Congratulations to Walter Bishop for winning the final Fringie of the Week contest with a 38% victory for “There’s More Than One Of Everything”. This victory means that he draws parity with Olivia Dunham in the overall standings, as such they both SHARE the prestigious FRINGIE(S) OF THE SEASON AWARD for Season 1! Congrats to Walter and Olivia (and John Noble and Anna Torv) in being the fans choice for 2008/09.
Here’s the overall league table (bear in mind there was a draw in there):
- Olivia Dunham / Walter Bishop (7 wins each) – CHAMPIONS!!
- Peter Bishop (6 wins) 2ND PLACE
- The Observer/Meegar’s Mom/ The Child (1 win each) 3RD PLACE
It’s amazing how far Olivia has come in the eyes of fans. She was nowhere in this contest at the start of the year, but a succession of Cortexhiphan-enhanced performances seem to have closed the gap with Walter. Credit to Walt for sustaining his appeal. Peter was unlucky to miss out – at one point it looked as if he was going to take victory, but it just goes to show the fine lines we’re dealing with.
Thanks to everyone who voted, it was fun to see how opinions changed according to the episode — for the most part I agreed with the weekly outcomes. All things being well FB will do this again next season. Also, we’ll have our Season 1 Fringe Awards during the hiatus, so those of you who would have preferred a different outcome to this contest will have an alternate chance to vote for your favorites in the end of season event.
