Hello everybody! It's Jacka back and ready to host a smaller scale game than usual.

This will be my first game outside of my VS Series so I'm interested to see the reception for it.

As you might have noticed from the title, this game is called:

The X Factor: Bottom League


The premise of Bottom League is that only acts who ranked the lowest in their category during the Live Shows are eligible to enter. For this first series, only acts from the UK show will be featured but if this is a success then we may look at Australia and the US in a later series.

For now anyway, I need judges! I want four judges to mentor each of the four categories: Boys, Girls, Over 28s and Groups. The acts who will be featured in each category will be listed below. You have until 6pm on Sunday 15th September to PM me your interest. If I feel I have the right judges applied before then I will close the applications early so get in quick!

The acts who will be taking part in the competition are:

Boys
Tabby Callaghan (Series 1)
Phillip Magee (Series 2)
Ashley McKenzie (Series 3)
Andy Williams (Series 4)
Scott Bruton (Series 5)
Rikki Loney (Series 6)
Nicolo Festa (Series 7)
James Michael (Series 8)
Rylan Clark (Series 9)

Girls
Roberta Howett (Series 1)
Chenai Zinyuku (Series 2)
Nikitta Angus (Series 3)
Kimberley Southwick (Series 4)
Laura White (Series 5)
Rachel Adedeji (Series 6)
Treyc Cohen (Series 7)
Sophie Habibis (Series 8)
Jade Ellis (Series 9)

Over 28s
Verity Keays (Series 1)
Maria Lawson (Series 2)
Dionne Mitchell (Series 3)
Daniel DeBourg (Series 4)
Daniel Evans (Series 5)
Jamie Archer (Series 6)
Storm Lee (Series 7)
Jonjo Kerr (Series 8)
Carolynne Poole (Series 9)

Groups
2 to Go (Series 1)
Addictiv Ladies (Series 2)
The Unconventionals (Series 3)
Futureproof (Series 4)
Bad Lashes (Series 5)
Kandy Rain (Series 6)
F.Y.D. (Series 7)
2 Shoes (Series 8)
MK1 (Series 9)

Hope you all enjoy the show and vote even if you don't want to take part. To apply as a judge please fill out the following form:

Now we know what was the mystery game project you had in mind all those months back.

It's a great idea and everyone should get involved in this!

I have near enough confirmed three of four judges. Just waiting for a reply from one person to confirm their seat on the panel. However, keep the applications coming in, just in case someone drops out!

Good idea for a game. I shall be watching when I can and also wasn't Amelia Lily the first to go in the girls instead of Sophie? Unless her being reinstated counts as her not being eliminated but just making sure

Yeah, I was going to put Amelia but then I realised she actually ended up being the highest ranked Girl of that series, with Sophie being the lowest ranked so I went with Sophie.

I also realise Tabby from Series 1 was in the Final but he was also the lowest ranked Boy (as he was the only male in the 16-24s)

Introducing THE JUDGES THREE-CHAIR CHALLENGE!

On Wednesday night, each judge will be introduced to their category at their very own Judges Houses. Taking inspiration from the new formats in the UK and US shows, each judge will only have Three Chairs at their house, which represents the three spaces each judge has in their category.

Each act will perform a reprisal of their original Judges Houses performance (if I can find it) before the acts mentor asks them to take a seat or not. Judges may switch out an act into a seat in the place of another act if they feel necessary. After all four acts have performed, one will be left standing. This act will be eliminated and the Top 12 will be revealed.

Each judge will not know what category they have until they arrive at Judges Houses on Wednesday night. The judges will be allowed to select where they are hosting their Judges Houses and up to two celebrity guests if they desire.

After the Judges Three-Chair Challenge, the Top 12 acts will go into Live Shows starting on Sunday night.

So judges, for now Ė please do tell us which category are you hoping to get, where are you going for Judges Houses and who are your Celebrity Guests?

Please note that the judges categories have been allocated using a RNG as well as taking into consideration some previous shows by them to give them the best category for them.

Well for me, I would like the girls (they seem very strong) or the groups cause I haven't mentored those for a while now.

Oh yeah and for judges houses, I would be taking my chosen category to Miami! (Florida)

And with me, I'll have the one and only Jennifer Hudson (She knows all about girl power) and Leona Lewis! (She's been there and done it all)
