LAST EDITED ON 03-07-10 AT 08:29 PM (EST) Week 5 ~ “Knights of the Round Table”
Week 4 has proved to separate the men from the boys! It was a BIG week in the Pool and I’m sorry to say we have had our first drownings – two of them. First, there is Corvis, a no show in the Pool this week. Sorry Sugar – hope you are okay! Second, there is Travelor, who had the misfortune of picking the talker and bootee, Cirie. Thanks for swimming in the Office Pool this season. Now is a good time to pay our friend Tribephyl a visit in the Loser aka Justice Lodge.
Vince … if you don’t go HERE soon and pick up your goods from last season, I am going to have to personally drag you outta the pool and spank you! On another note, sorry for forgettin’ to post your score from last week. You got 24 points for your pick of Tyson. I have caught you up this week, Sugar.
On another note, Miss Flowerpower has gone from low man with 1 point last week to high man with 180 pts. this week! Bobbing like a cork she is! Just goes to show you that you can bounce back up the Leaderboard just as quickly as you sink down it! Also, a hearty congratulations to this week’s Leader Kircon, who like FloPo, picked Tom. And Tom not only found the Hidden Immunity Idol, but he played it as well.
Other outstanding swimmers in the Pool this week include: Georgianna, Mjewel, Vince3, Haunted One and pepperz – all but MJewel picked Silent Survivors who had no confessionals. Each was rewarded dearly for their pick with 50 points!
This year, we are making it simple in the Pool. The way to earn points is by: Picking Order – (first pick gets the same number of points as there are players in the game and last pick gets only one point); Correctly guessing the number of confessionals your survivor has during the episode OR Correctly guessing that your Survivor will have NO Confessionals; and if Your Survivor has the Title Quote. Other than that, each week there will be several other point-earning BONUS opportunities, so pay attention!
The Week's POINTS:
+10X the number of Confessionals for Hit-the-Nail-on-the-Head Bonus:
pepperz, Georgianna, Vince3, Haunted One ~ 50 points each for NO CONFESSIONALS for Danielle, Courtney and Sandra
agman ~ 40 points for Amanda
MJewel ~ 30 points for Coach
Travelor ~ 20 points for Cirie
+70 Your Survivor uses the Hidden Immunity Idol: Tom
+50 Your Survivor finds the Hidden Immunity Idol: Tom
+35 Your Survivor says the name of the episode: Tom
+35 Your Survivor has the first confessional in the Episode: Coach
-25 Your Survivor has the last confessional before Tribal Council: J.T.
Confessional Counts: I count each time the survivor is shown in a confessional. If a survivor is in a confessional and is talking and the camera goes back and forth showing others and then back to the original survivor talking, I will count that survivor in confessional multiple times.
NO Confessionals: James, Rupert, Parvati, Sandra, Jerri, Danielle, Courtney, RussHell*
1 Confessional: Candice
2 Confessionals: Rob, Cirie, Tyson
3 Confessionals: Coach
4 Confessionals: J.T., Amanda
5 Confessionals: Tom
* If you had picked one of these Survivors and said “No” confessionals, you would have been rewarded with 50 points!!!
