2 Seed Kevin Malone (The Office) vs. 7 Seed Count von Count (Sesame Street)
Just when you think things are going so well for Kevin Malone, he always seems to mess things up (remember when he dropped the pot of chili then swam in it??). The kids (or nostalgic parents) came out to vote and the Count moves on to the Sesame Sweet Sixteen.
11 Seed Guillermo Pallomari (Narcos) vs. 14 Seed Bill Lumbergh (Office Space)
In what has been one of the Cinderella stories of this tournament, Bill Lumbergh decided it would be greeeeeaat if he could continue to play through the weekend. He has a tough matchup against Count von Count in the next round.

Ethics & Compliance Division
1 Seed Frank Abagnale, Jr. (Catch Me If You Can) vs. 8 Seed Michael Corleone (The Godfather)
