Cam outlasted 63 other Degrassi characters to become this year’s champion. Because of the timing of his death and March Madness, it’s not even remotely shocking that he won. We could do this same tournament next year, and I guarantee the results would be different.
Thank you to everyone who voted. I’m not sure what kind of tournament I’ll do next year (characters, ships, etc), but that’s a long ways away. Here’s the final bracket:
BRACKET POOL STANDINGS
You received 10 points for each correct choice this round.
An overwhelming majority of people who entered chose Cam to win it all. Below are the final standings for the top 4 scorers:
Kary – 90 pts
Shelby – 117
Emma – 99
Jacquelyn – 98
Madeleine – 95
The madness is FINALLY over! No more Emma, huzzah!
Don’t hate me for this folks, but do you all honestly think that Cam would have made it to the finals if he was still alive?
Who knows? He was already extremely popular long before his death.
I could have sworn that Elijah would be the end o_O
Kinda, yeah. Spinner was Cam’s first worthy opponent- that was hard. But, I think Cam had a strong fanbase and probably would’ve won against Spinner anyway. I couldn’t see Cam beating Spinner and then losing to JT.
Cam wasn’t here for long, so the writers didn’t have a chance to screw up his character or storyline. Cam’s character was consistent, and consistently strong. His suicide may have made the trail to victory easier, but I think he had a damn good chance anyway.
I think it’s tough to compare the newer characters with the older ones. Season 10 was a huge turning point and the show is just different now in so many ways. Characters leave us now faster than they used to, so it’s hard to get over the bonds we formed with the original characters… but were the originals really better, or is nostalgia playing with our judgment? I think Paige v Dallas is a good example of that- I think Dallas is a better character, but Paige won because she’s a “classic.” It’s probably the same reason Emma got so far.
everyone will probably hate on me, but idc. so answering your question, no i don’t think he would have won if he wasn’t dead. i mean, he was an amazing character, but in all honesty i didnt really appreciate him until i knew he was about to die.
No I don’t think Cam or JT, as much as they were loved, would have gone as far as they did if tragedy hadn’t happened to them. I was pulling for a Fiona vs. Bianca final but I guess I was in the minority. :(
I also wanted to see this duel..=(
J.T. probably would have beat Cam if he didn’t commit suicide but I think he would still be somewhere in the top 4.
If Cam were still alive, he would have made it through most rounds… but he wouldn’t be in the finals.
Gah!! Second place! Alas. Congrats, Shelby!
Sean was always my favorite they could never make a character quite like him
A lot of people who watched and loved the earlier seasons don’t really watch the show anymore. And a lot of the “newcomers” don’t seem to appreciate the older episodes much. So…I’m not sure if it was quite fair to compare the new characters with the old one. I mean…Cam winning is a little strange IMO (and, yes, I understand the importance of his suicide story lines but still…). Looking at these results, it seems like it was mostly newcomers voting I think there should have been a season 1-7 bracket and then a season 8-12 bracket.
Maybe I’m just bitter that a character that only appeared for half a season won…
