Slim, Your fixation with Jim is becoming disturbing in a weird sort of way.

Enough already please.

Adopt a dog or a cat or find a girl friend, but please no more Jim posts from you.

The image I'm picking up is a chrome briefcase opened to flaunt the supposed million at Jim before he wins the challenge. It will turn out however, on live TV no less, that really all Criss has done is the old hundred dollar bill on top of newspaper trick that you see in the movies. Old as the trick may be, Criss will claim it to be his own. This of course happens after Criss is tackled by the extra security that was hired for the final show as he tries to make his Bond villain-esque escape with the briefcase.

It's going to be a great show.

At this point, I would counsel Jim to push for the envelopes to be held by Brinks or some other neutral, secure custodian.

I wouldn't put it past CA to have "multiple outs."

In addition, it would heighten the drama and hype for the show.

Finally, perhaps the envelopes ought to be "kept in a hermetically sealed mayonnaise jar and stored at Funk & Wagnall's since noon (of the day of the finale) to prevent any cheating." Smile

I'm sure that Jim has the angles covered, but I would suggest submitting his prediction to a trusted outside party first, and then have Angel open the envelopes BEFORE Jim's prediction is revealed. I know that theatrically that is less effective, but in this case, I think it will throw a wrench into Angel's "works".

I think this whole thing is a publicity stunt from the word go.
Of course Jim is not getting the million. Too bad!

I assure you it is NOT scripted. There have been hundreds of possible twists and turns, but this is the path it has taken. NBC and others will capitalize along the route but many of these things are unpredictable.....maybe inevitable, but not scripted.

All Jim has to do is whip out the old Universal Drawing. It's worked for me on many challenge occasion's Smile.

This is all smelling really fishy to me - what with the parading of the envelope in this week's show - "...all will be revealed so tune in next week..."
Also I did not use the word scripted. I said planned.

He said that he would have the envelope with him at every show so Uri or Jim could take a shot at it. They need to play it up...ratings are slipping Smile
Looks like Callahan is ready and he wants the cash.

Doesn't matter if he wins or loses, he's back in the Limelight. Good career move.

Jim always wins because he knows how to shuffle reality

Never shuffle reality without the packet clip on your holdout.
...think not that all wisdom is in your school. You may have studied other paths,but, it is important to remember that no matter who you are or where you come from, there is always more to learn.
