Welcome to SURVIVOR! Let the individual challenges begin!
The first individual challenge will be up in a few minutes!

Jersey Devil 07-22-2001 12:44 PM

The first challenge ... 6 people left!
We are going to have a "Who Am I?" contest.... here's how it works...

I will think of somebody, for example, Tiger Woods, and then give THREE clues as to who that is ... for example

"I am the only golfer to win the US Junior, the US Amateur, and the US Open"
"I was the first golfer to exceed $10,000,000 in winnings in a single season"
"I recently signed a sponsorship deal with Disney Co."

Obviously.. that's a REAL EASY example.... but this is how it'd work. I will keep on giving 3 clues for each round... and then everyone PMs me the answer. However, I will only give up to 48 hours for you guys to answer me, otherwise it could drag on for a bit. I plan on starting out easy with the clues, and then getting harder as the rounds go on.

But anyway, whoever gets it wrong in that round is BOOTED from the challenge, so it's possible that there's a winner in just one round. You keep going, though, until there's a champion of the challenge, who will recieve the immunity :goof: for himself AND get to rename the tribe! If EVERYONE gets a question wrong in a challenge, then EVERYONE that was still in the game at that time stays and tries again. Pretty simple.

Like last time, this is a trust game. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TALK TO ANYBODY ABOUT THESE QUESTIONS. IT MUST BE YOUR OWN GUESS. DO NOT REFERENCE THE INTERNET OR ANYTHING TO LOOK UP YOUR ANSWERS. This way it doesn't take forever and a day for the challenge to get over. Spelling won't count, as long as I can understand who you're trying to tell me.

After I declare that the challenge is over, the six people will each PM me a vote as to who of the 5 people who did not gain the immunity this time would be voted off.

There will be more rules, etc. to come if I think of them or if somebody has a question.

ROUND ONE question!
"I am the reigning American League MVP."
"I set a record for most homeruns in one round of the All-Star Homerun Derby -- with 14."
"My brother Jeremy also plays on my team."

PM me your answers by Tuesday @ NOON (EST).

Just to clear up some things ....
In case you didn't understand completely (Nick), it doesn't matter if anybody else has it. You have to answer it correctly for that round to stay in the game, that's all. You got it right, meaning you're still in till next time. (Wasn't sure if you were confused about it or not.)

Marc is correct.
Lee is correct.
Patrick is correct.
Nick is correct.
Rick is correct.
Wedge is correct.

The answer, as you all know, is Jason Giambi (see, I told you I'd start easy).

Also, like last challenge (funny, cause last challenge Jared "would" have won had we had the challenge and had he been in it), those not in the game anymore may also play for no credit. That being so, Ross is correct.

Since everybody has gotten the Round One question correct, I will start round two early (yet give extra time to make up for anybody possibly not being here since we didn't expect everyone to get answers this quick).

"I hold the MLB record for most stolen bases in a season by a rookie."
"I hold the MLB record for most consecutive steals in a career without being caught."
"A switch-hitter, my ONLY all-star appearance came during the 1988-1989 season."

Answers must be here by Wednesday, NOON EST. Hopefully everyone can send them in ASAP though.

I realized that after I sent the PM. Thanks though.

Marc 07-23-2001 10:49 AM

Can you do some questions other than baseball? :mad:

NickHammy 07-23-2001 10:56 AM

I'm sure he'll do something different next time...hopefully it won't be hockey:uhoh: :uhoh:

iFroggy 07-23-2001 12:21 PM

Yeah I am sure he will... but he is the one doing it and taking the time, so lets relax. :)

Jersey Devil 07-23-2001 02:32 PM

Actually ...
I didn't realize that I used another baseball one (I honestly forgot that I started with Giambi). But, since Brandon's out, I guess it makes it that much harder. Next round won't be baseball, it'll be one of the other three major sports, sorry bout that. At least the questions come from different decades.

Rick Dogg 07-24-2001 08:53 PM

So who got it right????????????????

Jersey Devil 07-25-2001 12:33 AM

It was NOT Rickey Henderson (or Tim Raines)!
And the results for ROUND TWO of this challenge:
Marc is correct.
Lee is correct.
Patrick is wrong.
Nick is wrong.
Rick is wrong.
Wedge is wrong.

The answer, as you former Demolitioners both know, is Vince Coleman.

As for those people NOT still in the game:
Ross is correct.
Spike30303 is wrong.

Round Three will be between Marc and Lee for the immunity :goof:

Jersey Devil 07-25-2001 12:49 AM

After all that complaining (LOL), here's an NBA question!

"I was a member of the gold-medal-winning U.S. Olympic team in 1984."
"I was selected directly after Michael Jordan (my college teammate) in the draft."
"I was once traded by the Lakers to the Seattle SuperSonics for C Benoit Benjamin and G/F Doug Christie (February 22, 1993)."

Answers must be in my PM box by Thursday at NOON (EST). Good luck to everybody.

spike30303 07-25-2001 12:54 AM

Why can't I play? There were other people who got the second question wrong, and I thought the first one was a freebie? ( I got it right anyway)!

Brandon 07-25-2001 02:07 AM

Spike, this was a game started a while back. These people are the six left from the game.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 04:48 AM.
