Worst Company In America: Ticketmaster Vs. Spirit Airlines

Voting on this round is completely free! You just pay shipping, handling, service charges, print-at-home surcharges, voting tax, a 7% resort fee, and a $25 “because we can” charge.

Ticketmaster, is becoming the Susan Lucci of WCIA, with several straight appearances in the Final Four, including a Final Death Match loss to Comcast in 2010. It just can’t seem to get over the hump and actually win the Golden Poo.

But it is once again off to a great start, having violently called in Sallie Mae’s loan in Round One.

Meanwhile, its similarly fee-friendly opponent Spirit Airlines has already shown that fierce WCIA competitors come in small packages by taking out super-sized airline Delta in the first round.

Perhaps when the Spirit CEO called his company the “most consumer-friendly airline,” he meant that the airline made angry customers laugh and smile by calling itself consumer-friendly?

Will the rookie be able to spoil the veteran’s hopes at finally having a Golden Poo of its own? Vote, and then pay the mandatory $5 optional results fee to if your vote counted.

(Voting on this poll will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, March 23.)
