First and foremost - thank you to everyone who answered my call yesterday: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/935302.html and those who will be doing so in the near future. That really means a lot. Thank you.
Another call was answered last night, that call being "Who is going to be eliminated?" http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/935436.html followed by "What is the new topic?" http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/935840.html and "Is there a Work Room?" http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/936125.html
So it was more of a series of calls.
There was also a bit of math that was discovered last night. Some people already realized it and since I don't know if *everyone* has, and I mentioned to one person, I want to make sure that I'm mentioning it to *everyone*.
We are at the Top 5.
kathrynrose has immunity next week, her first and only week that can be played.
She was also given lrig_rorrim's bye on the way out the door. Next week is the last time a bye may be used.
So, she can hold onto it and NOT use it. Or give it to someone else.
IF she gives it to someone else - and they decide to use it (because you don't *have* to use a bye just because you have it. Some people decide not to use them as a matter of principle. But we are playing "worst case scenario" so let's assume they do... then 2 people out of the 5 can not be eliminated.
(Note: they could also decide to give it to someone else, BUT then that's the same situation with different names, so let's just play this out as if they keep it and use it)
But there is also one person, prog_schlock who has not used their topic bye. Again, it's the last week they could use it - or give it to someone else.
That means 3 out of the 5 can not be eliminated. Which means there are 2 people competing for 1 spot.
Who will those 2 be? Will there only be 2 or will the people with byes NOT pull that trigger? (Does it even make sense for them *not* to pull it?)
I'll admit, it has me on the edge of my seat waiting to see how this is going to play itself out!
