Our current overall leader JB correctly predicted all four of this week’s questions (see complete predix). However, his point total (400) is lower than KING’s point total (5,000) for the specific episode as KING was able to lock in better odds throughout the week.
Remember that coming out on top doesn’t just mean answering that week’s questions correctly. You also have to use your three big bets (500 points and two of 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a longshot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points, so don’t take them for granted.
To vote for who think will win “American Idol,” drag contestants over from the left to the right and arrange them in your predicted order. For example, if you think Jax will win, make sure you put her in first place.
