Hey, someone voted for Jo first! I know we joke how that's all this board was about 15-20 years ago, but it is nice to see various of the girls get fan support (now we just need at least 1 big Tootie fan to come and vote for a Tootie order, lol).

As for the main four, my list goes:
  1. Blair
  2. Jo
  3. Tootie
  4. Natalie

I know the Nancy fanatics from years ago consider her the star of the show, but when rewatching the series it's very obvious Lisa is the star of the main 4. Blair had the most interactions with the girls and had just as many episodes each season centered on her. Out of all the girls, Blair is the only one this show could not do without. The only reason the character of Jo worked for fans is because of Blair. Blair brought out Jo's spunk a lot. There's noway Jo would have had the same success with fans if it wasn't for Blair to bounce off of. I also think Blair helped Jo grow a lot as the series went on.
I agree, not the Molly stuff but that Blair is absolutely the star since season 1. I actually voted that same exact order.

Blair would be horrified at that number. I can see her saying "ONLY 70%? There HAS to be some mistake! Was Jo counting the votes with her fingers?"

I can actually see her eyebrow rose and put on a sultry look on her face as she speaks: "whatever happened to my popularity here? I think i'm fading....."

That's quite refreshing: someone chose TOOTIE as their number 1!

Tootie definitely deserves it and i'm glad as I chose her second after Blair in my choice...but i'm still convinced Mindy Cohn is lurking in the shadows with a couple of SO accounts and cast those 2 votes for herself!
