CROOKED: Gil Dozier (7) vs. Edwin Edwards (2)
We’re not sure why a convicted former Louisiana Commissioner of Agriculture would need to hire a hitman, but No. 7 seed Gil Dozier apparently did. He certainly didn’t need one to take out his first-round competition, former Insurance Commissioner Sherman Bernard.

Edwards advanced to the second round by once again defeating the other “wizard under the sheets,” David Duke.

Today, Dozier’s taking on formerly incarcerated former Louisiana governor and current congressional candidate Edwin Edwards. Edwards advanced to the second round by once again defeating the other “wizard under the sheets,” David Duke.

COOKED: Oysters Bienville (7) vs. Boiled Crawfish (2)
Mollusks or crustaceans? Broiled or boiled? Cheese and butter, or corn and potatoes? That’s essentially the choice you have between today’s cooked competitors.

Oysters Bienville made it here by defeating shrimp creole in Round 1, while boiled crawfish sliced up muffaletta in the opening round.

Who will win this delicious shell game?

Ready. Set. VOTE! (Polls close nightly at 10 p.m. CDT.)

 

FYI: If you’re trying to make sense of this graft vs. grub competition, here’s an explanation.RedShtick-Top-ColumnStop
