During Wednesday’s episode, we also saw Joe Anglim win the first individual Immunity challenge of the season, while Carolyn Rivera and Tyler Fredrickson expanded upon their frontrunner statuses as they were reunited following the merge.

Kelly was actually ranked third in Gold Derby’s predictions to go home with 13/2 odds. If you predicted Kelly’s torch would be snuffed when she had those odds, you would have won 650 points. However, if you placed your special 500 point bet for that question at those odds, you would have netted a whopping 3,250 points.

Rodney Lavoie was our first-place pick to get the boot with 13/5 odds, followed by Dan Foley in second place with 11/2 odds. Click on the chart to the right to see our readers’ complete predictions for Episode 7, titled “The Line Will Be Drawn Tonight.”

Congrats to our user GOZacharyHardy for winning this week’s episode contest. This reader wins a $100 Amazon gift certificate for being the only user to reap 75% accuracy (see complete predix). His winning predictions were that Kelly would go home, that Joe would win the Immunity challenge and that a hidden Immunity idol would be played. He only missed out on predicting that No One would win the Reward challenge, instead forecasting Joe would prevail there.

Our current overall leader Smartdude missed out on calling the elimination of Joaquin Souberbielle last week, however he did accurately predict that Kelly would go home this week (see complete predix). Smartdude did so well at predicting previous “Survivor” episodes that he’s still our #1 reader to take down, 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.
