Suicide Amazing Race-Last Rites: The end is nigh

    Last dance. Last chance for ...

    ... playing FSU's Suicide Amazing Race with Host Beefcake. TAR 20 begins tomorrow, February 19. Suicide Amazing Race V begins immediately following the premiere.

    :kickass: This will be no frills, no resuscitation, no la la peace love and harmony. Nope. You either get it right, or you've offed yourself. :kickass:

    :) Enjoy.

    I had to skip the last three Suicide Amazing Race games to bring up the version we're emulating: Suicide TAR I

    Last season's was the least typical Suicide game as nobody died. Boring. Versions II and III featured resuscitation, and an attempt for ghost returnees that failed when Phil and Co. decided to have a double episode finale. :drama:

    :COP: You have the first episode to watch, familiarize yourself with the teams, and then submit your first picks. Here is Phil's assessment of the teams ... some of you may think you can pull hints from his words. Eh, maybe, maybe not.

    An aside: Clowns :scream::scream::scream:

    Here are the rules. Please check these again, though, as if I've forgotten a wrinkle I may edit by Tuesday.

    SUICIDE TAR OVERVIEW: Each week, surviving TAR Suicide contestants will submit choices of one TAR team they feel will survive the next episode's leg. If your pick survives to the next week, so do you!


    1. At the beginning of Week 2, 2/19-airtime on 2/26), anyone wanting to participate in this game will submit - on this thread - the name of a TAR team they feel will survive the upcoming week's episode. Survivors will continue this ritual until they are dead or until the finale (see: #7 for finale rules).

    Sample weekly submission: WEEK 2: Ma & Pa.

    Simple, eh? :)

    2. Submission must be prior to the start of the upcoming episode's first showing (i.e. Eastern Time)

    3. If your team survives the episode, you also survive to play again. :cheer2:

    4. If your team is eliminated, you are eliminated. :wuzrobbed (You're also out if you forget to submit before the deadline.)

    5. Important: You may use each team only ONE time for the duration of TAR20/this game. Ergo, your strategy may be to pick a team you perceive as weaker (but not "weakest"!) each week. Or your strategy may be to play it safe, make sure you progress into the next week.

    6. The game will end either after the final episode or when the last of us is knocked out via "suicide".

    7. Those surviving through the season's penultimate episode will predict the WINNER from any of the teams racing in the finale. i.e. You don't have to save anybody for the finale. :saint: That's my loving going-away gift to you.

    Only 15 minutes into the show and already Rachel is telling all that no one comes between her and her ... million dollars. Please let them get eliminated soon. Any time they are on is a waste of TV time and mine.

    Wheeee, the show starts with a cycling theme. Anyone catch The Ride last night? It's a documenary showing Phil's cross country bike ride to raise money for MS research.

    :lol: Yes, this is definitely my last go-round. I noticed on the link for "Suicide TAR I" that I had tried to quit, but didn't ... that was four Suicide versions and probably another two "rank 'em" versions ago. :shuffle:

    As for KVDP, yes, he's got to retire soon, dump the chav, and come to California. My house boy w/benefits :grope: can only be so old, ya know.

    I'm rejoining the competition :) since it's the last dance.

    WEEK 1: Hicks

    Well, I was going to go with Bopper and partner, but since they've been chosen twice, I will take the Jersey Tools, and if they are eliminated, you all can thank me for taking one for the team. :encore:

    I'm going with the Clowns. I'd have gone with the JerseyTools, but I don't trust PL.

    Team Badonkadonk* is what we're gonna call the Mississippi cousins within the game. Their round booties inspired Boomer to note their "badonkadonk" (urban slang for ample rear ends) during last night's episode. Bev was using her own spin on that.

    *(likely just "Badonkadonk" on the standings chart.)

    Ok so I'm very much out of TAR-prediction-contest shape and barely know who half the teams are. But I'll play, and I want to last at least one week so I'll play it safe this time.

    Therefore, pick for week one: Rachel and Dave (army couple).

    Really playing it safe here. They got the express pass, but then of course they could get lost for hours and hours...and hours. Who knows? I hope they last, I find them ok.

    Thanks for doing this one more time Beefy. Love you :)
