Lost death pool update: week eight
Well, well, well. "Exposé" was a busy episode for the grim reaper. As usual, I will leave the details for after the jump, so stop reading if you have not seen the newest episode. Many players have shot ahead in the pool, and a few of you have used up all of your picks already. Impressive.
I should mention that there have been rumors that a character who was presumed dead may show up alive in a later episode. For any death pool standings to change, this "resurrection" will have to occur onscreen during Season Three. The character will have to be seen alive, in real time.
Now let's get to the updated standings!
As Nikki mentioned in her flashback, guest stars aren't known for their long lives. Nikki and Paulo went the way of Boone and Shannon, getting buried alive after being paralyzed by a poisonous spider. Each death is worth 19 points (five points for a correct pick, nine episode points, and five points for an awesome cause of death). This episode was worth a total of 38 death pool points.
33 of you picked Paulo to die, and earned 19 points: 1L, Alex, apocalypsepony, April, bbf203, Chris Wyant, Courtney, darcie dyan, Dorothy Evins, Ed W., Gregory Capobianco, Heather, Holli, Hubba, jks, Julie, Kat, Kelbellene, Lauren, Michael, Mrs. Mga, Nancy, Priscilla, RSL, Sam, Shenva79, Tracy, Trayton, ts, WadeK, and Will.
For some reason, only ten of you marked Nikki for death, and also earned 19 points: April, ck, Ed W., Kenneth Chong, Kristi Parry, Michael, PlusDrew, RedStarRevolution, Sam Fox, and ts. Special kudos to April, Ed W., Michael, and ts for picking both Nikki and Paulo--you earned 38 points this week!
The new standings are as follows: Chris Wyant is in first place with 61 points. April and ts are tied for second place with 59 points. The following people are in close behind with 40 points: Alex, bbf203, darciedyan, Gregory Capobianco, Holli, Hubba, jks, Kat, Kenneth Chong, Kristi Parry, Lauren, PlusDrew, Priscilla, RedStarRevolution, and Tracy. Ed W. and Michael join the leader board with 38 points.
BlackViking is next, with 34 points. The following people are still in the game with 21 points: Andrew, Brody, Craig, Dennis K, Diana, Don, Dustin, Gina, John S., Kris Clark, mgamark, michou2880, Morgan, nandy, Sam, Stephanie, Thomas Cushard, TuckerKatt, and TVblogger. The final group has just joined the game with 19 points: 1L, apocalypsepony, Courtney, Dorothy Evins, Heather, Julie, Kelbellene, Mrs. Mga, Nancy, RSL, Sam, Shenva79, Trayton, WadeK, and Will. Congratulations, everyone!
For April, Chris Wyant, and ts, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that you are three for three; all of your death pool picks were correct. The bad news is that you have no more picks left, and there are still plenty of episodes coming up. The possible Charlie death is still hanging over our heads, so who knows? Things could still get shaken up. For now, enjoy your places at the top. Razzle Dazzle!
