Yes folks, our roster of 64 players has been cut in half, then cut in half again, and the first of our Sweet Sixteen battles include players from True Blood, V, Doctor Who, X-Men, Beowulf, Twilight, and Underworld. And for the first time in Sexy Beast history, we’ve got lady beasts facing gentlemen beasts! So click through past the jump to vote for your favorites in a quartet of bodacious bouts, 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: Let’s have a moment of sexy silence for ‘em now!) 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 48 hours only, so support your favorites in battle, lest they be relegated to a prison where Miley Cyrus music is on repeat loop!

  • Christine

    First to vote, sweet!!

  • MCS

    That is just unfair putting Jessica Hamby against Eric Northman. They are both so attractive, who do I vote for?

    • Woot

      I know! I was so mad I had to choose!

      • UGH

        Haha. Edward is losing. Keep getting smarter, ladies.

      • Caaro

        Edward… loosing? you are so wrong jeje

    • Amanda

      Ugh, I know! What gives??

      • hope

        . Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley),
        . Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder
        . Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson
        Angel (David Boreanaz),

    • lefty

      Really? There’s no contest.

      • Irinaa

        damon and stefan salvatore are the best <3333

      • pbj

        ya this is my list 1 Damon 2 eric 3 stefan 4 edward 5 jessica

    • Bryan

      I totally agree. I mean, you gotta give it to the guy (Eric). He’s a pimp. But Jessica…even with the fangs, that girl is gorgeous. However, we haven’t seen Jessica do “sexy” in the show, have we? We’ve seen her as “romantic”. Nevertheless, she can still get it.

    • Ayn

      As unfair as it is, and I do agree, I’ve given my vote to Eric. He oozes sex appeal and well, as pretty as Jessica is, my door doesn’t swing that way. (lol) They are both hot, sexy, bitchin’ characters, but I will always be a Northman fan… I love how bad he is.

    • Kylie

      Jessica! She’s the shiz

    • priscillachristine

      Actually it’s at 49′ to 51′ so he is winning. :)

    • aves

      I know right!! That was a hard one!

    • Meeeeeeeee

      I know…I ended up having to pick Eric. He’s Eric for gods sake.

      • AbbeyAnneFacinelliMasenCullenDaliDiggoryHawkinsCrawleyCooperWinchesterKnightPattinson

        yup. i agree.

    • Flyergal

      I agree, you can’t put them together. & you cannot compare Edward Cullen Twilight to Selene Underworld!!!

  • noway

    seriously and they are both from True Blood!

  • Madd

    Poor Jessica. Who would ever win against Eric?

    • zee

      no one…ever!!!

  • tvgirl48

    It seems odd to pit men against women, but I’m hoping the Doctor can still hang in there! If we were talking about Morena Bacarin in Firefly, before she chopped off all her hair, then we’d have a race.

    • IPU_bbhhh

      You say that as if Morena Baccarin wasn’t still astoundingly beautiful. No contest, in my opinion.

      • mary ellen

        luv them both – she was also in SG1….

  • aby

    I am fully expecting Eric to be the final winner.

    • Jen


    • Shaunna


    • Kasia

      I’m worried that the title will go to a Twilight character…

      • Lynn

        Technically Eric has ALREADY defeated Edward. They did that top vampire vote thing a few months ago. Eric won fairly easily, even with Bill splitting the True Blood vote.
        I do think it’s crap that they put two TB characters against each other in this round, but you know they’ll avoid an Edward/Jacob match-up if at all possible. *rolls eyes*

  • Miss Talk

    DEAD @ “Miley the philosopher” lol

  • Eric has not, will not, and will never be attractive. I don’t understand the panty creaming over him. average face, nice body, zero sex appeal.

    • mari

      Have you forgotten that beauty is quite subjective? You may be immune to Eric Northman’s charms but others are not.

    • Jeremy

      I don’t think all that of the actor, but I can definitely see why the ladies love the character Eric. He and Sookie have sooooo much chemistry.

  • Judith

    The Tenth Doctor for the win! I adore David Tennant.

    • NikkiSue

      It’s not looking good for the good Doctor… we need his fan base to rally and bring some serious votes!

      • jaetee

        I know what you mean. But I don’t think it is a fair fight. V is on standard free network telly. Where as Doctor Who is only online, or cable, or Netflix. So he probably doesn’t have as many fans. But for me David is the one that should win. David all the way!!!

      • Mitsuki

        Actually, jaetee is wrong about that… Doctor Who has been showing on BBC America and Syfy for a while now… Since the ninth Doctor…

    • Celimene

      How is the Doctor losing? ARGH!

      • TheGame

        I Know!!! :(

      • MaryZ

        I agree, The Doctor all the way <3 and I just lost.

    • Lstat

      Is it fair to put girls and guys up together? Isn’t all it testing is how many people who are attracted to a particular sex are voting?

      • Roxy

        I don’t think so. I’m attracted by guys, but I voted for girls too when they are better looking :D

      • Lynn

        I’m a lady who likes guys and you can bet I voted for Selene over Edward. Easiest decision I made.

      • Sarah

        Save the doctor! Scatter the link to the ends of the web!!! Because we all know two hears are better than one (It’s like beating out a samba!)

      • Sarah

        Save the doctor! Scatter the link to the ends of the web!!! Because we all know two hearts are better than one (It’s like beating out a samba!)

      • IPU_bbhhh

        I heavily prefer women, but I’d vote for a man if he was more attractive.

    • jazzcatj

      I second that Judith, David Tennant ROCKS and is a very sexy beast.

  • Woot

    Glad that Edward Cullen is currently losing, by a pretty decent margin.

    • katie

      give it a few hours to be posted on the twilight twitter, and that’ll change fast

      • mari

        Why are the sparklepires pastier than the other (more kick ass) film/tv vamps??

      • darn

        I hate when Katie’s right.

    • Christine

      Selene is awesome regardless, but it makes me happy to see her dominate against my most hated literary character EVER.

      • sure

        well when this is posted on all of the twilight blogs you might as well forget about it. and seriously, kate beckingsale over robert? yeah right. I like ian and alex too though but can’t see anyone beating eddy. i personally love damon though

      • NikkiSue

        Not to take away from Kate Beckinsale, but I have a feeling we have an anti-Edward vote going on right now. Just waiting for the Twi-hard wave to swoosh in and change everything. My only hope is that they happen to love the Tenth Doctor, too (yes, a girl can dream).

      • NikkiSue

        BTW … loving the current 30% Edward / 70% Selene vote!

      • priscillachristine

        Buh-Jeezuz this is hard! Underworld is what got me into vampires. I think that I am going to vote one each so I won’t feel guilty. :)

      • Sarah

        I’m right there with Nikki Sue–rally your inner Who-ian, Twi-hards!

    • silverrose

      we can only hope that Selene can slay edward.

      • TSnowy

        sorry to break it to you guys, but Selene is losing, and Edward is making a break for it.

      • SeksiMamacita

        Just voted!! Edward-51% Selene-49%

      • Caaro

        I’ve votes Edward 67 – Selene 33

      • Caaro

        I’ve voted Edward 67 – Selene 33

      • Casey

        I think hope has been officially killed. Edward’s now winning 68% to Selene’s 32%. The other fandoms need to rally together and vote out that sparkling pansy stalker.

    • britt

      no he is not he is winning

      • britteny


  • TJ

    The full bracket shows Anna (V) losing to Number Six (BSG), 46.4% to 53.6%. Were those numbers switched or did the wrong sexy beast get sent through to the sweet 16?

    • David

      Nice catch!
      The mistake is in the bracket numbers. I voted for Anna and followed the matchup till the end of it.

  • Mia

    Savor this moment… Selene is beating Edward. My head says it won’t last, but my heart is telling me to keep hope alive for a world where pasty seventeen year olds with stalkerish tendencies don’t count as sexy!

    • pede

      Best comment EVER!

    • harriet

      Don’t count on it. The ‘Edward is God’ Twilight blogs will soon send their army to rig this contest. Eddie is #1 to even God in their blind sparkling eyes. The most obnoxious fans in history.

      • @harriet

        “Eddie is #1 to even God in their blind sparkling eyes”
        Just stupid. Seriously.
        Thanks for illustrating that the only thing more obnoxious than the fans are the detractors.

      • Affie

        It’s true. I’m a Twilight fan, but can’t stand Edward or Bella. It kind of fits that when the movies came out, they chose actors I don’t like for the roles.

        But no matter what, if it’s Underworld vs. Twilight, Underworld gets my vote everytime (Now if only Dracula or Van Helsing were up there…)

      • Affie

        But I will correct one thing.. “Eddie” isn’t number one to god.. In the fangirls’ blind sparkling eyes, Edward IS god. xD

      • priscillachristine

        Of course not. God is number 1. Nobody is even remotly close. To think or to say is just plain dumb!

      • Cadavr

        She is drop dead gorgeous! Robert Pattinson is just an ugly fail excuse for an actor.

    • SeksiMamacita

      Go Edward!

      • britteny

        GO TEAM EDWARD!!!

      • priscillachristine

        Team Edward. Team Selene.
        I’m torn between two awesome series(well they’re both great to me). :\

      • Susie

        Go edward, go to hell.

      • Cadavr

        Are you blind?! How can flat faced Robert Pattinson be more attractive then Kate Beckinsale? I’m a straight female & I’d rather get with her then that ugly fail actor.

  • Irish

    Go team Doctor Who!!!!

    • Mia

      If he doesn’t win, I’m done with this.

      • MaryZ


      • Michelle

        WORD. Ten FTW!

      • Irish

        They crushed me once already by cutting Spike so early. Don’t know if I can take it if The Doctor loses.

      • Veggie Monster

        I quit. No one makes the Doctor lose… Maybe we should just take a trip back in the TARDIS…

  • Mika

    The Doctor. Always.

    • Irish

      How is he losing????

      • MaryZ

        its fixed somehow. damn those clever Daleks.

    • Christine

      Get more gay men and straight women on this poll, pronto!

  • MaryZ

    THE DOCTOR!!!! <3 <3 <3
