Vote - Week 21

A few words from clauderainsrm:

Welcome to Week 21, aka the Intersection, aka the new Merged Tribe! That's right, we've come a long way, but we are finally at the point of being one group!

One of these folks will become the next LJ IDOL! If that's not exciting, then I need to get out of the house more, because it seems pretty darned exciting to me!

The week was, as previously stated, an Intersection. Contestants, who normally work by themselves, were forced to pair up, which never fails to produce some interesting results, which in the best cases, elevates the work of them both in the process. They were given two topics, "Bridge" and "The Straw That Stirs the Drink". One of them had to write one, and the partner tackled the other.

Some people have been wondering how the poll is going to work.

I have an answer for that, but first - there's another question to be answered. We had an odd number of contestants, which means there was going to be an "Odd Man Out"/last person picked for dodgeball/the collective nightmare of Livejournal. This time, we actually had a volunteer to be that person: the_day_setup. There was some speculation on what was going to happen to him as a result of that.

Of course, he will be eliminated immediately. . .

Oh, wait... no he won't. That was my inside voice!

In fact, he has several options on the table. From the person not picked, to being the most powerful figure in the competition at the moment.

He has until Wednesday, April 4th at noon EDT to send an email to me at clauderainsrm@gmail.com selecting one of the following options:

- Individual immunity (being safe from the vote - good for this round only) and an immunity to hand out to one other team (good for this round only)
- Topsy Turvy (the ability to "flip the poll" upside down. The team with the HIGHEST votes will be going home. Good until the Top 40)
- Individual immunity (this round only) and the ability to bring one contestant eliminated between now and the Top 40 back, INCLUDING self.

Any one of those options is enough to tip whatever someone has perceived to be "the way things are", and considering how fluid that has been anyway, it's enough to really make a mark on the season. Which one will be pick? Who knows? I'll find out when he tells me! You will find out shortly after that!

As for the actually poll, the vote totals of the partners will be added together. The duo with the lowest combined total, will be eliminated*. (*Unless of course Topsy Turvy is played!)

The poll will close Thursday, April 5th at 9pm EDT, so make sure to get out there and read, comment, and vote for your favorites!

Good luck to everyone!

Good luck, everyone!

I kinda like it that we're all one tribe. Makes me want to invite everybody over. 59-person Seder, anyone?

Do you have a big enough table? Should I call a supplier?

I haven't been to a Seder in years...

My other question is, Gary wrote that Topsy Turvy could flip so the TEAM with the highest votes could go home..does that mean we will be in teams until the top 40? Because that part could be read that way...

I agree. I would hate to see that be a choice.

OTOH, it's the one choice that doesn't benefit the_day_setup in any way.

Choice #3, now... That one is tempting!

Topsy Turvy is strategic, but evil. Using it is surely a way to put a target on your back, since a lot of people would see it as a bad result.
similiesslip
Apr. 3rd, 2012 02:49 am (UTC)
Good point. That would make others want to vote you out, probably.

Yeah - I was thinking that if it was me, the topsy turvy thing would be a great trick to pull. But it would also be a pretty troll-y thing to do and would quite possibly make people mad at you. So I'd probably just laugh and joke about doing it but then go with one of the others for real. Probably the third one.
jem0000000
Apr. 3rd, 2012 05:15 am (UTC)
You don't necessarily *have* to use it. But I would go with the third one, too. :)

How fiendishly evil.....am hiding under the table with a bowl of jello.

I am actually in a 'cheats' mood today am making red velvet cup cakes and brownies from, ......oh the shame....... a packet. I hide my head, but I am very tired, grandson might come, have ironed for way too long, and worked on other mundane tasks, yet I just want to paint. Life can be cruel.

I'll be honest - if I had those three options, I'd pick Topsy Turvy. NOT because I am a horrible, horrible person, but because it could really shake things up and make the rest of the contest interesting, and who doesn't like interesting?

Good luck, everyone! :D
jem0000000
Apr. 3rd, 2012 05:14 am (UTC)
I would want the one with the bringing someone back. But topsy-turvy would totally be my second choice. :)
