PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines.

"TAR 17 PTTE: Entry Thread "
LAST EDITED ON 10-01-10 AT 09:32 PM (EST)

Welcome to a new season of The Amazing Race!

The Amazing Race 17 PTTE

What's a PTTE, you ask? Well PTTE means:
Picks To The End

New players are always welcome, and for new folks who want to play the PTTE game this season, here's how it works:

Here's the goal:

Post your prediction about the ENTIRE elimination order for the season, starting with the first team to be eliminated and ending with the winner. Please put WINNER next to the team that you think will win.

This doesn't need to have any analysis, although you're welcome to throw anything in that you want. With any spoiler information available to you, coupled with your own intuition, see how well you can do.


The game won't close for a few weeks, but all picks made after the first episode begins will incur a point penalty... the earlier you enter, the less points you can earn, so enter early!
Remember, the goal is to end the season with the fewest points.

Scoring:

Here's the way that the scoring works:

1) You do NOT want points... they're bad... it's like golf. Every point counts against you in the standings, so try to avoid them.

2) Points will be awarded to every contestant in the game after each episode of The Amazing Race 17. They will be awarded as the difference between where you thought this week's eliminee would finish and where the eliminee actually finished.
If it is a non-elimination episode, then no points will be scored for that week, and if there is a double-elimination episode, the eliminees will be scored according to the order they were eliminated.

For example: If you think Ron & Tony will come in 5th, and they actually come in 11th, you'll receive 6 points (the difference between 11th and 5th) for that week's episode.

3) You will be given 4 penalty points every time you change your PTTE list after the first episode has aired, but it's only 4 points so change your list if you think it will help you out.

4) If you do not enter before the first episode (well now its the third episode), you will start with a score equivalent to 8 points per episode you missed. That means that it's possible to join the game after several episodes, but you have better chance of getting a good score if you enter before the first episode.

5) After the first show has aired, please do not edit your post to make changes. Just make a new post if you want to change your PTTE list. If my computer crashes (like it did last season), it's the only proof I have of your changes.

6) I will post a few tiebreaker questions in the event of ties at the end of the season. These are important, as tiebreakers have decided the winner in seasons past! More information to follow.

Here are the teams!

You can find out more on the teams at the CBS Amazing Race site.

Andie & Jenna (mother/daughter)
Brook & Claire (co-hosts)
Chad & Stephanie (dating)
Connor & Jonathan (friends)
Gary & Mallory (father/daughter)
Jill & Thomas (dating)
Katie & Rachel (volleyball partners)
Michael & Kevin (father/son)
Nat & Kat (friends)
Nick & Vicki (dating)
Ron & Tony (friends)

Good luck to everyone!

If you have any questions post them in this thread or PM me.
(Private Message located top right on page, larger envelope icon.)

Post your list and number them from 1 to 10.

Sit back and enjoy the next episode of:
The Amazing Race 17

You may change your first lists as many times as you want,
up to 7:59 pm EDT on Sunday, October 3, 2010.

Note from kircon: Please DO NOT post any spoiler information inside this thread, as it's in the Fanatics Forum. If you want to talk about spoilers, go to the Spoiler/Speculation Forum and post there.
