Johnny and Tara Advance to the March Media Madness Championship Round!

JW_TL_2015_01_e6-1The Tara-and-Johnny juggernaut cannot be stopped. Not even by a bikini.


FINAL UPDATE!! They won!!


UPDATE!! CHAMPIONSHIP voting has begun!

Please VOTE VOTE VOTE here for Johnny and Tara! Polling ends Sunday, April 5, 8 pm ET.




Yes!! Despite a late voting rally by Kacie McDonnell fans Thursday night, Johnny and Tara made it through the Final Four and into the championship round, posting a comfortable lead over their opponent in the closing tally:


USA Today poll co-creator Ty Duffy announced the news on Twitter after voting had ended:

Surprisingly (at least to me), The Glitter Twins will not face Charles Barkley for the championship, but rather Gonzalo “Papi” Le Batard, who co-hosts the ESPN2 show, Highly Questionable, with his son Dan Le Batard.

Papi is an ESPN fan favorite—obviously, since he made it to the final bracket—so it’s up to us to meet the challenge and vote Johnny and Tara to victory. Championship round polling is expected to start later today or tomorrow, so please keep an eye out here and on Twitter for the bat signal / new voting link!
