Because of this, I'm going to handle the eliminations first. It's bad news. But with a talented bunch like this, it's always going to be bad news.
There were supposed to be 3 contestants leaving this week, but there was a tie for that final spot. Under the circumstances, I'm NOT going to start Redemption this week though. So we are only losing two.
The people leaving this week are: boyfrond and deidrewilliams
I didn't expect to see either leaving so soon. :( But I hope that we will continue to see them in the Home Game.
Now the good news - there are 5 people who are eligible to "move up" to the main competition, as of Week 25. I say eligible because, if they wish, they can choose NOT to do so and stay in LCI for a little longer. But they have to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours to let me know. If I do not receive notification, I will assume you are moving up.
Those eligible are:
alephz, crisp_sobriety, medleymisty, n3m3sis43 and rattsu
Congratulations - and let me know your intentions!
