According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that are derived from predictions made by users like you, John actually had the lowest chance (9/1 odds) of returning to the house. Most of our users thought that Shelli Poole would return, as she had leading 7/5 odds. Becky Burgess was second place at 9/4 odds and Jackie Ibarra was third place at 9/2 odds.
Since the juror question was from Week 9, we can now reveal the top-scoring user from last week’s contest: Frederic Lam. Amazingly, this user correctly got 100% of our questions correct. (See his predictions here.) If eligible, as per our contest rules, he will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.
Moving onto Week 10 of “Big Brother,” Head of Household winner Vanessa Rousso had overwhelming 80% of our users’ votes (1/4 odds) to win the competition. None of her competitors even came close in our rankings. Vanessa then put up James Huling and Meg Maley as the week’s two nominees for eviction, in an effort to split up one of the last remaining pairs.
Who will win the Veto and will it be used to save either James or Meg? In our “Big Brother” predictions center, you get to answer the following questions for the rest of the week:
Who will win the Veto competition?
Will the Veto be played?
Which houseguest will be evicted?
NEW QUESTION: Who’ll be second evictee on double eviction night?
Who will win ‘Big Brother’?
Check out the overall Season 17 leaderboard to the right. Currently our #1 “Big Brother” predictor is Frederic Lam with overall 90% accuracy and 204,029 points, but there are still many weeks left to play in our contest and be eligible to win our weekly and overall season prizes.

To vote for who you think will be eliminated next, drag your chosen contestant over from the left to the right. Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated.
If the majority of users think Vanessa will go home, that means she’ll have the best odds and will go to the front of the pack. Conversely, the contestants who don’t receive many predictions have the worst odds and will go to the bottom of the pile.
Remember that coming out on top doesn’t just mean answering that week’s questions correctly. You also have to use your three big bets (500 points and two of 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a longshot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points, so don’t take them for granted.
