Twitter sentiment analysis for I'm a Celeb to predict the winners before, or one the day of, the finale. I already made something over the summer which succesfully predicted the winners of Love Island four weeks before the finish (while the odds were 3:1).

Could be adapted to be far more effective, and potentially work for any audience-voting game show. Unlimited possibility for increased complexity and features. Coded in Python with sentiment analysis models, machine learning models, and more.
