As you can see from the chart to the left, only 17% of our readers already taking part in the predictions contest got it right that Texans Tanner and Josh would be eliminated. While they had started the leg in last and faced a Speed Bump, it was the U-Turn that sealed their fate to finish at the back of the back.
A plurality of our predictors (48%) were correct that powerhouse players Justin and Diana would finish first for the sixth time. Other than a ninth place finish in the first leg, they have always been either the first or second team to the mat.
Congratulations to Erik10101, one of six contest players to get 100% accuracy by predicting correctly: that Tanner and Josh would both be be successfully U-turned and eliminated and that Justin and Diana would win this leg.
He broke this six-way tie for first by scoring 8,775 points with some savvy placement of the 500 point super bet and pair of 200 point Big Bets. If eligible, as per our contest rules, he will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.
Erik10101 has moved up into a tie for first place with Adam Rock with overall accuracy of 78%. Ties for top accuracy are broken by points so it is vital that you place your three super-sized bets.
Brulash82, Jason Nolette and Rov sit in second at 75% accuracy but that could all change as the contest continues all season long.
