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."

Of Ski Slopes and Sand Dunes

Gotta give the TAR producers credit for coming up with a pretty inspired leg of the show. The idea of having an episode that features both the desert and a winter wonderland is pretty cool. Um, no pun intended.

Lance & Keri were eliminated, and I'm kinda bummed to see them go, as they struck me as pretty genuine people. They would fight and stuff, but it wasn't anything close to what we've seen with other teams.

Week 4 Results
1st place - Meghan/Cheyne (2x)
2nd place - Brian/Ericka (1.3x)
3rd place - FlightTime/BigEasy (1.2x)
4th place - Gary/Matt (1.1x)
5th place - Sam/Dan (even)
6th place - Maria/Tiffany (.9x)
7th place - Mika/Canaan (.5x)
8th place - Lance/Keri (0x)

Radical.

Another fantastic week in the TAR Casino Game, whose name should probably be changed to the TAR15 Free Money Game. Not a single person had a negative score. Because everyone gained points, the only downside of the week was Sam/Dan's 5th place finish. It didn't lose any points for anyone, but they left points on the table for many.

You know we had a good week as a group if "some only broke even" is the downside of the week.

The Perfect Bet Award goes to several players, each doubling their points. Congrats to mikey, ARNutz, MaxZ, and ohmyheck. Way to go!

This week's Greatest Gainer Award goes to ARNutz who halved their rank moving from #32 to #16. Is 8th place on the horizon? We shall see.

The TAR15 Casino Game is officially closed to new entrants.

This week's Bonus Winner was Yogi, who guessed the exact time spread of 30 minutes. Therefore, Yogi is Pitboss of the Week and has assembled the following table:

Week 5 Payout Table
1st place - 2x
2nd place - 1.9x
3rd place - 1.2x
4th place - .8x
5th place - .7x
6th place - .4x
7th place - .0x

Max Individual Bet - 55 points
Bonus Pick - Time spread between Meghan/Cheyne & Mika/Canaan

Since it's the 5th week, it's time to begin the real bonus games. Yogi has chosen the following...

Bonus Game - Loan Sharkin'

This should be fun, as this is traditionally one of the last bonus games in the season. I'm a little frightened now.

This week and this week only, players have the ability to borrow up to a max bet, which is 55 points, to wager on teams. If you borrow these points, you may bet them on any team you'd like, irregardless of how you wagered your own points.

So, if you had 60 points to spend this week, and you bet:

55 points - Meghan/Cheyne
5 points - Brian/Ericka

You have the choice to borrow up to 55 more points and bet them on whoever you want. So, in this example, you could throw yet another 55 points on Meghan/Cheyne (making your total bet on them 110). Or you could bet them on Brian/Ericka or whoever. Just make sure you say how many points you're borrowing (if any) and put that wager separate from your others.

So, this example entry might look like:

55 points - Meghan/Cheyne
5 points - Brian/Ericka

Borrowing 55 points.
55 points - Meghan/Cheyne

There's one catch. After this week's scoring, you'll have to pay back the full loan to me, plus 20% interest. That means, if you borrow the full 55 points, I'll be taking those 55 points back next week, plus 11 points of interest. But, hey, if you can turn those 55 points into 100+ points, it won't matter much.

If your 55 point loan turns into a 0x payout... Well, you'll be paying for those points out of your own bankroll. So be careful if you're going to borrow points.

TAR14 Teams Remaining
Brian/Ericka
FlightTime/BigEasy
Gary/Matt
Maria/Tiffany
Meghan/Cheyne
Mika/Canaan
Sam/Dan

Good luck everyone! Remember to make a Time Bonus pick too if you want to be Guest Pitboss!


In, like, 10 seasons of this game, I've only been #1 once before this... And it lasted exactly one week. So, yes, I'm totally screwed now.
