80's Crush Tournament - Championship Match-Up

In what was the closest margin of any of these match-ups, Lynda Carter has triumphed over Elisabeth Shue by 2 votes. Now on to the Championship Round.

In this corner, wearing the blue shorts with white stars, we have:

Lynda Carter

And in this corner, sporting the leopard-skin one-piece bathing suit, we have:

Morgan Fairchild

Both of these lovely ladies are roughly of the same vintage, have baby blue eyes, hail from the Southwestern U.S and each found fame on television as opposed to the movies. This is as tough a match-up as you get. It's the blonde v. the brunette.

Let's get ready to...RUMBLE! Voting continues through noon on Friday.

The winner of the "Friends" Division match-up is Lea Thompson with 56.0% of the vote. In the Semi-Final round, Lea will go up against Jaclyn Smith.

80's Crush Tournament Continues

The winner of the "Melrose Place" Division is Courtney Thorne-Smith with 63.6% of the vote. Courtney will now advance to the Semi-Final round against Morgan Fairchild.

In the meantime, the new poll is up for the Vicki Vale Division. This division was so-named because Sean Young was the first actress cast to play this role in the 1989 film "Batman" but an on-set injury led to Kim Basinger being hired as her replacement.
