Nary/Jamie Redux

But worse.

It was weird with Nary/Jamie because after being non-eliminated but being so far behind, they barely even had a chance to catch up. But this one was even tougher for Bopper and Mark, since they couldn't even make it up after a Fast Forward. Crazy stuff.

Cheers to the Kentucky guys who were easily the highlight of this season.

Week 10 Results
1st place - Rachel/Dave (2x)
2nd place - Brendon/Rachel (1.6x)
3rd place - Vanessa/Ralph (even)
4th place - Art/J.J. (.4x)
5th place - Bopper/Mark (0x)

Roll Them Bones

The last few weeks of the Casino Game are always my favorite because you really start seeing people step out a little and roll the dice. So, overall, scoring was very uneven. Some nice swings upward and some sharp downturns as well. Everyone flamed out on the bonus game, although we did have a couple reeeeeeeally close calls, namely Vanessa/Ralph, Brendon/Rachel, and Art/J.J. switch-arounds.

One more player busted out of the Casino this week, MzTee, due to an all-in wager on Bopper & Mark. Honestly, though, considering how they were clearly the best team this season, there is really no one better to lose all your points to. Thanks for playing, MzTee!

This week's Greatest Gainer Award goes to ARNutz, who climbed 8 ranks to #7 overall with a nice multiplier-infused Rachel/Dave wager. Definitely the perfect time for a surge up the ranks.

The Perfect Bet Award goes to both alemattos (2.4x) and michiganhugefan (2.4x), who also made bonusified Rachel/Dave bets. Congratulations you too!

Profit Multiplier - NONE

IanQuentin climbs back into the lead, but look at what a close race it is!!! He and michel are separated by a mere 16 points, or 0.6% of their totals. And many others are very close behind as well. This could be quite a finish this season!

As you can see, there are no bonus multipliers going into the last leg, so we'll wipe the last dare off the board. I was genuinely surprised to find out the finale is this week (and not next), so was immediately worried that last week's dare messed up people's picks.

But then I remembered the dare was just to swap a 1.3x for a .9x in the finale, which has nothing to do with the current picks. So, since you can't take both a 1.3x and a .9x this week at the same time, it's all essentially a wash.

Finale Rules

We are now in the finale leg, so I should go over a couple of the slight rule changes that applies to the finale.

1. The overall team rankings (and payouts) will be based on the finish order at the Finish Line of The Amazing Race. Since we have 4 teams and may have two legs to go, the first leg will only determine who finishes 4th overall (0x), while the final 3 go on to determine teams 1, 2, and 3.

2. The final week is No Limit on your regular wager. Feel free to wager as many of your points as you wish on the regular game. There is a bet limit on the bonus game, however.

3. You are allowed to make your finale wager in secret if you so desire, by sending me a private message. If you want to keep opponents guessing, it might not be a bad idea. I'm going to post my own picks on Friday night and will not change them afterwards, so don't worry about me reading them on Sunday.

I think I already know who I'm betting on anyway, so I might make the pick tomorrow instead.

Here's the finale payout table!

Finale Payout Table
1st place - 2x
2nd place - 1.3x
3rd place - .7x
4th place - 0x

Max Individual Bet - NO LIMIT

I Dare You! I dare you to do your very best this week! Go go go!

Once again, this is based on the ranks at the finish line, with 4th going to the team that may be eliminated before the final leg. Normally, with 3 teams, I do a 2x/1x/0x distribution, so I tried to space out the 4 ranks as much as possible.

And now for everyone's favorite bonus game...

One in a "Million"

In this game, players may wager on which team will say the word "million" first. As always, variations of the word will count, such as "millions", "millionaires", or "badabadabadamillionbadabadabada". All we're looking for is M-I-L-L-I-O-N to be spoken by them.

The recaps don't count as part of the episode, and if none of the teams ever say it (it has happened once before), then no answer is correct and all bonus wagers score 0x. We have 4 teams this year as opposed to 3, so I'd expect one of them says it at least.

"Million" Payout Table
Correct Answer - 4x
Incorrect Answer - 0x

Max Bet - 300 points

As you can see, the million bonus is a +900 venture, so there is some serious dough that can be made. Choose carefully.

TAR20 Teams Remaining
Art/J.J.
Brendon/Rachel
Rachel/Dave
Vanessa/Ralph

Good luck! Don't forget to PM me your picks if you want!


Actually, I'm kind of glad there's no F4 episode because I had no idea what I was going to do for a bonus game this week.
