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."

Weather Permitting

You just knew, the moment they commented on the whole "weather permitting" condition for the Fast Forward, it was going to become a thing. Meanwhile, this week's Roadblock was a horrifying one for those of you who can't sing (like your host, here). See Tim or Danny (whichever one?) have to struggle through that song was painful, and I fully sympathize with him. I would've probably tried to ham it up all operatic style like Jamal and Leo.

Week 6 Results
1st place - Travis/Nicole (2x)
2nd place - Nicky/Kim (1.7x)
3rd place - Leo/Jamal (1.4x)
4th place - Tim/Marie (even)
5th place - Jason/Amy (.6x)
6th place - Ally/Ashley (.3x)
7th place - Tim/Danny (0x)

Boosted into Space

...Well, uh, this is extremely awkward.

I guess the way I'll put it, is that scores weren't that good in general this week. Tim/Marie and Jason/Amy's 4th or 5th place finishes seem pretty innocuous, but for all of the players who did a max boost this week, it zeroed out a lot of scores.

Of the 23 players surviving from last week, we lost 10 this week: Georjanna, ARNutz, vennui, esquire, KwietOne, Starshine, flipxcyd, adricharlie, Estee, and floyd2. As someone who suffered a huge loss in points myself, I can definitely relate to that sickening feeling as Tim/Marie stayed longer and longer at that Roadblock. Thanks for playing, all of you!

This week's Greatest Gainer Award, ironically, goes to mikey and kduck, who both climbed 10 ranks overall after being absent for a week. So, good job, guys?

The Perfect Bet Award goes to sarah1234 (2.4x), who made a very clever booster wager on Tim/Marie. Way to go!

louislam has leaped into the Cursed #1 spot, once proudly held by the current Mr. Last Place Guy. Will louislam finally break the curse this week, or will it be deja vu all over again? We shall see.

Bonus Game - 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
Correct Answer - 5x
Incorrect Answer - 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 - Leo/Jamal and Tim/Marie

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

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

Good luck everyone!


So, I watched TAR on Monday night while I was keeping tabs on the Monday Night football game (since I have Aaron Rodgers in my Fantasy League). It was not a very happy evening in the Jims02 household.
