    Re: Season 12 Prediction Game

    Week Three Results!

    Argh. Not only do I need my own mulligan due to a craxxy day at work (not bad, just busy and weird), but they also changed it up again and didn't give us a clear bottom three!

    The Results

    Safe: Amber Amber Holcomb, Devin Velez
    Going home: Paul Jolley

    I really don't want to make a joke about it not being a Jolley day, but it's kind of the low-hanging fruit...

    ANYWAY, with much LESS of the voting exposed (WHY Seacrest, why do you mess with me so??) and no clear "first safe", there will only be 20 points up for grabs this week, as Amber and Devin are both in the "safe" slots and will both grant 1 bonus point. Hey Idol, just give me a freakin' bottom three!!! Please?

    On to the entries!

    Arielflies: Burnell Taylor, Lazaro Arbos, Paul Jolley = 8
    echo226: Burnell Taylor, Amber Holcomb, Paul Jolley = 14
    Gutmutter: Devin Velez, Lazaro Arbos, Paul Jolley = 14
    I<3JAY: Amber Holcomb, Lazaro Arbos, Paul Jolley = 14
    jammyjoe: Devin Velez, Burnell Taylor, Paul Jolley = 14
    Magnum: Burnell Taylor, Paul Jolley, Devin Velez = 10
    Misty8723: Burnell Taylor, Lazaro Arbos, Paul Jolley = 8
    NFL1: Devin Velez, Lazaro Arbos, Paul Jolley = 14
    norm: Amber Holcomb, Paul Jolley, Burnell Taylor = 11
    r2maybs: Paul Jolley, Burnell Taylor, Devin Velez = 10
    razorbacker: Amber Holcomb, Devin Velez, Paul Jolley = 20
    roundtopretreat: Amber Holcomb, Paul Jolley, Devin Velez = 16
    TeacherLady: Burnell Taylor, Lazaro Arbos, Paul Jolley = 8
    Tigerusty: Amber Holcomb, Paul Jolley, Lazaro Arbos = 11
    TNKY: Devin Velez, Burnell Taylor, Paul Jolley = 14
    VAGirl79: Amber Holcomb, Paul Jolley, Burnell Taylor = 11
    Vote4Makar: Devin Velez, Lazaro Arbos, Paul Jolley = 14
    xmaskat: Burnell Taylor, Amber Holcomb, Paul Jolley = 14
    zanthia: Burnell Taylor, Devin Velez, Paul Jolley = 14

    We have our first perfect guess of the year this week! Congratulations razorbacker!!!!

    That perfect score was enough to take the lead, and here's how the scores rack up!

    Leaderboard

    1 - razorbacker 36
    2 - TeacherLady 35
    3 - jammyjoe 34
    4 - xmaskat 34
    5 - NFL1 33
    5 - VAGirl79 33
    5 - zanthia 33
    8 - i<3JAY 32
    9 - echo226 30
    9 - Gutmutter 30
    9 - jsciv 30
    9 - norm 30
    13 - TNKY 29
    14 - Vote4Makar 28
    15 - Arielflies 27
    15 - Magnum 27
    17 - Misty8723 25
    17 - Tigerusty 25
    19 - r2maybs 24
    19 - RoundTopRetreat 24
    21 - Helenmaco2 15
    22 - DezBelle 13
    23 - LalahLand 8

    With a perfect score, razorbacker vaults into first place, but only by the narrowest of leads! TeacherLady, jammyjoe, and xmaskat are still right in the thick of it, and the pack is only a few points back. With a four-way tie for ninth place, SOMEONE is bound to fall off of the tour bus, and it's probably going to be me, but I hope not! As the weeks go on everyone will need to be on their toes!!

    The Mulligan Week

    This is one of the most participatory games on FORT, and it can be tough with a busy life to keep up: so many times someone misses a single week and feels like they're out of it, and that can make the game less fun. Therefore this year I'll be trying out a new rule for scoring, the mulligan week.

    The way this works is that if you participate in more than 3 weeks over the life of the game, your lowest week's score will not count. If you miss a week, don't worry you're still in it. And if you don't miss a week, you can even have a disastrous week where you're unable to guess the bottom three, and it'll be wiped clean! It's an experiment, but I hope that this will take a bit of the pressure off and allow more people to participate, and everyone to have more fun!

    Perfect scores

    Many of us (probably myself included) might end up middle of the pack. But no matter how many or few times you guess, if you make a perfect score you go onto the season long honor roll of perfect guessers!

    Congratulations to this season's only perfect guess so far, razorbacker.

    Next guesses

    Next week we continue our usual format, though you never know what those tricksy producers will do to confuse me! You'll be guessing the bottom three vote-getters. The unique thing about Idol versus many other prediction games is that you will get to predict after seeing the performances for that week if you want! Guesses must be received here or via PM to me before the start of the live result show Thursday at 5pm PDT in the following format:

    First safe: TeacherLady
    Second safe: Tigerusty
    Going home: jsciv

    As a side note, next week I will be at a business conference, so the results will be posted on Monday, April 1, not on Friday the 29th.

    Good luck to everyone!!!

    I might join in this week just for kicks...finally will have Internet at home after 5 years without it. I like the mulligan week idea.

    Thanks jsciv. That number 9 spot is making that bus very back heavy () ... I hope the weight in that area and the movement does't break an axle!

    This next one is going to be harder.

    Congratulations razoubacker ... and all the close runners up.

    Woo Hoo, as the old saying goes, even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. So, as the extremely tentative first place person, I will now claim my spot right next to the keg, & only begrudgingly will I vacate as the season progresses & I find myself in all likely hood lugging the luggage for the winners once again.

    Then you'd better watch out for all of us blind squirrels in the back of the bus!

    Well, I'm still standing next to the keg, holding the red Solo cups...

    Thank you, jsciv! So much fun.

    The fun bus is also stuffed to the gills, we may have to pull a beetle out of retirement and see how many we can stuff in there.

    Goodness this is a tough week. There are five that I think are possible bottom 3, but I'll stick my neck out & say:

    1st Safe: Amber
    2nd Safe: Burnell
    Leaving us to the strains of Phillip Phillips in another week where Lazjaya strikes again: Devin
