Ogle Madness II: Championship Game


In last year’s Ogle Madness, we had the battle of the blonde in the pink bikini vs. the blonde eating the ice cream cone.  This year, it looks like we are going to have a very similar matchup, only replace the ice cream cone with a microphone.  Yes, the finalists in Ogle Madness II Championship game are Kristin Chenoweth and Carrie Underwood.

Before we get to the voting, let’s look how each contestant fared in their previous battles.


First round:  Jenny “Oklahoma” Reeder,  64% – 36%
Second Round: Mark Rodgers,  75% – 25%
Sweet Sixteen: Gary England, 68% – 32%
Elite 8: Jessica Schambach, 60% – 40%
Final 4: Sam Bradford, 51% – 49%


First round:  Jenni Carlson, 89% – 11%
Second Round: Amy McRee, 72% – 28%
Sweet Sixteen: Lauren Richardson, 83% – 18%
Elite 8: Kevin Durant, 68% – 32%
Final 4: Mick Cornett, 71% – 29%

No offense to Carrie Underwood – because making the Ogle Madness Championship Game is a fine accomplishment – but all signs point to her getting absolutely slaughtered in this game.  Chenoweth totally destroyed last year’s champ and runner-up, and even the popular mayor of Oklahoma City couldn’t get more than 30% of the vote against her.

Seriously, right behind the February tornadoes, March snow storms and April wild fires, Chenoweth’s dominance as a 9-seed has to be one of the top news stories in Oklahoma.  Something tells me she won’t be a 9-seed next year.  Hell, she’s been so dominant we might not even invite her back.

Anyway, you can vote for the Ogle Madness II Champion after the jump.  Be sure to check back on Friday for a special recap.

About Carrie Underwood

Conference: American Idol Alumni

Who she is: Checotah-born winner of Season 3 of American Idol; Country Music Superstar

Biggest Strength: Winning over-hyped talent shows.  She’s also moderately attractive.

Biggest Weakness: Making music that doesn’t make us want to yank out our ears.


About Kristin Chenoweth

Conference: Underrated Actors

Who she is: Olive Snook on Pushing Daisies, G’linda the “Good Witch” in the musical Wicked

Biggest Strength: For our lady readers, we’ll say her singing voice, great line delivery, and smile.  For our male readers, we’re going to go with her giant rack.

Biggest Weakness: She is not quite a midget, but it’s close.

  1. Thank you for returning to the pink bikini picture.

    Also, what does all of this say about the demographic that reads The Lost Ogle? Might they be a bunch of white males like myself?

  2. Two hot blondes indeed. The internet ratings for this matchup should be pretty good and it would give new meaning to Bill Raftery’s occasional “to the rack!” call if maybe he could color commentate the game.
    As it stands though, Chenoweth is UNC and poor Carrie seems to be turning the ball over every possession.

  3. Total dominance by Chenoweth again! She has treated everybody she’s gone up against like a bunch of yardbirds. That photo of her has to have helped. Impressive.

  4. I saw Chenoweth on GMA this morning promoting her new book. She imitated Dolly Parton in a song…and other ways. They played a clip from an old Broken Arrow high school play. I’m going out on a limb and betting this was the first national broadcast of a BA play.

  5. Me love a the Chenoweth but maybe the Champ for each year should enshrined and left out of the next year’s edition – just a thought..

    I am so glad I could be a part of this cinderella story. this very hot cinderella story.

  6. After much research, contemplation, and google image searching, I have come to the following conclusion:
    Ogle Madness is not an aberration. Rather, it is a microcosm of our society. Let’s face it. An amply endowed blonde enjoys certain intrinsic benefits, particularly in popularity contests.

    Note this admittedly rough measure of fame. Kristin’s google image hits = 79,900. Sam’s = 580,000. Carrie’s = 10,700,000.

    Yet, when put to a vote — and a provocative picture provided — the underdog prevails.

    I will be formulating a quantitative model to predict the probability distribution and confidence levels for this phenomenon. Then I intend to test that model by dutifully google image searching amply endowed blondes. It is a daunting, thankless task, but I humbly take it on in the name of science.

    See you guys in six months.

  7. *Waves hands* HELLOOOOO! I might be in the minority here, but I am a TLO-reading female! I can’t say I actually listen to Underwood’s music, but she is talented, as well as Chenoweth. They just happen to be very hot blondes, haha. I am always rooting for the underdog, especially an awesome underrated Broadway actress!

  8. SariWx shows why Chenoweth is dominating. She brings the entire package for TheLostOgle crowd. The guys favor her for the reason well documented. Women, including my wife who blew a gasket when Patrick didn’t include the bikini picture in the Final Four out of fear it would circumvent the guy vote, root for Chenoweth because she excels at musical theatre. It’s like when guys will submit to watching a chick flick because Jessica Alba walks around scantily clad during the dance scenes.

  9. No doubt we got the right winner this year. She’s a beautiful, talented classy woman.

    I wonder where the dork is today that got to kiss her in the highschool play.
