Plus that approachable-seeming, girl-next-door (you wish) type persona.

Unless you're one of those weirdos who've been touting screwed-up conspiracy theories about her on the internet. She doesn't like those.

Who are the 52 disqualifications?

The list of 21 disqualifications you posted in Group A has mistakes in it.

8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown is absolutely hilarious and it would never work here in the USA. Thankfully there are dozens of full episodes on Youtube.

And there's this clip.

I was referring to the ham-fisted rule changes you implemented without any discussion, as well as doing it during a contest, which is about as bad as it gets.

Oh that?

Few teething problems - underestimated the number of people who hadn't been involved up to that point but would want to get involved later, but honestly now it's OOT deciding and not 2p2 as a whole I think I've done the right thing.

AOC is winning this round and will probably stay ahead till the end (few people seem to vote in these after the first 2 days) because OOT wants her, to not because some tards thought it was a good way to annoy us.

Well, the whole thing is an in-joke that you couldn't work on American TV. Countdown is an afternoon gameshow which has been running on Channel 4 since the channel's inception in 1982. It became a bit of a cult with students. The original host was the late Richard Whiteley and the original numbers-lady was Carol Vorderman, who handed over to Rachel ten years ago.

8 Out Of 10 Cats (title taken from a Whiskas catfood commercial which I think actually said, 'Eight out of ten owners say their cats prefer it') is a C4 current-affairs panel show with comedians. The questions often related to opinion polls, hence the title. Some years ago they did a charity edition in which the 8 Out Of 10 Cats panellists attempted to play Countdown, with some quite bizarre elements added, and it was so popular they've just kept doing it.

You tell me whether if AOC wins that she will win without a majority of voters who spend the majority of their time posting in politics and whether that accurately reflects the will of OOT or the will of politics?

If they don't have 20 posts in 2018 up to nominations and haven't been seriously involved in Ms. OOT this year then I'm fine with that.
Me apparently.

Not saying that at all. I'm talking about the result. Does the result reflect the will of OOT or politics if it carries on the way it is - sure you may get enough votes from those that mainly post in OOT but have biases towards AOC to give the appearance of it being legitimate but at the moment the contest may as well be renamed Miss Politics and the whole thing should be moved there tbh.
