J! Quickcap: 7/25/2022

Let’s hope we finish the season strong on this final week.

And surprisingly enough, a host has STILL not been announced yet for next season.

  1. Based on today’s outcome, and this being the last week of the regular season with 4 more shows to go after this one, there can be no more 5xCs this season…no matter what happens the rest of this final week, qualifications for next season’s ToC are now closed. As of the season premiere coming in September, all 5xCs will qualify for the ‘23-‘24 ToC.

    By the way, all three players were way off line in the F! question. Just like the White Wing Dove, the former champ’s reign flew away.


    1. Actually, Ed can be a 5xC by sweeping this week, but is very likely cut off from eligibility for the next ToC and would be put on the roster for the following ToC.

      Though, based on recent trends over the last month, I’m very doubtful that will happen, but I also doubt we will be skunked this week as we narrowly avoided it going 1-4 last week.

      Monday losses are unique so that a sweep alert (by the new Monday champ) is still possible while also opening up the possibility of a skunk threat, and I’ve thought of adding this to next season’s version of the J! stats (inspired by Andynwof):

      Returning Champion SWEEPS (5-0 or 4-1 (after starting 0-1)): 1
      4-1 (after starting 1-0): 5
      3-2: 3
      2-3: 1
      1-4: 3
      Returning Champion SKUNKINGS: 2
