Fug Madness 2008: Cher, Sweet 16
(5) FERGIE vs. (16) COURTNEY PELDON
Okay, so it turns out Peldon is a tough competitor. Who knew? We all thought she was sort of a hilarious mascot, but it seems she is also A FIGHTER. Miss Fergie Ferg should put up a good fight, though. I mean, look at her:
It's like if Hermione and Miss America had a baby and forced it to become a stripper. And then forced it to join the Girl Scouts. And then made it a Pink Lady. And then talked it into modeling for Cost Plus's line of accessories. And then made her into a total douchebag. Oh, wait -- sorry, that's Chad Michael Murray. Anyway, it's been a LONG HARD ROAD for Fergs, and many was the night that she was put away wet.
On the other hand, this IS this:
I mean, I don't even need to write anything.
That's not fair! Fergie really is teh fug and her crimes are multitudinous and rarely interrupted by well playeds , but the Peldon is the Peldon. Peldon is almost a synonym for fug. I voted for the Ferg anyway.

See, I have to go for Peldon because I get the impression that most of Fergie's attempts are just stage costumes, whereas Peldon REALLY DRESSES LIKE THAT.

La Peldon's like the Little Fugger who Could. I love it.

Forget that Peldon looks like a cabbage in bloom in this particular photo and take a look at the Fergster. There's so many things wrong, you can't help but go cross-eyed.

I went for Fergie-ferg - love her long time! I'm done this with this new upstart peldon . . . Has she pissed herself in public? Does she spell everything? No! You have to EARN the Fug!

Ooh, I actually got to vote in Fug Madness!! (Due to time differences and such, I missed the first rounds.) Anyway, I got Fergie on this one. Fergie - well, you can either say that she's had the time and opportunity to let her fugliness mature and hit its stride, or that she's old enough to know better. Either way, Fergie wins for me.

How can Josh D. want to marry that FUG?? It's really beyond me.

The picture of Courtney Peldon made me crave coleslaw!
She just seems so earnest in her fug. How can you not vote for her?!!

What a tough choice. On one hand you've got the token female in this generation's 'Village People' vs the young lady who never wears anything that makes sense to me. As much as Fergie annoys, I cannot deny the total fugness of lil miss Peldon.
Posted by: mel | Mar 27, 2008 9:10:52 AM
....to be a true fug, you should be famous for actually being something other than a fug, don't ya' think?
Posted by: Lisa | Mar 27, 2008 9:12:13 AM
I mean, where do you GET the clothes that Peldon wears? *Shudder*
Posted by: Smarmie | Mar 27, 2008 9:12:30 AM
I had to vote three times on this one: once for Fergie because she's just too easy, and then twice for the Peldon because whereas you have to earn the fug, those sleeves reminded me of veiny batwings, and so I retracted and decided that was even worse than looking like a stoned girlscout.
Posted by: Caitlin | Mar 27, 2008 9:13:59 AM
On the one hand, I have sort of a soft spot for Fergie. On the other hand, doesn't there come a point where we should be voting for people who are famous for an actual reason? Otherwise, aren't we just encouraging the Phoebe Price's of the world?

hahahahaha "oops, that's chad michael murphy," oops, i just pulled a ferg in my pants laughing. however, i voted for la peldon, because as hard as that made me laugh, peldon's getup right there inspired the theme from xanadu to start running through my head, and that, friends, is TRUE FUG.

Come on Fergie Ferg. This Peldon chick is a real upset to my chart!
Posted by: Meg | Mar 27, 2008 9:14:25 AM
Peldon...Ferg...Peldon...Ferg. Gah! I can't decide...I was going to mention cabbage but someone beat me to it and right now cabbage is not my friend, but I like The Ferg's skirt, so I say Peldon is the 'winner' here.

I am unable not to vote for someone who wet herself onstage. Even if Peldon's clothes are, by a hair, worse.

I had to go with Peldon. Fergie has kind of cleaned up her act. She can look sane. Peldon...?
Posted by: mkm | Mar 27, 2008 9:16:14 AM
I had to go with Peldon because she constantly exudes fug. She is currently fug, and seems to be looking for new ways to expand her fug in the future.
OTOH, Fergie seems to have been most fug in the past and seems to be on the upswing.

Fug girls, you best summed up the reason I'm voting for Peldon (and will continue to do so until she reigns Fug Supreme:
"Who the hell does Courtney Peldon think she is? I suspect she thinks she's Hilary Duff or Kaley Cuoco, but really she's some hybrid who has tricked people into thinking she might be Hilary Duff, so they'd better not turn her down at the door, or else she'll start singing as a form of torture. There's a touch of The Insanity in her always-wide-open blue eyes, and there's a touch of the ho in all of her clothing."
Seriously, Fergie can't even compete with that!
Posted by: Lindsey | Mar 27, 2008 9:17:10 AM
Fergie is a performer and as part of her stage presence she has to be larger than life...Peldon is a rich chick who shows up to places wearing weird stuff just because. PELDON on this one!
Posted by: Michelle | Mar 27, 2008 9:18:12 AM
I have to wonder if Peldon's fashion mis-steps are deliberate - she seems like a huge self-promoter, in league with Phoebe Price. At least, I hope it's all due to the fact she's actually a mastermind at Getting Her Name Out There - otherwise, she's just a tragically BAD dresser.
Posted by: Megan | Mar 27, 2008 9:19:44 AM
Peldon needs to be stopped! She's a nobody, and she's beaten out too many true fuggers. Giving her the win is like giving any random person the win, like this kid: http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u39/8JM5/this-kid-is-awesome.jpg
Posted by: Dani | Mar 27, 2008 9:19:45 AM
Peldon. No question.
Posted by: Jolene | Mar 27, 2008 9:20:16 AM
While Miss Peldon is somewhat blind and believes she's a denizen of the slutty toad stool people of Planet Butterfly, she's also cute, quirky and seemingly earnest as all get out. Ferg on the other hand makes many video length's worth of narcissistic fug. She doesn't just wear fug, she embodies fug.
