After last week’s “passive” challenge, in which the penalties were none, but the Jungle Speed game exciting, it seems odd that this week’s “active” challenge was such a dud. I’m sure on a scrap of paper somewhere, this was the greatest idea.
Today (or rather, yesterday, something I tragically missed because of that Xbox One thing), the five remaining artists spent an hour forging President Obama’s signature and are graded by members of the Penny Arcade staff. Staffer Josh gives everyone shit for this reason or that, but ultimately, it’s the guys learning Obama’s signature and then replicating it as many times as possible as accurately as possible. The point? to demonstrate that they can consistently produce the same signature as often as possible for the sake of veracity. You don’t want to get sloppy when you’re hand-signing stuff!
At this point, there aren’t really any losers because the talent is so strong, so Katie’s left to send Abby and Tavis to the elimination chamber, which Mike says will be the most epic one yet. Here comes Friday!
