The Amazing Race 19 PTTE Game
Are you ready for some PTTE?
What's a PTTE, you ask?
Well, PTTE is short for "Picks To The End"
It is a boot list prediction game.
It is a game about the order of who IS kicked off each week
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.
The Team Eliminated in 9th place
Now on to the Scores
Place – Name – Score on current list
Upward movement ^
In case of ties, I alphabetize.

4. Yogi – 4
5. vennui – 5

11. Booted - 13

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 19. 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 Ethen & Jenna 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, you will start with a score equivalent to 8 points per episode you missed.
5) 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.
1st tie-breaker question?
When will Ernie & Cindy use their Express pass ?
The next show will be the 4th episode.
Guess it right and receive a tie-breaker point.
Guess it within 1 episode and receive ½ a tie-breaker point.
You can find out more on the teams at the CBS Amazing Race site.
