Lately, lots of fans have been asking in the comments if there is an official list of "good/bad ideas" available to look at. While the Wiki up until now told us what every experiment's verdict was and the percentage of "good ideas" that each microwave girl received during her run, there hasn't been an actual tally of "good/bad ideas." That is what this page will represent. Jon has long told new viewers who doubt that there is ever a "good idea" verdict that around ⅓ of the verdicts turn out to be "good ideas." Is this statistic true? Overall, does ⅓ of the verdicts consist of "good ideas"? And how about the breakdown by season? As Jory would say, let's find out!

AnalysisEdit

**Note: Post-season 10 statistics/verdicts are not included in the analysis other than in the overall percentage of "good ideas," due to the data being too skewed from too few experiments.**

  • The overall percentage of "good ideas" is about 42%, which is higher than Jon's predicted 33.3%. However, Jon made a very good estimate of how many "good ideas" there are.
  • No season has Jon's estimate of exactly 33.3% "good ideas." However, One microwave (Esmeralda) Jon's estimate of exactly 33.3% good ideas.
  • There are 8 seasons that had a higher percentage of "good ideas" than Jon predicted.
  • There are 2 seasons that had a lower percentage of "good ideas" than Jon predicted.
  • The season with the highest percentage of "good ideas" is season 10.
  • The season with the lowest percentage of "good ideas" is season 9.
  • The microwave girls who had the highest total of "good ideas" were Diane and Lacey (11).
