Elimination No. 8
"Elimination #8" is the proper title of this article. The title is changed due to a technical limitation.
Two veterans of the elimination stage must again face the Creators and draw for their fates.
Date: May 24, 2013
Tavis and Abby face The Creators. Tavis pulls "Theatre" from the Wastebasket of Broken Dreams and Abby pulls "Cats". Abby cashes in her Redraw Ticket to replace "Theatre" and pulls "Cars". They are given 90 minutes to draw a comic combining both of those ideas. Mike redraws the corrections to Abby's standee that she had blacked out. Tavis concedes that he is taking a gamble by only drawing a two-panel strip. In the judging, both Mike and Jerry laugh at Abby's comic, while declaring that Tavis' gamble did not pay off. They lament how easy their decision is. In the car, Abby describes her comic and Tavis responds, "Tell everybody at the house that I love them." Back in the arena, Mike slow rolls by saying, "Abby, I'm sorry... but you're stuck in the house for another day." Having eliminated Tavis, they fold his comic up and place it in a tiny coffin, giving it to Kathleen to go bury. In his exit interview, Tavis confesses to having drawn a blank on the Cats and Cars subject and wonders if he psyched himself out by missing his wife and son. Mike and Jerry talk to Tavis and prepare him for an influx of fans. Abby returns to the house as part of the final four.
- Abby was upset at pulling "Cars" with her Redraw Ticket. She and Tavis had discussed on the way over that they found cars difficult to draw.
- The mouse car in Tavis's strip is a Truly Nolen Pest Control vehicle.
