the Week Tournament with a whopping 95.6% of the vote in the final where
she was pitted against Emma Stone (star of the upcoming 'The Amazing
Quote (Adam Reisinger)
that was just... not close. It was not close to a level that defies
non-closeness. With a record number of votes cast in the four-tournament
history of the DGOW tournament, Summer Glau captured an incredible
95.6% of the vote. It obviously helped that multiple Summer-focused
websites picked up on the poll and publicized links, but even without
those, Emma Stone would have never stood a chance.
So, Summer adds her name to this list:
ALL-TIME ADAMREISINGER.com DGOW CHAMPIONS
2005: Monica Bellucci
2008: Christina Aguilera
2010: Scarlett Johansson
2011: Summer Glau

direct link to vote for Summer Glau : 2011 Desktop Girl Tournament - Final Four
On the first round, Summer Glau was pitted against The Cape alumni Izabella Miko
Analysis: Let's be honest here, this is an internet vote, and Summer Glau dominates internet votes. Well, technically River Tam dominates internet votes. All it'll take is one link to this from the io9 community and not only will Glau win this match-up, but she'll probably win the entire thing. But here's the thing. Izabella Miko is... (Joss forgive me)... hotter. It's true. Plus she's crazy involved with all sorts of green initiatives, which is hot in its own way.
Prediction: It's the internet. Glau will win. Easily. But I voted for Miko.
Results : Summer Glau won with 72% of the votes.
On the second round, Summer Glau was pitted against Laura Vandervoort
Analysis: As I pointed out last round, Summer Glau has a tendency to dominate these types of Internet votes, but Laura Vandervoort has a vocal fan base too, and they came out in droves in the first round. Either way, one of these sci-fi hotties is going out this round, which is going to be disappointing to many.
Prediction: Glau's ahead now, but I could see Vandervoort pulling off a comeback.
Results : Summer Glau won with 62% of the votes.
On the third round, Summer Glau was pitted against Katrina Bowden
Analysis: This is a battle between Esquire Magazine's Sexiest Woman Alive and every Sci-Fi website's Sexiest Everything Ever. Glau's won both of her matchups by more than Bowden's won hers, though that could just be a function of the pairings.
Prediction: This is the Internet, not a magazine, so I'm guessing Glau.
Results : Summer Glau won with 82% of the votes.
On the final four, Summer Glau was pitted against Sarah Michelle Gellar
Prediction: As much as it pains me to do so, I have to predict a
Glau victory in this one. But I'm still pulling for Gellar, and still
not above lobbying, should it become necessary
Results : Summer Glau won with 89% of the votes.
