Boho Rachel rocked that final challenge to blast past Christina!
This could turn into a Mel + Mike bloodbath. so-
Kisha & Jen
I will go with Ron and Christina.
As tempting as it is to go w/the preview and the crowd, I'll make Zev and Justin my pick for this week.
Kisha and Jen for me
I'l take the Globetrotters just for the fun of it.
zaphyre joining in!
so where's BYTCH? spooked from her last failure?
Ghost Hunt is back on. I think I have a fair and balanced workaround to allow a returning player. Simply - all snuffed who wish to remain eligible for returning will continue to submit picks, and will be eligible for Ghost Hunt week as long as they do not choose an eliminated TAR18 team a third time. Since they are continuing to submit picks, ghosts will be extinguishing their choice options just like those still alive in the game, and thereby the ghost(s) returning to the game - after X weeks dead - will not have an advantage.
The rule is below. Chill. It sounds much more complicated than it is, and besides, I will explain things as the situation arises.
Prancer or genevieve, could you edit my first post, and place this into the slot where the Ghost Hunt! is summarized? (two paragraphs)
9. NEW RULE! Or more accurately -- NEW OPPORTUNITY! There will be a "Ghost Hunt" this season, wherein any formerly snuffed players may compete to get back into the game. The Ghost Hunt itself will be later in the game (likely when four teams are left racing), and will be preceded with a post exclaiming "Ghost Hunt!".
However, the preparations begin for each person immediately after their initial snuffing.
9a. Players who have been snuffed (i.e. two wrong picks) are eligible, but they must do two things: 1. Continue to submit weekly picks even after their snuffing AND avoid being double snuffed (once you've chosen your third eliminated team, you're out of the game entirely). 2. After the Ghost Hunt! posting by me, submit both the standard weekly pick, AND prediction of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers for the week.
The ghost who comes the closest to the actual top 3 finishers (deviations) that week is back in the game with "status: resuscitated". Wrinkle: If they achieve the above "but" have chosen the eliminated team as their weekly pick ... they will "not" return to the game -- in this scenario, the next best would become the returning ghost.
Your picks, so far, are below. 25 players already. Please advise if I missed your post/picks (tired eyes, here).

If Mel/Mike are eliminated this Sunday, 2/3s of us will be trying out Beefy's ghost dance.
I'm almost hoping that's what will happen, even though I'll be one of the ghosties
It would be pretty funny. ((((Beefcake)))) if it did.
Bah, stop clutching your pearls. Instead, you should all be celebrating being in first place!
And besides, you aren't a member of the ghost tribe* until you've been snuffed. (i.e. it will take two weeks - minimum.)
*(shout out to Survivor 5, featuring Burton, granny Lillian, and of course Lillian's granny panties)
I am going to take Kynt and Vyxsin.
You might want to proofread it and make sure I got everything in there.
And here I thought you might have been suckered into watching Survivor: Redemption Island this season.
I'll join the herd with Mel and Mike.
*ahem* Season 7.
Ron and Christina.
used the dart board method of choosing Kisha & Jen
I'm in, but avoiding the biggest part of the crowd: I'll go with Ron and Christina.
I am going to go against the group and pick the Globetrotters.
I'm going to go with Jamie/Cara
Don't know why I couldn't make up my mind on this one. I almost decided to use the "no pick" right out of the gate. On the theory that the team I want off my screen ASAP will likely hang around I pick
Margie & Luke
Mel & Mike
Mel/Mike for me.
Not even a sexy, True Bloodesque droplet.
I almost picked Amanda/Kris. See, its impulses like that when left unchecked get me voted off the island first.
For next week:
Gary and Mallory
I already made my pick for next Sunday....and it shall be revealed much much much later in the week
Gary and Mallory. They'll live to annoy me another week.
Gary and Mallory for me, too.
CANCEL that, I'll take Jaime and Cara
You're against sunshine, joy, and puppies if you're against Mallory.
No longer enabling the huddled masses, are we?
I'll go with Ron and Christina in the hopes that that will ensure they leave. I sort of liked them before, but he's really bugging me this go around.
I will take Jaime and Cara
I hope you are right, but Ron being really annoying and Christina saying that they still have things to work out tells me they will be around a while.
I missed the previews, so I don't know who was shown as being in danger and thus guaranteed to go on, so.........Jamie and Cara.
^ It's them, actually. The Gingers have a "game changing incident", says Phil. Followed by the thump, followed by Jaime exclaiming "did I just hit him," before doing her best Halle Berry impersonation. Pedal to the metal!
Lifting this from aforementioned Cowboy-hating Sucksters because it's freaking -- "if Jaime has killed an taxi driver who doesn't understand English, then her "unfinished business" is complete.
Feck! I asked my husband and daughter, who sat through the whole thing, and neither one of them could remember. How could they forget THAT?
Oh, well. I still have them in my "early out" group, so I'll stick with it.
I'm going to live dangerously and go with Mel and Mike this week.
