‘Survivor’ jawdropper: Did Jeremy Collins have worst downfall in show’s history?

Did Jeremy Collins just have the worst downfall in “Survivor” history? Let us count the ways:

1.) First, Jeremy won the reward challenge but he and Natalie Anderson agreed to give up their prize — food on a yacht — to Jon Misch and Jaclyn Schultz to thank them for joining their alliance.

2.) Then, Jeremy voluntarily agreed to go to Exile Island for the purpose of finding the hidden Immunity idol, but it had already been found by Jon in the previous episode.

3.) Finally, Jeremy got eliminated by his alliance at Tribal Council in one of the most jawdropping blindsides in “Survivor” history.

Gold Derby readers were notably shocked with this outcome, as the Massachusetts firefighter only had 9/1 odds of going home according to our exclusive “Survivor” racetrack odds. All of our users who correctly predicted Jeremy’s elimination earned game points based on the odds they locked in throughout the week in our “Survivor: San Juan del Sur” prediction contest.

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.
