2015 Hottest Canadian: Shield & Prairies Regions – Sweet Sixteen

Tuesday night brings us the back half of the 2015 Hottest Canadian bracket’s Sweet Sixteen. Much like the Arctic and Maritime Regions, upsets were few and far between in the Shield and Prairies region. The 2012 runner-up, Evangeline Lilly, was the third #3 seed to fall victim to the #3 curse. Coincidentally, three #3 seeds fell in the first round of 2012’s bracket too. The Prairies Region also had our biggest upset with #2 seed Elisha Cuthbert falling to #7 Lindy Booth. We could see more upsets this round too.

Voting runs through Thursday night. On Friday, we kick-off the Elite Eight with the finals of each region.

It’s the first day of the second round of the 2015 Hottest Canadian showdown. The original field of 32 has been cut in half to 16.

Voting runs through Thursday night. On Friday, we kick-off the Elite Eight with the finals of each region.
