Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! You're gonna lose! Lose! Lose! A miffed Maureen McCormick on The Brady Bunch, 1972.

Here's Maureen McCormick as Marcia Brady at the height of her miniskirt-enabled powers. Though she may have been every teenage boy's crush in 1972, on this particular episode of The Brady Bunch, "Greg's Triangle," she doesn't come out on top. See, her adopted brother Greg is to cast the deciding vote in the selection of head cheerleader (wait, why does Greg get to vote on-- oh, never mind), and he's torn between his sis and his girlfriend-du-episode, Jennifer. In the end, Greg does the somewhat-right thing and chooses neither of them, instead giving the top job to Pat, who is played by Rita Wilson in her first TV role. Jennifer, predictably, dumps Greg after the vote, but in a surprise twist, the normally self-centered Marcia praises her brother for his decision.
