Voting for the Tucson Weekly Celebrity Showdown's Round of 16 is Live!

Posted By on Thu, Mar 28, 2013 at 12:08 PM

Folks, the votes have been counted, celebrities have been eliminated, and we're finally ready to move our Tucson Weekly Celebrity Showdown Round of 16 — just in time for the Wildcats to play in today's Sweet Sixteen game against Ohio State today.

We totally planned it this way.

So, who's going to be moving on to the next round, and who will be heading back to their lovely homes, hanging their heads in defeat?

This time 'round, we've got former Wildcat, local business owner and current NBA star Derrick Williams taking on world-renowned, locally-grown music legend Linda Ronstadt; UA men's basketball coach Sean Miller (whose stock might be affected by the results of today's game) against Olympic swimming medalist and swimsuit model Amanda Beard; Today show host Savannah Guthrie against Arizona football head coach Rich Rodriguez; retired astronaut (and narrow victor over the Ooh-Aah Man!) Mark Kelly against culinary superstar Janos Wilder; former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords against local purveyor of fine dining Mr. An; college basketball coaching legend Lute Olson against Tucson's weather superstar Chuck George; Arizona Wildcats softball superstar Jennie Finch against former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona; and the woman responsible for the mid-'90s avalanche of sparkly, rainbow-covered goods, Lisa Frank taking on champion of natural eating and health, Andrew Weil.

So who ya got, Tucson? Voting for this round ends next week — by then, we'll see who's made it to the Round of Eight, and who'll be consoling themselves drinking one of our finely crafted local brews.

Vote here!
