It feels like forever since we were here, due to the extended week. I'll admit, it made it easier to ignore the fact that we would be losing more people this week.
Looking at the group that ended up going, it's tempting to go back in time and further extend that week. But unfortunately, I haven't found that time machine yet.
It's a mixture of newbies and veterans, which seems to be how every week has gone so far.
But before we get to the unpleasantness - there is an upside to the week. We are eliminating 9 contestants this week. Which isn't good, except for one aspect of it. That means there wasn't a tie this week. There were a few that came really close, but in each tribe there is someone leaving us. The upside of that is that Tribe Redemption was lasting as long as there was a tie. So for anyone stuck in that group, you will be in your new grouping next week. Congratulations, you survived!
Which isn't much of an upside for most, but I'm trying to find the silver lining here, so work with me people!!
The contestants leaving us this week are:
Like I said, several veterans, and promising newbies, on that list, including our next to youngest contestant of the season. Not sure who is the youngest now, off the top of my head.
I really hope that all of them will continue to participate in the Home Game, and show up in the Green Room to hang out, and cheer other people on. After all, you can never be too sure what is going to happen next, and there is traditionally a point to re-enter the competition, somewhere along the way!
