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."

Hay is for Horses

Hay is also not for people named Joey "Fitness" and Danny. The haybales task looked kind of mundane and uninteresting, but it showed how the technique was more important than brute strength. One would have expected Joey & Danny to beat Dave & Rachel pretty easily in brute strength, but Rachel & Dave's technique is what put them over the top.

Week 6 Results
1st place - Rachel/Dave (2x)
2nd place - Art/J.J. (1.5x)
3rd place - Bopper/Mark (1.2x)
4th place - Brendon/Rachel (even)
5th place - Nary/Jamie (.8x)
6th place - Vanessa/Ralph (.5x)
7th place - Joey/Danny (0x)

Is This Really a Limit Game?

I don't want to overstate this, but this week was a really crazy week of scoring overall. It shouldn't seem really weird or anything with the fairly predictable Dave/Rachel and Art/J.J. successes, but the bonus multipliers really changed things up for several players. More about that later.

Joey & Danny's decision to go after the Fast Forward did unfortunately knock two out two Casino Game players, though, taffnic and samboohoo. The weird thing about Joey/Danny (which they pointed out) was that they were certainly on the upswing in terms of rankings, so this sudden drop to last place came out of nowhere. Thanks for playing, you two. As always, the cocktail lounge is open for some free drinks!

This week's Belated Greatest Gainer Award goes to michiganhugefan, who climbed 10 ranks two weeks back, and was robbed of an award due to my poor spreadsheet skills. This trophy may be a week late, but it is well deserved!

This week's Greatest Gainer Award goes to FFantasyFX who climbed a whopping 17 ranks all the way up to #6 overall. Yogi also had a nice week, climbing 8 ranks. Very nicely done.

The Perfect Bet Award also goes to FFantasyFX with a completely ridiculous 5.67x payout for the week, turning 63 points into 357. Yogi (2.89x), and Ontheroadagain (2.8x) nabbed huge payouts for the week as well. Way to go!

Wk7 was a bit of a shake-out week, especially toward the top of the rankings. Everyone in the Top 4 this week weren't there, easily leaping over my 5th-place paltry 1.73x payout. It's still a very close race, though, and these bonuses are sure to make the difference!

Week 6 Payout Table
1st place - 2x
2nd place - 1.6x
3rd place - 1.5x
4th place - .5x
5th place - .4x
6th place - 0x

Max Individual Bet - 195 points

I Dare You! I dare you to skip the bonus game this week! Don't bet a single point on it! (Don't worry about it, you weren't going to win it anyway!)
Dare Bonus Multiplier - 1.3x (for next week)

Lucky 7!

The object of this game is to pick two teams whose ranks at the end of the next episode add up to 7. In other words, that means you're trying to pick the teams that finish 1st & 6th, 2nd & 5th, or 3rd & 4th.

It doesn't matter what your intent is, just the outcome. If you bet on two teams, expecting them to be 1st & 6th, and then they finish 3rd & 4th, you still win. All you're doing is picking two teams for your wager and hoping they add to 7. I can't tell you how many times I've dumb lucked my way into a win at this game. I recall a bet I made a couple years back expecting my guys to finish 2nd/5th... And then they ended up finishing 3rd/4th, causing me to win the bonus anyway. Hooray for luck!

Place a wager next to your bonus picks. If the final ranks of the two bonus teams you pick equals 7, then you're a winner.

Here's the Payout Table for this game.

Lucky 7 Payout Table
Adds to 7 - 5x
Doesn't Add - 0x

Max Bet - 50 points

Remember, if you're going to play Lucky 7, the wager goes on a pair of teams. Like the example...

50 points - Brendon/Rachel & Bopper/Mark

You may only make one Lucky 7 pick, so choose carefully!

TAR20 Teams Remaining
Art/J.J.
Bopper/Mark
Brendon/Rachel
Nary/Jamie
Rachel/Dave
Vanessa/Ralph

Good luck!
