2022 Character Cup Winner

Scylla Ramshorn

Motherland: Fort Salem

53 polls later and we have a winner! Congratulations to Motherland: Fort Salem fans for voting Scylla Ramshorn to the top. In a blowout, Scylla gained votes steadily and pulled out ahead with 77% of the vote. With this, Scylla becomes the 11th winner of the Character Cup. Way to go, Scylla fans! To become the winner, Scylla defeated Leo Fitz, Kamala Khan, Gil Arroyo, Rebecca Pearson, and Olivia Benson. Congratulations to all Motherland: Fort Salem fans!

In second place is Olivia Benson, who came into the Cup ranked 15th and moves up 13 spots. At second place, this is the highest Olivia has ever gotten in the Cup, having represented Law & Order: SVU five times. With a second place win, Olivia is still eligible to compete next year. Will 2023 finally be her year? Congratulations to SVU fans for a well-played contest, too.

In a year of big blowouts, Rebecca Pearson reaches third place in her debut in the Cup with 83% of the third place poll. She defeated Spencer Reid, who comes in fourth. What an impressive run for both of them! Our breakout character this year was Dexter Morgan from Dexter, who jumped 39 ranks to land in the #9 spot. Over in the Best Opening Credits mini-contest, Game of Thrones reigned supreme with Arcane placing second.

As the winner, Scylla Ramshorn joins Jack from LOST, Dean and Castiel from Supernatural, Root and Shaw from Person of Interest, Alex Danvers from Supergirl, Lucifer Morningstar from Lucifer, Temo Lopez from Mi Marido Tiene Más Familia, Lexa from The 100, and Malcolm Bright from Prodigal Son in our Hall of Retired Winners. Congratulations to the Motherland: Fort Salem, Law & Order: SVU, This Is Us, Criminal Minds, and all other fandoms who supported their favorites.

Prediction Contest:

By earning 96 points, Luana Arturi is the winner of this year’s prediction contest.  Congratulations! You rock! You earn the all-important bragging rights this year. Luana previously won second place in the 2019 Character Cup prediction contest.  Noor (86 points), Elvis (86), and I (92), round out the top 4. Awesome job predicting all around in a year when former favorites faltered fast. Until next year, I officially call this the close of the Character Cup. Thanks everyone for another successful year!


The Character Cup does not happen without the support of so many people. First and foremost, thanks to Andy for running SpoilerTV and hosting this contest every summer. If you haven’t been to SpoilerTV before the Character Cup, I urge you to stick around and try it out. Not only are hundreds of shows covered but the people who make up the STV community are knowledgeable, thoughtful, passionate, respectful, and eager to discuss. You will not find better, balanced conversation about TV anywhere online. It is my privilege to be a part of the STV team.

Everyone knows that the TV Talk Topics are my favorite part of the Cup and you didn’t disappoint. I loved talking TV with you this year. I appreciate everyone who shared their thoughts, whether it was every time, just once, or somewhere in between. You are the reason why so many people are drawn to SpoilerTV. A special thanks, also, to everyone who nominated topics. I’m sorry if we didn’t get to yours, but we have a great mix of topics to start us out next year. Thanks, as well, to anyone who helped with pictures this year.

Finally, a huge thank you to everyone who participated in any capacity. There is no contest without you. I appreciate your nominating, voting, discussing, mini-contest ideas, TV Talk Topics, spreading the word through social media, and sharing your thoughts. Once again, I had a blast during this contest and I can’t wait to see you next year for the 2023 Character Cup. It's one of my favorite parts of summer and a joy to participate with you.

Note - Just a reminder, the Best Show Contest which is usually held right after the Character Cup will be postponed until December this year. Neither Bradley nor I have time right now, so thanks to everyone who participated in the SpoilerTV Awards, Favorite Episode Competition, and the Character Cup. It’s been a great summer hiatus competition season. Until December, may your favorite shows not be cancelled and your favorite characters have amazing storylines. Thanks for being a part of these contests.
