2011 Desktop Girl of the Week Tournament

 I didn't point it out last week, since I didn't want to spoil the surprise, but Sarah Michelle Gellar was the 32nd different DGOW selection since the end of the 2010 DGOW Tournament, which means it's time for the 2011 Tournament to begin. Who will join Monica Bellucci (2005), Christina Aguilera (2008) and Scarlett Johansson (2010) as DGOW champions?

The field is packed this year, with plenty of potential champions and lots of close first round matchups, so let's get to unveiling the first half of the bracket, with each region this year named for a female Avengers character (joining 2008's female Spider-Man characters and 2010's female X-Men characters).

Janet Pym Region

Kari Wuhrer

Those are the eight first-round matchups available for voting this week. Next week, the other eight first-round matchups will open for voting, and these will close. Then after that, the Sweet 16 will run for a week, then the Elite 8, then the Final Four. Assuming no disasters in scheduled voting, the championship match should be set on August 31, and voting on that will run through September 10. Then on Wednesday, September 14, I'll unveil the 2011 DGOW Tournament champion.
