Elite 8 competition kicks off with a pair of matchups featuring a couple of women associated with handling DNA samples and a couple of New Orleans area natives who each won one pro championship. (For Day 12’s results, click here.)
FOXES: Lexi Belle (8) vs. Pauley Perrette (4)
Eighth-seeded Lexi Belle knocked off top-seeded Ali Landry, of Miss USA and Doritos commercial fame, in the previous round, while NCIS star and No. 4 seed Pauley Perrette defeated former music video vixen Bobbie Brown. Perrette is best known for playing forensic scientist Abby Sciuto in the CBS drama NCIS, and Lexi Belle is best known for being a hugely popular adult film actress. Both Belle and Perrette’s character Abby are frequently seen on camera handling lots of DNA. And while Perrette is often seen portraying her signature character wearing a spike collar, Belle commonly ends up donning a pearl necklace in many of her scenes.

JOCKS(es): Peyton Manning (1) vs. Mel Ott (4)
Top-seeded Peyton Manning made it to the Elite 8 by defeating No. 8 seed and prolific DNA donator Karl Malone. No. 4 seed Mel Ott got here by disposing of LSU and NBA big man Bob Pettit. Manning is the second-youngest Jock from the original field of 16. If Ott were alive today, he’d be the oldest at 116 years old. We’ll find out if sports fans recognize past greatness, or if they only appreciate those they’ve actually seen play. It’s “Omaha” vs. Ott.
Ready. Set. VOTE! (Polls close nightly at 10 p.m. CDT.)
