Some Mets fans are celebrities. Eight of the biggest celebrity Mets fans faced off and Twitter picked Dylan O’Brien as the ultimate celebrity Mets fan.

It’s no surprise that there are many celebrities who are fans of the New York Mets. But when it comes to being a fan, who are the biggest celebrity Mets fans?

We took to Twitter with a sample of eight celebrities who are fans of the New York Mets. We then matched each of them together to fight through three rounds to determine who is the ultimate celebrity Mets fan.

More than 2,500 votes were tallied and many hearts were broken as celebrities were eliminated.

Let’s take a look at the seeding for our celebrity Mets fan tournament.

Number One: Jerry Seinfeld

Everybody should know who Jerry Seinfeld is. He’s starred in almost 200 episodes of the Seinfeld show and made a bunch of other appearances in other shows. He’s also one of the biggest Mets fans you can find.

Number Two: Kevin James

Kevin was the star of The King of Queens and is now working on Kevin Can Wait. He’s also appeared in multiple comedy movies alongside guys like Adam Sandler.

Number Three: Jim Breuer

Jim doesn’t have as big a filmography as everyone else, but he’s made himself very well known in the music and standup world. Mets fans have grown to know him very well because of his love for the team and his Mets related videos.

Number Four: Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel is one of the biggest Mets fans that you can find. He’s thrown a first pitch, and even brought the team for a surprise appearance on his show in Brooklyn days before the World Series began in 2015.

Number Five: Jon Stewart

Number Seven: Dylan O’Brien

Those who are fans of Dylan know of his starring role in both The Maze Runner and the Teen Wolf TV series. Dylan has thrown out a first pitch and talks about the Mets on Twitter.

Number Eight: Ray Romano

Romano closes out this list, you all know him from Everybody Loves Raymond and Ice Age. You had to have been not paying attention to the show if you missed out on the times that the Mets were mentioned or even appeared on the show.

ROUND ONE

The highlight of the first round was the showdown between O’Brien and James. Originally Kevin James was the favorite to win. About one third through the round, James was destroying O’Brien with 75 percent of all the votes.

That quickly changed as fans of O’Brien quickly rushed to his rescue. Over the final few hours of the voting period, he stormed ahead and turned 25 percent into a 72 percent victory.

The rest of the first round featured Ray Romano versus Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock versus Jim Breuer, and Jon Stewart versus Jimmy Kimmel. The largest victory belonged to Seinfeld, who won with 88 percent of the vote. Breuer and Stewart won both of their matches with 61 percent of the vote.

ROUND TWO

Because of such an upset, the rankings were changed a bit and round two featured Breuer versus O’Brien and Seinfeld versus Stewart.

Just like in the first round, O’Brien started off on the losing end, with just 15 percent, but in the end, he won with 64 percent of the vote.

The battle between Seinfeld and Stewart was more of a landslide as Seinfeld won with 80 percent of the vote.

FINAL ROUND

The winner takes all round went the same way as the previous two rounds when they involved O’Brien. At one point, Seinfeld had 89 percent of the vote. But soon enough, O’Brien’s fans took a hold of the voting and turned things around.

The final round was the most voted matchup, with more than 800 votes in total, and by the end of everything, it was O’Brien with 77 percent of the votes.
