hottestmedia.gif That’s the number of requests we’ve received from people to change or update profile pictures featured in our Hottest Media Types contest. (Go ahead and rock the vote.)

It’s easily the most head-scratching part of this contest.

Oh, and an afternoon update in the standings: As we close in on 100,000 votes in the contest, Ryan Lizza has surged since this morning and has taken the lead in the Male, Off Air category.

And, although we hate to do this, well, we do it anyway: The current last placers in each category are Fortune’s Nina Easton, CNBC/NYT’s John Harwood, HuffPo’s Nico Pitney, Rumsfeld Office’r Keith Urbahn, Glover Park Group’s Meg Little and McCain’s Melissa Shuffield (tie), and Voice of America’s Elham Sataki.

But fear not: We totally support comebacks and, besides, there’s still 122 hours of voting left.
