VOWELS.

  1. 1.
    E
    Initially lost points due to the fact that it is not needed to spell "vacation." Surged ahead when the judges realized it is the only vowel(used twice!) in "dessert."
  2. 2.
    A
    Usually overrated. Being the first letter of the alphabet leads people to vote heavily for this natural leader. Gained points for the name "Agamemnon."
  3. 3.
    U
    Our biggest jumper this year. Definitely the giver of the vowels. Seeing expanded use in recent years with the popularity of Uber.
  4. 4.
    O
    O is the weakest of the frictionless sounds, lacking a center component that would provide backbone. Dominated by the other vowels, It is hard to type the letter without autocorrect making it an i or u.
  5. 5.
    I
    The bad boy of the vowel world. All i talks about is himself. Our judges voted to change the spelling of Ego to Igo.
  6. 6.
    Y
    Seriously, pick a team.
