Great new thread, Smile!
I'm really enjoying reading this and seeing how long all my sleuthing buddies have been sleuthing and on the boards. It's funny but although I feel like I'm been here forever, I officially joined the FORT to sleuth during Jesse's season, but starting participating on boards and becoming obsessed with insider clues and screencap analysis during Bob's season and then lurked entirely during Mere's season and probably would have been fooled by the Kelly Jo's edit if I didn't start reading the boards and understanding the edit and seeing what most casual viewers never see.
I have been correct in my picks every season, except I didn't watch the first one until the last few episodes and really thought he'd pick Trista just based on 2 episodes and no idea how this show really worked.
I have to say, that although I haven't missed since I started sleuthing and I had it figured out before the FRC screencaps came out (they are just great validation of what I had determined), quite a few of those I have NOT been a fan of, but I just have learned not to be swayed by the sentimetal edit that the producers want us to believe. If you do this, your stats will probably not be 100%. Geez, I sound like a snob ...I Don't mean it that way! I truly respect everyone's opinion, even when I don't agree.
This season has been a lot less predictable from a screencap analysis angle, so I have gone with how I see the edit and 'real' stories behind the edit and whatever I can find out about the girls in a legitimate way. Plus a big factor that helps endorce my pick is to see how the seasoned sleuths are determinnig their picks.. I really respect this fact in a huge way, not that I don't enjoy seeing the insight from new sleuths, it all figures in.
That being said, my pick is Bevin!
