Mandy Flora said she is Team Gale, "although I am sad this is the movie's focus since it didn't seem so 'twilightish' in the book.
"I like Gale better because he wasn't so mushy about his feelings," she said. "They just were what they were."
Flora was the only one who fully supported Gale, though. Mark Hall wrote, "I was definitely on Team Gale in the first book but by the end [. . . ] I like Team Peeta."
Among other respondents favoring Peeta were Tasha Jemerison and Allison Lewis.
"Peeta!" Jemerison said. "He has a different way of viewing and handling things. Sometimes we need different to balance. Plus sooo sweet!"
"Peeta, baby!" Lewis exclaimed. "Any guy who can bake bread, decorate a cake, AND kill with his bare hands? Please. Not even a comparison."
Sharon Lyn Stackpoole weighed in on behalf of her son. "My son says Team Peeta. He also says it's a complicated backstory, but Team Peeta is just good. Period."
Breanne Kiser couldn't decide -- "Team Both? Because its too hard to choose," she said -- while Jessica Whitt Exline chose neither.
"Team Haymitch?" Exline wrote. "Gale is a jerk who somewhat feels entitled to Katniss, and Peta gets way too whiney at times for me. At least with Haymitch, you know what you're getting."
