It’s Bachelorette Monday!
Today's the day!
So. What do you need to know before tonight?
Sign up is open! It will actually still be open until next Monday at noon. There are always people who are out of town/forgot about the premiere/didn't realize that they wanted to play. We get it, of course. But there's something that new signups need to know about the draft. Please see my next point:
The clock is ticking on the first part of the draft. After 8:00 PM ET tonight (Monday, May 28), anyone who hasn't made draft selections will have their first three Bachelors randomly assigned. You can still sign up to play until next Monday, and you'll still be able to select your fourth Bachelor. But after 8:00 PM ET tonight, your first three Bachelors will be assigned to you from each of the three Bachelor groups.
- You MUST be logged in to access the draft page. If you're not logged in, you'll be redirected to a sign up page.
- Sign up will remain open until next Monday, June 4 - so the payment link will still be on your page (unless you ask me to take it off). As long as you're listed as a confirmed participant, you don't have to worry about that, though!
- All confirmed/paid players are posted on your league page.
- Draft Selections are currently linked on your league page. Keep in mind, I do have to manually update this, so they don't show up instantaneously. Thanks for your patience!
The Pre-Season bonus points form will remain open until next Monday, but at 8:00 tonight the bonus question for Episode 1 disappears. This is a super easy way to get some extra points and maybe pull ahead of someone in your league who drafted the same Bachelors as you!
- Pre-Season Bonus: Answer episode-by-episode questions, worth 25 bonus points each.
- Bach Sadness Weekly Matchup: The Bachelors will face off in head-to-head matchups. Tell me which dude in each pairing will receive more points each Monday night for the chance to win a Bachelor-themed prize. New matchups will be posted each Tuesday.
East Coasters (and Central!), while you're watching tonight, keep an eye on this post (it's also linked on your league page for easy reference). I'll be updating points throughout the episode, so you'll know immediately who's out to a fast lead. I'm really excited to see how our new scoring system works. I hope you guys like it!
League Standings including Bonus Points, will be updated on your league pages tomorrow, as soon as I can get them updated. Hopefully before mid-day!
Live Standings on your League Page: WILL NOT HAPPEN TONIGHT. I should be able to get this sorted out for Episode 2, though.
As always, if you have questions, just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, have fun and make sure you're here for the right reasons.
