Winner: Stephen

▶️ Episodes

This starts out as "no prizes" for these predictions, just saying stuff and seeing what happens.

But after the event, when some are right and some are wrong, there is suddenly a lot more temptation to start grading and ranking.

The... Scores?

  • Stephen: 80%
  • Federico: 60% (not a typo)
  • Myke: 40%

As this wasn't expected to be strictly graded at first, there is some contention about how to grade the results. Federico advocates for weighing based on importance. Stephen argues for percentages. It is widely agreed that Myke has lost. Myke insists that as the loser, he picks the winner, and picks Stephen. Federico deems this a conspiracy. After some bickering, Myke declares that the scores are as above, and the issue is settled.
