But who is your pick to survive next week?
the widow started drinking early, today
This is why I don't like this game. My problem isn't alcohol, it's just old age!
OK, then I'll say, Mel & Mike just like everyone else.
Oooohhhh --- this looks like fun!
I think I'll go out on a limb and pick Mel and Mike.
Zev and Justin
I'm taking Kisha and Jen
Going with the flow too... Mel and Mike
I'll go with everyone else I guess and say Mel and Mike solely on the assumption that the previews lie. Though that's not *always* been the case iirc.
Didn't Ron & Christina last quite a while the last time they were on? I'd kind of been thinking about picking them, but they should be stronger than Mel & Mike, Amanda & Kris have the two detours to do and the Cowboys are quite a way back..... Hmmmm.
I'm going to go with Mel & Mike although I seem to recall last time I picked based on the previews things didn't turn out too well.
They were second (and Christina got to the final roadblock first, was very close to the correct answer before melting down) so yes, I would say they lasted a while
Still, Ron has aged a lot and looks to be in horrible physical shape right now, so it's definitely not the same team as before
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.
