Matthew Rorie to win, you guys.

#5 Posted by Little_Socrates (5834 posts) -

Whitta and Rorie, but this is basically the competition finals.

#6 Posted by BombcastGoldthwait (256 posts) -

Vignocchi & Rorie!

#7 Posted by joshthebear (2704 posts) -

Johnny V & Rorie.

#8 Posted by Cloudenvy (5874 posts) -

Rorie and Whitta is the only right answer!

#9 Posted by Tylea002 (2382 posts) -

Whitta's beating Johnny V? Are you guys crazy? Whitta is a damned hero, but Johnny V is far more important to the bomb.

#10 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6805 posts) -

I'm sorry Whitta, but Johnny V and Rorie get my votes.

Extremely surprised that Johnny is losing.

#11 Posted by Olqavtoras (263 posts) -

This round is brutal! Vignocchi vs Whitta?! Sorry Gary, gotta go with Johnny & Rorie.

#12 Posted by Maystack (930 posts) -

Johnny V's losing? I thought he would be a community favourite.

#13 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5150 posts) -

Johnny V and PUPPIES!

#14 Posted by Sauson (568 posts) -

How is Gary beating Johnny V!?

Always gonna vote for Rorie. And I like Gary a bit more than Johnny, so pretty easy.

#18 Posted by Phatmac (5923 posts) -

Sorry Gary, but Johnny V wins it for me.

#19 Posted by sephirm87 (243 posts) -

I'm going for Rorie all the way to the end. Rorie, Gallup, Whitta, and Kessler are my final 4. I want Will Smith to win so it will be him and Norm against each other, then the winner goes against Gary after that.

I cannot vote, as Sess and Rorie are not an option.

#22 Edited by CptBedlam (4487 posts) -

Gary beats everyone.

I love all of them though!

#23 Posted by rjayb89 (7806 posts) -

If you vote for Gary Whitta, you hate tacos.

#24 Posted by X19 (2370 posts) -

Gary Whitta to win :D

#25 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3053 posts) -

Rorie V!

#26 Edited by FesteringNeon (2238 posts) -

Rorie to win, because he's Rorie.

I do enjoy Johnny V on live streams, and Sesslers rants though.

EDIT: I just realized I voted for Whitta and Rorie though, which makes my appreciation for Whitta count where it need be, but honestly don't want to see any of these fellas move on to the next round.

#27 Posted by jjnen (680 posts) -

These are getting harder day by day...

#28 Posted by FLStyle (5837 posts) -

Rorie and Whitta! Because puppies like to shoot that guy!

#29 Posted by AndrewB (7782 posts) -

What the... Whitta and Sessler! You guys are going it wrong!

I love Rorie, but Sessler!

This was the first poll that was genuinely hard for me. All 4 of these guys are pretty interesting, likable dudes.

#31 Posted by JohnDudebro (955 posts) -

People. PEOPLE. Has Gary Whitta ever told stories about trying to have Tron threesomes? Or of sending basketball players PSP memory cards with Mr. Hands on it? Or of how much Taco Bell he purchased the previous night? Stop being jerks, and VOTE VIGNOCCHI.

#32 Posted by Kedi2 (268 posts) -

Argh, I love all of them. I went with Whitta and Rorie, but it was a hard choice.

Johnny and Adam are awesome, but I can't go against Gary Whitta or Matt Rorie.

#35 Posted by Bribo (667 posts) -

Man, that was a tough chioce. Sess was great on the last Bombcast, and we would all be lost without Whitta's gaming advice. But Rorie and Johnny V inch it.

I don't think I can deal with this anymore. I'm going to approach this like I would an election - by not voting, then complaining about the result.

#36 Posted by da5id (30 posts) -

Wish I could vote an all JV ticket.

He masturbates at ghosts people! Ghosts!

#37 Posted by SamFo (1642 posts) -

This shit is a doozy

#38 Posted by Dethfish (3743 posts) -

This stuff just got a lot harder. This round and the next few are going to be brutal.

#39 Posted by Redbullet685 (6239 posts) -

Sessler and Whitta.

#40 Posted by Clonedzero (4206 posts) -

gotta go with rorie!

#41 Posted by DrJota (722 posts) -

Group of Death.

And puppies apparently...

#42 Posted by Monkeyman04 (1580 posts) -

Rorie's our man, if he can't do it no one can. GO RORIE!

#43 Posted by NegativeCero (3099 posts) -

Rorie and Johnny V take it for me.

#44 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12969 posts) -

Having listened to Behind the Screened Door up to the downfall of Whiskey Media, I don't think that I can vote for Rorie in good conscience. Guy is a great writer and did some great video features, but his willingness to talk shit or ignore anything that didn't fall within his weirdly specific tastes was prevalent and irked me the entire time. Adam Sessler did that one video about Killzone 2, so he's good in my book.

#45 Posted by Strife777 (1794 posts) -

Rorie, obviously!

Whitta vs Vignocchi is probably the hardest choice so far.

#46 Posted by Pkshields (826 posts) -

Sorry Whitta, but this is for the Golden Duder. Johnny V takes it hands down.

#47 Posted by mfpantst (2651 posts) -

This is a really tight set

#48 Posted by theveej (917 posts) -

Whitta is the man, but as far as GB goes I have to vote for JV. He is an integral part of GB lore...... BAD BRACKETS YO, this should have been final/semifinal match

#49 Posted by RedRocketWestie (381 posts) -

Man, these are only going to get harder and harder.

#50 Posted by mosespippy (4746 posts) -

How the hell are you guys letting Johnny V take it from Whitta? Whitta was a huge part of Whiskey. Shoot that guy!
