Just ask the combatants in our “Aliens, Machines, and Their Ilk” division, where the first and fourth seeds (BSG‘s Number Six and Star Trek‘s Spock) lost their second-round battles to scrappy, sexy underdogs (V‘s Anna and Doctor Who‘s Tenth Doctor). Today’s duels will be especially hard on fans of The Vampire Diaries and Interview With the Vampire (as characters from those franchises face off against their own kind); today’s other brackets include players from Charmed, Avatar, The Fifth Element, and Beauty and the Beast. So click through past the jump to vote for your favorites in four tempting tussles, and to get a look at lists of the 16 seeded players (and the actors who portray ‘em) in all four of our beastly divisions. (Eliminated beasts have their names crossed out: Weep for them!) Plus, you can click here to see the entire 64-player bracket (then click again on the image for a zoomed-in view). Polls are open for 60 hours only, so support your favorites in battle, lest they be forced to sit on the sidelines!

  • Tina

    I was so ready for Damon vs. Stefan to be close but I think I like this out come a hell of a lot better.

    • mary q contrary

      I knew Damon was gonna run away with it. Ian Somerhalder is hotter than Paul Wesley any day, but Damon is in a league all his own. He’s basically pure sex, served cold with a wedge of evil as a garnish. Yum.

      • Casey

        Ahaha, that is an awesome description! And so, so true. I mean, Stefan is hot, but Damon is just sex on legs. There’s no beating that.

      • StewyFan

        Damn. Nice description. Even though VD books came out first, I can’t help but think that Stefan on the TV show is trying desperately hard to mimick Edward Cullen. It is rather annoying. Damon is a breath of fresh air on that show.

      • MJ Hall

        mary q contrary I totally agree with you on that last part of your comment. He is pure sex, served cold with just a slice of evil to make ya want MORE! Damon, O Damn!

    • Jeremy

      I don’t understand this female obsession with Damon. He may be good-looking, but I don’t see a lot past that. As I guy, I find the men of “True Blood” to be much more…..well I really can’t finish that sentence without feeling the need to punch myself, so I’ll stop there.

      • Strepsi

        “Punch yourself”? I hate when straight guys pretend that they can;t tell if a guy is hot. Give it up.

        Unless “Punch myself” is a new term for “mast**bate”… in which case go right ahead.

      • M J Hall

        Jeremy, I understand the last part of your statement. I also find the men of True Blood, Particularly Lafayette and Eric to be super-studs. However, if I had had a guy like Damon Salvatore in my HS, let’s just say that I would have lost a lot of sleep and still been rejected by him in reality. Oh well. That’s Life. I just enjoy the antics of the character and it doesn’t hurt that he isn’t too hard on the eyes either. He was a model first, ya know.

    • HD

      Are people blind? Alcide is the hottest thing on TV right now! Possibly ever!

      • Tina

        Only if you are into the muscular but stupid type.

  • Brian F

    Still upset the Number Six was eliminated!

    • Dav

      That’s just wrong. Six should have easily made the final four end of story!

  • Sydney

    kiiiinda wish the Beast from Beauty and the Beast was entered as his human form, because that was wayyyy sexier

    • jrm

      No, no, no! He is, without question much more attractive as The Beast!

    • mary q contrary

      Seriously? I had the VHS as a kid, and my brother and I would fast forward, then pause and play in slow motion the part where he turned around and looked at Belle as a human for the first time. We thought he was horrifyingly, hilariously ugly, and lost our sh#t every single time we watched it. Still funny, to this day.

    • Casey

      Yeah…no. Beast is sexier as a beast, hands down. I remember not liking him in the cartoon version when he became human. He lost all his appeal.

      • Andrea

        I agree. I did not like the human version of the Beast at all. He looked like a girl. As a kid, I would shield my eyes from that part and hope that he would somehow change back into his beastly form. The hottest Disney characters in human form in my opinion were Eric from the Little Mermaid and Shang from Mulan.

      • reema

        I also think John Smith is hot but it kind of ruins it for me knowing that he is voiced by Mel Gibson, lol

      • ani

        oh yess!!! Eric and Shang were definitely the hottest ones.

  • meg

    okay, thank goodness people have enough sense to realize damon blows stefan out of the water… however, the beast and armand cannot be losing right now. i cannot fathom that.

    • Sumomo

      True, Damon is, by far, sexier. I disagree with you on the beast, but that’s just because i adore Cole, Charmed lost too much when he got out. But I agree on the Armand, people seem to be voting for Louis just because Brad Pitt played him, without noticing he’s… well Louis, just another tortured vampire, and all “i don’t want to kill people”… ugh, hate that kind.

  • gah

    shouldve had terry o’quinn’s Smokey/MIB on there. sexy sexy man.

  • Lily

    Oh thank goodness. I was SO scared Stefan might win for some inexplicable reason. No, Damon’s just the hotter brother. It’s a simple fact of life.

  • korri87

    Thank god the 10th doctor is still in!!! David Tennant is my hero.

    • Michelle

      I KNOW! I was so worried he’d loose to Spock. Which is unacceptable.

      • tvgirl48

        Yeah, Zachary Quinto is a hottie, but no one can beat the Doctor!

      • Lstat

        Maybe if they’d put Zachary in as Sylar it would’ve been closer. Either way I love them both

    • Anneka

      Long live the Doctor!

  • Sarah

    This entire contest became meaningless when Spike was crossed out.

    SPIKE NAKED VS. ANGEL NAKED? No contest. And James Marsters in Buffy and Angel was far superior in acting abilities than David’s was in that franchise (though I give him cred for improving for “Bones).

    Yah, this bracket is moot.

    • Lily

      It’s actually voted on by people just like you and me. Not everyone’s favorite can win, though I do agree that if I had things my way Spike would’ve won the whole thing. Alas, things don’t always work the way we want them to.

    • pede

      How Smokey/MIB was even listed under TV vampires is beyond me. Am I missing something about his true form? Spike is/was/will continue to be the hottest vampire EVER. And I totally agree about the acting ability, I think that’s wear Kristin Stewart learned her facial expressions, from David Boreanaz’s pained & constipated ‘brooding’ looks…

    • Tajah

      Spike should have won. Boo!

    • Jane

      Agreed. And I was so looking forward to an Angel and Spike matchup. Stupid Lost fans (and I love Lost too) deprived us of that!

    • Lori

      I agree. As much as I love Angel, Spike is the sexier vamp. Even being 20 years younger than the actor I would still love to meet him in a dark alley.

    • Tina

      i agree. spike should of won the whole thing. i mean come one just watch episode 3 in season 2 of buffy called school hard. he is irresistable. wtf???? seriously

      • Sumomo

        just watch almost any episode of season 6, after the musical, and before Xander and Anya’s wedding! If only people voting would have seen those, Spike would have won by far!

      • Tina

        yeah thats also true, just the sex scene in smashed shoulda gotten those votes.

    • Jess

      Exactly my thoughts. Lost was just a much more widely-viewed show than Buffy.

    • The Buffy Rat

      MIB should have been listed under Mutants, Monsters, and Creatures…the guy is just not a vampire, nor was he friends with vampires. I call shenanigans.

    • justjoan

      If you want to compare naked anybody to naked anybody, how the heck did Kellan Lutz get eliminated?????

      • Tina

        i know just look up his calvin klein ads. delish. edward is nothing compared to emmett, rob is nothing compared to kellan

  • Anne

    Dang it, it’s going to come down to Eric vs. Damon, isn’t it? That’ll be just cruel.

    • AaronT

      Pretty much.

    • Erin

      IMO I already think it’s cruel to pair the two Salvatore brothers against each other. That’s just antagonizing wars within fandoms. They’re both different types of hotness…

    • mary q contrary

      That’s what I’m afraid of. That and David Boreanaz making it any farther. I truly never understood the attraction. I always found him to be kind of an unappealing lug of a guy. I know I’m in the minority on that one.

      • DeeDee

        No, you are not in the minority. My daughter could never understand the attraction for David Boreanaz and neither can I. He is kind of manly. His character on Bones is certainly entertaining, but he can’t hold a candle to some of his competition in this thing when it comes to sex appeal and attraction. Alex O’Loughlin, who should have won his bracket, and Ian Somerhalder are just too hot.

      • Sumomo

        Actually, i think if, instead of Angel, they wold have put Angelus, it would have been better, i still remember how differente they were, and how, even though i disliked angel, i actually tought angelus was HOT

    • Casey

      I’m pretty sure it’ll come to that. I’ll probably go with damon if it comes down to it though. As sexy as Alex is (and he is very, very sexy), something about Damon gives him the edge. For me, at least. @ mary, Yeah I used to find him kinda attractive, and now…not quite.

  • MaryZ

    Witty, Sexy, passionate, Supermegafoxyawesomehot, and just generally fantastical Underdog FTW. Tenth Doctor all the way! <3 and we all know what he'd say to that don't we? he'd say "Well…" in that ever so massively sexy way of his :) <3 David Tennant <3

    • Lindy

      *snerk* So true. Only David Tennant can make the word “Well” that sexy, that and the “I’m so impressive” sniff. The coolest character, the most gorgeous man, and the best actor in the whole list. (and “underdog”? Only here in the States, in the UK he’d be a front runner, as he should be)

      • MaryZ

        I agree completely. there’s no way they’d be “shocked” that David Tennant won had it been a UK based magazine poll. but that’s alright, it just shows that there’s americans that love the Doctor as well. I’m just happily surprised that they put Doctor Who on here at all. it doesn’t get much recognition by the mainstream in the US. and they don’t know how much epic awesomeness they’re missing <3

    • Megan

      ^This conversation = FTW.^

      Can I tell you, the first time I ever saw David Tennant was in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and while I thought he was great, he didn’t register on the “totally sexy” scale for me. Then I got hooked into Doctor Who, and by the time he stepped out of the TARDIS in that long brown coat in The Christmas Invasion… Well, let’s just say “GUH” was the most I could gather enough brain cells to say.

      And you are totally right. The fact that Doctor Who seems to fly mostly under the radar in the US baffles me, mostly because I have yet to meet a person who has watched the show and not fallen in love with it. WHY IS THE DOCTOR NOT MORE MAINSTREAM?! Anticipation for new episodes should be as high up there as it was for LOST. Seriously America, PLEASE CATCH ON TO THIS AWESOME.

  • LeeLee

    I know I’m a little late, but what? No Taylor Kitsch (Gambit from Wolverine)? wha? wha?

    • mary q contrary

      True that! Yum squared! I would vote for Remy LeBeau over most of the guys on this list any day (excluding Eric, Damon, and whatever Scott Speedman’s name in Underworld was).

      • Sumomo

        Yes!!! so would I! except over Damon, Spike, Lestat (if it would have been from Queen of the Damned), and Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman on Underwolrd, remember? “descendent from the clan Corvinus”)

  • liver

    Spoiler, Eric will take the whole thing just narrowly beating Jacob Black who barely beats Edward. Happy news though, the Doctor will make it to the Final Four.

    • Chris

      My sources says Cameron from Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles is the winner.
      Summer Glau FTW!

  • Sarah El

    How did Number Six get cut so early!? THIS IS A CRIME.

    • Jesse


  • edubs

    i hate that damon and stefan have to go up against each other so early. regardless, if damon doesn’t win it is simply a sin. the man is pure sex!

  • Casey

    MIB/Smokey beat Spike?! Seriously?

    • Tajah

      yeah, I know. Spike should have lasted to at least the final 4.

    • Jane

      I know. Crazy right? Those people need are nuts.

      • Jane

        *Those people ARE nuts.

    • jodipo

      that was my reaction. people are just voting for their favorite characters, sexy or not. I mean, what did MiB ever do that was remotely sexy? He walked around on an island with black clothing. oh yeah, thats my idea of sexy all right *insert eyeroll here*
