Default BLEND-OFF: Round 4 - ELIMINATION ROUND! (read rules!)

HP Members still alive and kickin!

READ THE NEW RULES!


The FOUR flavors with the HIGHEST amount of votes in Poll 1 will be ELIMINATED from the contest…
and the THREE flavors from Poll 2 with the HIGHEST amount of votes will also be eliminated. On your Mark, Get Set, VOTE!

VOTES = BAD! Think of it like Survivor, ha.

Polls are located here:
- http://www.hookahhookah.com/hookahho....php?pageid=32

POLL 1 - Do NOT vote for HP Members:

(Need to not be in the highest FOUR vote getters)


-Like Mom Used to Make
- ... blended by kalutika (the come back kid)

-Teasin’ & Pleasin’ - ... blended by Dunkel

-Root Beer Float
-
... blended by Sambooka


POLL 2 - Do NOT vote for HP Members:
(Needs to not be in the top THREE vote getters)

-Santa's Sack -
... blended by Sambooka

-Shisha a la Martha - ... blended by shawnwhyte

-Shooting Spice -
... blended by MrBungle


Vote for the worst sounding blend out of all the others.
Before you vote, you can click to look at the results, if you so choose, so see who exactly is in the top vote getters, meaning most likely to be eliminated.

Poll 2 took off like a rocket and that makes me scared. I'm stuck in the middle of this mess. The top ten was my goal all along, and I'm so close!

I refreshed 5 times in 30 seconds and each one sent another vote my way... What did I do? ha

I wish I had a better description of my flavor. I tried to leave a comment on the poll itself. It's like a sweet cherry cola with a spice coating. Almost like Dr Pepper. It makes me want Christmas time.

I read and understood the rules when I placed my votes, (no I didn't vote for you or any other HP member).
I think changing up the voting scheme was a bad idea.

Ah yes you're right, I didn't really think of that. But man, it's almost certainly going to screw up the results. A good many people aren't going to note the rule change I think.

I was hoping like.. the top 5 vote getters through the first 3 rounds would get automatic top ten spots, and the last 12 would be put in a group poll, and you can vote up to 3-5 times for the flavors you want to join the others.

This competition is too complicated for me. Why don't they list all flavors and everyone can pick his own favorite instead of doing several rounds.

YES! It is ... why not just say "Pick Your Favorites??"

Well this sucks .. I"ll get you all the recipe for Root Beer Float and Santa's Sack cuz these rules are too confusing and they will probably get eliminated if people vote for them thinking they are voting for them, but really they are voting against them .. auuggghhh frustrating! and confusing!

They want to drag it out as long as possible to get more attention for their store.

We could do something like.. someone buys the 250g mix, and then distribute our own 50g to people to pay for the cost?

This is way too out of hand, and it's not fun anymore.

Is my blend really that bad "sounding"? I know from smoking it that it's delicious as hell.

Wish they would go back and change for format of this round. Trying not to sound like a poor loser, but something went haywire in poll 2.

Sambooka and I still have a chance in Poll 2 if you all vote for one of the following:

- O.P.P.
- Zen Arcadia
- Chocolate Covered Russian

I hate pointing fingers at specifics, but they are as in trouble as us, and it's us or them ha

And I have a chance if you vote for the three at the bottom of the first poll.

I feel like a jerk marking certain blends but ya gotta do what ya gotta do right?


Wait... so far you guys are safe. You are in the safe zone with three other blends above you for elimination.

This voting session seems underhanded and tricky I can't seem to see why HF did it this way. regardless I didn't vote for HP members. GO HP FTW!!!
