Results - Week 29

It was a week where there were a lot of people who were confused.

Which is why I decided early on that I knew what the results were going to be even before the votes came in, even before I tried to explain things with my fruit selling analogy.

I wasn't going to send *anyone* home this week.

This was going to be non-elimination, but filled with a good information.

For instance, I know now that there were 33 people (other than the contestants themselves) who were willing to dive into that confusion and send in votes. You might say "That's not alot Gary", But when you are talking about "who can I ask to read everything and send votes in via email", that's a better number than I thought it could end up being.

I won't announce who would be going home if I *had* pulled the trigger on this week, other than the say it WAS ALSO the person with the most popular entry overall. There were more "best overall" votes for that entry than anything else. But the total allocations would have ended up sending them home anyway.

It would have come down to a tie-breaker vote based on number of entries from 1 person that were tied at the bottom. But that would have been the result. So in other words, it came down to a single vote again...

I WILL answer the "where did my entries fall" from contestants via email.

I will also post everyone's MOST POPULAR entry. In fact, I'll do so right now...

The new topic is going up soon. But maybe there is something in that knowledge of what people liked the most that will be useful to you.

FRIST to say You Dirty Dawg!!!

Gaaah. After the angst of trying to figure out that balloting thing.

But... aw, I forgive you.

I am impressed by 33 (non-competitor) voters!!! I think that's fantastic!

Well, this was one crazy tenterhook...I have no idea why I'm surprised by that, though. ;)

Awwww, yay. That was such a hard decision picking the overall fave, so I'm really glad no one is going home. Everyone put in so much effort, and I enjoyed reading them all (even if I was a procrastinator who left things too close to the deadline, so I haven't gotten a chance to comment to everyone yet).

And I may not be a contestant, but the most popular vote entries tell me that my tastes apparently do not match the majority! xD

You too?

I woke up in the middle of the night thinking I had forgotten to send in my votes before I remembered that I did and got the confirmation email. Idol never woke me up when I was still a contestant.

I am a contestant, and most of mine didn't match, either. WELL THEN. :)

Whew! I am pleased to be saying no goodbyes this week; it would've been a killer way to end the long weekend.

Holy crap!! I was eating a late Labor Day dinner on the lake with my family and suddenly realized the results might be posted...needless to say this was quite the treat, to see that we all got to stay in the game for one more spin on the Idol-coaster!

I did wonder if this wouldn't be the case - - you never did tell us how many were going, after all! Glad I remembered to check, or I wouldn't have seen tonight's deadline!

All of you.

All of you are going.

Sep. 5th, 2017 05:58 pm (UTC)
Let me guess - - some of us sooner than others? :P

Do the 33 get participation trophies?

Or cookies, perhaps?

Or cookies in a participation trophy?

Just asking for a friend ... O:)

Seriously though, while it was a lot of reading, there were so many good things to read, that it never felt like I had to slog through to the end.

The fave choice for me, was tough at the start. I was keeping a running tally on paper for each contestant as I worked down the list, with a side note if a secondary submission poked at me. Then BAM, the one reached up and smacked me upside the head.
