LAST EDITED ON 10-03-09 AT 08:47 PM (EST)Week 3 ~ “It’s called a Russell Seed”
There’s a whole lotta movin’ and shakin’ and general wave action going on in the POOL ! Congratulations goes to Molaholic and DearAbby who propelled themselves to the top of the Leaderboard by correctly guessing that their survivor would have NO confessionals. That, my guppies, is worth 50 points a piece! Well done, you two!
Welcome back to some of my perennial favorite players Kermit the Vixen and Corvis! Glad to have you back in the pool this season! To anyone else, it is still not too late to dive into the Office Pool this season! Jump on in – the water’s fine!!
Amazingly, none of you picked the Med-evacutee Mike or the Bootee Betsy. Therefore, you are all safe once again from being ejected from the Pool. Nice going!
Remember, we are making it simple in the Pool this year. The ONLY way to earn points is as follows:
Picking Order- first pick gets the most points and last pick only gets one point;
Correctly guessing the number of confessionals your survivor has during the episode. You will receive 10 points for each confessional. If you guess “No” confessionals for your Survivor and they have none, you will get 50 points, but you must write the words “No confessionals” in your post.
Your Survivor has the Title Quote: 25 pts.
Finally there will be two bonus opportunities each week. First bonus will be worth 35 points. The next bonus will be worth negative –25 points.
The only week we will have other opportunities to earn more points will be in the last week before the Final Tribal Council.
The Week's POINTS:
+10X the number of Confessionals for Hit-the-Nail-on-the-Head Bonus: Kircon - 20 points; and Molaholic and DearAbby - 50 points each for NO confessionals.
+35 First shown in credits: Jaison
+25 Title Quote: “Taking Candy from a Baby”: Yasmin
-25 Last shown in credits: Erik
Confessional Counts: I count each time the survivor is shown in a confessional. If a survivor is in a confessional and is talking and the camera goes back and forth showing others and then back to the original survivor talking, I will count that survivor in confessional multiple times.
NO Confessionals: Russell S., Erik, Kelly, John, Dave, Natalie
1 Confessional: Shambo, Monica
2 Confessionals: Ben, Laura
3 Confessionals: Elizabeth, Ashley
4 Confessionals: Jaison, Betsy, Yasmin, Mike
5 Confessionals: Mick
14 Confessionals: Russell H.
