In case you missed it by now, last week I started a celebrity challenge that will pin 64 celebrities divide into 4 divisions (TV, movies, music and other) against each other. We played out first round, and explained the basic rules on last week’s The Stabcast. If you didn’t hear it yet, here are the basic rules. Celebrities were divided into their divisions and then seeded based on total web pages that mentioned their name (per Bing). From there the winners are determined via most recent stats from Google Trends. They get 1 point for recent search trends, and 1 point for recent news trends. In the event of a tie Yahoo buzz is looked at and the person with the higher ranking wins be default. Yahoo Buzz can also overrule the current decision if the person is in the top 20.
