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."

Big 'Ol Ice Cubes

It was interesting seeing those giant ice planks they had to lug during the Detour. If only we had those things up here during the winter time when we were younger... We could make ice mansions with those things. I was less jealous of their Roadblock task, however, with all those kids and all those balloons. Yeesh, that would have been tough.

Amy & Daniel ended up being eliminated, being a victim of a bad cab driver. Their elimination is really annoying because they were consistently in the front of the pack, but screwed by just one bad taxi. Ugh.

Week 1 Results
1st place - Nadiya/Natalie (2x)
2nd place - Trey/Lexi (1.6x)
3rd place - James/Jaymes (1.5x)
4th place - Abbie/Ryan (1.3x)
5th place - Josh/Brent (1.1x)
6th place - James/Abba (.9x)
7th place - Caitlin/Brittany (.7x)
8th place - Rob/Kelley (.5x)
9th place - Gary/Will (.4x)
10th place - Amy/Daniel (0x)

Getting There

Week 2 was a bit of a mixed bag, but certainly better than Week 1 for most players. You can tell already this is going to be an interesting season for the TAR Casino Game, because it seems kinda difficult to nail down who the safe picks are going to be from week to week. James/Jaymes recovered nicely this week, but who knows when they'll randomly implode again?

We had 3 new players join this week, Starshine, Floyd, and beau_30. Welcome aboard!

Unfortunately, we did lose one player this week. Along with Amy & Daniel, Molaholic was a victim of their crappy cabbie. It's always a bummer to see an early exit to the game, so I wanna offer a big THANKS! for playing. And I wanna offer a whole lot of complimentary cocktails in the Casino lounge!

The Greatest Gainer goes to the player each week who jumps up the leaderboard the most number of ranks. For Week 1, this award goes to Georjanna, who climbed 11 ranks all the way to the Top 5. That ain't too bad at all, in my humble opinion.

The Perfect Bet goes to the player who makes the "best" bet each week, as judged by my fancy Excel spreadsheet. This award also goes to Georjanna (2x), who doubled-up (plus rounding) on a sneaky Nadiya/Natalie bet. Nadiya & Natalie weren't an overly popular pick, so big props for picking them out!

flipxycd maintains the lead with a pretty decent cushion as well, but the players are starting to group up in the Top 10. And it's still super early, so we've got a long way to go!

New Players Still Welcome!
