The finalists for the TV couple & character categories have been decided.
Below is a break down of the voting in each category.
Photos of the final vote tallies are at the bottom.
The character contest is always a tough one, because theres SO MANY good characters that get overlooked early on. Write in campaigns always pop up & this was no different. ONE write in campaign is a finalist... despite being caught with a bot. Only reason I am allowing it is... the amount of legit votes I know where posted would have easily made the contender a finalist.... so she is in. But I wont acknowledge how many votes were "cast" as a large portion of them were fake. Lets just say, for the sake of argument...if this happened next round, well, the characters fate wont be the same... despite a plethora of real votes. With 50+ the write in nominee.... this will be the largest semi-final vote.
The Couple vote also had bot issues (same character) but again, amount of votes made naturally was high, and when I called out the bot publicly... it stopped nearly immediately.
