Results - Week 22

We've established that this is going to be painful every week, so it won't come to any surprise to see 2 long-time favorite veterans leaving us this week.

I will say that until the last refresh, I was thinking it was going to be a 5-way tie for that last spot. I think if the poll closed at 9:01 that may have ended up being the case.

But we don't live in that reality. We live in this one.

This reality also had a really tight race for who the Jury was going to award Immunity to this week. It was a 3-way tie until a last minute vote showed up to break it! (with 5 contestants being 1 vote away from making that a 8-way tie). Ultimately though, that vote tipped halfshellvenus into Immunity! Congratulations!

Which means now we get to the bad part, saying goodbye.

As I said, they are both long-time veterans, members of the 100 Week Club and dirty hippies. I'm really glad that they are going to be on the Jury, because they are definitely folks that I want to have around to help shape the rest of this season. Hopefully we will continue to see them in the Green Room and writing for the Home Game as well!

I've been saying this for awhile, but seriously - this is the point in the competition where you need to bring your "A-game" every week. Anyone can go at any time!

Work Room - Week 23

I said it in the Topic post: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1028263.html

Which you haven't read it when I'm writing this, but I wanted to say it again:

"I've been saying this for awhile, but seriously - this is the point in the competition where you need to bring your "A-game" every week. Anyone can go at any time!"

There were 6 votes between being eliminated and the person with the most votes this week.

Let me say that again - 6 more people voted for the entry with THE MOST votes than did for one that sent someone home.

That is why it's important to spread the word, and that is why it's important, each and every week, to bring all you've got, because you may not have a "next week".
