The idea of judging a politician based on their looks just feels icky. I have no desire participate in such a competition, or indeed any discussion of whether a politician is hot or not.

I like AOC and think she is doing very important work. Voting for her in something so trivial and superficial seems disrespectful.
I really don't think this is true. Like I don't think pop stars whose target audience is women under 25 care, or even think about, how they look in the eyes of a bunch of 35+ year old dudes. I bet they think this is just as creepy as any politician would. I also think they'd take "merely meant to provide us with entertainment" as a huge insult.

I was a big Kendrick supporter, but I for one didnít do any trolling. Sheís smart and funny and would be a blast to be around.

Minka Kelly, and Alison Brie both won when they were debatably not even the hottest characters on their show. Emmanuelle Chriqui was definitely not the hottest woman to appear on Entourage. But OOT had huge crushes on Lyla Garrity, Annie Edison and, I guess, Sloan.
Wait, what?

Right, I didn't mean that her voters were actually trolling. I meant that her voters were supporting her for additional reasons beyond solely looks, and I think I remember that they might have been accused of trolling due to that, even though that is a valid reason to vote for someone.

You've missed my point.

There are a bunch of angry people trying to stop her. They are trying to stop her because they can't believe their 'hot' girl contest is being hijacked by someone who isn't conventionally hot. It just has nothing to do with politics.

Iím with you. What I mildly object to this year is the express request for posters in other forums to come here and support a candidate for overtly political reasons. Itís within the rules, so my complaint about jman was simply that it is a mild breach of etiquette and nothing more.

ACO is definitely attractive, although she is no Doutzen Kroes. And I for one donít think ACOís entry is a hijack.

I actually agree with this, I'd have here in the top 50% of overall miss oot entries for sure.

She just doesn't meet the usual criteria for going the distance in this sort of comp

You are 100% wrong in thinking this is politically motivated.

Oh yeah - a statistical analysis could be done based on how you politard voters voted in other rounds to prove otherwise.
