Champions draft- HHH

Welcome to the Outcasts draft! For some of you this is a new experience, so here’s a quick breakdown of how this goes:

  1. The draft will take place in the comments section. This is a snake-style draft, meaning that whoever gets the first pick will also get the last pick. Other than that, the same rules/scoring apply here as in the Pick-4 fantasy league.
  2. Each of us will draft two players, and I will alert you when it’s your turn to draft. I’ll respond to one of your comments so you get a notification in Disqus (or DM you on Twitter if you’re on there).
  3. Draft order is determined by our dear computerized friends at random.org.
  4. The scoring system is the exact same as it is in the Pick-4 league, so see that page if you need a reminder of how scoring works.
  5. If at any time you have questions, just post them in the comments section.

  • Two things:

    1. Please respond to this comment with your draft pick so that I get a notification and can let the next person know when it’s her/his turn to pick.

    2. Have fun with this. Give an explanation for who you’re picking, so that it can be thrown back in your face when you’re wrong. And feel free to talk trash to your competition.

    • Guess who got the Twitter message but was so focused on being first that she didn’t realize that it was a link to the draft? Yeap,that’s me.

      I am picking him first everywhere else, so why not pick him first here? Give me my Ken 2.0 in Cole.

    • PurpleTally

      I’ve been way too busy with school to really do any research, so I put all of the nondescript blonde players into a randomizer to make my first pick. I am going with Jessica.

      Sorry for taking so long. Moulding young minds and all that.

      • But don’t worry y’all. I have receipts of our initial thoughts of the cast and will be sharing (with Tally’s permission, of course).

        • PurpleTally

          This season, Barbara Anderson will be playing the roles of witch and Kim Kardashian.

    • Neat, it my time now and I am going to pick up Chrissy for my team for one simple reason: It is my belief that in order for a season of Survivor to be good someone for Jersey needs to get far. I’m taking her before anyone else to mess with people.

      Now Mr. Pelican it is your turn for selection.

    • ExtraLargePelican

      I’ll take Ben. I think he’s a lock to make the merge. That Hero tribe is stacked. And there are a lot of guys who are bigger threats. Hopefully he’ll pick up the game strategy as he goes.

    • DrVanNostrand

      I’m still Costanza-ing my fantasy picks. Unfortunately, the witch took Ken 2.0, so I am left with Taylor 2.0: Devon. I am not a fan of the surfer douche.

      • Time for your final pick, Doc!

    • Sylvisual

      I’ll go with Alan. The Heroes tribe should be set for a few weeks, and as a younger pro athlete, he has a better chance in challenges than a Scot Pollard. Plus, seasons I’m not excited about initially tend to have “famous” people perform well.

    • Jared Holland

      Gimme Patrick

    • corndogshuffle

      Sorry everyone… I didn’t see that picks had started on here and I drove 600 miles yesterday!

      Anyway, I’ll take Ryan. I like the way he talks about the social game and not trying to be a super strategist until he has connections built up. If he really does stick to that I think he goes far.

      • You’re up again. I’m too lazy to update the site, but Mike took Simone and Roark.

    • Mike Hirsch

      Ok, for my first pick, I’m taking Simone. I like the cut of her jib, and the way she seems to absolutely loathe everyone else based on Wigler’s interviews. I like that, it feels like someone I can relate to.
      For my second pick, I’m taking Roark. Mostly so I can comment “You’re gonna hear me ROARk” every week she sticks around.
      Yeah. That won’t get irritating at all.

    • corndogshuffle

      I’ll take Ali. She seems smart, people like her and things like that. We’ll see what happens. On @disqus_kUlLAs6bSd:disqus

    • Jared Holland

      Ali

      • Ali is already taken.

        • Jared Holland

          *Desi

    • Sylvisual

      I dislike most of the people left. Usually I don’t like double dipping with my Pick-4, but I’ll go with Mike. We have the same initials, he likes Game of Thrones, and has the potential to be the strategist of the season. I could do worse.

    • DrVanNostrand

      Ashley. When I read her bio, her youthful optimism and can-do attitude were very annoying. Since no one else left jumps out as really hateable, that will have to do.

    • ExtraLargePelican

      The remaining players are Joe, Katrina, JP, and Lauren. Joe has “Tony Vlachos upside”. JP is basically guaranteed to make the merge but is also the blandest Survivor in recent memory. He also wants to apply his everyday moral code to playing Survivor. **vomits** I don’t think Katrina can win, not even on a fluke. And Lauren, who I actually sort of like, will have trouble relating to people.

      I already have one white male Hero, so JP is out. I choose Joe.

      • I was thinking the same thing so good on you for picking first.

    • And I guess that will leave me JP who will probably make the merge more often then Katrina and Lauren. So @purpletally:disqus end this long draft.

      • PurpleTally

        Eeny meeny miney Lauren.
        Leaving @disqus_GpYJ355BVM:disqus with Katrina.

    • Yah the draft is done

  • Mike Hirsch

    Let’s do this!

    • You’ve gotta wait on the witch.

      • Mike Hirsch

        I have to wait on everyone!

        • corndogshuffle

          Well, not John or Andy.

          • Mike Hirsch

            I did only get here by winning the Outcasts. I feel like my status as a Champion isn’t quite earned yet.

          • corndogshuffle

            Technically I didn’t win anything. They should change the league name to “Significantly Above Average League”.

          • Ouch.

          • corndogshuffle

            Cheap shot, I know.

      • Now, you have to wait on the Wentworth of the Coven and she won’t be here for a while.

  • corndogshuffle

    Woo! Go Cats!

    • You’re on the clock.

  • Mike Hirsch

    For my first pick, I will take Lucy. For my second pick, I will take Paul.
    (Me two years ago)

    • corndogshuffle

      Yikes

  • Ready to beat half these people

    • Time to make good on that. It’s your pick.

  • Mike Hirsch

    Sitting here, waiting for corndog to pick, and not sure who his pick will be while also trying to figure out who I want is maddening. I’m like https://frinkiac.com/video/Movie/Jfn_gZK7JikWKK69HZO7x4qeWSI=.gif

    • And you have to chose two people in a row.

      • Mike Hirsch

        I have changed my mind about four times so far today.

      • You’re up again. Pelican picked Joe.

    • corndogshuffle

      No Ryan for you. I’m all in on Ryan this season!

      • Mike Hirsch

        That actually helps me narrow things down, so thank you!

        • corndogshuffle

          I shoulda gone with Lauren just to make things harder for you…

  • corndogshuffle

    Did Barbara Anderson just win the Lauren Rimmer sweepstakes?
