Paul’s ouster may have been a blindside to him, but not to our readers as he had leading 1/1 odds of being eliminated Wednesday night. It’s safe to say that Paul’s heat exhaustion last week is what prompted so many of our readers to put him at the top of their predictions for who was going home.

After a lunch summit where both tribes sent four members to a neutral beach, the Millennials went on to dominate the Immunity/Reward challenge thanks in part to CeCe Taylor taking too long on the balance beam. CeCe ended up receiving three votes at Tribal Council, but that wasn’t enough to send her packing. Instead, the women in Paul’s alliance — led by Jessica Lewis — turned on him when he made a gaffe suggesting he wouldn’t be opposed to an all-male voting block.

Overall, if you made predictions this week at Gold Derby according to the top odds-getters in every category you would have gotten 100% correct. Paul had 1/1 odds of being voted out, the Millennials had the best chance of winning Immunity (2/5 odds) and Reward (1/3 odds), a hidden idol was not played (1/4 odds) and nobody quit or was medevaced (1/50 odds).
