When it comes to a a judges' decision, you don't add the judges scores together, you add up the number of judges who scored it in your favor.

In other words, it's not 46+48+48 vs. 49+47+47 = 142 vs. 143. It's Judge 2 + Judge 3 vs. Judge 1 = 2 vs. 1. That first judge could have scored it 5,000,000-0 in favor of Frankie & it wouldn't have changed the outcome.

Agreed. When I was watching it, I felt like Ben was coasting in the 5th because he left like he had it in the bag & was fighting to not get finished. I couldn't believe it that the'd be that confident after 4 narrow rounds.
