Picture Round : 69 (4th place)


Celebrity Round : 79 (3rd place)


Average : 74 (3rd place)



Final Message : "Heading into this edition, I set high goals for myself having previously competed in POM, and yet, I find myself feeling the same joy I did the first time I ever made the final five in this competition. And now, my fate hangs in these words. It's impossible not to feel the pressure. That's a positive for me though, because I work best under pressure. If there is no pressure, then there are no expectations and without any expectations, I won't strive for enthusiasm."

Picture Round : 81 (3rd place)


Celebrity Round : 59 (8th place)


Average : 70 (5th place)



Final Message : "I am extremely grateful to be in the top 5. My celebrity choice wasn't the most usual, Chantal is unknown to most, but I strongly prefered to make her known to few people than to give a safer choice of celebrity that meant nothing for me. She helped to burn down stereotypes and that's why I love her. I hope the judges will clearly see that love through my messages and see how genuine and honest they were."

Picture Round : 92 (2nd place)


Celebrity Round : 59 (4th place)


Average : 83 (2nd place)



Final Message : "After looking at the reactions and scores to the my celebrity answer, I didn't think there would be enough support for me. So I am humbled to be part of this exclusive final 5 again. My final message is, I've won this before and it's a great honour. I'd like to see some of the newer and younger POM players get their moment to shine. I'm just thrilled to be playing this game again."







Bennyboy

Picture Round : 95 (1st place)


Celebrity Round : 95 (1st place)


Average : 95 (1st place)



Final Message : "I guess that my motto is that 100% of the shots you don't take don't go in. I believe that you have to put in your best effort to obtain something you really want. I like to give different things a try and I like being laid back and enjoying my adolescence. I love South America and one day I want to go there and help out unfortunate people. Just enjoying myself in what I do as a profession is my life’s ambition. Thanks!"

Picture Round : 54 (7th place)


Celebrity Round : 90 (2nd place)


Average : 72 (4th place)



Final Message : "Once, Mark McCormack said "We seriously undervalue the passion...a person brings to an enterprise. You can rent a brain, but you can't rent a heart." I try to do give something meaningful everyday, full of passion. I hate and I love. Getting to the top 5 has made me know myself even more, and gain my passion back and added the spice to this board. Whoever achieves to win, I will be happy for him. Thank you for the opportunity guys. Really. Thanks."

Congratulations to our new champion! :D

I'm in a hurry right now, but I promise I'll post the scores the scores of the final round at the earliest tommrow.

Once again, from the bottom of my heart :

THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING THIS EDITION A SUCCESS!!! :D :D

Congrats as well to Duiz, cdpoulin and Sam on their Top 5 finishes. :)

Thanks to deftman and all the judges for their work in making this amazing edition a reality. Thank you. :)

Congrats BennyBoy! I honestly thought you would lose it after the final words, DZ's words were very strong, but your almost-perfect picture and celebrity rounds helped ya stay on top!

Well Quent, we were incredible good in our predictions :lol:

Anyways thanks everyone, deftman, quent, and all the judges!

I must say I really like this game, though I strongly think we need more than three rounds to decide a winner!

SCORES


--------------------------------J1------J2-------J3-----J4-------Average


Bennyboy-------2 ----1-----1----2 ----1.5


!!!-Dz-!!!----------1-----4 ----2 ---3-----2.5



cdpoulin1------4 ----2 ----3 ---4-----3.66

hingis-seles---5 -----3 ---4----1------4

Sam L-----------3 -----5 ----5 ---5-----5





Scores in green indicate scores which were counted in the average. The score which was farthest from the others was dropped, and the other 3 averages, however in the case of Bennyboy and !!!-Dz-!!!, the 4 scores were equidistant, and it was impossible to isolate one score as the farthest. Thus all 4 scores were averaged. If all 4 scores were averaged for everyone, then the positions would have remained almost the same, except that Hingis-seles and cdpoulin1 would have the same average.

LOL Dz!! Click on the link on the 3rd post of this thread. And after reading that, the above procedure should become clear to you, I hope :D What you see above are the RANKS of the 4 judges. So the one with the lowest aggregate rank obviously wins :D

Pretty much. We just wait for the next edition of POM.

Normally POM should be held every month right? :p

Actually if deftman and others are ok.. I wouldn't holding the movie POM again.

OMG I'm shocked too :o

But anyway, I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion :D Personally, I would not have expected someone who believes in world peace, to also believe that homosexuality is a mental disorder, but that's his opinion :D


Movie POM was the best :yeah:

Hmm I have often heard this. The other day wongqks was also telling me that the movie POM was the best. Irrespective of whether Ali holds a POM in October or not, the next POM that I hold, whenever it is, could be a movie-making POM, but then, the problem is that it is very difficult to get contestants. The last time around, we had to wait for 2 months to get 8 players, and I had sworn to never to hold it again. If it is going to be held in December, maybe we should open the sign up thread now? :lol:

When does Bennyboy's reign end? The 20th of October?

I'm planning on holding a POM, which will start on the 14th and culminate with the crowning on the 20th. That's the rough plan for now. I have no idea what the format will be. Feel free to throw ideas out, etc. Anyone interested in participating as a contestant or judge or commentator, let me know. I'll think it over this weekend, once my exams finish.

Post ideas and suggestions. I'll need a farewell speech from Bennyboy as well as him to be present to crown his successor (ala Miss Universe) :p

Hey everyone. I was thinking of starting POM in the first week of November (around the 30th of October - 1st of November) since I'll have some time that week. Start signing up and suggesting formats for the game. Thanks. :)

Bennyboy, you can start working on your farewell speech now. ;)

We need 4 judges and as many participants. Feel free to make suggestions regarding the format for this edition of POM.

Thanks.
