Period Drama Hero Tournament!

We've come to know them... We've come to root for them... We hope they end up with the girl of their dreams (or that the girl will accept them)... Or maybe not, but they are still honorable and we love them anyways!

This is "The Period Drama Hero Tournament"! Where our favorite heroes and other male main characters from various period dramas compete for the coveted gold metal and title of "Favorite Hero".

Due to high demand and the success of the "Period Drama Heroine Tournament", the Hero tournament is underway!

How it Works: Readers of Elegance of Fashion will vote in polls. The polls will last one week, and once they're over, the winners from each poll will go onto the next round. The first round starts out with 50 heroes with 25 polls to vote in: each poll will have two heroes to pick from. Second round - 25 heroes and 8 polls (the hero with the most votes in Round 1 will have immunity in Round 2: if there are two heroes tied for that spot, they will be randomly selected). After the voting for Round 2 closes, there will be a three day poll to decide a wild card contestant from the already eliminated contestants. Third - 10 heroes (including the wild card) and 5 polls; each poll will have two heroes in it. Fourth Round - one poll with the top four of the five contestants will move on. Fifth - 2 polls and 4 heroes. Lastly, the final round will decide who wins "The Period Drama Hero Tournament"!

  1. AAAAHHHHHHH!!!! Too exciting!!! Hooray! Will you have a long button for sidebars again? I've put up one of these buttons on PaH. :)

  2. I still have to make the long banners. Hopefully soon I'll have them up.

  3. Yay! I can't wait for this tournament to begin! I've already put up a banner on my blog, the Austen heroes one of course! ;)

  5. I'm excited all over again for the Hero Tournament! The gentlemen who'll be qualifying are keeping me in suspense! And of course, I had to set up one of those blog buttons on my blog.

  6. YAY! I am so excited!! =D I'm going to guess either Mr Darcy, Mr Knightly, or Mr Thornton will win. =)

  7. Thank you so much for this tournament Elegance of Fashion. I am so excited, I love all the blog buttons. Mr Thornton's picture in particular in the Gaskell button melts my heart :)
