Battle List: Bridget Jones vs Elle Woods

Inspired by @angusisley's Battle List. My two favorite blonde fictional heroes duke it out for first in our hearts. Genuinely concerned about the outcome of this because I love them both. Suggestions welcome!
  1. ELLE: Practically perfect in every way. Constantly underestimated by everyone because of sexism and bullshit stereotypes.
    15 points
  2. BRIDGET: Human disaster, yet still lovable. Constantly underestimated because of sexism and bullshit stereotypes... But also she is objectively a mess.
    5 points
  3. ELLE: Best friends are lovably dim sorority sisters and a clumsy manicurist. They are unfailingly supportive and genuinely good people.
    30 points
  4. BRIDGET: Best friends are other human disasters who push her out of a cab and leave her drunk in the street in front of her flat.
    0 points. YOU DESERVE BETTER, BRIDGE.
  5. ELLE: Law school journey bookended by Hoku's Perfect Day, one of my top 10 favorite pop songs. Other than that, meh.
    10 points
  6. BRIDGET: Amazing life soundtrack. Aretha, Chaka Khan, Ain't No Mountain High Enough, that All By Myself lip sync during the opening credits.
    40 points
  7. ELLE: "Bring Your Own Merlot" party bunny outfit disaster. She has a life altering epiphany while wearing it. In the musical, she quickly justifies her costume choice as Gloria Steinem, so extra points for feminism.
    20 points
  8. BRIDGET: Tarts and Vicars bunny outfit disaster. She finds out her horrible boss/boyfriend is cheating on her while wearing it. Very sad.

  9. ELLE: Major love interest is Luke Wilson.
    10 points
  10. BRIDGET: Major love interest is Colin Firth and his character is based on Mister Darcy. Excellent. A+

  11. ELLE: Montages include studying for the LSAT and getting a 179 (!!!!) and studying her brilliant ass off everywhere and then kicking everyone's ass during lectures because she is so smart! She just didn't know it yet! Truly iconic. Continues to inspire me from 2001 to the present day.

  12. BRIDGET: Montages include getting ready (hot) for Hugh Grant by jamming self into spanx/waxing and getting her shit together post-breakup with vodka, Chaka Khan, and spin class. Pretty standard as far as montages go.
    20 points
  13. ELLE: Her big triumph is winning a high profile murder case because she knows SO MUCH about beauty science. A huge victory that sets her up for the next 2 years of law school and a legal career.
    40 points
  14. BRIDGET: Her big triumphant moment is making her horrible boss/ex look like an idiot in front of the entire office and then she struts away to RESPECT. An attainable fantasy, a true triumph, but ultimately a small victory.
    25 points
  15. ELLE WOODS: Fictional proof that your brilliance lies within and if you work hard/don't give up, your life can be even more amazing than you and everyone else ever thought it could be.
    30 points
  16. BRIDGET: Fictional proof that despite your awkwardness and train wreck of a life, you can still find happiness and love. You can also have a career in PR/media without being able to speak normally to other humans.
    20 points
  17. BRIDGET JONES TOTAL: 140
  18. ELLE WOODS TOTAL: 185
  19. WINNER: ELLE WOODS
    What, like it's hard?
