I think the Tour needs a personality like Heejun so it would have been better if he left at #10. I prefer Jeremy over him but Jeremy, Shannon, and Jermaine are boring personalities so it's good they were gone. VFTW is currently keeping Heejun in there. I don't know if anyone here in the FORT is actually voting for him.
Late again, but it was for a good reason: I was visiting my seven-month-old nephews. I wonder if either of them is Idol material? I guess I'll find out in about 15 years!! But on to what happened last week before I left:
First Safe: DeAndre Brackensick
Second Safe: Heejun Han
Lowest Votes: Erika Van Pelt
Judges save not used.
You could tell that Heejun thought his joke had run its course. Apparently, America thought there was a laugh left. And poor Erika, after such a dramatic transformation, was his next (last?) victim.

We had several people correctly suss out the identities of the bottom three, but we also had our first perfect guess of the year; congratulations Gutmutter!!!
If you make a perfect guess any week during the run, your name will be underlined in the standings for the rest of the year, so it's never too late to get that perk and join Gutmutter!!!
Buoyed by the perfect guess, Gutmutter rockets up ten places on the charts into a tie for second as the lead narrows! Everyone with 15 points did a lot of climbing and there's also a little more shuffling around as some guesses were better than others. This race has some time to go and it's going to be an interesting one!!

Eeeeee! This is so much fun. Thank you jsciv. Your 7-month-old nephews sound adorable.
Count your blessings!
Wow! I'm actually on the bus! (I guess that partially makes up for the fact that Hee Jun is still in the competition!)
Thanks for all your hard work, jsciv.
I stand on the sidewalk & watch the bus depart without me. Hey, maybe Romney is driving & he can strap me to the roof.
razorbacker - you are more than welcome to crowd into the Hippie Bus. We always pick up hitchhikers.

Thanks again jsciv ... twin nephews, huh ?
And Congratulations, Gutmutter !

Congrats Gutmutter! I don't think in all the year's I've ever been this far at the front of the bus...pressure, to help navigate and keep the foot on the gas! I'll be away next week, so will try to make guesses even if I don't see the show! Good luck everyone!
