Michael R. Popular Score: 3.3 Judges Score: 3.5 Survival Chance 68%
Michael, you have the highest popular score, though this is very low compared to the standard that you all have been holding. That, combined with your judges score has you at the top…very comfortable going into the Grand Finale! The judges appreciated the basic concept to try to avoid the center of the avalanche, and then to brace for impact instead of just finding the nearest tree. Your score would only have been higher had you elaborated on further scenario options such as “what if the tree falls over” or “if I am buried”. But we digress…you are at the top!
Ben R. Popular Score: 3.2 Judges Score: 3.5 Survival Chance 67%
Ben, your entry was sub par for you, but still in the top. Though you placed at number two, this will not be enough to get you through the Grand Finale unscathed. Now it’s time to step up your game and go all in for the finale.
Alex B. Popular Score: 2.8 Judges Score: 3.5 Survival Chance 63%
Alex, you also survive to go into the final showdown- though just barely! You brought some interesting points and good information in your post, but the popular vote just did not swing your way. Even with this setback, you held on!
Joe R. Popular Score: 3.0 Judges Score: 3.0 Survival Chance 60%
Joe, that middle ground has now officially crumbled away! We are sorry, but you will not be going to the Grand Finale! Unfortunately, the judges were impressed the least by you, since everyone included the fact of finding a tree, hug, and hope. However, you just left it at that and did not add creativity to the quest. Even so, you were barely edged out.You made a great run and thanks for playing!
