Just now, *Amanda said:




I am trying to hold out on the rounds that are rankdown staples until we have a 5th ranker, so our next cycle will play out the same way as the previous one. Group nominations will take the place of the 5th ranker again.



1. When it is their turn each ranker will nominate 8 celebrities.

2. On a first come, first serve basis, the remaining 3 rankers will cut and save 1 celeb each.

3. You have 30 minutes from your initial cut post to produce a 100-word write-up in order for the cut to be valid. After 30 minutes are up, the celebs will be up for grabs again.

4. After all 3 cuts have been made, the three rankers will vote to save one celeb. The celeb with the least amount of votes will be cut and the nominator is responsible for their write-up.

5. During the group nomination round, each ranker will PM me 2 celebs for nominations and all 4 of you will cut and save from that pool of nominees.

6. You cannot nominate any celebs saved in the round right before yours.

7. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EDITING OF YOUR INITIAL CUT/SAVE POST FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER. If you need to fix something, quote it in a new post with the change.

8. You have 24 hours to make your cut/save. I WILL start enforcing this rule much more strictly so we can actually finish the rankdown. If you need an extension, please ask me. Otherwise, the nominator gets to stage a takeover when 24 hours have passed.

Immune for Group Nominations:

Saffron Barker

Jorgie Porter

Tim Campbell

Danell Leyva


Please PM me the two celebrities you want to nominate for the group nominations round!




Since all of the rankdowns are starting to wind down, it's time to introduce a new one into the mix. This rankdown will focus on contestants hailing from international versions of the television show Dancing With the Stars. The rankers will decide which 250 or so international contestants will be included in this rankdown and then rank them as we do in all other rankdowns.





*Chris (Nico Archambault)

*Lily (Motsi Mabuse)

rpryor03 (Craig Revel Horwood)

Stephhyy (Kym Herjavec)

*Wallace (Tristan MacManus)


The Rules:

-We will have a predetermined amount of rankers that will embark on a mission to collectively rank every celebrity chosen to be in this rankdown.

-At the beginning of the round random.org will determine the order the rankers will nominate.

-Whoever is chosen to nominate first will nominate a predetermined amount dancers and the other rankers will have 24 hours to save one dancer and eliminate one. To eliminate and save once the nominations have been revealed, it's first come first serve so get to it fast!

-Since this is a ranking you should have a writeup prepared for whoever you're cutting to explain your reasoning (they don't have to be too long, I expect just a minimum of 100 words).

-After decisions have been made on those dancers, the next ranker on random.org will do the same thing, nominate a predetermined number of contestants (you can not nominate anyone who was just saved in the last set of cuts though) and the other rankers will save one and eliminate one.

-We will cycle through all the rankers until they have nominated and then the round will end.

-At the beginning of each new round I will reveal a pre-planned twist to the round, and we will also create a new nominating order from random.org

-Once the nominations are posted you will have 24 hours to make your cut and save. If you do not make your cut in time (unless you tell me you're going to be away) you will get a strike and whoever made the nominations can make the cut and save. Three strikes and you're out and I get to name a new ranker in your place.

-If you wanna get your cut in right when you see the nominations and wanna take time for your write-up, you can post who you're cutting and saving and then you'll have half an hour to make a new post with your write-up. However, the contestants is back up for grabs if you take too long to edit. When I say half an hour, I mean 30 minutes. If you make your cut and save at 12:15, you have until 12:45 to post your writeup. Another ranker cannot swoop in and take your cut and save until 12:46! YOU CAN RESET YOUR TIME ONLY ONCE IF YOU ARE WORKING ON YOUR WRITEUP FOR A LONG TIME

-Make sure all your nominees are within the confines of the twists and the rules of the game (i.e. no one who has already been eliminated or was saved last round are among your nominees). If this rule is broken, I'm afraid the round resets and you will have to completely renominate.



To Play:

-You don't have to have seen every season/version of DWTS but I expect you to have seen a decent amount of seasons of it. Wikipedia and Youtube/Dailymotion are your friends. Utilize them.

-Every time I have seen this game get played people will inevitably go for the big dogs and it WILL get cutthroat. If this does not sound like your kind of game don't sign up. DEALS ARE ENCOURAGED.

-I expect you to be active enough that you can write about 100 words about 1 contestant every 24 hours. If you don't think you can log on once days to do at least that, don't sign up :bleh:. If you plan on going on vacation or being away for a while, just let me know and I can get a substitution for you while you're away.

-There will be an application you have to fill out so I can make sure I don't have 7 or 8 rankers who all have similar opinions. However, I do plan on choosing rankers who have seen the most seasons to participate or first come, first serve.

-You don't have to even be super active on the boards to play! If you're a more mysterious poster, that might make it easier for you to hide your faves and help them sneak through the cracks.


The Application:


IDF Username 

Real Name (If comfortable disclosing) 

Versions/Seasons Watched - 

Will you be active at least once a day for duration of the game? -

Please list the celebrities you would like to see in this rankdown. Include which version and season they appeared on.

Amanda whenever she starts a new rankdown and all the replies are I WON'T PLAY BUT I'LL FOLLOW ALONG:




21 minutes ago, *Amanda said:

My goal is to have 5 rankers since  think more than 5 likely won’t happen. :haha: 

Didn't the International SYTYCD game have 5 rankers? The Strictly game had 5 too. But hopefully we an get Ariel and Richard involved.

I can’t wait to see who does better in rankdowns, US DWTS Pamela Anderson or French DWTS Pamela Anderson.


13 minutes ago, Elliott said:

What about Argentinian DWTS Pamela Anderson?



5 minutes ago, *Chris said:

If the French one are including, maybe I’ll have to sign up! 

I'm sure you can suggest some dancers from the French version. :yes: That's a DWTS version I check through wiki and always wanted to watch but never got to doing so.

Go and watch some of Loïc Nottet's dances on YouTube. You won't be disappointed.


They had a really bad series in 2019 though, none of the celebs were good. Only a few of the pros are decent as well.

Oooh i heard of him. 😮 I'll consider this.


2019 seemed to be a bit of a rough year it seems. :haha:  Yikes that no one was good from that year.

2019 seemed to be a bit of a rough year it seems. :haha:  Yikes that no one was good from that year.

Could have been better if they hired pros who knew what they were doing - as a result, one of the few good ones has 4 wins.


Some of them have been called out over using choreo from SCD & DWTS USA.

LOL I heard of this and saw some routines that were rehashes of other DWTS US and SCD routines. :dead: That is quite yikes and uncreative. :haha:
