Alas, that was not to be. HOWEVER, that does mean that everyone who did will advance to fight on another day.
There was one voluntary resignation: sheta_kaey has left our ranks as a contestant.
There were three who missed their second deadline and so are considered to have "quit": armageddonkitty, crushdmb and spiderandi.
Which means that before we even get to this week's elimination, the field has already lost 4.
It is about to lose a fifth.
There were two people who missed the deadline, and since the double eliminations don't start until NEXT week, one of them is safe.(unless they miss next week and then will be considered a quit.)
There will be a special vote coming soon. So keep your eyes open for that.
In the meantime, vote for which one of these folks to keep in the competition.
The poll opens now and you can vote until Monday Feb. 5th at noon EST.
(* NOTE: See comments. Both of them did turn in an entry after this poll went up, but missed the deadline and so are still up for possible elimination.)
