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."

So You Think You Can Polka!

Tony: "So, you're not gonna go to law school? What do you wanna do then?"
Mike: "I wanna dance!"

Making the teams do dances seems to be one of TAR's favorite tasks to do these days, especially since it has resulted in some of the most memorable meltdowns. I wouldn't call this polka a huge meltdown, but it certainly led to some interesting visuals during it. Honestly, my biggest highlight was that super-long apartment building, just for the sheer weirdness of it.

Week 5 Results
1st place - Tim/Marie (2x)
2nd place - Jason/Amy (1.8x)
3rd place - Travis/Nicole (1.6x)
4th place - Nicky/Kim (1.2x)
5th place - Tim/Danny (.8x)
6th place - Leo/Jamal (.4x)
7th place - Ally/Ashley (.2x)
8th place - Brandon/Adam (0x)

Boost or No Boost

This week proved to be a little tricky overall, with the range of bets being all over the place. Jason/Amy were the most popular pick overall, netting a lot of players a nice 1.8x payout. Tim/Marie fetched a decent number of wagers too, netting some nice Booster payouts. Brandon/Adam's last place finish set quite a few people back, however, even knocking a few players out of the game.

Speaking of which, we did lose a few players this week: MzTee, chiubakka, Snidget, jbenz, and Molaholic. You would think that Brandon/Adam, after finishing 1st before the TBC, wouldn't fall to the very back of the pack... Darn bunching. Thanks for playing everyone!

This week's Greatest Gainer Award goes to Georjanna, who climbed 9 ranks to land in the Top 3 for the week. Now that's a big change in fortune!

The Perfect Bet Award also goes to Georjanna (2.88x), who narrowly edged out taffnic (2.86x) for the prize. Both players benefited great from some nice Booster bets.

The great and handsome and wonderful and handsome Jims02 has leaped into the top spot for the week, where he will most likely remain for the rest of the season. Especially with potential 4x payouts each week, he's definitely got this thing in the bag.

...I'll last one week.

Bonus Game - It's PAT!

Like the tides or the sunset, we are in an never-ending cycle of playing the PAT bonus game. Maybe it's more like a Groundhog's Day loop.

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.

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 - 15 points

Usually I make the bonus worth about the amount of a normal bet, but I'm upping the limits this year with the Booster in play.

TAR23 Teams Remaining
Ally/Ashley
Jason/Amy
Leo/Jamal
Nicky/Kim
Tim/Danny
Tim/Marie
Travis/Nicole

Good luck everyone!
