Vote for your favorite Lost character

by Erin Martell, posted Mar 13th 2008 7:28PM

Michael EmersonMost Lost fans have a favorite character, or even a few favorites. Now all of the Locke fans, Kate admirers, and Ben disciples can settle their differences--March Madness-style. Since March 7th, the Washington Post has been hosting Lost Madness, a bracket-like poll to determine the best all-time Lost character.

Instead of regions, the tournament sorts everyone by character type: 815ers, Others/DHARMA, rescuers and dead survivors, and other crucial players (the Smoke Monster, Danielle, etc.). The first two rounds are already finished, but you still have time to vote in the Sweet Sixteen round. New winners are revealed every couple of days and the winner will be announced on March 25th.

Among the most noteworthy results--Sun beat Jin in a close vote, Rose beat Bernard, and Vincent the dog beat baby Aaron by a landslide. I'm more surprised by who is missing from the Sweet Sixteen. Sayid beat Locke in the second round, and Sawyer beat Hurley in Round One. I can't believe that Hurley didn't at least make it to Round Two.

At the moment, there are some interesting matchups: Jack vs. Sayid, Kate vs. Sawyer, and the Smoke Monster vs. Desmond. This bracket should result in some even tougher matchups in a few days. For my money, the front runners are Ben, Sayid, and Desmond, with Ben Linus winning it all. How can anyone else win? Ben probably has an inside man at the Washington Post right now.

The current round of voting continues until March 17th, with subsequent rounds beginning on the 19th and the 21st.

This poll has been compromised so the results are just basically for fun, and no real indicator of people's favourites. Yesterday after Sawyer was leading Kate with 67%, over a thousand votes came in that set Kate a little a head of Sawyer in the space of a few minutes. Online polls are never a clear measure of true voting.

Ben will win this. How can anyone doubt that? Look at the fans. He's not my favorite, but he's where my money is.

Final four will be Ben, Sayid (I'd vote Sawyer, but Sayid will take it), Desmond and either Charlie or Eko. Hard to say, but c'mon, there's no strong candidate in that bracket. Kate, Jack, Sawyer, Hurley (who was robbed) and Jin would all sweep it.

--spoiler alert--

Michael is on the bracket twice! Once as Michael, once as Kevin Johnson. Why would they even put up someone we've never been told about on the show (until last night).

it will be sayid vs desmond, or sayid vs. ben.
and since sayid was there from the beginning, and the matchup votes are in the 9000 level, i predict sayid to win this thing.

As much as I like Loc He has not been that great this season and last. So I have to go with Desmond who has been my favorite character right after He showed up. I also liked Eco a lot but He died so Desmond all the way.

it's odd that the poll has so much detail, yet calls Sawyer "John".

Gotta be a typo because in the description of him, it properly refers to him by his real name of "James Ford".
