ARTICLE: Which houses would 'The Hunger Games' characters be sorted into at Hogwarts?

The Huffington Post recently posted this interesting article about how they would sort out some of our beloved Hunger Games characters among the 4 Hogwarts Houses in Harry Potter. Check it out and let us know if you agree with them on the comments below!

Katniss: Slytherin
Slytherin might get a bad rap, but hear us out on this one -- it's not always a bad thing. As a tribute, she's ultra-focused on survival, a classic Slytherin trait. If she were a Gryffindor, she might sacrifice herself in the Games so that another tribute could survive (the way Harry was willing to die for the good of others in the final scenes of Deathly Hallows). Instead, she's a fierce competitor with a deep instinct to survive.
Peeta: Hufflepuff
Everyone's favorite District 12 cutie is a Hufflepuff. He's kind, selfless, and cares deeply for others (including Katniss!). Even as a child, he saved Katniss and her family from starvation by giving her bread. But it's not all fun and games for Peeta; in true Hufflepuff fashion, Katniss rejects Peeta the same way that Remus rejected Tonks, a Hufflepuff.
Gale: Gryffindor
Gale has Gryffindor written all over him. He comes from a poor family, but doesn't let that get him down -- family is everything to him. While Katniss is fighting in the Games, he takes over her responsibilities to her mother and sister and asks for nothing in return. We think he's a lot like Ron Weasley, who would do anything for his family and friends.
Rue: Ravenclaw
As the smallest and youngest tribute, Rue faces devastating odds. But what she lacks in size and maturity, she makes up for with intelligence, the mark of a true Ravenclaw. She uses her extensive knowledge of plants to collect food and heal burns.

Cato: Slytherin

As a Career Tribute, Cato has trained his entire life for the Hunger Games. He's brutally strong, quick to fight, and loyal to his district. If he was a Hogwarts student, he would undoubtedly be sorted into Slytherin, where he'd be fast friends with Draco, Crabbes, and Goyle.
Cinna: Ravenclaw
Cinna is smart, driven, and creative, which makes him a Ravenclaw. He's a passionate stylist who does his job well; he creates the "girl on fire" theme for Katniss, including a black unitard representing coal that could be lit with synthetic fire, a jewel-encrusted gown to give the appearance of being engulfed in flames, and a candlelight-inspired Victor dress to symbolize innocence.
Haymitch: Gryffindor
Haymitch is a survivor of the Second Quarter Quell and the only living Hunger Games victor from District 12 before Katniss and Peeta won the 74th Hunger Games. His bravery, penchant for drinking, and mentorship of the tributes reminds us a lot of Mad-Eye Moody, an Auror and proud Gryffindor. See the resemblance?
So, do you guys agree with them? I personally have always thought that Katniss, Peeta and Haymitch would be sorted into Gryffindor. How about you guys? If you were the sorting hat, where would you sort The Hunger Games characters. Post your thoughts on the comments below!
