Hello and welcome back to BBRAT!
Speed Round Alert: read below.
This game is all about points. Whether you want them or not is up to you, because eventually only two people (the highest and the lowest scorers) will be facing each other in a jury vote. Who will become the ultimate BBrat?
It is up to you!
Firstly, let's get to the week 7...
The Power Players
A. HOH ~ Nokomis
B. POV ~ Adria
C. POV use ~ Yes
The Challenge Arena
A. Food Challenge winner ~ Drew / Natalie / Adria / Karen / Diane / Cowboy / Nokomis
B. HOH/POV choice ~ Marvin
C. NOM's / POV choice ~ Cowboy / Drew
A. Noms ~ Adria / Natalie / Cowboy
B. Evictee ~ Natalie
C. Non-Evictee ~ Adria / Cowboy
and now to The Scoreboard:
**Official Week 7 results.**
I hope that this particular twist wasn't too harsh. But, once again I hid a message in the wk 7 entry. This message stated that the scores for the week were going to be in reverse. With a strong urging for you to do the worst you could, for that entry.
This was the "hidden" clue left in last weeks entry.
"Okay, back to the regular entry format."
"Uhoh! Did I just say regular! What I really meant was...
It may look regular but, this week you will be playing to the worst of your abilities...
In other words, the scores will be switched this week. If you get a question correct, you will receive negative points. If you get it wrong, you will recieve positive points.
So do your best, to be the worst!!! Your score depends on it."
**For future reference; I promise that there will only be one more hidden message in the remainder of entries.
Which week is your guess, but be on the lookout.
With the "Do your Worst" twist added, the scores were a little wiggy this week.
I believe that my dearest bdemoney was charmed with her guesses. As that under normal situations, her guesses would have put most bbrats to shame.
She somehow managed to get, dead on; the HOH, the POV, both NOM's, the Evictee and the Non-Evictee. WOW!!!!
I hate having to say this....However, as mentioned, it was more important to stink this week. I'm so soorry bd.
So, to start in "reverse", bdemoney takes the weekly low score lead.
On the other end yensid, VikingCrown and EnglProf battled long and hard to do the worst they could, yet yensid snags the worst picks total.
I have to say, I'm happy.
Only because, I haven't seen positive scores like that in weeks.
So yensid gets the HOH Bonus, getting an additional +5 points.
All those with +14(or below) get snagged with the PB&J Penalty.
Just to add insult to injury, barb. Again, I feel badly. But maybe this will help with the votes later.
Weekly HOH winner:
yensid total= +29(+5)= +34
EnglProf total= +25
VikingCrown total= +25
Captain Savem total= +23
Rebel Crown total= +21
minitroll total= +10(-3) +7
Steen total= +8(-3) =+5
Nikamo total= -2(-3)=-5
bdemoney total= -25(-3)=-28
**The Official Game Totals**:
Because of the drastic twist. A lot of movement on the final scores took place. VikingCrown snags the top spot from minitroll.
EnglProf, finally breaks the top 3.
And my dearest bdemoney makes a huge blunder yet turns in huge gains, giving Steen some actual competition.
VikingCrown = (+9)+25 = +34
RebelCrown= (+10)+21 = +31
EnglProf = (+4)+25 = +29
mintroll = (+13)+7 = +20
yensid = (-16) +34= +18
Captain Savem = (-42)+23 = -19
Nikamo = (-50)-5 = -55
bdemoney = (-46)-28 = -74
Steen = (-157)+5 = -152

BB Reality Aptitude TestVol.1.4
New Entrants are encouraged to join. At any time.
This game will be run on a point basis. Points are something you will want (or not want).
There will be picks to make, points to gain, points to lose and points to give away.
There will be only one winner to this game.
The one with the most points and the one with the least points, will face off in a jury vote.
Who will be the biggest BBRAT?!
You will decide!
Deadline for entries will be each Thursday, at beginning of showtime, 8pm EDT (5pm PDT).
Those who enter after the deadline will not be considered. You are allowed to edit your post at anytime up to the Thursday deadline.
The game will start with the prediction of HOH and end with the prediction of the evictee. From Thurs. to Thurs. All predictions will be made regarding the next weeks episodes.
I will try to post the new entry thread every Friday. The points will be given out when all challenges and questions have been resolved, a week later.
The HOH bonus goes to the person who has gotten the highest score. This winner will receive +5 bonus points.
The penalty is given to/taken from all folks with fewer than half of the winners weekly point total. This penalty will be -3 points.
If a question is correct you will receive the points alloted in the parentheses after each question. These points are subject to change but not without notice. If you are wrong with your choices you will receive the equivalent points but in negative increments.
If a question is deemed unanswerable. I will most likely decide to make the question worth nil (0). If a question is answered with an evicted HG, I will make the question worth (0)
In questions that ask you to name a HG, please use names only. IOW: "Everyone", "None" or "No one" are not acceptable answers.
Quitters: quitters are tolerated, to a certain degree.
After 4 missed entrys, I will remove you from the roster. If you choose to play again, that is great. Points start at 0. If you decide not to, that's okay too. Just don't expect to win.
Upon thee, Mike Darnell, I wish a most serious pox.
