It was a hard fought contest that came down to the final minutes. I sat and refreshed my computer browser and watched in awe as the numbers of comments climbed higher and higher.
In the end, it was Billy & Maria who won the San Carlos Cutest Couple Contest with 55 votes, inching out Jim & Debbie by one vote, and Dan and Kris by four votes!
Just after 9 p.m., Dan Robinson informed me of a computer glitch that interfered with his couple receiving comments. In a desperate attempt to maintain fairness to the exciting competition, I thought to postpone the contest.
But this isn’t about winning! This is about love! And Billy and Maria gave an amazing showing by racking up so many votes given they had one less day than their counterparts.
Jim and Debbie were the first to take the contest to the next level. They raised the bar and kept it there for the competitions duration.
And Dan and Kris may have won the whole thing if not for a last minute system error.
Thank you also to Zak and Jessica and Ed and Joyce, both of whom are beautiful couples in their own right with so much love and support, as shown in their comments.
On behalf on San Carlos Patch, THANK YOU for your hard work and participation in this great contest! This has been so much fun.
I sincerely apologize for the last minute confusion. But as they say…glitch happens.
Today is about love. And you’re all really beautiful couples. I hope you have a wonderful day.
