Temptation SHOULD Involve Risk
09/11/17 05:21 PM




There wasn’t any element of risk vs. reward to the one who took the temptation. What if the $25K involved a threat that if you were evicted first the HoH gets the money? Would as many people have risked it? This is akin to the bounty on your head and it may need to be three weeks and not one.

What would you need to risk for three weeks of safety? It would need to be bigger. The money example you’re not losing anything that you came in with so it’s fairly benign. What if you risked the forced nom Ramses had? What if you didn’t get to choose when that happened? Is the three weeks too small a prize for this risk?

What if taking the initial money meant you leave the house and go home?

The Ring Of Replacement was fine, but there needed to be a downside. Same with the Halting Hex. What would you give up to have those powers? That in and of itself is a great question — do the HGs bid and the one who bids the most wins. In the past they’ve done things like that with shaving or dying heads and in another case season-long slop bids. Where is that fight and devotion?

Money temptations, lesser amounts, that if you take them, you get a secret vote if you get put on the block. One week or more is open to discussion and this potentially becomes more important late in the season. I just realized there needs to be some ‘known’ downside.
