The winning team moves on while the losing team is out. However, the players who won their games for the winning team will then decide on one person from their own team who lost (or did not play) to be replaced with a person from the losing team. Essentially this means that a player will make it to the finals based on reputation alone. Will this be the case? Only time will tell.
