    While still very good, CR and FRWL rank somewhere around the middle for my own list. I don’t like using this term for this, but for me I guess they’d be the most “overrated” of the bunch. I would have pegged TSWLM as most underrated, but it finished way better than expected here and is roughly where it’d be on my own list. I guess YOLT and / or LALD will do, as I find the former easily Top 5 and the best possible conclusion to the original adventures (sorry TMWTGG) and the latter just having fantastic entertainment value.

    You switch SPY and TMWTGG and you pretty much have my personal rankings.

    If LALD’s place would be taken by TB, my top 10 would be entirely intact. Having said that, great overall result, and, more importantly, it has been a lot of fun! :)

    Probably the most reasonable end result of any Elimination Game I've participated in. Personally I don't put CR that high, or TMWTGG that low, but I fully understand why they ended up where they did.

    Is it the only Elimination Game where all entries are actually good?
