who will win? I know! I know!
(warning: links contain alleged spoilers.) The finale of Survivor 2 may be about a month away, but people are already attempting to predict the winner; guesses range from the academic to the completely lame. A Yale professor has applied his expertise–“business strategy, decision analysis and game theory”–to the show, the Yale Daily News reports. His conclusion? (highlight to read) Colby, or Tina if he doesn’t win the final immunity challenge(s). UselessJunk.com has reached a different conclusion, though; the site claims to have selected Rich as the winner last time, and now, it says that the winner is Rodger. SurvivorAddicts.Com says “a source” on its message boards copied down a list of the order of expulsion that an alleged insider gave her during a chat; the list, which is–surprise!–100 percent right about the first eight episodes, is just surfacing now. Are any of these right? Only time will tell.
