Day 115 - Elite Eight

Day 115.

You guys came out in droves to vote on our little Julie & Julia-themed March Madness/Best Supporting Character Bracket. And I have to admit, I am quite impressed. I always knew my readers were good--I was just kind of worried that only like 3 people would vote. And we got at least double that! (actually, way more than that even) The super exciting results follow. Winners are in bold.

Game 1: Simone Beck (1) vs. Judith Jones (8) - Simone Beck wins in a landslide. No surprises here. Just unfortunate that the tournament will no longer have Judith Jones' hilarious foodgasm face.

Simone Beck

Game 2: Madame Brassart (4) vs. Chef Max Bugnard (5) - OF COURSE Colonel Sanders wins this game. Was it even a contest? No one can defeat the Colonel's fearsome mustache. Plus, Madame Brassart is a piece of shit.

Chef Max "Colonel Sanders" Bugnard

Game 3: Dorothy McWilliams a.k.a. Julia's Sister (3) vs. Avis DeVoto (8) - Sue Sylvester doesn't know the meaning of the word "lose."

Dorothy McWilliams

Game 4: Louisette Bertholle (2) vs. Ivan Cousins (7) - Aaaaannnd our first upset, ladies and gentlemen. Louisette Bert-ass-holle chokes away another one right when it counts. She really is the ultimate flake. This one did come down to the wire though (only 1 vote!). Also, how did you guys vote for Ivan Cousins? Him? Really?

Ivan Cousins

Game 5: Sarah a.k.a. Julie's Best Friend (1) vs. Julie's Cat (8) - UPSETS UPSETS UPSETS!!! Sarah, who's pretty much the closest thing to a main character on the Julie portion of the bracket, loses by a considerable margin to a useless feline. I have a sneaking suspicion that a ton of ASPCA members must have rallied to pull off an upset of this magnitude. And who said a Julie & Julia supporting character tournament wouldn't be exciting? (oh yeah, that was me)

CAT

Game 6: Regina/Cassie (4) vs. Annabelle (5) - Two-headed bitches are better than one-headed bitches.

Regina/Cassie

Game 7: Julie's Mom (3) vs. Julie's Boss (6) - No love for Julie's Boss. He couldn't even beat a disembodied voice.

Julie's Mom

Game 8: Amanda Hesser (7) vs. Ernestine (2) - Another almost huge upset. This one was close, folks. Amanda Hesser had a late-game rally and had a commanding lead early in the fourth quarter. Ernie tied things up and finally put her shit together in OT, where she eeked out a buzzer beater over our favorite reporter from The New York Fucking Times. This tournament is getting exciting, folks.
