According to Week 6’s exclusive Gold Derby odds that are derived from the predictions made by users like you, James had the best chance of winning the Veto at 8/13 odds. Our readers were also spot-on in calling that he wouldn’t use the Veto, as 71% of you correctly predicted that option.

Shelli could have avoided this disaster by winning the HOH competition, but she threw the challenge on purpose because she didn’t want to be seen as a physical threat. She had made a public deal with James that she and Clay wouldn’t go up on the block, but James revoked the deal when he nominated them both.

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 Shelli 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 Shelli 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.

‘Big Brother’ poll: Who’s the WORST winner of all time?

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.
