If the next GBOW is who I think she'll be then I'd expect her to make the runoff. But then ya never know. Who squeaked through to take the last spot last year?
Year one Jessica Biel and year two Claudia Black were the final seeds, both with 69%. For year one, Diane Lane and Dina Meyer both had slightly higher scores than Biel, but I had my 100-vote minimum rule in place (plus since it was only half a season, the playoffs started at the Elite Eight). Last year the top 16 were all well over 100 votes each.
For this year, I'll keep the 100-vote minimum rule, but anyone with less than 100 votes needs a 75% minimum approval rating to advance -- so Ryder, Moynahan and Vaugier are all in... unless, of course, 75% is simply not good enough to make the final cut when everything's said and done.
I fully expect two future GBOWs to get extremely high approval ratings, and there are a couple wild cards with the potential to surprise me like what happened with Zooey Deschanel. There will also be a GBOW that might make some (older) voters feel like pedophiles, but Hayden Panettiere passed with flying colors last year, so who knows?
The week X-Files come sout the Genre Babe better damn-well be Gillian Anderson. And, frankly, I think she'll be another landslide.
Well someone else on this board expects to see Amanda Peet. But I already made my decision months ago... David Duchovny as his Twin Peaks character, Denise.
