Vote - Week 19

A few words from clauderainsrm:


In the game of Friends and Rivals, there are friends - and there are rivals. Funny how that works out.

When it comes to the competition, they are often the same thing.

This week I asked everyone to get back into groups of 5, each of them taking a different topic as their inspiration.

I didn’t say “teams”. Which is what people were in earlier this season, helping each other get to the next stage. I said “groups”. I’m sure many, if not most, caught that distinction. It’s a clever bunch of people.

There are currently 15 contestants left, and I know there was a lot of different speculation about what would be happening this round and how many would be left.

I’ll answer the second part first: We are losing 3 contestants this time. Meaning that we will have our Top 12 when the poll officially closes.

Which may seem straight-forward about how that is going to happen, but it will be a little different than you might think:

All the scores of the group *will* be averaged together and those with the lowest vote totals will be leaving us - but in this fashion:

The group with the highest overall score will be SAFE. All of them.

The second highest will lose their contestant with the fewest votes.

The lowest will lose their two contestants with the lowest amounts of votes.


So it’s really important for you to make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites - and spread the word about anything awesome you find!

The poll closes Monday, April 25th at 9pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!

You managed to select an evil voting system I hadn't imagined but at the same time one that wasn't as evil as the one I imagined, so I have very mixed feelings.

This was way more evil than the one I imagined. You must have a much more villainous mind than I do. ;) (Teasing.)

Congratulations, Gary. I think you got us all. I know there were many conspiracies flying around about what form the twist would take, but this precise thing? Not a one of us guessed, so far as I know!

Well played, Gary. I didn't even guess this outcome (and yes, I caught the "group" thing too).

Good luck everybody!

TW: Math

You know, since all the groups have five members, you don't actually have to do the averaging.

Just sayin.
