Task 8: The Biggest Loser

Post by Adam on Wed 11 Nov 2015, 09:35

In an attempt to get a little more participation,  I'm giving more time to complete this task. You have until 10pm eastern tonight to finish.

You'll be once again working as a group, but also working individually in an attempt to win an exemption. Jess already has an exemption from the next quiz, so your chances of elimination are already greater. An exemption would come in handy now.

Here's how this will work: I'm giving you each $5000 that you can add to the group pot: a potential for $50,000. But the more money you're willing to give up to other players and not bank to the group pot, the greater your chance at exemption.

In your journal, I need you to tell me how much money you want to bank to the group pot and how much you want to give away and which players you're giving it to- you can give all $5000 to a single player, you could give $1000 to 5 different people, you could give $100 away to the other 9 and bank $4100, divide it however you choose. The only rule is you must give it away in $100 increments.

If you don't post in your journal by 10pm, none of your money will be added to the pot and you won't be eligible for the exemption.

All money banked by 10pm will be added to the pot. Furthermore, whichever player has the least amount of money (from the original $5000 + anything given to you by other players) will win the exemption from the next quiz. In the event of a tie for least money, nobody will win the exemption.  This measure is to prevent 9 people from giving all their money to the same person and all 9 winning exemption.

Feel free to openly discuss your plans for the money or argue why you shouldn't have money given to you. Keep in mind though: what people say on this thread might not actually be what they post in their journal.

An example to help clear up the rules: if Blake gives away all his money, he has $0. But Kim gives him $3000. He would now have $3000 as his total amount. Say Javi banks all $5000 plus he receives $1000 from Kim, Pete, Blake and Turner, he'd finish with $9000. The person with the lowest final amount wins the exemption. Also in this example, only Javi's original $5000 will be added to the group pot.

I have a question. Once this task is over, will you let us know exactly what each player did with their $5,000 ?

Here are the results of the challenge:
As a group, you banked $15,300

Merriska banks 5000
Jess banks 5000
Javi banks 4800
Pete banks 500

Blake gave away his 5000

Nobody else posted so their money is lost.

Javi gave $100 to Kim and $100 to Rachael
Pete gave everyone $500
Blake gave Angel 600 Mas 300 Pete 600 Kim 500 Jess 500 Turner 400 Rachael 600 Javi 800 Henry 700

So totals for each person:
Javi - 6100
Merriska - 6100
Jess - 6000
Rachael - 1200
Henry - 1200
Kim - 1100
Pete - 1100
Turner - 900
Mas - 800
Blake - 500

Which means Blake wins exemption from the next quiz.

I rushed on the rules since I only had a few mins otherwise I wouldn't have given Kim or Rachael money obviously.

Congrats on immunity Jess.
