On Valentine’s Day, Zap2it began our search for the TV’s Most Crushworthy of all time. We nominated our favorite TV characters and personalities in 20 categories — from silver foxes to girl-next-door types, from supernatural creatures to reality TV hosts.
After two rounds of voting, we’ve found out who the most crushworthy are in the various categories, and now it’s time for these guys and girls to go head-to-head in our final round: The Ultimate TV Crush. (Cue epic theme music here.)
Given their active online fandom, it comes as little surprise that “Supernatural” has the most nominations — the series’ heroes and villains have obviously made a major impact. In fact, Jensen Ackles is nominated twice, for his work as Dean Winchester and as “Days Of Our Lives'” Eric Brady (swoon!).
Also nominated twice is “The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev, whose two doppelganger characters — sweet and self-sacrificing Elena Gilbert and sassy, sexy Katherine Pierce — won their individual categories. (While her sometimes-love-interest Damon Salvatore couldn’t beat Castiel in the supernatural creatures category, Ian Somerhalder still made our list as Boone Carlyle from “Lost.”)
Will a potential split vote cost Nina or Jensen the win?
The “Glee” fandom has some decisions to make here, too, with Santana (Naya Rivera) and Rachel (Lea Michele) both nominated in the female category. Artie (Kevin McHale) took out all the other nerds (including “The O.C.’s” iconic Seth Cohen) for his spot in the male category.
The game is on, so get voting in both categories below. Only one vote counts per IP address when we tally the final results, so play fair and keep it classy. Voting closes Thursday, March 1 at 12 p.m. PST. Make sure and spread the word on social media to help keep your faves in the competition!
