Fresh off a week where we asked ""What does narcissism have to do with me?" followed by pushing back the deadline, I think it's pretty obvious what is going on next.
It's been talked about for quite some time. Sometimes it's been a joke. Sometimes it's been a threat.
This time though, "Gary Only Voting"
is absolutely not happening.
It's a standard poll. Everyone can vote.
Before we get to it though, we have some sad business to handle.
This week, there were two drop outs. (People who decided that, due to RL issues, that they needed to drop out of the competition):
There were also some that ended up being "bye-out"s. It happens. Sometimes, despite your best intentions, you just never gain your footing in the competition and miss a few entries early on.
Unlike last week, these are people that we have met - and read - before. Which makes it a little bit harder to know that we won't be seeing anything more from them.
That said, it only comprises roughly half of the people eligible to "bye out" this round, which means that the rest of them were able to show up with an entry this week, and keep up their fight to stay in.
Which gives me hope that other people putting themselves into that same situation over the last couple of weeks will be able to do the same!
Those leaving us this week are:
It is sad, but it also puts everyone else that much closer to the Top 250 of this season.
This poll is already going up a little later than usual, so I'll go ahead and post this rather than boring you with more details - other than the standard:
The contestant with the entry that receives the fewest votes, in each tribe, will be eliminated.
The poll closes Thursday November 17th at 10pm EST, so get to reading! (and commenting, and of course, voting!)
Good luck to everyone!
