Is “Big Brother” going to be stale this week now that the Sixth Sense alliance has taken control of the house yet again? “I think so, and I hope Audrey Middleton creates some chaos to make a potentially boring week more exciting,” says John Benutty, our $100 contest winner predicting Week 3. Hurry — make your own predictions for the rest of Week 4 and you could win our prize of a $100 Amazon gift certificate. It’s fun and easy, so start now by scrolling down and predicting who will be eliminated next.
Benutty is one of only five users to reap 89% prediction accuracy while predicting all of Week 3; however, he broke the tie with his high 50,898 point score thanks to locking in the best odds at the right time. See Week 3 leaderboard.
This user’s winning predictions were that Vanessa Rousso would win HOH, that John, James, Jason and Meg would be nominated for eviction, that John would win the Veto, that the Veto would be used and that Jeff would be eliminated. He only missed out on calling that Austin would also win the HOH comp.
“My strategy last week was mostly in paying attention to how Austin allowed Vanessa to take the HOH when they developed the plan to have his noms throw the BOB comp,” Benutty explains. “The trend in ‘Big Brother,’ for better or worse, is to honor the HOH’s wishes, so once she named Jeff as her target early on we could count on him being the eventual evictee.”
He concludes, “This week is going to be a slam dunk with two members of the Sixth Sense alliance back in the Head of Household room: Shelli Poole and Liz Nolan. That should leave Clay, Austin and Vanessa out of trouble. I expect a couple of the pawns to re-emerge as nominees and perhaps asked to throw comps again.”

After logging in, click on the “Predictions” button found at the top-right of every page. That will bring you to a list of every event currently being predicted at Gold Derby — everything from the Emmys and Television Critics Association Awards to “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Survivor.”
Click on any box and then scroll down to start making your predictions. For each TV show, cast your votes on several different questions relating to the upcoming episode.
If you click on the “Big Brother” button, you’ll see something like this:
To vote for who you think will be eliminated next, drag your chosen contestant over from the left to the right. For example, if you think Vanessa will get the boot, make sure you put her in first place.
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.
Average Gold Derby users just like YOU often turn out to be our smartest prognosticators, so it’s important that you give us your predictions. You can continue to update and change your predictions throughout the week, just click “Save Predictions” when you’ve settled on your choice.
