As revealed in last night’s mole free Strictly Spoiler (more on that later) Jason and Luba have been eliminated after losing in the dance off to Nicola and Katya.
Complaints to The BBC
You can relive their Salsa from week 2 in the video below:
You can still vote in this week’s poll and tell me who got your votes/who your favourites were. Like always you can select up to 3 options. Unless you are a robot. Then you can select zero options!
I just want to take a quick moment to talk about the spoiler this weekend. As most of you know I’ve been working on a backup plan to source and deliver a spoiler through the off season. I trialled it last weekend and it worked but this was the first weekend we had to go live with it due to the new lockdown in England getting rid of the Strictly audience. This was a big risk, a lot of people said it couldn’t be done and I’ve had many people basically saying that I was guessing the results even though it was a bit more scientific than that as I used precisely the same method The BBC do to generate their results.
The last two weeks however have shown that it can be done, I can predict the public vote accurately or at least accurately enough to generate a correct bottom two which is what matters to us. In addition I now have some further sources that I cant elaborate on but they will allow me to confirm or correct the spoiler my polls have generated over the course of the weekend.
We’ve got 3 more weeks of this and my intention at the moment is to basically do what happened this weekend which is:
- A spoiler based on my polls will be posted on a Saturday night. This will come with all the usual disclaimers that it has been generated using poll data may not be accurate as it is subject to further confirmation
- Once that confirmation is received the spoiler will either be confirmed or corrected. This will likely happen at some point Sunday morning
Those of you who must know ASAP are probably best checking the site Saturday night like normal but also checking again Sunday when I have confirmation. Also follow me on Facebook or Twitter as I will keep those networks apprised as to the latest developments as they happen. If accuracy is your bag you are best checking some time around Sunday lunch time by which point I should have had confirmation of the results.
These are unprecedented times but I’ve spent the off season preparing for them, I am more than ready, I continue to be able to deliver the results you crave at an acceptable reliability level in these covid times even without audience moles and will hopefully be able to keep operating throughout when many other sources are understandably struggling this year and at the moment it does seem from the other sources that all eyes are on me right now.
Speaking of operating providing this site is still going to cost me close to £1000 this series. I always stress this on the donation links but it is more important than ever in 2020 that you only consider helping me out with these costs if you can afford to do so. I would not want to cause anyone else hardship because they chose to help me out. However all donations are as ever gratefully received. You can make a one time donation by clicking on THIS LINK or using the button below:
Also new for 2020 you can make a regular donation by becoming a patreon. Donations on patreon start at just the price of a coffee a month and if the patreon page takes off I can start looking at patreon exclusive content/rewards.
There’s also ways you can help me out for free and even make some money yourself by doing so. One way I’ve been plugging on social media a lot these last few weeks is by checking your energy prices and earning yourselves £50 in the bargain by switching using my magic link (you must complete the switch using the link and not just get a quote which you come back to later). Octopus energy have 100% green electricity, are a Which recommended supplier and were one of the few suppliers to maintain a full telephone service during the pandemic. They’re a different supplier to the one I was recommending last series and are definitely worth a look as we head into the colder months.
Switching energy suppliers is quick (it takes about 2 minutes to sign up from my link and usually about 3 weeks for the process to complete), there is no interruption to your energy supply, no engineers have to visit and you don’t need to change you meters (unless you sign up to a smart tariff and don’t have a compatible meter). I get £50 from every switch so this does help me out quite a bit.
Alternatively you can help me out by doing things as simple as liking all my content, sharing it and getting involved in the discussions on the social networks. This all helps to increase my visibility and get me noticed on those networks and is also appreciated!
