If Nole Fans vote was indeed the decider, it's somewhat curious, because Nick the Greek voted before she did. Only his vote was deleted because it was too late.
But what if he voted for Keech?
I can't take something I don't see into consideration. I never saw the post you're talking about, even though I realized it had been there based on your post. For the future, for this reason, it can be a good idea to be the first to vote after voting closes, you just might decide a tie.
Johnny is free to change the rule to "First vote after the announcement
of a tie" if he wants to. I considered this alternative also. Obviously he can't lock the thread like AJ can.
