Much like the Maritime Region of the bracket, the Shield Region of the 2015 Hottest Canadian bracket has some heavy hitters. Like yesterday’s region, the Shield Region’s top four seeds all went to the last Elite Eight. Unlike the Maritime Region, three of those women went on to the Final Four. We didn’t plan it out that way when we did the brackets but these last two regions sure did turn out to have some fun storylines.
If yesterday’s launch of the Arctic Region’s first round was a bit light on big names, we completely overcorrect with the Maritime Region. Not only is defending champion Kristin Kreuk in this part of the bracket, each of this region’s top four seeds were in the 2012 Elite Eight. So if the Arctic Region is the Comeback Region, this one is the Region of Death.
As promised, it’s time to kick things off with the first day of the first round of The Lowdown’s second Hottest Canadian bracket showdown. It doesn’t sound quite as impressive when we put it that way. Anyway, over the next week, the polls will open region by region to determine who will make it to the Sweet Sixteen. The first bracket features only one woman who made to the Sweet Sixteen in the first tournament so I guess you could call this the comeback region of the bracket.
Sometimes, an idea is so good and so unique that we have to do it again… after a three-year hiatus. For the first time since the initial event, it’s time for the second ever Hottest Canadian Bracket Challenge. This is the first, and therefore best, public poll/bracket to determine who is the hottest Canadian woman in the world.
After the jump, we have the bracket and the list of the first round match-ups.
Three years ago, we tried a little experiment on the blog. We got into the swing of March Madness with our first bracketology tournament, the Hottest Canadian bracket. At the time, it was the first bracket dedicated to determining the people’s choice for the hottest Canadian woman in the world. After a few weeks of competition, Kristin Kreuk was named the first Hottest Canadian.
After a short hiatus, the Hottest Canadian showdown is coming back in 2015! There’s just one thing missing: the nominees. We have a draft list ready and ranked but we’re not going to get everyone that should be on the list on there and in the right spot.
Hit the jump for a nomination form and stay tuned for the first round in March.
We’re down to the final of our four regions in our first Hottest Canadian showdown. When creating the bracket, we ranked all women from 1 to 32. By coincidence, then, the Maritime Region has become the underdog bracket. I’m not sure if any of these eight women today would come to mind when picking a #1 overall seed but they all could walk away with the crown. Continue reading
The Prairies Region is third up in our 2012 Hottest Canadian bracket showdown. After two days, we’re geared up for a couple of surprising upsets and who knows which of the higher seeds might fall next. Anyway, this is the actress bracket because all eight women in today’s four new match-ups all ply their trade as actresses. Continue reading
