Well, we have our Top
12 13 contestants finally! I felt bad for Anoop getting his chain yanked again, feeling the complete disappointment of not making it, only to be told he’d actually made it because they were upping the number of contestants. That’s just brutal.
But enough about the Top 13; It’s time to play Fantasy Idol! Here are the rules:
- You can pick up to six contestants for your team.
- You can divide a total of 6 points among your team. (You are responsible for correctly adding your points. In the event that you assign too many points total for your team, one point will be deducted starting with the first contestant you selected and moving through each of your team members until it reaches six total points.)
- Each week your contestant survives, you will receive the number of points you’ve assigned to that contestant added to your total score.
- The person with the most points at the end of the season gets a free copy of In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day. (In the event that I win, 2nd place will receive the prize.)
Here’s an example of how it works:
You choose Anoop, Kris and Jasmine for your team. You decide Anoop is worth 3 points, Kris is worth 1, and Jasmine, 2. Each week Anoop survives, you’ll get 3 points added to your total score. Each week Kris survives, you’d get 1 point.
The deadline to sign up will be 7:55 EDT (Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead this weekend!) on Wednesday, March 11, which is 5 minutes before the results show starts. This gives you the opportunity to see everyone sing one more time before deciding. If you wish to change your picks, simply fill out the form again. Your latest valid entry will count as your official team.
Also, the name you enter on the form will be what’s displayed on the blog standings.
Feel free to invite as many people as you want to join in on the fun. Please point them to this post for the rules and to sign up.
