Here are my picks.  I just hope they go in on RFF's league!  That wasn't clear to me!  When I clicked on RFF league, it went to AR4 & got some error message.  So I just clicked to Play and played!!  8) BTW, my guesses are just that!  The first week is a crap shoot!  :D

BIG BROTHER 4 Fantasy League Instructions

HOW TO PLAY THE BIG BROTHER FANTASY LEAGUE


In the BIG BROTHER Fantasy League, you get the chance to compete against other BIG BROTHER fans and win prizes. Simply pick four HouseGuests to be on your Team, then watch BIG BROTHER. Each time one of the HouseGuests on your Team performs one of 13 designated activities on the show, you score points. It's easy, and it's a fun way to play along with BIG BROTHER!


To register, fill in the form and choose a username and password. Don't forget to write down your username and password, and keep them in a safe place.
Pick your Team: choose 4 BIG BROTHER HouseGuests.
Watch BIG BROTHER on Tuesdays and Fridays at 8 pm ET/PT and Wednesdays at 8 pm ET/PT.
After the show, check this website to see how many points your HouseGuests scored. Also check the Leaderboard to see how you're doing compared to the other players.
Trade HouseGuests. You can switch the HouseGuests on your roster to try to score more points in the next episode.


Points are awarded in these categories:
Head of Household: You score 20 points if one of your Team wins the Head of Household Competition.
Nomination: You LOSE 10 points if a HouseGuest on your Team is nominated for eviction. If both nominees are on your Team, you lose 20 points.
Eviction: You LOSE 15 points if a member of your Team is evicted from the House.
Food Competition: You score 3 points for each HouseGuest on your Team who wins a Food Competition.
Kisses: You score 4 points any time one of your HouseGuests kisses another HouseGuest or is kissed.
Subtitles: You score 5 points any time one of your HouseGuests' speeches is subtitled.
Crying: You score 7 points for each distinct time one of your HouseGuests cries. Actual tears must be shed.
Appears in a Towel: You score 5 points whenever one of your HouseGuests appears wearing a towel as a substitute for clothes.
Shoots a Basketball: You score 3 points every time one of your HouseGuests shoots a basketball towards the basketball hoop.
Eats an Orange: You score 25 points if one of your Houseguests eats any part of a fresh orange
Plays a Game: You score 3 points any time one of your HouseGuests plays a game with another HouseGuest. This does not include Competitions.
Animals: You score 5 points any time one of your HouseGuests holds or feeds an animal


You can trade HouseGuests onto or off your Team any time of the week except during the 4-hour "Blackout Periods" that occur on show night following the East coast broadcast.

If one of your HouseGuests is evicted, you can add another HouseGuest in their place, so you'll always have 4 HouseGuests on your Team at all times.

After the BIG BROTHER 4 finale, the Top 100 players on the Leaderboard will be awarded a cool prize.

Check the Official Rules for more in-depth information.

Yippee Spooky  :D :D
 I'm still not to sure about the map thingy?? Oh well ..

I wasn't sure what the yield was  either ..so future reference ~~

The new season includes a component called "Yield," in which teams can slow down competitors by forcing them to wait for a pre-determined time. And teams on R5 will log more travel miles than ever before, journeying about 120,000 kilometres during their arduous odyssey.

Something to help our game questions..

The teams rush to get on one of three planes to Uruguay then take more cars and boats to checkpoints throughout the country.      Along the way, they encounter typical "Amazing Race" twists, like the "Detour," in which they have a choice of going one of two routes. In Tuesday's episode, they can either pull themselves along a cable between two tall buildings to get to the next clue, or gamble their way on a roulette wheel and run the risk of losing and having to go the cable route anyway, which costs precious time.
    This year, there is also a new element called "Yield." If contestants reach this point, they can use it to stop a team of their choice in its tracks for a specified time

Click this link Texan..if you made your picks you should be there somewhere

I guess we are not in RFF league..I could still create one if you all want?? The scores were so low that I'm sure we could make them up now that we have a feel of who's who..let me know?? OK?

okay, it says I have joined the league...but I do not even see me on the individual picks.   ???

If we want to play as a team maybe we need to set up a new league undere TAR5 now that it is open.  Either way is fine with me.... off to see if media whore has updated.
