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."

Waterslides of Doom

It's weird to think that a water slide turned out the be the factor that ultimately eliminated a team this week. It's often major tasks or directions that sink people, but it's rare to think of something so harmless-looking as a major obstacle. Either way, it's not my place to judge Mika's fear about it, as different people are scared of different things. It's a tough way to lose, to be sure.

Week 5 Results
1st place - Meghan/Cheyne (2x)
2nd place - Maria/Tiffany (1.9x)
3rd place - Sam/Dan (1.2x)
4th place - Brian/Ericka (.8x)
5th place - Gary/Matt (.7x)
6th place - FlightTime/BigEasy (.4x)
7th place - Mika/Canaan (0x)

Ouch.

The loan game always tends to be a big test for players, causing huge swings of points for many people. This season was certainly no exception. Many Meghan/Cheyne wagers worked out pretty well as they raced to another 1st place finish. The big disappointment was definitely Flight Time & Big Easy's 6th place (.4x) finish.

Because of the bonus game, we had several people bust out of the game, MzTee, Element King, popeave, Wallflower66, 5cats, and IanQuentin. Thanks for playing, all of you. As a consolation prize, help yourself to some complimentary cocktails at the bar lounge.

The Perfect Bet Award goes to 4nikk8 (4.1x) who had a really nice week with a loaned Meghan/Cheyne wager. Way to go!

A lot of big movers this week, so it's hard to list everyone. The Greatest Gainer Award goes to ohmyheck, who jumped a healthy 23 ranks to #16 overall. Niiiiice.

This week's Bonus Winner was beau_30, who guessed the closest time spread. He's slowly taking over all the TAR Games this week, so Max Headroom's PTTE better watch out! Here is the payout table that beau_30 has selected:

Week 6 Payout Table
1st - 2x
2nd - 1.5x
3rd - Break even
4th - .9x
5th - .6x
6th - 0x

Max Individual Bet - 90 points
Bonus Pick - Time spread between Meghan/Cheyne & FlightTime/BigEasy

beau_30 has also selected the following bonus game.

Bonus Game - 5 True Statements

In this game, players can place a bet, and then all you've got to do is make 5 true statements to win. These will be statements about how the teams will finish next week, and which teams will beat which. You'll make 5 statements, each in the format of "(Team A) beats (Team B)". Statements, for example, like these:

Meghan/Cheyne beats FlightTime/BigEasy
Maria/Tiffany beats Sam/Dan
Brian/Ericka beats Gary/Matt

Things like that. If all 5 of your predictions come true, then you win your bet. If you miss even one, you lose the whole bet. There are only two rules.

1. Each team has to be used at least once in your five statements.
2. No team may be used 3 times in your statements.
2. No team may be used 3 or more times in your statements.

So, a valid wager could look like:

Meghan/Cheyne beats FlightTime/BigEasy
Maria/Tiffany beats Sam/Dan
Brian/Ericka beats Gary/Matt
Meghan/Cheyne beats Gary/Matt
Maria/Tiffany beats FlightTime/BigEasy

And if we played this game last week, that would be a correct answer.

Bonus Payout Table
All 5 Statements Are True - 6x
Some Are False - 0x

Maximum Bet - 15 points

With this kind of game, it's hard to gauge what a fair payout value would be, so I'll just do 6x, one for each statement plus an extra to be nice.

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

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