    Matching my old vamp crush against my new vamp crush. Possibly the meanest thing a vote on this site has ever done to me…

    • Tina

      I as thinking exactly the same thing. It was very hard to vote for just one of them.

      • KarlHall

        Worse… pitting two hairy beasts against each other. Belthazor vs Wolverine is very mean.

      • ani

        belthazor was not hairy….he had a red and black face and was bald.

      • ani

        hugh jackman and julian mcmahon, on the other hand, are certain both hairy beasts.

      • j

        It was tough. The hilarity and constant dancing of Damon won out for me though. If the choice had been between Damon and Angel the puppet, different story!

      • Avi

        OMG i was just thinking the thing i really had to think about tht

    • zee

      so not cool!!! u just can’t choose

      • Jade Smith

        Yep your right zee! <3

    • Ang

      Having a hard time with this one too! They are both sexy beasts but differently so…… What to do, What to do!?!?!?!?

      • Jade Smith

        Arhhhh Its so Hard isnt it Arhhhhh

    • Kate

      I know! How do you decide between Damon and Angel?

      • Beth

        Damon!!!!!!! :D

      • Amber

        Damon. Just has to be him :)

      • Laura

        DAMON. It just doesn’t get better than that!

      • lauren

        agree angel and damien.

      • hope

        yea how do u put them which one to vote damon or angel it was so hard so i went back n voted on both of them

    • alicia

      I know! Too cruel. I had to go with Angel. I’ve loved him forever.

      • ani

        same here. as much as i love damon, angel was my first.

      • LAJackie

        I went with Angel too. It wasn’t a hard decision for me.

      • Jean

        nanaisdizzy I’ve always loved Angel.He has more to give than any young man could ever think of.

      • Spikesgrl

        I, too, had to go with the old fav Angel. But only because my beloved Spike is already out of contention.

    • Amy Leigh

      As much as I love Damon, Angel will always be the first vampire I ever loved. :)

    • Simone

      Let’s think about this…Angel was sexy bad, well Angelus…we haven’t got to see much of Damon and I’m not talking about his body, I voted for Angel. EW is sooo cruel.

    • shari

      i have got to agree matching old vampire crushes with the new ones is so cold on so many levels… very sad that i had to chose

    • JennaE

      OMG, that is exactly what I was thinking, Damon against Angel, how could they!

    • Marianne

      My old vampire crush was on Moonlight with Alex O’Loughling as Mich St. John, but as of lately it is definitely Robert Pattison as Edward Cullen. What can I say they are so hot.

    • angela

      I know. They are both totally hot vamps – one old school and one new! I had to go with Angel since I’ve adored him for longer

    • spiritay42

      I know,…right?

  • MCS

    Taylor Lautner, I hope Brad Pitt crushes you. Crushes.

    • DeeDee

      I wholeheartedly second that sentiment! I still can’t believe these people didn’t vote for Alex O’Loughlin.

    • K13

      Go Brad Go!!! What is this world coming too??? Geee

    • silverrose

      cant belive im gonna say this, but can we get team edward to vote for brad pitt just to get rid of jacob

      • Beth

        Yep haha, Brad should win!

      • britteny

        ya sure dude, v jst want this wolf outta here

      • Maite

        Well my my my, I see Jacob is still wining buddy. What do you say to that. >:D

      • jessica

        no, we cannot, since Jacob is currently winning by a mile. Team edward just ain’t that powerful anymore i guess:D

    • KnC

      Oh he wont! No contest! Taylor all the way!

    • Someone

      U suck, Taylor is the best

    • mrsleezcullen

      I totally agree with you, I cannot stand him!

    • Terri

      Would that it would happen. But the little boys of twilight are shoe ins for this contest. Louis was delicious and he had the best hair ever and his near kiss of Armand made my straight female loins quiver.

    • Emily

      What is the world coming to when people class Taylor Lautner as better than Brad Pitt?!

  • mandie


    • David

      you suck.

      • jessica

        Jacob Black is always pouty and whiny. And, he can’t even be bothered to open his jaw when he talks so he SOUNDS pouty and whiny, too. UGH to Jacob Black.

      • TeamJacob

        i am going for team jacob jacob is so HOT OMG!!! :) <3

      • TeamJacob


    • mrsleezcullen

      I ABSOLUTELY hate/despise/dislike/loath/have sudden urges to kill…Jacob Black! Edward is way better!

    • mzallthewaywithjacoblack

      im so with u

  • greg

    Glad to see Selene is still in the running . . . .

  • the dude

    wait I just thought how could you include all those vampires and forget Mitchell from Being Human

    • LAJackie

      I know! He is definitely up there with the sexiest of them all.

  • Woot


    • Beth

      I love Woot haha

  • Cody

    I just realized that there is the very real possibility that Robert Pattinson could win this whole thing. Nothing would make me sadder. He is the least attractive of all 16 contestants left.

    • katie

      yeah… though I would hope otherwise, this seems to be a sure bet to me… If either twilight twerp is one of the final two, I would say they’re taking it all.

    • Casey

      So very, very true. I would rather see any of the other contestants win than Edward (or Jacob, although Taylor Lautner’s got quite the body).

    • lala44

      Edward is the one and ONLY….

      • KarlHall

        Taylor Lautner has possibly the most delicious midsection I have ever seen on a big screen.

      • jodipo

        KarlHall, you may need to see more movies. His competition, Mr.Pitt, blows TL’s body away in Fight Club just as an example. I think Mr.Lautner is quite good looking, but not the best body, and certainly not prettier or sexier than Brad.

      • Zerf

        Jodipo, too bad it’s not Brad’s character in Fight Club that’s competing. You’re not supposed to vote on the actor, you’re supposed to vote on the beast. And in this case, with those gross icy blue eyes, long hair and nails, Brad Pitt does not win, all feelings on Twilight aside.

      • britteny


      • mrsleezcullen


      • jodipo

        you gotta be kidding Zerf, the icy blue eyes and long hair is WHY he wins. He is flat out gorgeous. Taylor has got a great body, but he is nowhere near Brad Pitt. And I just pointed out a roll Brad was in for comparison when someone else said Lautner had the best midsection in film. While it is great, its not the best. I neer said we shold b voting on Pitts character in Fight Club, just that KarlHall needed to widen their movie viewing if they thought Lautner had the best abs in the biz.

    • Julia

      omg how I agree. he’s so damn eeeeew.

  • amethyst

    I hope damon beats angel because yeah angel is good looking but I don’t think he is sexy at all. Damon on the other hand is good looking and is sexy as hell. I don’t think people realize that just because you are good looking doesnt mean you are sexy

    • Casey

      Exactly! It’s like that with Spike and Angel: Angel was good looking, but Spike had the looks AND the sexy swagger.

      • Ioanna

        I loved Spike! I finished watching season 4. When Buffy kissed him pretending to be Buffy-bot…so hot…

      • Amy Leigh

        I’ll agree with Spike’s swagger but not the looks. I just don’t think he’s hot at all.

      • Jane

        @Loanna. Not to be a picky Buffy fan, but that was season 5, lol! Wait till you get to season 6!

      • Irene

        I haven’t read the books but I’ve watched the TV show and it soduns like they might be really different. At least in the first season, Elena doesn’t even really like Damon. I’m very interested to read the books and compare!

    • anne

      You’re crazy.

  • chris

    Summer Glau FTW!!
    She is such a graceful and talented actress.
    But she xas definetly a sexy beast in TSCC.
    She will win her quarter and face Edward in semi-final.

    • The Dude

      Summer Glau is stunning. One of my favorite actors.

      And Cameron is the sexiest beast I have ever seen on screen. I for one welcome our Skynet overlords.

  • Mia

    Dear Sexy Beast tournament,
    Spike it out. Lestat is out. THE TENTH DOCTOR IS CURRENTLY LOSING!!! And Brad Pitt is (as of now) getting beaten by the werewolf from Twilight. I’m done with you. Goodbye forever.

    • Sarah

      Amen! And how is Angel losing? Where are you Buffy fans? How did Spike lose in one of the opening rounds? Disappointed in all of you!!!

      • Macy

        You’ll be alright.

      • K13

        Alright??? How can anything be all right?? Spike, one of the most complex and fantastically played vampire characters in TV history- is off the list. WHY???

      • Squiggles

        I’m still reeling from the loss of Spike to MIB, too. He started off with a good 10% lead that just kept falling for 3 days. Even Losties were pondering how this was happening in the comments. I almost think there was an anti-Spike conspiracy out there subverting his ability to win. Angel clobbered MIB! Spike should have done so also.

      • Jo

        It’s because people are voting for current fandoms, so Damon will beat Angel, Cameron will beat Leeloo, Wolverine beats Cole, Jacob beats Louis. In the end, you can predict the winner of the whole thing based on the most current fandom. Pretty sad.

    • Christine

      If there were a “like” option on these comments I would like this times a million (the comment, not the fact all these people are losing)

    • Jane

      I’m still trying to figure out how Spike lost in the first round too. Screw this contest if Edward or Jacob wins. I’d much rather have Angel, Damon, or Eric beat out them. Crazy tweens.

  • Casey

    If it was Damon against Spike it would’ve been difficult for me to choose. As it is, Damon gets my vote hands down.

    • Amanda

      Word! Damon is very Spike like.,,with Spike out, I voted for Damon.

  • debadwolff


  • Wingnut

    Oh my eyes!!! The prettiness is burning my eyes!!!

    • silverrose

      no, thats just the sparkel of fake vampires.

  • CapricaEight

    NO NO NO!!!! I can’t choose between Damon and Angel…I just can’t. On the one hand, instant crush on David Boreanaz since his first appearance on-screen in Buffy, and Angel is probably my all-time favourite show.

    On the other hand….Ian Somerhalder.

    EW, you’re killing me.

    • Emily

      It killed me choosing between them!

  • Lovejames

    How in the world did James Marsters ‘Spike’ get voted off???? i haven’t seen this comp before…
