NEWS FLASH!! Twi-hard fans are not only dedicated, they are legion. So how did Twilight’s Robert Pattinson get edged out as the “Sexiest Beast” by Vampire Diaries’ bad-boy Ian Somerhalder? I have heard that many Twi fans are totally perplexed. Actually, they are shocked.
Let me help you out with this. Don't be a hater, don't send me death threats, don't send me hate mail. I am only stating the facts, the obvious. Just work with me here.
First of all. I am a die hard Twi fan. I am the one that goes to the midnight premieres, I am the one that even waits up for the midnight DVD release of the movies. Totally a fan. I shamelessly love everything Twilight. While Robert is not the one that makes me feel weak and makes my knees buckle at the sight of him. There is no denying he is handsome. He is Romeo. He is Casanova. He makes girls scream and cry at the mention of his name. His fandom is world-wide.(SIDE NOTE-My main man is Charlie Bewley, AKA Demetri-the Volturi tracker). Ok, back to my point.
Ian is a new comer. Yes, I love Vampire Diaries. I watch it religiously, every week. I even DVR it and watch the episodes over and over. I really love the story line. Moreover, I happen to love Ian's character, Damon's, bad boy image rocks. It kicks ass.
With that said, I know Twi-hards are scratching their heads and screaming foul. I read the comments that were made by both camps and they were rude, dirty and low. Granted, there won't be a congressional investigation. I can even see a repeat of the presidential voting incident in Florida. Hanging chads. Kidding, ya'll.
EW conducted a single-elimination tournament with 64 contestants, much like the NCAA’s March Madness basketball tournament. It’s online poll began July 19, and the results were revealed Thursday (Aug. 26).
The “Beasts” vying for the title included vampires, werewolves, aliens, mutants, monsters and machines from various movies and television shows.
The finalists after more than 1.5 million votes cast came down to Rob and Ian. Other top contenders included True Blood’s Alcide (Joe Manganiello) and Twilight’s Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). In the final, the two dashing undeads were separated by a mere 3,902 votes out of about 270,000 cast. The tally was 138,630, for Damon and 134,728 votes for Edward.
The magazine reports that the voting was close; at one point only 200 votes separated the two, before the tide turned for good. Some suggest that “Maybe it was a last-minute Tweet from Somerhalder himself –”That Pattinson guy will end up kicking my butt, however thanks for taking the time, that’s really cool : )” that turned the tide, the magazine noted. Hell, maybe it was a get-out-the-vote campaign by Somerhalder’s co-star Matt Davis (Alaric). “I think he text-messaged Justin Bieber and said ‘Hey, would you please vote for my friend?’ I’m not even kidding,” Somerhalder tells EW.
So what happened Twi fans? My personal opinion is the pole was about the SEXIEST. As much as I love Rob, I can't lie, Ian is just sexier. He has more sex appeal. Way more sex appeal. Have u seen Ian with his shirt off? Yummy, totally babe material. Rob without his shirt, just not as impressive. Sorry Robstens, I'm not hating on Robert, I am just being honest.
