A good bida makes a teleserye or movie interesting, but she's nothing without the help of a wicked kontrabida. Memorable villainesses make the protagonists shine, and there's nothing an audience enjoys more than hating on an effective kontrabida.

Note: Voting percentage does not equal the number of votes. Remember that as the voting margin (difference among the number of votes per entry) between the leading celebrity and the other nominees increases, the voting percentages will change. The bigger the differences in number of votes, the bigger the differences between percentages. This means that even though the number of votes for your bet is going up, the voting percentage can decrease.
