‘Survivor: Second Chance’: Win prizes predicting who’ll win Season 30

Why? Because your predictions will factor into our official racetrack odds that are pored over by other “Race” fans and TV execs who want to know which teams you love and hate, who you want to win and who you are desperate to see get a send-off.

Many of our readers (31%) already taking part in the predictions contest got it right that Jazmine and Danielle would be eliminated. However, more people (37%) thought that Tiffany and Krista would finish last.

At the end of the fourth episode last Friday, we were shocked when only Justin and Diana & Tanner and Josh moved on from the pit stop. We were left hanging with the rest of the teams still finishing the detour. We didn’t know the order that the rest of the teams made it to Phil nor do we know which teams would be U-turned.

Congratulations to Eeric, one of five contest players to get 75% accuracy by predicting correctly: that Jazmine and Danielle would be eliminated, that no one would be U-turned and that the Express Pass would be used. If eligible, as per our contest rules, Eeric will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.

Check out the overall Season 27 leaderboard to the right.

Adam Rock jumps to the top with overall accuracy of 80% and 8,017 points. He is now ahead of three readers who are all tied at 75% accuracy: Brulash82, Eeric and Rov. That comes from savvy placement of the three big bets (500 points and two of 200 points).
