PR epi7 - picks and scores

#ProjectRunway ... package deal for episode 7 - the chosen few picks, episode results, and scores heading into episode 8. once again, i will be post-poning the recap links for this episode and last week's episode ven-is-a-butthead-meany-man 6. (just need to gather them) thanks again to harold's girl for texting epi7 results before the west coast viewing.
AMAZING rise to the top by zoe's buddy!
now a 6.5 point spread between 1st and 5th

we're cheering on shiny penny and pho queen - tides change!

episode 7 - the "stuart smalley" episode ... i call this episode the "i'm good enough, i'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!" no one was AUF'd, judges considered that everyone stepped up to the challenge despite a bottom 2 judging scene that allowed sequins to be validated. yes, another anti-AUF'd episode. because no one was AUF'd, the "math" for pair 'em ups was simply zero points across the board. HOWEVER, i got cranky because rather than a top3/bot3, PR went for top4/bot2.

ONCE AGAIN (!!!)
9 fashiontestants heading into episode 8
4 women, 4 men, 1 butthead-man
the chosen few ... for epi7, here are each nutkin'rs' predictions and then the math explained - point system explained in this post over here. a few adjustments to the original scoring system for epi7 - given there were only two in the bottom rather than three, those who chose who chose both received 2 points. AND with neither of the bottom 2 AUF'd (gunnar and alicia), i was feeling generous, so those nutkin'rs who had either of the losers listed for the bot2 received 0.50 points.
nutkin'rs predictions 

standings after episode 7 ... once again, nutkin'rs were shuffled around. every nutkin'rs' final 3s remain (one point all around). HOWEVER, this epi7 picks resulted in a 6.5 point spread between 1st and 5th place. and quite an amazing show for zoe's buddy who scored ONLY positive points.
  • zoe's buddy + 8.5  = + 8.5 points for  1st place (last wk tied 4th/5th) ... + 1 (final 3/4 in tact) + 1 (predicted the winnder would be christopher) + 0.50 (bonus for predicting alicia as the loser) + 2 (predicted 2 of the bottom 2) + 2 (predicted 2 of the bottom 2) + 2 (bonus two for both bottom 3). WOW! no negative points. AMAZING!
  • squirrel + 6 - 1.5 = + 4.5 points for 2nd place (last wk 1st) ... + 1 (final 3/4 in tact) - 1 (predicted loser would be christopher, but he was the winner) + 1 (predicted one in top 3) + 2 (predicted two in the bottom) + 2 (bonus two for both bottom 3) - 0.50 (predicted one in reverse in the bottom). after seeing gunnar in the bottom, 
  • harold's girl + 6.5 - 1 = + 5.5 points for 3rd place (last wk 3rd) ... + 1 (final 3/4 in tact) + 0.50 (bonus for predicting alicia as the loser) + 1 (predicted 1 of the top 4) + 2 (predicted 2 of the bottom 2) + 2 (bonus two for both bottom 3) - 0.50 (predicted one in reverse in the top) - 0.50 (predicted one in reverse in the bottom). 
  • shiny penny + 4 - 0.50 = + 3.5 points for 4th place (last wk 2nd) ... + 1 (final 3/4 in tact) + 2 (predicted two of the top 4) + 1 (predicted one in bottom 2) - 0.50 (predicted one in reverse in the bottom). 
  • pho queen + 3.5 - 1.5 = + 2 points for 5th place (last wk tied 4th/5th) ... + 1 (final 3/4 in tact) + 0.50 (bonus for predicting alicia as the loser) + 1 (predicted 1 of the top 4) + 1 (predicted 1 of the bottom 2) - 0.50 (predicted one in reverse in the top) - 1 (predicted two in reverse in the bottom). it was a tough episode for pho queen, but tides can shift!
