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."

The last shall be last

Another rough week for Kisha & Jennifer and this time it turned out to be fatal. Despite being U-Turned, they recovered pretty nicely, mostly thanks to Jaime & Cara's inability to find the next cluebox. Coming back from being U-Turned is a pretty tough feat (as shimane22 showed), so you've got to give them props for making a run at it.

Week 11 Results
1st place - Tammy/Victor (2x)
2nd place - Margie/Luke (1.5x)
3rd place - Cara/Jaime (.5x)
4th place - Lakisha/Jennifer

Do-Over

With Tammy/Victor, the overwhelming favorite, finishing 1st this week, not much changed in terms of the general rankings. As we learned this episode, they would've ended up finishing 3rd last week (.5x), so it really makes me wonder what would've happened to this game, had last episode simply been a non-elimination pitstop.

Unfortunately, the loans ended up knocking three more players out of the game, esquire, suzzee, and Corvis, who each made a Cara/Jaime wager. Going into the final episode, you've no choice but roll the dice. On a personal note, I almost made this wager myself after being burned by the TBC episode, before settling on Margie/Luke.

Thanks for playing, you guys. It would've been quite a turnaround if Jaime/Cara would've pulled it out.

This week's Perfect Bet Award goes to michel with a ridiculously-godlike 127x payout. Thanks to the loan, he turned 6 points into 762. Honorable mention to dragonflies who scored a crazy 53x this week.

The Greatest Gainer Award also goes to michel who jumped 14 ranks overall, followed by dragonflies with 13 ranks. And to think michel tried to quit the game last week.

The top spots didn't shift around too much going into the final week, although we had some huge jumps into the Top 10. It should be interesting to see what kind of strategy is going to be employed going into this final week.

Finale Payout Table
1st place - 2x
2nd place - Break even (1x)
3rd place - 0x

As I mentioned before, I'm comping all the way through the finale. So if you want to comp this week, you might be looking at a 3x/0x/0x payout table. If you're hoping for a final push, it might be worth a shot.

Bonus Game - Slumdog "Million"aire

Per Casino Game tradition, in this final bonus game, teams may place a wager on which contestant will say the word "million" first in the final episode. This includes all forms of the word "million" such as "millionaire," "millions," or even "Chamillionaire." And the previews don't count, as usual. And if no one says it, everyone loses their wager.

Unlike previous years where you wager on teams, this year wagers will be based on which contestant will say it. In other words, you're picking a person, not a team. For example, I'm accepting wagers of "Tammy" or "Victor" but not "Tammy/Victor" together.

Here's the Payout Table for the Bonus Game.

Bonus Game Payout Table
Correct Guess - 6x
Incorrect Guess - 0x

Max Wager - 200 points
Max Number of Wagers - 1

(Considering last week's bonus was +750, +1000 seems appropriate this week.)

TAR14 Teams Remaining
Cara/Jaime
Margie/Luke
Tammy/Victor

Final Note

As usual, in the finale week, feel free to private message me with your picks if you want to keep them a secret. You don't have to, of course, but the option is there. It's just like Final Jeopardy.

Good luck! The comps should make this an interesting finale!


The comps actually forced me to change the Bonus Game from the teams to the individuals. What's a 3x bonus when you can just comp the payout to get the same thing?
