Who will win ‘Survivor: Worlds Apart’? See exclusive predictions

Last week, our users correctly predicted the elimination of Shirin Oskooi with 35% of the vote. Listen to our exit Q&A podcast with Shirin here, or scroll down to the bottom of this post.

As for tonight’s episode, titled “Holding on For Dear Life,” our readers are setting their sights on Shirin’s “super fan” nemesis Dan. He has leading 9/5 odds of being voted off, followed by Tyler in second place with odds of 13/5, and then Rodney Lavoie in third place at 8/1. See complete predictions for Episode 12.

I side with the consensus this week that Dan will be eliminated next. However, in the event of an upset, my #2 choice is Mike Holloway. See my complete predictions.

Rounding out the Final 7 are Carolyn Rivera in sixth place to be eliminated with 25/1 odds, and then Will Sims in last place with odds of 50/1.

If you go with Dan as your elimination prediction at 9/5 odds and you’re correct, you will only earn 180 points. However, if you predict Mike instead with your special 500 point super bet and you’re correct, your total will be much higher (10,000 points) because Mike’s 20/1 odds aren’t as good. This is where the strategy — and fun — comes into play here at Gold Derby when making your weekly predictions.

Whose torch do you think will be snuffed next? Be sure to visit our predictions center and make/update your forecasts before voting closes Wednesday at 5 p.m. PT. The user with the highest prediction accuracy and most points will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.

Where do you fall on our overall Season 30 leaderboard?

All season long, three users — Smartdude, Benutty, Taloson — have been battling it out for the top spot, and this week Smartdude took the #1 position on our leaderboard with his “smart” predictions of Episode 11. He now has leading 65% prediction accuracy while Benutty is in second place with 63% and Taloson is in third place with 60%. Talk about a true nail-biter!

Rounding out the top five are JasonNolette and Sunhound, who have 58% and 56% prediction accuracy, respectively. Click here to see where you score on our overall season leaderboard.

Can YOU beat these frontrunners to win our prizes? Then be sure to take part in our “Survivor” prediction contest. We’re giving away $100 Amazon gift certificates to our weekly winners plus at season’s end. The deadline for each episode is Wednesday at 5 p.m. PT.

Our current overall leader Smartdude predicted Joe’s elimination back in Episode 9. However, he missed calling the next two back-to-back ousters of Jenn and Shirin (see complete predix), proving that it’s possible to do well in our contests without getting everything right.

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.

To vote for who think will go home next on “Survivor,” drag contestants over from the left to the right and arrange them in your predicted order. For example, if you think Sierra will be eliminated, make sure you put her in first place. You can continue to update and change your predictions throughout the week, just click “Save Predictions” when you’ve settled on your choice.
