Ultimate Swoon-Off Semi-Finals (Friday Face Off)


Last week, we pitted 8 of Austen's most beloved, most swoon-worthy heroes against each other in a no holds barred battle royale.  There were 28 voters total, and here are the standings after round one:

Brackets 1 & 2
Tilney 19 | Ferrars 9
Darcy 23 | Bertram 5
Verdict: Tilney will be facing Darcy

Brackets 3 & 4
 Brandon 13 | Knightley 15 
Wentworth 26 | Bingley 2
Verdict: Knighley will be facing Wentworth

I find it somewhat disheartening that Edmund Bertram got more votes than Charles Bingley.  Just saying.  Though to be fair, Bingley was up against Wentworth, so...

Anyway, on to Round 2!  You've gotten your favorite men through Round 1; don't let them falter now!  Weight in with your pick for each pairing.  Your votes will decide who makes it into the finals.

Henry Tilney vs. Fitzwilliam Darcy


George Knightley vs. Frederick Wentworth


It's up to you now.  Which two heartthrobs will battle it out in the finals?  There are clear front-runners already (surprise, surprise), so if you want an upset, you'd better rally some like-minded Janeites...

  1. Oh, this is so mean. They are all great. I guess I'll vote
    Tilney and Knightley, but I wish we could keep Captain Wentworth too.

  2. ooh, I agree with Masha, this is mean! I love you, Henry, but Darcy is just...Darcy. So sorry.
    Wentworth, definitely Wentworth. I don't even know who I will vote for if Darcy and Wentworth come up against each other! They are both so wonderful!

  4. Oh man, Oh man!! Rough choices.

    OK, I'll give a vote to Tilney out of sympathy. Don't want the bloke to feel like Bingley must right now. And in truth I do adore Henry Tilney so it isn't too hard to shift my attention. For a while, that is.

    Wentworth wins over Knightley, no contest for me.

  6. Arghhh still so hard to choose.

    Well ok Darcy is easy.

    But the 2nd is harder. I guess I'd go with Henry Tilney because he's so honorable and cute and not afraid to be frank with the heroine. I do like Wentworth but he's too...quiet for me.

    So Darcy and Tilney =)

  7. Darcy vs Wentworth will be my match. I have absolutely no idea who will win the final battle when it comes.

  8. Poor Tilney doesn't stand a chance. Darcy all the way =)

    Hmmm, this one is harder. But that letter Wentworth writes Anne at the end of the novel -- be still my heart! I'm gonna have to go with Wentworth.

  11. Alright, I'll toss my votes in and then voting is closed on this round. You can vote for the winner of the whole shebang in the finals.


    Though I do love me some Tilney, it's Darcy and Wentworth for me.
