Ahh come on! Aside from her "flash" scene in Fast Times, Phoebe is blah.

Betsy is smoking hot! Plus, you can't deny the high quality films Cheerleader Camp and Private School!

Or effing not. Wow - I thought this might be close, giving the Russell revelations last time.

Cage - Russell is indeed hot, but Cates is far from "blah" no matter how you slice it. I ended up voting Cates as well, though perhaps if I'd seen Private School, my vote would be switched...

Cates is grossly overrated, the only, ONLY reason she's at all popular is for one scene in one film.

I'm starting to lose hope in this competition. Luckily LeBrock is still around and if she loses to Cates I'm done. Weird Science trumps one scene from Ridgemont High and compared to Russell's scenes (plural) in Private School this match-up should have been a slaughter the other way around.

Im calling it right now. The winner of this tournament is coming out of the Cates/LeBrock matchup.

Cates all the way! Sure she gets all the praise for that brief moment in Fast Times, but it is the movie Paradise (i.e. the poor man's Blue Lagoon) that did it for me.

You all should be ashamed of yourselves. I have just lost faith in humanity.
