OK, it's about to get real. Day two of the PopSugar 100 bracket brought some new surprises and some changes in the lead, but the round is not over yet. It's all fun and games, but here are a few thoughts I have looking at how things stand at the moment. As much as voting is about personal preference, it's also about who had the bigger year — roughly from middle of last Summer to now — so let's take a couple of the more fun matchups:
Zac Efron vs. Kate Beckinsale: Now, I fully agree that Kate Beckinsale is perfection. She's stunning and seems super down-to-earth. Plus she and her hot husband can't get enough of each other, but really? Zac Efron made the jump from small screen to big screen this year, landing some huge roles and becoming one hot commodity. Plus, all signs point to him being on the up and up! Where are the Efron fans to vote for their guy? He's hosting SNL this weekend, has Beckinsale ever done that? No. It's not just High School Musical supporters who love those baby blues these days . . .
Sean Penn vs. Patrick Dempsey: Patrick helped turn Grey's Anatomy into a show we love again, but does that compare to winning an Oscar? He's been beating Sean since the Pop100 voting started. Sean starred in a courageous and game-changing movie, all the while keeping his politics at the forefront. You may not agree — and sure he can come off pretty slimy — but the man earned his number four seed.
Jessica Simpson Yay Neil Patrick Harris, but sad about Jessica Simpson losing so badly. I know that she has her detractors, lots of 'em, but I have a soft spot for Miss Simpson. Where are you, Jessica Simpson fans? Your girl needs your help if she wants to even make it a close match!
SunChips® brand believes that small steps can make a big difference. They have been taking small steps to help make their snacks in a better way. On Earth Day 2008, SunChips® and PepsiCo flipped the “on” switch at the first commercialized solar field in Modesto, CA, and began to save 1.7 million pounds of CO2 per year in the process. SunChips® has already eliminated five billion square inches of packaging. Their most recent small step is to pack some snacks in bags made of 33 percent renewable materials.
And now, an Earth Day preview. On Earth Day 2010, SunChips® will introduce the world’s first fully compostable chip bag of its kind.
