‘Survivor: Second Chance’: Win prizes predicting who’ll win Season 31
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.
As you can see from the chart to the left, an impressive 32% of our readers already taking part in our predictions contest had foreseen the unexpected ending, in which father/daughter team Scott and Blair would escape elimination.
Dating gamers Burnie and Ashely defied our expectations, finishing in sixth place rather than at the back of the pack.
Likewise, engaged choreographers Dana and Matt, who we had predicted would finish in fifth, were the first to reach the mat, only to be told by Phil that this was a non-elimination leg. A mere 8% of our contest entrants predicted this outcome.
Congratulations to our user Jason Nolette for earning the top score in this week’s contest.
He was one of only users to go four for four when answering questions about Episode 1.
Jason broke tie with the other three perfect scorers with some savvy placement of the 500 point super bet and pair of 200 point Big Bets.
Check out the overall Season 28 leaderboard to the right.
Jason Nolette is tied for first place overall with Erik10101, George and Vinny as each has an overall accuracy of 100%.
However, ties for top accuracy are broken by points.
Therefore, it is vital that you place your three super-sized bets.
