Round 2 of the FishbowlDC Summer Superlatives came to a close, and with it, who’s been named the Hottest PR Guy/Girl, Biggest Troublemaker, and Best Hair.
In the category for Biggest Troublemaker, HuffPost’s Jen Bendery took the win with just under 50% of the votes over The Daily Caller’s Betsy Rothstein, former editor of FishbowlDC; POLITICO’s Lauren French; The New York Times’ Jonathan Martin; The Daily Caller’s Patrick Howley; and Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle.
Moki Media’s Dannia Hakki wins Best Hair, over Washingtonian’s Kate Bennett, CNN’s Erin McPike, former Fishbowl-er turned Mediaite’s Eddie Scarry, Benny Johnson, and WJLA’s Kris Van Cleave.
And in the most voted for category of 2014 thus far with nearly 6,000 votes, American Beverage Association’s Chris “Gindy” Gindlesperger is the 2014 Hottest PR Person with more than 40% of the votes. Early on, it looked like it could be POLITICO’s Olivia Petersen, or former FishbowlDC editor – CNN’s Matt Dornic. As the competition progressed, Gindy bested Petersen and Dornic, as well as Moki’s Maha Hakki, Story Partner’s Lauren Culberton, and SKDK’s Doug Thornell.
Earlier today we announced Round 3 nominees. Voting goes until Friday, August 15, at 6pm. A full list of 2014 FishbowlDC Superlative winners will follow.
