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."

Much U-Turn About Nothing

Look how witty that title is!

Look at it!

I have nothing else to say, just because I'm so pleased with myself for that title. And it pretty much speaks for itself anyway.

Week 5 Results
1st place - Pam/Winnie (2x)
2nd place - Max/Katie (1.5x)
3rd place - Mona/Beth (1.4x)
4th place - Bates/Anthony (1.1x)
5th place - Caroline/Jennifer (.9x)
6th place - Joey/Meghan (.5x)
7th place - Chuck/Wynona (.4x)
8th place - Dave/Connor (0x)

I just noticed that I accidentally mis-labeled 6th and 7th place (meant to do .6x and .5x). Although I accidentally gave too many payout points last year, so I guess it evens out.

Level Grind

This was definitely one of those "grind it out" kind of weeks, where the large majority of players gained points overall... But nobody really broke the bank. We all just had really solid but unspectacular weeks. Nothing wrong with that, I guess, especially after a shake-out last week.

The Greatest Gainer Award goes to bystander and jbenz, who both climbed a cool 5 ranks this week. Nicely done.

The Perfect Bet Award goes to jbenz who snagged a whopping 3x payout using a risky loan wager. Georjanna (2.5x) also had a very nice payout. Way to go, you guys!

KwietOne is hanging onto his lead, but the crowd behind him is catching up... With these new credit cards floating around, who knows what could happen?

Week 6 Payout Table
1st place - 2x
2nd place - 1.7x
3rd place - 1.3x
4th place - Break even
5th place - .7x
6th place - .3x
7th place - 0x

Max Individual Bet - 60 points
Credit Limit - 50 points
Interest Rate - 20%

Bumping up the interest to 20% this week, just to see what happens.

Bonus Game - PATty Cake

Time for an oldie-but-goodie. It's time for PAT!

PAT stands for the Painfully Average Team which is the team that finishes right smack in the middle of the pack. They are neither awesome, nor sucky. They're just kinda there. For this week, with 7 teams remaining, that'll be the team that finishes in 4th place.

So you're essentially placing a wager on which team will finish 4th. If you're right, you get a huge payout. If you're wrong you lose the bet. This is a completely separate wager from your regular bet, though.

But remember, you can't borrow points on your credit card, and put them on the PAT bonus game. If you're gonna play the bonus, you gotta spend your own points.

You may also only make one bonus wager, so it's an all-or-nothing gamble.

PAT Payout Table
Correct Answer - 7x
Incorrect Answer - 0x

Max Bet - 10 points

So, with a +60 from this bonus game, you could really make up some ground. So choose carefully!

TAR22 Teams Remaining
Bates/Anthony
Caroline/Jennifer
Chuck/Wynona
Joey/Meghan
Max/Katie
Mona/Beth
Pam/Winnie

Good luck!


Ugh, I can't believe I had bet 70 points on Pam/Winnie last week and then chickened out and went Bates/Anthony. Cost me first place.
