May Madness III - the 2014 championship version has ended. The TV Character Champion has been crowned.
The MAY MADNESS 2014 tournament TV CHARACTER CHAMPION - LAUREN LEWIS (Zoie Palmer) "Lost Girl"
After close to 200 nominees & automatic entrants for the tournament, we eventually ended up with 64 very fitting contenders for the 3rd annual crown.
With both former champions still on active shows, the 3rd battle could potentially be a champ vs champ showdown.
However, the defending champion Dean Winchester (Supernatural) had a rough draw in the Elite Eight and went up against another character from his show, and lost.
This left the Championship to be decided between the 2012 Champion Dr. Lauren Lewis of "Lost Girl" & the 14th seed in his division, Castiel from "Supernatural".
Going into the finals, I expected a nail biter as both challengers seemed to be growing in support. But in the end, an influx of LEGITIMATE Chinese voters (as well as the 1 spammer who tried circimventing the rules) for Lost Girl star Dr. Lauren Lewis gave her a convincing enough win that I would say it was not much of a contest.
Dr. Lauren Lewis (Lost Girl) (2044 - 657) 1387
Castiel (Supernatural) 944
Funny stat from this, Votes from China 455-3 for Lauren. So China singlehandedly won the tournament for her....barely. So you Lauren fans should thank whoever brought the attention to a Chinese fan site on Baidu.com . That was the difference maker for your fave in the last 2 or 3 rounds.
Lauren Lewis (played by Zoie Palmer ) becomes the 1st 2 time champion of May Madness. While runner up Castiel makes it the furthest he has yet, his previous best 2 years ago was the final four where he lost to.. .Lauren Lewis, as she went on her way to her 1st May Madness title.
Rest up fans, its only about 4 1/2 months till the nominations for the 2014 Best Of TV Awards starts. See you then.
