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."

A Bad Beat

That was a rough finish for the poker girls, Maria & Tiffany. They went from one Detour task they couldn't compete to another. It's weird to think about what would've happened if they hadn't have included that strongman's bell before the dance Detour. It was actually kinda weird that they had three separate mini-tasks in one Detour option. I get the vibe that the producers realized that the dancing alone was too easy.

Week 6 Results
1st place - Sam/Dan (2x)
2nd place - Meghan/Cheyne (1.5x)
3rd place - FlightTime/BigEasy (1x)
4th place - Gary/Matt (.9x)
5th place - Brian/Ericka (.6x)
6th place - Maria/Tiffany (0x)

...

Well, that was a weird week of scoring. In terms of wagers, there were a lot of different schools of thought. In fact, each of the teams (except Maria/Tiffany) got a lot of wagers. Now that the poker girls are gone, it should be really interesting to see where the wagers fall.

We also had a new bonus game. After doing PAT and Lucky 7 all the time, I forget what it's like to try out a new game. So there was a little confusion over the rules, but generally things went well.

We did have one player bust of out the game, AddieRacer. Thanks for playing, AddieRacer. It's good to see you play, season after season, and I hope to see you next year!

The Perfect Bet Award goes to sarah1234 (2.28x), who narrowly beat jbenz (2.26x) for the award. Way to go!

The Greatest Gainer Award also goes to sarah1234 for jumping 10 ranks to #17. Weez and louislam were also big movers, leaping 9 ranks to #5 and #8.

Bonus Game - Mini-wagers!

Here is really like casino now, you can have so many things to bet on! - louislam, 11/01/09

louislam had no idea what was coming next.

This week, it's all about keywords. Players may place a wager on which team will say a certain word first. The recaps don't count, we're talking the stuff after the credits. What are the different words, you ask? Here's the list.

1. Explosion
2. Bale
3. Direction
4. Taxi
5. Run ("running", "runs" or a verb version accepted)
6. Phil
7. Maria
8. "Shut up" (full expression)
9. Obsequious
10. "Clue box" ("clue" and "box" not accepted)
11. Tired
12. "We're lost" (full expression)
13. Detour
14. Roadblock
15. Mat

Each individual wager may not exceed 7 points. You may wager on as many different words as you'd like, and you may separate wager on as many teams as you want for each keyword. Remember, the correct answer is going to be based on which team says the word first, so there's only going to be one correct pick for each. But, if you want to spread around your wagers on one word, be my guest.

Plurals count as saying the word (i.e. "bales" "explosions" "clue boxes"). If no team says the word, then there is no correct answer and all wagers are losers.

Make sure to label 1) which word you're betting on, 2) which team, and 3) how many points. A sample bonus wager could look like:

Run - 7 points - Brian/Ericka
"Shut Up" - 7 points - FlightTime/BigEasy
Roadblock - 7 points - Brian/Ericka
Bale - 7 points - Sam/Dan

Your wagers will be subject to the following bonus payout table.

Bonus Payout Table
Correct Answer - 5x
Incorrect Answer - 0x

Maximum Individual Bet - 7 points

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!


Could this be the first TAR Casino Game with no PAT Bonus game?
