First, we're gonna go through the bonuses for the week. The first part is the Beautiful Creatures 3 day gross question. This question is part of the OW Olympiad influence. Whoever is closest to the actual gross will win a gold medal, receiving automatic immunity from elimination this week as well as a 5% bonus next week. The second closest player (silver medal winner) will receive automatic immunity this week and a 1% bonus added to next week's score. Third place (bronze) will receive automatic immunity this week.

 

Actual: 7.58m

GOLD: 

Simionski- 7.30

SILVER: 

Michael G Scott- 8.25

BRONZE: 

Punishment- 8.60

 

Now we move on to the other bonus questions, which grant the winner a 1% addition to their score this week.

Safe Haven's 3 day gross: 21.402

Spaghetti- 21.43

A Good Day to Die Hard's domestic gross through Sunday: 33.074

JackO- 33.59

I am very pleased to have all 8 of you from Box Office Alliance on the dream team of this game. You should all be able to go very far, and I am thrilled to see you here.

 

As far as I am concerned, this will be a great season, and not just because of the BOA guys, but because of all of you. I'm looking forward to seeing how things turn out. There are some truly excellent players here.

Interestingly, each team had two players who did not predict. Each person who is highlighted in blue is immune from elimination this week due to Olympiad medals or getting the highest score on their team.

Third highest score of the week, even with the bonus. I can live with that. B)

Since this is a short week, there will not be a challenge or second immunity challenge. Don't get too excited, though. There will still be an elimination. How it's gonna work is that JackO (highest score of the week, highest team score) will select two players from either team or one player from each team to be eligible for elimination. Goffe (since he scored highest on team Survivor) will select one player from the BSG team to be eligible for elimination. The three eligible players will then go to TRIAL to see who goes home. 

 

Players eligible for nomination:

Spaghetti

CJohn

4815162342

Jim Shorts

ClaireHolt

Iceroll

Edward

Tylerdurden365

Fakhir

Gopher

Glassfairy

 

JackO and Goffe, please PM your picks ASAP so we can get rolling on the voting.

I messed up with Beautiful Creatures, I figured Safe Haven stole audiences from it on Thursday so it would rebound on Friday. Oops.

Glad I got immunity because I read the "Horrible Bosses' final domestic gross- IT total" question wrong.  I was thinking it was an end of game final gross question like for BSG :blush:

I predicted 16.40 million for Beautiful creatures. :lol: I predicted almost 45 million for Die Hard as well. :rofl: I nearly got perfect (Well, 99.86%) on SLP's gross though which probably saved my score.

Same here. Also in the mid 99's for SLP question... Mid 90 for Identity Thief question, but Die Hard and Beautiful creatures destroyed me.
