  1. 6000 people voted for total of 149,139 vote. A cool 24+ votes per person?? The ballot stuffing seems to dilute the results just a touch….

  2. This contest is such a hoax. Business entries are only accepted if the business PAYS to be listed. Best on the Beach nominations should just be open to all and not a money maker bogus undeserving and unwarranted recognition!

    • That is not true. Nominations came from the public and no one had to pay to be a nominee. Businesses could buy enhanced listings with a photo, but could not buy a nomination. Best of the Beach 2019 was open to all, with a three-week public nomination period and a three-week voting period.
