1. A person cannot compete against himself or herself.

2. A matchup cannot repeat.

3. Person 5 is new and cannot play in Round 1 so she can watch at least one round before playing.

4. Every round must be between two people competing for the first time or two people competing for the second time except for Round 3, which will have a person competing for the first time against a person competing for the second time.

5. The order of the pairings matter. For example, these are different ways:

1 vs. 2, 3 vs. 4, 5 vs. 1, 2 vs. 3, and 4 vs. 5

3 vs. 4, 1 vs. 2, 5 vs. 1, 2 vs. 3, and 4 vs. 5

6. The order of the two people within the pairing does not matter. 1 vs. 2 is the same as 2 vs. 1.
