    Question for all you knowledgeable players. Just because you only got fourteen of the fifteen doesnt mean you are out of contention for the grand prize, does it? If a few of the ten with perfect scores screw up on one of the next weeks' eliminations and you get them all correct, then you would move up to the top group - correct?
    I won one of the goody bags last season(Brad's season). This is how the marketing company that does the promotional prize giveaways explained it to me.
    Each week they give out a goody bag to one of the highest scorers that week. They select that person arbitrarily(like picking out of hat to simplify it). Should I have declined my prize, it would have gone on to one of the other highest winners that particular week, who they would have arbitrarily picked.

    The person or persons with the highest scores at the end are in contention for the grand prize and again--they go through an "arbitrary" way to arrive at that winner.
    So it goes by scores and the network decides by the scoring. Scoring is explained somewhere on the site.

    Theoretically, you're correct. But it doesn't play out that way in real life.....I can only recall one time when the board leaders didn't get F1 correct.

    But like others said, everyone has a chance of winning a goody bag still.

    You are really lucky - that is Robin (whose hair is not as red as Michelle's)

    Sounds like your husband might have the chance to take you to Barbados!

    That is really smart! LOL I should have had my mom, and 2 sisters playing it with me and we should have all put a different girl for the 15th girl so we could have a better chance at winning the trip!

    momoutoftime -- maybe your husband will win the trip and take you to Barbados!

    I got 14/15. Missed the last one by ONE letter (Michelle P, & I chose Michelle R). Didn't even make the high scorers' page.
