LAST EDITED ON 04-09-14 AT 10:18 PM (EST) goes to a whole bunch of people who moved up 2 ranks this week. Congrats to: Georganna, IanQuentin, taffnic, sarah12345, MzTee, and bbenz.
No Room for Error
Thought it was interesting what Caroline & Jennifer said about how they finished last without making that many mistakes. They were actually right in a lot of ways... They ended up finishing last because they couldn't do the elephant task (because they got to the box last) and just happened to do the paper detour just a little slower than the other paper teams. And that was pretty much it.
Luckily for them, it was non-elimination, so no harm no foul.
Week 5 Results
1st place - Leo/Jamal (2x)
2nd place - Jet/Cord (1.6x)
3rd place - Jessica/John (1.3x)
4th place - Dave/Connor (even)
5th place - Brendan/Rachel (.7x)
6th place - Flight Time/Big Easy (.4x)
7th place - Caroline/Jennifer (0x)
This was an interesting week for the ignore feature. For a bunch of players, it ended up being a moot point again. But for several, most notably Dave/Connor bettors, it worked out pretty well. Leo/Jamal were ironically a popular ignore pick, so taking them out of the results worked out for a lot of people.
This week's Greatest Gainer Award
The Perfect Bet Award goes to michiganlargefan (1.65x), who made a nice Jet/Cord and Dave/Connor wager while ignoring Leo/Jamal. Very nicely done.

michiganlargefan has leapt into the lead with a pretty decent margin. The ignore teams look pretty spread out, so it'll be interesting to see how those lock-outs work out.

Shifted last week's table a little to keep things fresh. We'll see what happens!
Bonus Game - SAME or DIFFERENT
Usually we do this one a little later, but with all these non-elimination legs, this might be the last chance we get for awhile.
In this game, the object is to determine if each of the 7 teams is going to finish in the same rank as last week or in a different one. If you get all 7 of your predictions correct, you win. But if you get even one of your guesses wrong, then you'll lose your bet.
Same/Diff Payout Table
All 7 Correct - 30x
At Least 1 Incorrect - 0x
Max Bet - 10 points
Once again, I have no idea what the actual odds are, so I'm going to settle on it being a 30-to-1 shot. For the Final 5 last year, we did 20x and a few players did get it, so it might be worth throwing in the 10 points as a lotto ticket.
Remember, your wager is on the whole set of 7 teams, so it's an all-or-nothing thing. For example, a bonus bet might look like:
Bonus - 10 points
Leo/Jamal - DIFFERENT
Jet/Cord - SAME
Jessica/John - DIFFERENT
Dave/Connor - SAME
Brendan/Rachel - DIFFERENT
Flight Time/Big Easy - SAME
Caroline/Jennifer - DIFFERENT
Heck, you can even vote all 7 SAME or all 7 DIFFERENT if you want. It's up to you!
