Previous results:
Elaine: Why did I buy it, because in the mirror, at Barney’s, I looked fabulous. This woman was just walking by said I looked like Demi Moore
in Indecent Proposal.

Jerry: How fast was she walking?

George: Duh-mee? I thought it was Demm-ee?

Jerry: No. I think it's Duh-mee.

George: Really? I never heard of a suh-mee tractor-trailer.

Either way you say it, Moore killed Foster, 26-5. Click here to view the updated full bracket.

Vanessa Angel

Comments: This is the last matchup of the first round, and it's safe to say that we've learned a couple things in the last few weeks. First, I screwed up and didn't do as much research as I should/could have, resulting in some undeserving contestants sneaking into the game. The choices are biased just a little bit too much specific to my experience (not all, but a few). Also, I like Spies Like Us way more than most people. It's the only thing of note that Angel was in during the 80s, and it wasn't all that bit a role to begin with. Memorable, though. I think her post-80s resume (the Weird Science TV show, Kingpin) might have influenced me more than I thought. So yes, I apologize for keeping out deserving candidates such as Kim Basinger, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Mary Stuart Masterson.

Tanya Roberts

Comments: Yes, before she was the annoying Midge on That 70s Show, Roberts was quite the bombshell during the 70s and 80s, even taking her turn as a Bond girl.

A special thanks to commenter and friend Nic Cage for supplying me with image choices for the ladies throughout the tournament. He did a bang-up job today, I must say.

Wow I had no idea Midge used to be so hot! I haven't seen any of these movies but it's easy to pick Tanya Roberts on pictures alone.

Nic Cage said...

Wow, I forgot how hot Tanya was. Never could stand her voice though, all nasally, like she had a cold all the time.

Vanessa is HOT, but only one movie in the 80s.

Gotta go with Tanya.

Judging from the pictures, I'll pick Tanya Roberts. Moreover, although she isn't the best Bond girl, I still pick her because she used to be a Bond girl.

Angel. Robert's voice is grading.

Pretty clear advantage to Roberts in the votes. I went with Tanya for the record.
