After a long month of fierce competition and sleepless nights, the winner of Zap2it‘s Social Media Showdown has been decided. In the end, it came down to a brawl between “The Walking Dead’s” Norman Reedus and “Supernatural’s” Misha Collins, and Collins was named the victor. In this round alone, more than 1.7 million votes were cast, and there was a 20 percent difference between the two men by the end.
So huge congratulations to Collins for his well-deserved victory. And congratulations to Reedus, who made an epic showing throughout this entire race. Also a special thank you to all the other contenders in this social media showdown: To Stephen Amell, who became his competition; to Josh Malina and Yvette Nicole Brown, who used hilarious tactics against one another; to
Trollando Orlando Jones, who was the only person to run a propaganda ad; and to everyone in between.
And of course, we would be remiss without giving a huge thank you to the fans who participated, and who made this the high-stakes competition that it ended up being. We respect and admire your tireless endurance, and it’s thanks to you in #ReedusArmy and the Mishamigos and every other fandom out there that we get to hold such fun events every year.
So pour out a glass to the ones we’ve lost, raise one to our Social Media King, and get a good amount of well-deserved rest. We’ll see you all back here next year.
