After weeks of anticipation, this year’s Fiesta Madness tournament has come to an end with Scarlet taking the top spot! The radiant red, which has also been #1 in sales since it’s debut in 2004, was the favorite to win from the beginning. However, it wasn’t smooth sailing for Scarlet on its way to the top, having to endure a nail biter in the final round. Nor was it for fellow championship competitor Lapis, which was almost ousted after Round 1! Read on to see how the votes fell throughout the tournament.
Round One results: We were pleasantly surprised by the amount of feedback we got during Round One of Fiesta Madness- over 1000 votes! Most match-ups were decisive, except for the Lapis vs. Turquoise pairing. Only 7 votes separated the two blues!
Round Two results: The fans had spoken, and the Final Four was decided. Slate was the shining star of this round. Our newest color, which started the tournament with a Round One bye, bested Ivory by over 600 votes!
Round Three results: It was clear which colors were the top seeds by this round. Scarlet and Lapis waltzed past Lemongrass and Slate with ease. Now the only question that remained: Which would come out on top?
Championship results: In one of our closest matches of the tournament, Scarlet came out victorious! The veteran trumped Lapis by a mere 17 votes- a heartbreaking loss for fans of the cool blue. However, there’s always next year…
