When I created the game and the scoring scheme, I never realized the scores would be so close!!!! 500 points is the difference between first & second!!!
For most of the game, funnygirl & SurvivorGirl recieved the same amount of points. There were only 4 legs in the entire game where their scores were different -- legs 1, 2, 7, & 12.
The key leg for funnygirl & SurvivorGirl was in leg 7. SurvivorGirl only scored 500 points in that leg (for owning Chip/Kim), however funnygirl recieved the full score for that leg (500 points for owning Chip/Kim, 1000 points for not owning Charla/Mirna, & a 500 point bonus for a perfect leg -- 2000 points total -- 1500 more points than SurvivorGirl for that leg). In leg 12 however, funnygirl recieved no points (she does not own Brandon/Nicole and she owns Linda/Karen) and SurvivorGirl recieved 1000 points for not owning Linda/Karen. So as you can see, SurvivorGirl fell short by only 500 points!!!
In leg 1, funnygirl scored no points (she does not own Alison/Donny and she owns Dennis/Erika) and SurvivorGirl scored 1000 points (for not owning Dennis/Erika). If SurvivorGirl had initally picked Alison/Donny as a co-ed team instead of Jim/Marsha (which produced no extra score anyways), then SurvivorGirl would of been the winner by 500 points instead of funnygirl as she would have scored 500 for Alison/Donny's first place victory and an additional 500 for a perfect leg. But by the time SurvivorGirl changed to Alison/Donny it was too late to reap any benefits from them.
Leg 2 is much more simpler to explain. Funnygirl scored 1000 points (she does not own Brandon/Nicole nor Alison/Donny) and SurvivorGirl scored no points (she does not own Brandon/Nicole but she owns Alison/Donny).
All in all, funnygirl and SurvivorGirl should be congratulated -- they picked a very strong and long-lasting roster and made good use of their favorite as well.
