Surprising Nobody, Rey is Winning Rotten Tomatoes’ New Favorite Star Wars Character Poll
Rotten Tomatoes really wants to know who’s your favorite new Star Wars character. They’ve set up a poll to find out, and you’ll never guess who’s winning. Actually, I think you can, because you read the headline which is why you’re here but aaaanyway.
Rey’s currently in the lead with 46,132 votes (41%). Just as cool is Finn in second place with 21,871 votes (19%). So the top two leaders for favorite new Star Wars characters are a woman and a person of color. This is the 2016 I want to live in.
Because I know you’re wondering: BB-8 is tied for fourth with Poe at 11,252 votes (10%) and 11,208 votes (10%) respectively. But who’s in third, then? Kylo Ren with 16,006 votes (14%). That kind of figures.
These figures are accurate as of this writing, and to be honest, I hope Rey keeps her nearly insurmountable lead. Oh, and do yourself a favor and follow the first rule of the internet on this one: don’t read the comments below the poll.
