    We don't often have votes or play games on the Falcon Crest forum like there are elsewhere on this site so I thought I would start one: The World Cup of Falcon Crest

    How It Will Work
    The World Cup of Falcon Crest is a popularity contest between different Falcon Crest characters in a knockout competition with the same format as the knockout stage of the FIFA World Cup.

    I will take the 16 characters who have appeared in the most episodes of Falcon Crest and randomly pair them to compete against each other in a match. Forum members can then vote on who they want to win each contest and the one with the most votes will go through to the next round and loser will be eliminated.

    After round 1, the 8 winning characters will go through to the quarter finals where they will again compete against each other to qualify for the semi-finals and then the final where the remaining 2 characters will compete to be the winner.

    How You Can Take Part
    Each week there will be 2 fixtures and if you want to take part, post the names of the characters you would like to win each match. There will be 2 matches each week which will run simultaneously. In the event of a tie, the choice of the person who posts first (excluding my vote) will be the winner of the match.

    When Will The World Cup Start?
    The World Cup of Falcon Crest will start on Wednesday 30th August when I will post details of the first 2 matches. We will have one week to cast our votes for the winners of each round and voting will close at midnight on the following Tuesday. The following week's fixtures will be posted each Wednesday until the tournament is concluded.

    If you have any questions, please post them on this thread. I hope it will be fun and less predictable than a standard vote for our top 10 Falcon Crest characters.

    Just to clarify, when the vote closes, I will add them up and character with the most votes in each match will go through to the next round and the other character will be omitted. When all rounds are completed, we will have a winner.

    Lance v Dan: While the best of Lance is probably better than the best of Dan, the worst of Lance is almost definitely worse than the worst of Dan, but ... Lance.

    Phillip v Emma: Emma was great when she was used well, but Phillip's unknowability just edges it for me, so ... Phillip

    1. Lance the hottie of the show.
    2. Philip because he was a great reader of people. Emma was fun but Philip was smarter.

    1) Dan – the reformed biker, who returned to the wine country after a spell in the clinker. Angela took him under her wing and gave him a job. He soon set his sights on Vicki Gioberti and Melissa Agretti.

    2) Emma – the baby of the Channing family. Over protected by her mother, who treated her very much as if she was still a teenager. Despite her dippy ways Emma provided a lot of humour, especially when she talked back to Angela. She also had her fair dose of men but was very unlucky in love and the last man Emma had in season 9 wronged her big time.


    Richard is having a housewarming party. Most of the Tuscany Valley residents are there but Emma isn’t yet. A limo arrives and Emma is back from Texas, (a scene from season 2, 1982-’83):

    Angela is talking to a business associate, just as Emma walks up and says, “Hello mother. How’s tricks?”

    Angela is astonished, she’s back!

    Julia: “How did you know that we all would be here today?”

    Emma: “Well this party is news. I read about it, in the society section of the Globe.”

    Lance: “Well you’ve managed to keep yourself pretty scarce, these last few months. Congratulations!”

    Emma: “Well I had to, to get myself together.”

    Angela: “You must be exhausted Emma. Let’s take you home darling.”

    Emma: “You’re looking rather pale yourself mother. Are you sure you’re getting enough rest?”

    Angela: “Let’s go Emma!”

    Emma: “You know something the climate in Texas would be wonderful for you. Houston is just wonderful this time of year.”

    Angela: “I’m not going anywhere.”

    Emma: “Well neither am I. This is the first party I’ve been to in ages and I’m going to enjoy it!”

    There's no place for vagueness when it comes to Falcon Crest!

    The polls have closed and your votes have been counted and verified. The result of the first 2 matches are as follows:

    Match 1
    Dan Fix 1 - Lance Cumson 7

    Match 2
    Philip Erikson 4 - Emma 4

    According to the rules of the contest, when there is a tie in votes, the casting vote goes to the first person to vote, excluding my own vote. That person was @Falcon Crest I who voted for Emma Channing.

    Therefore the 2 characters to go through to the quarter-finals are:

    Thank you to everyone who participated in this round. It was a close vote for match 2 so every vote counted to the outcome.

    My votes:

    Richard vs Julia
    : I'm disappointed that 2 of the great Falcon Crest characters were drawn against each other so early in the contest because it is genuinely difficult for me to chose a favourite. Finally, decided to vote for Julia to go through because of the key role she played in some of my favourite Falcon Crest moments such as the reveal of who shot Carlo Agretti and her "death" in the fire was one of the most moving moments ever in Falcon Crest.

    Vicky vs Angela: An easier choice for me as Angela is not just my favourite Falcon Crest characters but also one of my all time favourite characters in any TV show. Vicky also had an annoying way of pronouncing Mario (Maaah-Ree-Oh), but that might just have been her American accent, so I'm reluctant to vote for her on that basis.

    Match 1: Julia Cumson
    Match 2: Angela Channing

    I liked the friendly and the dangerous Julia...but I didn't really enjoy her part on the show when she returned.
    Richard was a great baddy with many layers, a fabulous background and an interesting weakness (the wife of his half-brother). That, combined with David Selby's performance of this character:

    match 1. Richard Channing
    match 2. Angela Channing
