2017 Character Cup Winner and Stats




2017 Character Cup Winner

Alex Danvers

 




63+ polls later and we have a winner! Congratulations to the Supergirl fandom for voting Alex Danvers to the top in the second closest finale in Character Cup history. While Jamie from Outlander led for most of the 24-hour poll, Alex started gaining in the last few hours and pulled off the victory by a mere 143 votes. (Our first finale between Jack from LOST and Clark from Smallville had a 142 vote difference.) What an exciting Character Cup this was! It just goes to show how each vote matters. To become the winner, Alex defeated Chuck Bartowski, Klaus Mikaelson, Sara Lance, Sarah Manning, Buffy Summers, and Jamie Fraser. She also had the most votes in a single poll with 2,571 and finished the contest with 6,868 votes altogether, more than any contestant last year and second only to Jamie this year. As the winner, she joins Jack from LOST, Dean and Castiel from Supernatural, and Root and Shaw from Person of Interest in our Hall of Retired Winners.

Congratulations to Supergirl fans and all other fandoms who supported their favorites. Jamie from Outlander was the only other character to have more than 2,000 votes in a single round, while Buffy and Bellamy were the only other characters with over 1,000 votes in a single poll. Our breakout character this year was Eleven from Stranger Things, who made it all the way to the Elite Eight. I'm looking forward to seeing where she ends up next year. Over in the Them Song Contest, our winner was the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme, with the Big Bang Theory theme placing second. Thanks to everyone who participated in this mini-contest. I hope you had fun reminiscing about old favorites and maybe even finding some new ones. If you have suggestions for next year's mini-contest, please put them in the comments below.

Interested in other stats for the 2017 Character Cup?  Check out the stats page here.  Normally there would be an updated bracket in it, but my usual computer has gone kaput so I will add the finished bracket whenever I can get it fixed.  If there are other stats you are interested in, let me know and I will try to add them.  Thanks for making this such a fantastic contest!




Prediction Contest Winner:
 
Noor





In a competition where odds-on favorites went out quicker and newcomers stayed longer, this Character Cup made it even harder than usual to predict for me. Not so much these guys. Congratulations to Noor for earning 86 points and taking first place in our predictions. Woo hoo! Awesome job! Bragging rights are yours for the year! (Unless you want something from my old Supernatural stuff as a prize. Come on, you know you do.) Only 1 point behind, Joasiary and Amber Lacey tied for second. Again, very impressive. Panos came in third with 83 points to round out our leaderboard. I hope that everyone who participated had fun no matter where you placed. This year we did a straight up point value, meaning that every poll was worth the same number of points, but before we used a graduated points system so every round was worth twice as many points as the previous round. Just for fun, I ran filtered the predictions through the graduated system too. Under that system, Joasiary would be the top predictor with 145 points, Noor would be second with 141 points, and Amber Lacey and Maria Sol would tie for third with 139 points. Congratulations again to everyone who won and best of luck next time to the rest of us.




Thanks:



Thank you to everyone for making this the best Character Cup I've ever organized. I appreciate all the people who followed the rules and made this a fair competition.  It is the first time in 2 years that we have not had to disrupt the contest to deal with an overwhelming amount of cheating. For some reason this contest seems to inspire people to try to mutli-vote, once getting so bad that the contest stopped for two full years. Therefore, I cannot put into words just how grateful I am for all the honest people who participated. You restored my faith in humanity and made the 2017 Character Cup a true pleasure to host. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Thanks also to everyone who participated in the TV Talk Topics, my favorite part of the contest. It was awesome talking TV with all of you. I'm sorry we were not able to get to everyone's suggestions. We actually had twice as many topics nominated than needed so we'll have a great assortment to choose from next year too. If we did not get a chance to discuss yours, feel free to bring it up in the comments. A huge thanks also goes out to everyone who helped provide pictures for the polls. You saved me so much time! Thanks to Rendy as well for creating the title page for the contest.   Finally, thanks as always to Andy, without whom there would be no SpoilerTV, the best TV website I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. It was the Best Show Contest that brought me here over half a decade ago, so if you have just joined us for the contest, I encourage you to make SpoilerTV your first stop for pre-episode information and post-episode discussion. There is no greater community to talk about TV with than here at SpoilerTV.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
