SYTYCD Rankdown 1.0 Winner - Courtney Galiano

SYTYCD Rankdown 2.0 Winner - Genessy Castillo

SYTYCD International Rankdown Winner - Jayme Rae Dailey

SYTYCD Rankdown 3.0 Winner - Lacey Schwimmer

SYTYCD Worldwide Rankdown Winner - Jenna Johnson

 

After a break from IDF, I'm back! And what better way to mark my return than with a new rankdown?

 

Or well, a 4.0 version of a beloved IDF rankdown. :haha: The last time this was held for just the US seasons was back in 2019, where longtime IDF favorite Lacey Schwimmer was crowned the winner. Since then, season 10's Jenna Johnson won the SYTYCD Worldwide Rankdown and season 17 aired in the summer of 2022. It's time to take the SYTYCD Rankdown back to its roots with just the 17 US seasons. How will the new dancers fare? Will another longtime IDF favorite rise to the top? Will Courtney, Genessy, Lacey or Jenna pull a Kristi Yamaguchi? Can a guy win? It's IDF, so probably not.  :giggle: Let's find out who will join the illustrious SYTYCD Rankdown Winners Circle.

 

It's time for chaos and pettiness with the SYTYCD Rankdown 4.0!

 

THE CAST

 The Rules:

-We will have a predetermined amount of rankers that will embark on a mission to collectively rank every dancer.

-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.

-THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EDITING ALLOWED ON YOUR POST WHEN YOU ARE CUTTING AND SAVING! IF YOU EDIT THAT POST FOR ANY REASON AT ALL, YOUR CUT AND SAVE IS NULL AND VOID!

 

To Play:

-You don't have to have seen every season of SYTYCD but I expect you to have seen a decent amount of seasons of it. It's also easy to find past seasons and dances on YouTube.

-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.

-BY SIGNING UP YOU AGREE TO NOT MAKE PERSONAL ATTACKS ON ANY OTHER RANKERS DURING THE GAME. IT'S OKAY TO BE PASSIONATE AND IT'S OKAY TO MAKE AND BREAK DEALS. IF I HEAR THINGS ARE GETTING CRAZY BEHIND-THE-SCENES I WILL KICK YOU OUT OF THE GAME AND FEEL NO GUILT ABOUT DOING SO.

 


THE APPLICATION

Name (However you want to be referred as during this game) -

Seasons Seen - 

Top 5 Dancers - 

Bottom 5 Dancers - 

Which 5 dancers do you find overrated? - 
Will you be active at least once every 24 hours? - 

Do you promise not to engage in personal attacks and understand I will kick you out of the game if you find out you are? -

Well, based on past Rankdowns, someone will cut Kayla then Diana will cut Jeanine and then you will cut Lauren, so probably not. :dead:

@*Amanda coming up with a format to keep Chelsie Hightower safe since she's not a ranker:

Me not being able to keep her safe is the sacrifice I have to make to host this. :haha:

I have heard it used to be intense!

 

Maybe I’ll join this time 😮 

 

 @*Wallace are you in? 👀

Yay! I love to see different people wanting to join. ❤️ 

 

Oh, it always is intense. All 3 versions are iconic for different reasons. 1.0 for being the original. 2.0 for the extreme pettiness that gave us the most random top 20 ever, and 3.0 for one of the most chaotic Final Cut rounds ever. :dead:

all you guys have to do is let Kayla win 4.0 and then LoFro and Jeanine can fight over 5.0 😇

Lol that's never gonna happen since Diana always cuts Jeanine, which ultimately hurts Kayla. :dead: 

 

LMAO oops, just saw Amanda pretty much saying the same thing. :lmao:

LOL you calling me out here. :dead: 

 

I will likely not participate in this game here. The last game still got me trigged with all that happened there. And my favorites that I want to make the finals will never get there, soooo what's the point in playing? :dead: I'll just be a viewer and hope the best for my faves.
