Weetapidol Scores: 12th and 11th Place

Jermaine gets kicked off in 12th place, and we were all pretty close! The two people who were the furthest off, Shmuel and Kelly, still had Jermaine in 9th and did pretty well. Mo Pie gets the perfect score for this one:

13 points: Mo Pie
12 points: Jeremy
11 points: Shari, Wendi
10 points: Shmuel, Kelly

In other developments, Shannon goes home in 11th place. Perfect scores for this pick go to Shmuel and Shari! But again, nobody was very far off on this pick either:

13 points: Shmuel, Shari
12 points: Kelly
11 points: Wendi, Mo Pie, Jeremy

This means the overall scores don't change much, Shari catches up with Shmuel to tie for first, and the pack is really, really close.


36 points: Shmuel, Shari
34 points: Wendi, Mo Pie
33 points: Jeremy
27 points: Kelly

Next week, in 10th place, a couple of perfect scores up for grabs: Shmuel picked DeAndre to go 10th, and Mo Pie and Jeremy picked Jeremy Rosado. Everyone else picked people who are already gone, but that doesn't mean you can't take the field next week with a smart pick. Stay tuned!

Since Jermaine got kicked off this week, scoring will be a little more involved than usual. Look for your scores soon!

Weetapidol Pool Results!

And Jeremy is gone first!

In order to make my picks, I watched all the performances and took notes. Under Jeremy I put "yawn--could go." I actually had him last in my first pass through the placements. SO CLOSE! Why did I ultimately put him TENTH?

Okay, this isn't about me. This is about Shmuel, who starts off with a perfect score, and Wendi and Shari, who were only one place off. Here are the scores!

13 points: Shmuel
12 points: Wendi, Shari
10 points: Mo Pie, Jeremy
5 points: Kelly

(Not 100% sure about 2009, I can't find the post, but I'm fairly sure it was Wendi.)

Weetapidol Pool Picks! Right Here!

I have no idea who these people are, but it's not going to stop me from predicting the victor in the Weetapidol American Idol pool this year! The prize, as ever, is the American Idol-themed merchandise of your choice.

I'm going to watch the performers tomorrow and make my picks. Picks are due by showtime on the East Coast. (Shmuel's pool is going again this year also, FYI.) Here are the contestants, according to Wikipedia.

(OMG, I have to root for Erika because her last name is Van Pelt.) (Oh my god, Colton Dixon? Deandre Brackensick? Heejun Han? Phillip Phillips!? These people have the best names I have ever seen.)

Joshua Ledet
Elise Testone
Jermaine Jones
Erika Van Pelt
Colton Dixon
Shannon Magrane
Deandre Brackensick
Skylar Laine
Heejun Han
Hollie Cavanagh
Jeremy Rosado
Jessica Sanchez
Phillip Phillips

I hope we'll get some players this year!
