That’s right: the winner of Holy Taco’s 2010 Douchebag Tournament is: KANYE WEST!
Before we get into the Awards Ceremony, let’s take a look back at the long road that Kanye had to take to get here: in the 1st Round, Kanye demolished Jon Gosselin without any trouble. In the 2nd Round, Kanye knocked out uber-douchebag John Mayer, and a seemingly uncontested ass-whooping of Lady Gaga in the 3rd Round took Kanye into the Division Finals against Jay Leno. Kanye won the Entertainment Division, garnering 68% of the votes. From there, it was off to the Final Four Round, where Kanye faced Notre Dame Quarterback and Nationally-renowned dickface Jimmy Clausen. Kanye obliterated Clausen, walking away with 68% of the votes and an invite to the Championship Round against Glenn Beck. Beck proved to be Kanye’s most admirable foe of the tournament, but Kanye managed to slip away with 53.4% of the total votes, crowning him the Douchebag of the Year.
While this isn’t a surprising victory for Kanye, it is well-deserved and long overdue. As a 4-seed in last year’s Douchebag Tournament, Kanye only made it to the 3rd Round before being knocked out of the running by girl-hitter Chris Brown. Over the past year, Kanye has been honing his douchebag skills, and he came into this year’s tournament with his eye on the prize. Unlike nearly every other endeavor that Kanye embarks on, his performance in the 2010 Douchebag Tournament did not disappoint.
Now it’s time to present Kanye with the 2010 Douchebag of the Year Award, which is a photoshopped picture of a trophy. Since we don’t know Kanye personally (surprise!) and since he’s probably to difficult to get a hold of (we’re too lazy to test this theory), we’re going to leave the award here on our site, and he can come and retrieve it when he gets a chance. Kanye: if you’re reading this, stop checking out stupid sites on the internet and start getting your life sorted out. If you’re still reading this, then write us an acceptance speech. We’ll post it. I promise. Here’s your photoshopped picture of a trophy:
Thanks to everyone who voted in the tournament, and thanks for not rigging our survey monkey polls. We’d also like to thank Douchebags everywhere for a) making us feel better about ourselves, and b) giving us some easy content to post on our site for two weeks straight. Let this tournament be a lesson to us all: if you really want it bad enough, and if you’re a complete dickhead all the time to everyone you ever meet, and if you follow the dreams and tastes and fashion styles and trends of everyone around you, then you too may someday be crowned the Douchebag of the Year. Stay golden, pony boys.
