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.

Hay ja vu?

OK, I'm sorry for that pun.

Seeing that Switchback Roadblock was pretty cool. After so many seasons of the show, it's amazing how you forget how tiring that Roadblock was. I mean, you remember Lena/Kristy had a rough time with it, but you forget how much trouble it was for everyone.

It didn't factor too much into this week's elimination, though, because there wasn't one. Gary/Matt were saved by a non-elimination leg.

Week 7 Results
1st place - FlightTime/BigEasy (2x)
2nd place - Meghan/Cheyne (1.5x)
3rd place - Brian/Ericka (1x)
4th place - Sam/Dan (.5x)
5th place - Gary/Matt (0x)

Ouch.

Pretty rough week for scoring. Sam/Dan were by far the most popular wager and their 4th place finish didn't help scores much. Since they were the unanimous favorite, it didn't really shake the ranks up for most people, however.

Every time I do the Mini-Wagers, I think of what a fun idea it would be, forgetting that I'd have to re-watch the episode to hear the keywords. Here are the results.

Explosion - <NONE> (No confessionals about it? Really?)
Bale - Meghan/Cheyne (Sam/Dan were too busy fighting)
Direction - <NONE> (They asked for them, but never by word.)
Taxi - <NONE> (Because of a taxi-free leg)
Run - Meghan/Cheyne ("We've been running a good race so far."
Phil - <NONE> (They didn't acknowledge Phil?)
Maria - <NONE> (Sam/Dan forgot them already)
Shut Up - Sam/Dan (over and over and over again)
Clue Box - Brian/Ericka (at the amusement park)
Tired - Meghan/Cheyne (Sam/Dan were too busy fighting)
We're Lost - <NONE> (nope)
Detour - Sam/Dan & Meghan/Cheyne (the editing doesn't make it clear at all, so I awarded both)
Roadblock - Sam/Dan (when they arrived)
Mat - <NONE>

We had another player bust out of the game, vince3, who got jinxed by the curious lack of taxis in the episode. Thanks for playing, vince3! I hope to see you next season!

The Perfect Bet Award goes to chiubakka (2.16x), due to some nice bonus wagers. Yogi (1.71x) also had a nice week. Nice!

The Greatest Gainer Award also goes to chiubakka, who jumped 14 ranks to #20 overall. Way to go!

This week's Pitboss of the Week is VisionQuest, whose guess last week was only off by 2 minutes. Very nicely done. Here is the Payout Table VisionQuest has chosen.

Week 8 Payout Table
1st - 2x
2nd - 1.5x
3rd - Break even
4th - .5x
5th - 0x

Max Individual Bet - 125 points
Bonus Pick - Time spread between FlightTime/BigEasy & Gary Matt

It's PAT!

"Could this be the first TAR Casino Game with no PAT Bonus game?" - Jims02, 11/04/09 (fine print)

I guess I was wrong about that! This week, players may wager on which team they think will be the PAT, or Painfully Average Team. It's the team that finishes right smack in the middle of the pack, or 3rd place overall.

It's a simple right/wrong wager. If your team finishes 3rd, you win the bet. If they don't, you lose it. Players may only bet on one team, and the wager may not exceed 30 points.

Because we're so late into the season playing PAT, it's going to be a very high stakes game.

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

Maximum Individual Bet - 30 points

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

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


I would put more text here, but I don't want the next pitboss to use it against me.
