Fantasy Idol week 2

Okay, sorry for the delay in getting this posted. Being fairly new to idol I thought we were still on the tues,wed,thursday cut 2 each schedule. Just now watching it on tivo now before I go to work. Someone correct me if I am wrong but now the cuts are today(wednesday) instead of tomorrow right?Also, from what I am gathering there is only one cut per week for now on as well? Anyways, the deadline for your picks is before the show starts. Some people live in the Philipines and at a bit of a disadvantage time wise, so I think the honor system will more than suffice. Suz and SWF already submitted their picks for this week in LAST weeks comments section since I was delayed in getting this post up. MY fault not theirs.

First a recap of week one scores:

Gypsy: -40
Michael: -140
Me: -150
Suz: -170
SWF: -540

Week two was in my opinion overall AWFUL for the most part. Any number of people could be going home especially seeing how last week's wacky voting went. It will be interesting to see what happens. I myself have NO idea. Okay, shutting up now. Submit your picks in comments.

NOTE: SWF,and Suz, No reason to resubmit them I got em.

Have fun and good luck.

Thanks for the consideration, BD. I almost missed the show tonight, and finally caught the last replay but not before the 1st 3 performances (though I had a chance to catch Melinda's awesome performance on youtube.).

My picks to move on: Melinda, Lakisha, Chris Sligh, Chris Richardson, Blake Lewis, Jordin, Stephanie

Going: Sanjaya (I swear I'll slap myself if it's Haley, I'm tempter to choose her to go!)

Overall Idol: Melinda, baby!

I just felt like crashing the party. I have no picks because..dun dun dun dunnnnnnnnnn I don't watch idol. I'm such a rebel. lol

I do however love betting on who will win things so I'm backing Michael in the overall contest. That's right, a contest within the contest. MWHAHAHAHAH...

I've had too much sugar today. Ignore me.

SWF41 said...

I haven't picked an overall winner yet because I can't make up my mind. I will - eventually.

Maybe I can get back to zero this week! woo hoo!

Suz said...

Correct me if I'm wrong, BD (because we are playing a slightly different version on my other boards), but if we choose an Ultimate Idol, we will not get penalties, AND we can change our weekly pick, right?

I'd like a little clarification on your points system for the ultimate winner portion of the game, if you don't mind. :)

(And I think SWF41 could use some too)!

I too, am looking to get toward even this week, SWF! :D

hey ariel, i'll take that bet, you're gonna regret, cause christine's the pick for me! (ya gotta love a girl who posts a cheesecake recipe, especialy since it was the first time i've visited her blog, she must have known i was gonna be by!
heya bd! anything in particular going through your mind right now?

Bice said...

No idea who is going home but I predict it will come down to Melinda and Lakisha.

briliantdonkey said...

SWF & Suz: You are correct Suz there is NO penalty for picking an overall winner, and you can change it every week if you want to. However, the longer you stay with your overall winner choice the more points that pick is worth presuming that he/she moves on. Each week those points double from what you received the prior week. If you change your pick you start over at 10 points for the first week,20 for the 2nd, 40 for the 3rd and so on. The only catch is if your overall winner gets sent home you can't win any more points in that category for the rest of the competition, but you DON'T lose any points already accumulated. Hope that clarifies the confusion. If not let me know and I will keep trying.

Heather: she's only been in my blogroll since day one of this blog. In fact she is to blame for getting me started on this whole blogging thang. Anything particular on my mind? No not really, unless "why the HELL isn't anyone betting on ME" counts! Or perhaps "I shoulda bribed someone with cheesecake"......Other than that SHOULD there be something on my mind?

Ariel: Betting on the competition on the competition. Gamblers Anon=1800-Lose-Bet. Don't ask me how I know.

Bice: Both very good picks and probably my top two as well but I went with Jordin in a small upset/stepping out on a limb. Judging by last night I am glad I did.

*i was hoping to get you humming a little charlie daniel's band....oh well. guess i'll have to work on that. lol*

christine said...

Gah! I cheated and did a quick research online to see who got voted off and now I regret it (makes my watching the replay tonight after work less exciting - NOT for any other particular reason).

Heather, way to put on the pressure! lol jk. Hey, if you win this, I might just email you a slice. :) Thanks for dropping by the blog, btw.

briliantdonkey said...

ahhhhhh "I'll take that bet your gonna regret" I missed that reference the first time,,,,and the joke flew over my head about 12 times before running out of gas and crashing into it. I got it now though, lol. Good news is, I am not the only one that has to splain my jokes sometimes I guess.

Suz said...

Woohoo! I'm only -90 now! lmao!

One thing I still don't "get" about the ultimate winner pick. If I choose different people each week, when we get to the end, do I get 10 pts for each time I picked that person (if I didn't pick the winner for consecutive weeks). As an example: If I choose Melinda/Lakisha every other week, would I get 10 pts for each week I picked Lakisha if she wins?

Er whut? :p

You aren't playing it by my rules, dammit! ;) J/K!

heather said...

christine, i'll make it my new desktop background. going shopping in the am, will be making that cheesecake by noon!
it's a good thing you missed it, i'd worry alot more if we thought alike more often than we already do!! lol

briliantdonkey said...

Suz: you get 10 pts this week for picking Lakisha as ultimate Idol. If you had stayed with Melinda you would get 20 pts for that this week. You do NOT lose the 10 from last week by changing. Each week's scores are set in stone and can't be taken away. I for instance stuck with Jordin, and therefore get 20 pts in that category. Next week if I stick with her again and she moves on it will be 40. OR I can change my mind to lakisha and get 10 pts next week for that category. Basically the earlier you named your ultimate Idol the more points you will get if they DO win it all. BTW, I have you down for overall score of negative 70 not negative 90. See the breakdown post.

Heather: that IS something you should be worried about. Worry not though, should it become a problem I have an old spare white jacket with the fancy buckles in the back you are welcome to borrow.
