After three weeks of voting, the first two rounds are in the books, and the Starlet Madness Sweet Sixteen is set!
2013 Starlet Madness Champion Gianna Michaels knocked out 2014 AVN Female Performer of the Year Bonnie Rotten in the second round to continue her quest to claim back to back victories in the second annual Starlet Madness tournament. April O’Neil, who lost to Gianna in last year’s finals is also still alive entering the third round, after knocking out Gracie Glam this week. Gianna, and April are joined by Tori Black, Belladonna, Asa Akira, and Lexi Belle as the six starlets who have made it to the third round in both of the first two tournaments.
In 2013 Riley Reid was a #1 seed after being named XBiz’s Best New Starlet, but she was eliminated in the second round by eighth seeded Teagan Presley. This year, Reid became the only starlet to claim #1 seeds in both of the first two tournaments, by being named XBiz’s Female Performer of the Year. Once again she ran into 8 seed Teagan Presley in the second round, but this year Riley was able to come out on top, and she is the only #1 seed still alive in this year’s tournament after two rounds.
Fan favorite Belladonna eliminated Vote In Poll #1 winner Sophie Dee in the second round, while Vote In Poll #2 winner Holly Michaels eliminated Joanna Angel to advance to the third round. It remains to be seen if Holly can match 2013 Vote In Poll winner April O’Neil’s run from nearly missing the tournament to making it all the way to the finals, but it’s worth noting that should Tuesday’s voting go in both of their favor, Holly will meet April in the fourth round on Wednesday.
Voting for Round 3 will open on Monday, and continue through Tuesday.
