It was four years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete and I was filling out my bracket for the 2014 FIFA World Cup that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are at the next World Cup and it’s time for our fourth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!
How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of character skins in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Skin Bracket Battle.
We created a Bracket of 32 awesome character skins for characters that don’t have a second skin that we believe would bring a smile to your face, have great visuals, could make for an awesome event, or simply be a nice idea for a new Friends Point prize.

Now a recap of last weeks votes:
Boys: Apple Rod beat Sunday Todd 55% to 45%.
Girls: Skating Sophie barely upset Sun Dress Greta in the closest vote to date, by just 5 votes, 549 to 544, 50% to 50%.
Men: Hip Hop Chalmers beat Salesman Lovejoy 66% to 34%.
Women: JLo Agnes upset Wedding Suit Patty 62% to 38%.
Here’s what the Bracket looks like after week 4:
Now without further ado, our first set of Round 2 head-to-head matchups featuring the first semi-finals in all four conferences:
Stay Puft Uter (First appeared S27, E04)
Apple Rod (First appeared S08, E04)
Tale of the Tape: After easily handling Mexican Wendell, Stay Puft Uter should stay in the Bracket and take a bite out of Apple Rod.
Trinidad and Tobago Sherri & Terri (First appeared S09, E14)
Skating Sophie Krustofsky (First appeared S28, E18)
Tale of the Tape: Another ‘do you prefer summer or winter’? Personally I get enough snow, ice and skating each year that it’s rare seeing a sundress.
Hip Hop Chalmers (First appeared S16, E09)
Texan Matt Groening (First appeared S07, E10)
Tale of the Tape: After upsetting one of my favourites in Two Arm Herman, can Texan Matt pull off another upset.
Human Maude (First appeared S02, E06)
JLo Agnes (First appeared S13, E17)
Tale of the Tape: Maude from the block will be waiting for tonight for your vote to take out JLo Agnes.
Reminder, voting is open until 6pm EDT Sunday, August 5th.
