So, a new season of The Amazing Race starts on Tuesday, with all new teams.  The teams resemble the teams from the last season.

I was thinking -- there are a fair amount of people here that watch.  We could have a contest.  This is how it goes.  

1. Before the season starts, write down the order in which you predict the teams will be eliminated.

2. For each week that a particular team is gone from the show AND gone from your list, then you get a point from that team.  Example: you pick Adam/Rebecca to be booted off on week 6.  However, they're booted off on week 3.  You don't start accruing points for them until week 6, when they're gone from your list.  Likewise, you pick Avi/Joe to go week 2.  They don't go until week 7.  You don't accrue points for them until week 7.  

3. Correctly pick the week that a team will be booted, and earn an extra number of points equivalent to the ordinal number that they are to go.  Example: you pick Adam/Rebecca to go on week 6, and they do, then you get 6 extra points.

4. The winner is the one with the most points.

5. Each person throws a game, old or new into the pot.  

6. Winner takes all.

7. If you want to play but not bet, then OK, but if you win, you don't get anything, and the pot goes to the betting player with the most points.

So, anybody interested?

Yeah, post here.  Everybody just post here, and I'll put it in an Excel sheet (or something) and email it out.

By the way, I'll put up an unopened boxed copy of Children of the Nile.

We actually had an office pool not that different from this a few years ago for Survivor...

The only problem was the fact that there are message boards where you could find out in advance who was going to be voted off.  Especially with money on the line, this wasn't the best thing.
