Fantasy Idol 2009
It’s almost time to start our Fantasy Idol season again. It seems the process for choosing a Top 12 is different yet again. There seem to be 3 weeks of 12 singers each (the Final 36). Each week, three winners will be chosen. There will then presumably be some method for getting the extra 3 singers back into the mix to round out the top 12.
Our rules will be a little different this time, however. Each player in the pool will be given 6 points to distribute among the finalists as you see fit. For example, you could take 6 different finalists and give each person one point. Or you could pick 3 people and give each 2 points. You get the number of points you’ve assigned to each contestant added to your score each week they survive. For example:
My picks are:
- John Doe: 2 points
- Jane Smith: 3 points
- Jimmy Johnson: 1 point
Now, John makes it 3 weeks, Jimmy 5 and Jane only 1. My point total would now be:
- John Doe: 2 points X 3 weeks = 6
- Jane Smith: 3 points X 1 week = 3
- Jimmy Johnson: 1 point x 5 weeks = 5
- Total Score: 14 points
At the end of the season, the person with the most points wins.
I’ll release the details for how to give me your picks once we get a little farther along, including when the deadline to pick will be.
