Bracket Battle Pick’em Contest: Week 1 Leaderboard

Bonjour Brilliant Beautiful Building Bracket Battle Best Buddies,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “B”)

As many of you know, the seventh edition of the Bracket Battle is back this summer. This time it’s to determine the best season of The Simpsons. However, this time, we have an added pick’em contest to go along with the Bracket Battle and the Addicts have been kind enough to provide a prize of $10 USD gift card (or equivalent) to one winner from the United States and one International winner.

While it’s too late to enter the contest now, the original contest post with rules can be found here.

A quick recap of the contest:

  • Basically everyone who entered made their 31 picks for who will win the 31 head-to-head matchups.
  • Every correct Round 1 (weeks 1-4) matchup is worth 1 point.
  • Every correct Round 2 (weeks 5-6) matchup is worth 2 points.
  • Every correct Round 3 (week 7) matchup is worth 5 points.
  • Every correct Round 4 (week 8) matchup is worth 10 points.
  • And correctly predicting the winner in Round 5 (week 9) is worth 20 points.
  • The two people (1 from US, 1 international) with the most points at the end of the Bracket Battle each win a prize.

So how am I doing so far?

  1. Buenos tardes on a Saturday

    I’m just having fun voting for my Favourite Seasons with my Favourite Episodes (it’s a Win / Win that The Simpsons are still going!) 🎉

  2. Part of the brac pack.

  3. The only thing that makes me feel less bad about my performance on the leader board is seeing that Wookie is in the same group as I am! 😅😉
