    Here is the Memory Wall. I'll be updating this each episode with the HGs scores and update their status in the house as active or evicted.

    Thanks for everyone participating so far. Everyone's lists look good (I mostly look for 16 names, no doubles, etc.). I haven't noticed any specific trends in popularity so far, but I do make a comprehensive post outlining it based on the players that sign up, so you can look forward to that. I always love seeing who are especially popular and unpopular and how they end up turning up by the end. Lydia is a great example, she was super popular pre-show, by the end I think she lost most of her fanbase as a whole.

    Snapit, once you submit the list, you just wait until I release all the teams. This pool as a whole is very low maintenance. I strive to get everyone at least 3 of their Top 5 (and ideally Top 3 for Top 3 but that's harder for obvious reasons), but if a HG is particularly unpopular and not enough people even rank him/her high enough, then I have to go beyond and see who ranks the unpopular ones the highest. The more participants, the easier it is for me because it gives me more options to move things around.

    Re: Big Brother 16 Pool - The Alliance

    I finally sent you my pool picks Jahim. I think I would have changed them another 10 times if I had not said to myself enough already. I thought I was putting them in favorites order but realized that some of my decisions were based upon who I thought would get kicked out first. If I were smart, I would have totally reversed my order before pming you since that's about how good I am at these kind of pools.

    Thanks so much for doing this. I can hardly wait to see who is on my leaderboard.

    Edited to add: Thank God for Excel and Sort. I'm such a nerd. I should have put Nicole higher.

    Re: Big Brother 16 Pool - The Alliance

    I'm in, too. It was fun to read the profiles and imagine who was going to be able to last in the house. Initially I made a spreadsheet and gave each person a 1, an 8 or a 16. Then I narrowed down the 1's into 1-7, etc. It made it much easier to come up with a complete list. And I have to confess that I just randomly sorted a few of those lists once I had done the preliminary scores. This pool will make following this season of Big Brother even more interesting.

    If any of you are planning to join the pool, this is a good day to send Jahim your list!

    Here's a list to keep handy when you do your sorting:

    Derrick Levasseur, 30 Hometown: Providence, R.I. Current City: Providence, R.I. Occupation: Police Sergeant
    Devin Shepherd, 26 Hometown: Santa Barbara, Calif. Current City: San Antonio, Texas Occupation: Former Professional Baseball Player / Motorcycle Sales Manager
    Donny Thompson, 42 Hometown: Albemarle, N.C. Current City: Albemarle, N.C. Occupation: School Groundskeeper
    Frankie Grande, 31 Hometown: Boca Raton, Fla. Current City: New York, N.Y. Occupation: YouTube Personality

    Re: Big Brother 16 Pool - The Alliance

    Thanks for the list Cootie. Cut/Paste works well with it, then you know you never double someone up (and inherently drop another off). I am happy to report we're up to 10 players so far. So I don't have to go profile to profile begging to at least have enough players to make the game minimally work. I really would love even more people to sign up however. The more people who sign up, the easier everything is to put together. Also, if anyone wants to play and maybe isn't interested in a ranking list, you can just roll the dice and take on the unpopulars/a random selection and that's fine by me too.
