Bracket | Most Memorable GOP Debate Moments (Round 2, Day 1)

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Round 2 begins with match-ups in the Audience Participation and Gaffe divisions, and the winners will go on to represent their categories in the Final Four.

Rick Perry's "Oops" and Mitt Romney's $10,000 bet, the #1 and #2 seeds, respectively, easily made it out of Round 1 in the Gaffes department. Results were similar in the Audience Participation division, where the booing of a gay soldier (#1) and "Let him die" (#2) each advanced to the Elite Eight.

Check out the rest of the remaining moments on our bracket below.

The classic rivalry, rekindled. When it comes to the most memorable gaffe of the 2012 debate season, it's Perry against Romney all over again. Only this time, we're not sure that either of them wants to win.
