I used Random.org to come up with a number. With just 17 possibilities I certainly could have come up with a more interesting way to chose. Like printing out the comments, trapping a fly and keeping track of the most landed on entry, but I'm feeling a little lazy so the simplicity of typing in the number 18 and clicking the "generate" button won out.
The result? 2 Melissa is the winner.
Thanks all, for your entries.
