And a few additional side notes –
- Coupled Thoughts – Dave & Lis had a combined score of 149 while Matt & Ann had a combined score of 131
- Couple Disparity – Joseph & Lindsay and Donnie & Erin were 28 points apart as couples.
- Molly beat Bessie by 4 points and did an excellent job in starting off this new rivalry.
- 2 of the top 5 are dogs. Ouch.
- Last years lowest score of 13 by Rosemary M was improved upon all the way to 38! 25 points of improvement is impressive.
- Rhea & Olivia (yes they do pick their own) tied for lowest siblings but they shall be back next year with a vengeance….especially now that they know I will give them the money.
- We did not have ANY ties in 2014. Crazy!
- In 2015 I will be submitting a ballot, but not officially competing due to the 1 year ban I have accepted due to the travesty known as Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey wining in the same year.
- The two lowest adult scores in 2014 are Stacey & Neil but both are new to the Pool this year so I would expect major bumps in scoring in 2015.
- Speaking of 2015 Stacey has a free entrance in 2015.
Thank you again for participating as this makes it a lot more fun for all of us. Look forward to 2015 already (I really hope for better movies) and best of luck to all of you.
Finally….congratulations to Dave H on his triumphant and dominating win…
