Good evening everyone, and welcome to the Haven Time Machine : 2010s Round 13 results show.
First order of business is to thank PurpleCareBear and rubcale for voting as non-participants. Given the music you were subjected to, you really didn't have to. But your involvement is very much appreciated.
To make a slight change, tonight I have decorated the results tiles with quotes that some of you sent me alongside your results. I've kept these quotes anonymous, and I haven't just included the negative ones. I hugely enjoyed reading your comments, and I think many of them should be shared.

Tonight will see the denouement of the individual competition. Alongside all the glory, the winner earns the right to host the next edition of Haven Time Machine, and to choose the decade that we will be playing.
Let's just run through the permutations.
6 people could still win Haven Time Machine : 2010s.
Thorne starts with a lead of 7 points. Therefore, with bonus points available for most 30 points and fewest 0 points, he needs to finish in the Top 4 to win without needing to worry about anyone else's result. raliverpool must finish a minimum of 5 places higher than Thorne, and ahead of greendemon and Smurfie. greendemon must finish a minimum of 6 places higher than Thorne, and ahead of raliverpool and Smurfie. Smurfie must finish a minimum of 9 places higher than Thorne, 2 places higher than greendemon and 3 places higher than raliverpool. Razzle Dazzle must finish a minimum of 10 places higher than Thorne, 4 places higher than raliverpool, 3 places higher than greendemon and ahead of Smurfie. smokeyb could still win, but needs the top 5 to have a shocker, whilst he finishes right at the pointy end.
At the bottom, Jordan needs to finish 8 places higher than vastarin er to avoid the wooden spoon.
This is one of the 3 that would have been in contention for a top 5 spot for me in a normal round — definitely a 0-pointer here. I didn’t write the “enjoyable summery song” quote, but I could have done.
