August 21. Just do it, it's late as hell but next year just build in an extra backup week.

Doing it tomorrow would be even more insane than a leftover show, by the way. Can't believe a finalist would want that.

Since the forum and website is gone, is any of you got the later version ?
Just curious.

Yeah, letís not go down this rabbit hole.

I'm in favor of playing Monday on the fill in the blank show.

We've had enough "fill in the blank" FPGs by now to know that they aren't always super predictable at all. With slotting and results, there should be enough to differentiate 4 people from each other. I don't like doing FPG on a week with a missing day nearly as much. I feel like particularly the quickies become a random guessing game at that point.

I agree that August is way too late.

I'm on mobile; don't hurt me

I vote for having it this Friday.

Having a fill-in-the-blank day would make it too predictable IMO, and waiting until August is just way too late.

I believe there are later versions, but none released publicly since he was served with a cease and desist letter from Fremantle.
