the entire game? Did Jeremy and Natalie make a mistake giving up their reward to Jaclyn and Jon Misch? Did Reed Kelly break any ethical rules by searching through Keith Nale‘s bag? And was Jeff Probst over-hyping the foot challenge too much?

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.
