    Shouldn’t MIB be in the Mutants, Monsters, and Creatures category since he is, uh, Smoke Monster?

    • Zoey

      Ha, yes, I do believe he should be in that category.

  • Linda

    Common ppl. Alcide is way hotter than Eric. Furthermore, Eric has kind of lost his luster this season. VOTE ALCIDE

    • LoveMeSomeRob

      I second that!! Alcide is clearly the hotter choice!!

      • HD

        Alcide makes my london bridge go down!

    • steph

      mmm…Alcide…cue Homer drool.

      • tigger851

        ha ha steph!!! reminds me of donut!!!!

    • Lauren

      Eric will regain his lustre…his attitude around the King of Mississippi and toward Sookie is an act.

    • missouri

      Are you out of your mind, Eric will never lose his luster. It is the writers who seem to be bending over backward to destroy the character, but Alex is such a spectacular actor he can handle any bad writing and make it work for him. Alex is also the most beautiful actor out there today, he is not a clone as most of the rest are he is totally different. So far I have seen very little acting skill from the guy who plays Alcide and I can’t tell him apart from most of the other guys they have in the movies and TV right now nothing special about him.

  • Susie

    I love Eric, but if I have to choose.
    I choose Alcide.

    • Jamie

      But Eric winning could pit him against Spike in the next round… Who WOULDN’T want to see those two in a ring together??? :)

      • katie

        that would be a hard choice, actually, for me!

      • Jamie

        Hard, yes… but I think I’d have to go with Spike… he’s been in my fantasies a looooong time, and deserves at least a vote from me…. sigh…

      • Sarah

        People, Spike’s losing! So, go vote for him!!! It would be an Angel v. Spike showdown in the next round!!!

  • Jane

    Now, this is one vampire and werewolf debate I can get into. But, I have to choose Eric. Yes, Alcide is hot, but I just find Eric sexy in a mysterious way. And he can wear a grey suit or blue sweater and still be one sexy beast! Keeps you wanting more.

    • shelia

      I so agree with you Jane. Alcide is Fine ass hell but Eric is Sexy there’s a difference!!!Eric all day.

  • Gina

    Sexy is a lot about attitude and confidence. I easily pick Eric. Alcide has a nice body, but not much personality.

    • lori

      Agree. Without a doubt, ERIC!!

  • Zoey

    Kellan Lutz does not look sexy in that picture, but I’ll vote anyone to kick out the sparkling pansy he’s up against.

    • hooiskellie

      Kellan sparkles in the movie too.

      • Yum!

        LMAO!! XD

      • R/E/F

        hahaha!!!lol!!!!!!! love your comment!!! lol

      • jenna


      • StewyFan

        ROFLMAO. You would think the Twilight haters would do some homework.

      • Zoey

        I know he sparkles, asshat. But he’s slightly less pansy than Edward.

      • L

        Why does everyone think this is so funny? It’s not.

    • Lisa Simpson

      All I have to go on is that picture, and he looks really ugly.

      • VAS

        Google pics of Kellen then you will understand his hotness. That pic does him no justice.

      • StewyFan

        Actually, I love Rob, but I agree with VAS. Kellan Lutz is way hotter than that picture shows.

    • Lauren

      Twilight haters make yet another fail…

    • NSNLover

      Edward is a freaking sparkly pansy and Emmett is way better but Jasper is my favorite but of course I vote for Emmett. VOTE EMMETT!

    • Jen40

      If you want to see Kellan in a whole new light, go to youtube and watch him do push ups! I really never noticed him until I saw that and now he beats out LOTS of others on these lists.

    • hooiskellie

      i wasn’t trying to insult you, so there’s no need to get defensive and call me names. the way you worded your comment made it seem like the sparkling was a factor in your decision to choose kellan. i was just pointing out that they both play sparkly vampires.

  • team emmett

    of course kellan lutz is hotter!!
    i mean look at him hes like a million times hotter !!

  • Alyssa

    AH! Eric against Alcide! Such a hard choice! I think I have to go with Alcide, but I really hate choosing! I was hoping they were going to pit the True Blood hotties against those pansie-ass Twilight boys. Show them who the real vampires and werewolves are.

    • Missy

      LMAO… Would love to see Eric vs. Emmett! Eric would rip him up!

  • Kallie

    Futurama’s Leela is in the wrong category. Anyone who’s watched the series knows she’s no alien. I would understand why a one-eyed gal would end up in the alien category though, if a fitting category was lacking. However, ‘Mutants’ is staring us right in the face. Why isn’t ms. Leela there?

  • jenna

    ROB! next…

  • mab

    how is anna from v hotter than number 6 from battlestar? tell me! tricia helfer is gorgeous!!!

  • Kate

    Who cares about Edward or Emmett?! Jasper all the way!! He made that movie tolerable. Jackson Rathbone is far sexier than those two.

    • Karate Pants

      And Riley’s hotter than all of them. I didn’t mean that. I pick Robward. But Riley/Xavier Samuel should have been in the mix!

      • StewyFan

        WTF is Xavier? He needs to be on here somewhere. And so does Jasper.

    • Danielle

      I prefer Rob AND Jackson, lol. I’d let both bite me :)

  • alicia

    They need to update the bracket so we can see who is advancing from round 1!

  • Tina

    emmett baby!!

  • StewyFan

    Eric and Edward FTW!!!
