But sometimes folks defy those odds and don't just survive the week, they keep surviving. Eventually they are eliminated - but they come back and keep coming back.
Those weeks add up.
In the case of these two individuals, sometimes they add up to over 100 Weeks!
Back during Heroes vs Villains, the first two Survivor contestants passed the "100 days" mark of competing. It was a big deal. It was at that point that I decided that we should start celebrating the "100 Weeks Club" here at Idol. There are currently no members of the 200 Weeks Club and despite having 3 contestants vying for the "most weeks" survived distinction currently in the mix, we will not be getting any members for that club this season regardless of how well they do.
100 Weeks though - we have a few people who are coming up to that mark. Two of them had actually passed it before this season started, but I wanted to wait until the end of Week 1 to make it official.
To be honest, I thought that I had already announced them during the mini season. But I looked and apparently I hadn't, because I didn't even have their final totals.
So congratulations to two legendary figures in the Idolverse (and incredible writers) - rayaso (this is actually officially 115 weeks!) and messygorgeous (who officially has 107)!
Welcome to the Club! (unless of course I already have welcomed you and just can't find that post for some reason. :D)
