2006 AFTI Media Boy Poll In Memory of Max

Poll Stats, "What If", Fun Facts, and Trivia

Many thanks to Mediajock for all his hard work putting this very interesting information together!


Looks like another poll season has come and gone - and this one was indeed an exciting one from this side of the ballot box. With the guard changing and a lot of newer idols coming to prominence, there also came a lot of different ways many actors came out way on top. Such years as this stress the notion that there is never "just one winner" in this poll and that every vote does indeed count.

There were 70 votes cast for any of the 989 submitted nominees during the 11 days the poll was open. From these:
