Okay I am waiting to hear back from Groucho, but I will start this pool for the first 17 people interested. We can do it for @5 or @10 per person, or maybe the @bank will sponsor this event, worst case I will put up some @ to sponsor this. There are only 18 max spots and once full I will randomly pull the Survivors name out of a hat and go down the list to get your survivor, ie. I am first on so I get first drawn, Spaceboy gets the second name drew, and so on. Once your survivor is voted off, so are you, last one wins.

So far I have these people in.
Cusm
Spaceboy
Renee
Jay77
Tommy Harn

Cool. Yeah, or we can all just paypal you the money to hold onto. The way my work one is, it's 80/20 split, so the 2nd place guy gets a little bit.

If we can't get enough, we can always do it, where we get more people each or something. I would say we do it for 5 or 10 each too, that's good..

I'd be interested in playing.

I'd be willing to go $5 or $10 and could paypal the organizer the money. Should make this round a bit more interesting!

Perhaps we should add in a bit extra for fees if we go the paypal route? If the organizer has a premier account, he/she shouldn't get shortchanged. Unless he/she just pays out whatever the net amount comes to.

Count me in!

I am not opposed, but I am trying to stay away from real money, as I do not want to be responsible for $100-200 for months, and I do not want to break any forum rules. This is why I suggested Otter droppings. If more people (and no probs w/ the mods) want to do it for $$ we can do it that way too.

I have no otter droppings If mods and everybody has no problem with money, I can take it, and leave it my account if you don't want Cusm.

I want in. But if were going to do this we need to ban any and all spoilers from the thread. I like to be surprised. There will definitely be Survivor threads that people can post spoilers in. Oh, and I don't have any otter droppings either. I'm in for $5 or $10 though.

BTW, just a thought, but why doesn't everybody just hold on to there money and then paypal or mail the winner after the contest. I think most people here seem pretty cool. And if someone doesn't end up paying up at the end we can just mock him/her for months.

Count me in. I don't have a paypal account, though. As long as that doesn't matter, or if its easy to set one up, I'm there.

Okay I will put up @20 (twenty otter-droppings) to the 1st place winner and @10 to the 2nd place. I took the 9 people that seemed interested in this and randomly drew from a hat 2 contestants each. Here is who is in and whom they have.

Cusm - Jenna L./Alicia
Spaceboy - Tom/Kathy
Renee - Rob M./Ethan
Jay77 - Jerri/Amber
Tommy Harn - Richard/Colby
Astrochimp - Rupert/Lex
Patman - Jenna M./Shii Ann
briank - Rob C./Tina
dstrauss - Susan/Rudy


If anyone wants out let me know. I will make a better chart/post tomorrow when I have time.

At least you didn't end up with TWO of the most annoying beotches on the show.

Hell, I might even be up for trading you Jerri for Tina.

Cool. I got Tom in both my polls now. That guy is pretty funny to me, although I do think I shouldn't haven't traded rob in my other pool for money, he seems like he's going to be around for awhile..

Cool, I must have missed this. Some good picks, I guess.

So, what do I need to do?
