To make sure you’re here for the right reasons, we wanted to share a couple of recommendations on how to run your Draft.
Regardless of how you draft, we suggest making a night of it – gather all your Teams together in one place, share some gossip, and hold an in-person draft. Alternatively, if everyone is too busy sipping vino by the pool, you can easily hold your draft over e-mail. As Commissioner, the choice is up to you:
The Traditional "Snake" Draft
Determine a draft order for the Teams, by seeing who can come up with the most creative date, who can come closest to guessing how many times the words “connection” or “journey” are used during the first episode, or simply picking out of a hat (any other random method of your choosing will do). Then hold a “snake” draft to pick one Contestant per round of the draft – the Team with the first pick in round one, picks last in round two; the Team with the second pick in round one, picks second to last in round two, etc. Once a Team picks a Contestant during the draft, that Contestant is “spoken for” and no other Team may select that Contestant.
The "Random" Draft
For those Commissioners who love set-ups and a little adventure, you can randomly assign Contestants to each Team. Any method will do, and we encourage creativity and variety, just as long as all the Teams end up with the same number of Contestants, with no Contestant appearing on more than one Team.
