Tournament: Round 5

Round Five is upon us! This round will decide who will compete in the Final Round. Here are the matches!

Poll 1

George Knightley (Emma)
Fitzwilliam Darcy (Pride and Prejudice)

Poll 2

John Thornton (North and South)
Captain Frederick Wentworth (Persuasion)

There are the matches! Go and vote! You have one week!


  1. Oh dear! Mr. Knightley is up against Mr. Darcy! All of these heroes are such worthy men who deserve the title of "favorite hero" so this makes it extra hard to vote this round! I'm rooting for Mr. Knightley and Captain Wentworth because they are my favorites (next to Henry Tilney). I voted for Mr. Knightley because although I do like Mr. Darcy by the end of P&P I have a hard time liking him at the beginning, unlike Mr. Knightley who is a kind and friendly gentleman throughout the whole of Emma. But it's so hard to choose!

  2. NO! NO! NO!!!! I just knew that would happen! This is awful....Darcy against Knightley?!?!?! That wasn't supposed to happen until the last round! *sighs* Ohhhh dear. I voted on #2 poll for Mr Thornton which wasn't hard for me... but... but....probably my two favorite heroes against each other!?! I'll simply have to wait to vote, that's what.

  3. Darcy (much as it hurts to go against Knightley) and Wentworth. I'll look forward to final results when I'm home!

  4. As Melody said, Darcy against Knightley wasn't supposed to happen until the last round. Why on earth did you do that?
    Anyways, I'll vote for Darcy and Wentworth and wish I voted for Knightley. It's easy to go against Thornton because I haven't read North and South

  5. Maria Elisabeth,
    I was shocked when it came to that: all the matches are done randomly. I couldn't believe it! I thought that a lot of people aren't going to like this...

  6. As difficult as it was to choose, my votes went to Mr. Knightley and Mr. Thornton.

  7. Mr. Darcy will always be my favorite, but I have enjoyed the others as leading men also.

    I have to say that I think Persuasion is very underated, in comparison to other Jane Austen novels & movies. It was a lovely movie with brilliant actors.

  8. Hi Miss Elizabeth,
    I just put your blog button on my new blog and linked to you on my 'Lovely Blogs' page.

    P.S. Before I got my blog I commented as Maria Elisabeth, now I'll be commenting as Miss Georgiana

    Okay. I finally did it. I voted for Mr. Darcy.

    Knightley's one vote ahead right now! I have a feeling Mr. Knightley's top fans have already voted, and the slightly undecided people (like me) will come in and end up voting for Darcy at the end. But we'll see.

    Miss Bennet,
    I knew you probably did it's just too bad you couldn't have...cheated a little. ;-)
