Burlesque Bitch Fan Favorite Online Contest 2014

with quotes from the contestants!

by Burlesque Bitch

We are at day 10 of The Fan Favorite Contest! That's about 1/3 of the way there. Time flies! April 15- May 15 is set aside for choosing who will be the next Burlesque Bitch, to represent our website.

Each contestant gets one vote, when you comment on their Burlesque Bitch profile. You may vote once per day. The day resets itself, based n your time zone, at midnight. You may comment a few minutes before midnight and a few minutes after midnight, and that would be 2 votes. If you comment at 1pm and 5pm, that is still just one vote. The contest will end at 0:00 eastern standard time (NYC time), for everyone, no matter what region you vote from.

The top 6 all get invitations to perform at the finals for The Burlypicks in Hollywood, later this year, bypassing the regional competition to earn their places. Kat De Lac was The Burlesque Bitch of 2013, with the highest total of votes. Her blog and calendar of upcoming events was displayed front and center of the website for the year! Her images were all over our facebook page. Her year of fame all started when she was awarded a medal at last year's Burlypicks finals award's ceremony, for being the People's choice, and it will end when she passes it off to the next in line! So, who will it be?

As a recap from last year, Nikita Bitch entered the contest 2 weeks in, and made it to the top 6! It wasn't clear until the last week that the winner would be Kat De Lac or Clea Cutthroat. In fact, it was down to the wire; Kat pulled ahead within the last couple of hours of the contest!

So who are the performers running for Burlesque Bitch of 2014?
