Only one-quarter of our users correctly pegged Bergen and Kurt as the most likely to be axed this week. This long-time couple never recovered from the two-hour penalty they took instead of driving the stick shift car. Likewise, only 25% of our users foresaw that first win for Olympians Aly and Steve, who were each rewarded with a new Ford Focus for their efforts.
Eeriic broke the tie by racking up the most points of this quartert. He savvily placed his 500-point superbet on the Express Pass question when the correct answer (“No”) had odds of 8/1. That earned him 4,000 points. And he put his two 200 points bets on the leg winner and loser questions when each correct answer was at 4/1.
If he is eligible, as per our contest rules, he will win the $100 Amazon gift certificate.
By nailing all three questions this week, Eeriic moves into 10th place on our overall leaderboard. Despite only going two for three this week, JasonNolette remains in first place with an overall average of 64% correct. However, Vinny and Magic 8 Ball are closing in, with 62% each. And Magic 8 Ball has a staggering 52,650 points which could give her the edge if there is a tie to be broken.
