Only 12% of our users correctly pegged Aly and Steve as the most likely to be axed at the end of this week’s second of two episodes. Indeed, these Olympians — who had to deal with both a Speed Bump and a U-Turn — had been pegged for a first-place finish.  Instead, that honor went to blind date couple Tyler and Laura

Nine of our users got two of the five weekly questions about this second half of the doubleheader (the Express Pass question is now out of play). Of these, Adam Rock broke the tie by racking up the most points. He savvily placed his 500-point superbet on Aly and Steve losing this leg when they had odds of 6/1 and that earned him 3,000 points. If he is eligible, as per our contest rules, he will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate. 

The outcome of the first of Friday’s episodes was easier to predict with three of our users nailing four of the five questions. While the majority of our users knew that it would be a non-elimination leg and that there would not be a U-Turn, Benutty was one of just 12% who predicted that first-place finish for Matt and Ashley. And he broke the tie for first by forecasting that Tyler and Laura would win date night. By putting his 500-point superbet on this pick when they were at 100/1, he racked up a jaw-dropping 50,000 points. If he is eligible, as per our contest rules, he also will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate. 

Despite only going 4/10 over the two episodes, JasonNolette remains in first place on our overall leaderboard with an overall average of 55% correct.
