Just finished tallying the Performance Round! So far six people have earned as many points as he or she can earn. That's as far as the Performance Round goes. There's still the Results.

There is one person that actually got every question right. You only need a correct pick on 5 out of 7, but the individual got everything right (Simon did not get booed for his final comments, which means the audience was actually classy).

Of course, that individual knows who he or she is. All I can say is that you'll win for this week if you're perfect on the first five questions in the results round. Yep, it's the original questions that appeared since Day One so a correct pick on those first five will result in an automatic win. That's if you want to take a risk (and people typically do)!

As for the first question in the Super Bonus (Who from outside the F2 gets shown first during the entire episode?), feel free to put up to three people down for your answer. Although you'll earn more for putting one person down, I forgot to mention that.

I think I'll definitely be around all of tomorrow, so feel free to ask any questions, either here or PM (unless that's full, in which case, email). Good luck.

Well, it wasn't anything such as winning, because I'm not winning anything here. Not that I would have won had I played, although it would have been fun if I had thought of entering the game. Thanks BTW!

Speaking of winning, as expected, JustADream & tribbles participated and obviously earned enough points that it's down to those two for the title. While the eventual winner from the show will actually be a deciding factor, if it's not someone in particular, it could get real interesting!

Well there really isn't too much to add results-wise. Lee went first and won, Crystal went second and lost. PhantomPlanetQueen won the season finale (2 in a row). BTW, PhantomPlanetQueen won the season finale in the first year of the PPG. Both times was with a perfect score.

Big congrats to JustADream for clinching the title for this year's game! It's fitting considering the fact that you're taking over next year!

However, the scores between JustADream and tribbles were so close that I have to factor in everything else. With the total wins and the boot order, tribbles managed to win this year's Most Valuable Player award. Typically the season champ wins the MVP, but it's was a race between tribbles and JustADream for most of the season. BTW, PhantomPlanetQueen won the boot order due to the decision to go with and stick with Lee and Crystal as the winner and runner-up, respectfully. Either way, congrats all around!

If you'd like to see a list of the final totals, feel free to email (or PM later in the week after I clear out my PM mailbox). The totals are so much that I can't fit it into one post, and I'd like to have a list of all the other stuff looking back to 2006. Stuff that I should've had here on Friday, but fittingly enough, it did not happen. Maybe it'll sneak in here by Friday (or sometime in 2011 before Season 10 starts)


Final Top 12 Scoreboard:

JustADream - 12941880 (2-Time winner)
tribbles - 12789100 (3-Time winner)
I hate Mondays - 10059800 (Top 24 Round Winner)
PhantomPlanetQueen - 9611450 (Boot Order Winner)
Rowr17 - 9245550
Occasional Hope - 7836200
progression - 6985430
FirstAndTen - 6323550
Tab - 4862880
Ashlae - 4678500
Adammo88 - 3772200
myintermail - 3392200
Shiny Objects - 2784450
jsm1125 - 1453850
mshepnj - 550



Before I go, the Encore Stuff:

A. 605540544021422528151616 = X

X = The boot order, based on the total number of letters in the booted person's first name, multiplied by their placement (Lacey * 12 = 60, Paige * 11 = 55, etc)


B. 2700 = Y, and

Y = Total number of letters in all 12 finals first names, times total number of letters in all 8 past winners names


C. 775 = Z, or 187 = Z,

Z = All of the finals with the exception of seasons 1 & 8, with either their total number of letter in their names combined, or by the names as it relates to the alphabet.


Yes, these aren't that easy. However, I actually have had people get their right in the past (TAR and Survivor).


Other than that and everything else, that's a wrap! Best of luck to everyone here. Thanks to the 73 people that have put up with all the madness with TAIPPG. And with JustADream running things, who knows what could happen? Hopefully there's a huge overall, and American Idol starts fresh. That way, they might not lose a lot of viewers, and/or they'll get newer people to watch the show. Hopefully the game is as successful if all goes well next year. Chances are that I'll pop in (offer some advice or so) since this was really the only thing that had me watching this year. I won't be watching but sometimes you don't need to since a lot of people tend to talk about AI to the point where it's not necessary, yet you could still win.

That being said, see you over in Sports, TAR, Survivor, and wherever else. Good luck take care, and God Bless! Peace!

Thanks for the scores and everything you do, SeaBreeze! If it's all right, I'll be PMing you sometime in January to discuss the new game? (I assume Idol is coming back because of auditions being lined up and everything, but after this year's ratings - and the numbers for when November's CD sales come in, you never know...)

Congrats to tribbles and all my other co-contestants :)
