GC Freelancer Finals: Death Match Edition

Alright, so we weeded out the first round and wrapped up the GC freelancer finals yesterday, leaving us with 3 candidates and a lot of comments both good and bad for each.

In the interest of making this easy on everyone, let's analyze. As is, it's looking like we need a final head-to-head death match to be sure.

I've included views/comments stats with each post but it's worth pointing out that the second round only started on Monday so it's a bit hard to gauge "popularity" based on pageviews for the second submissions and pageviews/comments are not all that matter around here.

Here are our finalists in alphabetical order so no one thinks we're playing favorites. Truth be told, we're more interested in what you all think than what we do at this point in the competition.

Please do us a favor and rank them 1, 2 and 3 with 1 being who you'd choose if you were a power-hungry public accounting reject like Colin looking to add to his esteemed team of rejects. If you feel a head-to-head death match is in order from here, tell us who you'd eliminate immediately. Any other constructive criticism is welcome but let's remember people have feelings.
