Did you predict that Neal Gottlieb would be medically evacuated on the highly anticipated merge episode of “Survivor: Kaoh Rong” Wednesday night? If so, you should be taking place in our weekly prediction contest. Hurry — make your “Survivor” predictions for a chance to top our famous leaderboards. It’s fun and easy, so start now by scrolling down to predict who will be eliminated next.
According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that are derived from the predictions made by contest entrants like you, Neal’s ouster was a shocker as he only had 100/1 odds (<1% chance) of being sent packing. That put him in eighth place on our elimination chart for this week’s episode, titled “It’s Merge Time.”
After several of the players mentioned their injuries at the individual immunity challenge, host Jeff Probst decided to send the doctor to camp. While many of the injuries were superficial, Neal’s infected knee was bad enough for him to be medically evacuated. The emotional castaway left the game with a hidden immunity idol still in his pocket, much to the frustration of his comrade Aubry Bracco.
Instead of Neal, our readers thought that either Nick Maiorano (13/10 odds), Joseph Del Campo (7/2 odds) or Kyle Jason (10/1 odds) would be voted out, but they all managed to survive yet another day in Kaoh Rong. Click the right-hand chart for even more odds and rankings.
Congratulations to Jangus Brownstone for earning the top score in this week’s contest. He’s one of three contest entrants to reap 80% accuracy predicting all of the questions for this episode, though he broke the tie with his high 5,251 point score thanks to using his 500 and 200 point bets wisely and locking in the best odds throughout the week.
This reader’s winning predictions were that Nick would win the Immunity challenge, that there would be no Reward challenge, that a hidden idol would not be played and that someone would be medically evacuated. He only missed out on calling this week’s elimination, incorrectly predicting Tai Trang instead of Neal.
Can YOU take down our top-scoring reader Sunhound next week to earn bragging rights and a place on our Season 32 leaderboard? For the entire season so far, he has leading 71% accuracy and 59,561 points, but there are still many weeks left to play in our contest.
In our “Survivor” predictions center, you get to answer the following questions before each episode airs on CBS every Wednesday at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET.:
Who will win ‘Survivor: Kaoh Rong’?
Which castaway will be eliminated?
Who will win the Reward challenge?
Who will win the Immunity challenge?
Will a hidden Immunity idol be played?
Will anybody quit or be medically evacuated?
At the end of each week, the eligible user with the highest prediction accuracy and most points will be the leaderboard champ for the week, so it’s beneficial to keep coming back often and making/updating your predictions.
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.
