Still working out on the kinks? What is Ray Davies doing in your house anyway, and why do you have him doing exercises?
If you are like me, you spent last night passed out drunk and had to find your way home this morning, from a city you have never been before, in a room full of naked people you don't recall ever meeting.
But if you aren't - then maybe you saw the announcements that went up yesterday - http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/407352.html , the special powers that have now entered the game just in time for Phase 2 and of course the Second Chance Idol - http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/407687.html
Just a couple notes on SCI: There are no byes and the special powers in the actual game cannot be used to influence anything over there. At the end of it, there will be two groups of people - those eliminated and those "back" in the real competition!
But yes, people coming into the game *is* going to impact that "using your byes" strategy. You might have to get by without them/use them sparingly for a little longer than you thought! (or shorter if enough people, frightened of their positions in the tribes, opt for taking the gamble of moving over to a second chance position! I guess we will see!!)
That's just one of the implications going forward! It should be fun!
Speaking of fun - keep in mind that the main competition is gearing back up soon! The break is almost over, and it's back into the thick of it!!
edit to add - The special powers thread is being updated to reflect the contestants who have received those powers, as they are officially recognized.
