1. I picked 20 female and 20 male celebrities I find attractive.
2. Everyday (or so) I'll make a poll and you'll have to vote for the two women and two men you find the least attractive (and later on just one of each). The four celebrities with the most votes each round will be eliminated.
3. With each new poll I'll post the results with pretty pictures of the people who were eliminated.
4. Feel free to campaign for your favourites in the comments, but please no bashing.
The results of last year's competition can be viewed here. I opted to retire last year's winners, Kate Winslet and Robert Downey Jr., this time around. I figured it would make things more interesting, especially on the ladies' side since Queen Kate has stomped all over the competition in every poll I've seen on my friends list. She can rest on her laurels in the Hall of Fame assured of her position as Queen of the Internet. I had a much more difficult time narrowing the ladies' list than I did for the list of the gents; I guess I just have more girlcrushes.
I added a "no bashing" rule this year. It wasn't a huge problem last year, but I was getting a few stray comments here and there along the lines of "ugh, why is so and so still here" or "I can't believe so and so got eliminated when there are so many fugly people left". Shut it down. I picked these people because I like them, so vote away based on your own preferences and side-eye my questionable taste in celebrities all you want, but keep your negative comments to yourself s'il vous plait. Feel free, of course, to root for your favourites, cheer for their victories, and lament their departures in the comments as long as it is framed in an "I LOVE THIS PERSON" context.
