In last year's Ogle Madness, we had the battle of the blonde in the pink bikini vs. the blonde eating the ice cream cone. This year, it looks like we are going to have a very similar matchup, only replace the ice cream cone with a microphone. Yes, the finalists in Ogle Madness II Championship game are Kristin Chenoweth and Carrie Underwood.
Before we get to the voting, let's look how each contestant fared in their previous battles.
First round: Jenny "Oklahoma" Reeder, 64% - 36% Second Round: Mark Rodgers, 75% - 25% Sweet Sixteen: Gary England, 68% - 32% Elite 8: Jessica Schambach, 60% - 40% Final 4: Sam Bradford, 51% - 49%
First round: Jenni Carlson, 89% - 11% Second Round: Amy McRee, 72% - 28% Sweet Sixteen: Lauren Richardson, 83% - 18% Elite 8: Kevin Durant, 68% - 32% Final 4: Mick Cornett, 71% - 29%
No offense to Carrie Underwood - because making the Ogle Madness Championship Game is a fine accomplishment - but all signs point to her getting absolutely slaughtered in this game. Chenoweth totally destroyed last year's champ and runner-up, and even the popular mayor of Oklahoma City couldn't get more than 30% of the vote against her.
Seriously, right behind the February tornadoes, March snow storms and April wild fires, Chenoweth's dominance as a 9-seed has to be one of the top news stories in Oklahoma. Something tells me she won't be a 9-seed next year. Hell, she's been so dominant we might not even invite her back.
Anyway, you can vote for the Ogle Madness II Champion after the jump. Be sure to check back on Friday for a special recap.
