As you can observe Ochman won against all the artists in a given pair regardless of whether they finished above or below Krystian in the ESC 2022.
Surprisingly enough, the fiercest ‘battle’ was not between the Eurovision 2022 winner – Kalush Orchestra from Ukraine or Sam Ryder from the UK who came second in the ESC 2022 but against WRS from Romania, who finished 18th in the ESC 2022 and here, as it turned out, has a lot of supporters and is so popular among Eurovision Fans not only in Romania. WRS scored as many as 137 votes (the number that in some of other rounds could be the winning result). The lowest number of votes was cast in the round against The Rasmus from Finland and this doesn’t necessarily have to mean a smaller amount of The Rasmus’s popularity but the fact that the voting period coincided with the Christmas time being the holiday season.
All in all, as you can see Krystian Ochman gets a lot of attention and recognition not only from his great and devoted fans from Poland and whole Europe but also from the entire world from countries like Australia, South Africa, United States, Mexico or Philippines. What’s intriguing, although some might argue that the results don’t show a representative sample in comparison to the Eurovision Song Contest public but still the numbers show how many people are determined and at the same time want to devote their time to support Ochman as some of the rounds reached as many as about six thousand members of the audience.
