Looks like even the White House has Katniss fever! The National Thanksgiving Turkey pardon became a ‘Hunger Games’ style turkey death match this year — only this time, Americans were responsible for picking the Capitol’s Victor. Did we make the right choice?

We all obviously wanted Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) to win the “real” Hunger Games, but did America make the right decision when it chose the National Thanksgiving Turkey? The race between “Little Monster” Caramel and “Proud Strutter” Popcorn was close, but there can only be one Victor. Read on to find out who gobbled their way into America’s heart!

Popcorn Wins The White House Thanksgiving ‘Hunger Games’

Sorry, Caramel. The bad news is, just like Peeta, you take second place. But the good news is — also just like Peeta — you get to live, too!

So the White House’s version of the Games wasn’t as brutal as the big screen’s, but it was still a thrilling race. Members of #TeamCaramel and #TeamPopcorn voted for their favorite on Facebook and Twitter, and the winning pardoned turkey was announced on Nov. 27.

HollywoodLife sends its sincerest congrats to Popcorn, though Caramel got lucky when President Obama and co. realized that turning Thanksgiving into a national death match wasn’t a great idea, since none of us actually want to meet our turkeys before we eat them.

Did The Right Turkey Win?

Voting for the White House Hunger Games has unfortunately closed, but you can still lament Caramel’s loss if you prefer his performance in this official White House video:

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did the right turkey win? Should Caramel come back for the Quarter Quell?
