After 3 days and 205 votes totaled, Rev. Smith’s photo on hotornot.com was inactivated with an an impressive score of 6.9 from the voting public. But days later, the score mysteriously dropped to a 4.9 and has stayed there since. Some Smith supporters are blaming confusing ballots. “I think a lot of people meant to rate him a 9 or 10, but then, like, accidentally gave him a 3,” said one. “In the end, I think it was the overseas ballots that really brought him down,” noted one analyst.
