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. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"TAR 20 PTTE: Wk 5 Results ~ Wk 6 Entry (new)"
I discovered I have been off in my weeks. Just following Jim.

The Amazing Race 20 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 REMAINING 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 7th place

Now on to the Scores

Place – Name – Score on current list
Upward movement ^
In case of ties, I alphabetize.
* Free List Change

Congrats you two, you still have a perfect score.
Can you keep it up?

* 1. louislam - 0
* 1. vennui – 0

* 3. KwietOne – 3

* 4. kircon – 5

* 6. beau_30 - 7
* 6. Yogi - 7


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 20. 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 Misa & Maiya 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 third 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!
