Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Real Life Celebrity, Week 9

It was six years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are in the oddest of NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs of all times due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and it’s time for our sixth 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 have been A LOT of incredible guest stars appearing as themselves in the rich history of The Simpsons universe. A rare few of these (like Stephen Hawking and Weird Al) have made their way into our games. However, hundred are still not in our little game. There is so much in fact, that it was hard just to narrow it down to 64 entries to start with. I thought of making the Bracket Battle start with 128 entries, but we’d be battling well into fall. With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Real Life Celebrity Bracket Battle.

For rules and regulations, check out the Week 1 post here.

 

First, for the results from last week, from over 3,600 votes cast (over 25,300 votes to date):

In the first quarter final, Singers (Female) champion Dolly Parton (52%) barely beat Actors (Female) champion Lucy Lawless (42%) by under 20 votes.

In the second quarter final, Authors/Journalists champion Stan Lee (69%) beat Scientists/Activists/Entrepreneurs/Politicians champion Buzz Aldrin (31%).

In the third quarter final, Actors (Male) champion Leonard Nimoy (75%) beat Singers (Male) champion Barry White (25%).

In the fourth quarter final, Comedians champion Betty White (72%) beat Athletes champion Tony Hawk (28%).

  5. No-one will be surprised that I’m disappointed that one of the very few people who has actually walked anywhere other than on the Earth lost, will they 🙂

    This round was the easiest so far, but assuming Stan and Leonard win, the final will be very hard to choose!
