Robert Pattinson vs. Ian Somerhalder: A Draconian Dispute!

by at . Comments

By an overwhelming margin - when we tried to make the case that he's no longer the best looking fake vampire in Hollywood - Robert Pattinson fans let us know how they felt about the man that plays Edward Cullen.

Indeed, Paul Wesley got smoked in a poll that compared him to Pattinson.

But will Wesley's new co-star in The Vampire Diaries go down as easily?

In the new CW series, premiering this fall, Ian Somerhalder plays Damon Salvatore, the bloodsucking brother of Wesley's character, Stefan. Each of these vampires is in love with a high school student named Elena.

The setup may sound like a carbon copy of a certain popular franchise, but the books on which The Vampire Diaries are based were actually released years before Twilight. So take that, Stephenie Meyer!

And take this, Robert Pattinson? You tell us. Vote in the poll below.

anybody who thinks rob is hotter than ian needs medication for the chemical imbalance in their brain. pretty much, rob is disgusting. EDWARD, the story character, not the man rob ISNT, edward is amazing. but rob is ugly and makes me want to vomit. ian somerhalder && damon, they BOTH rock. they're BOTH ridiculously gorgeous. && i pretty much love them. (&& people who think i'm insulting twilight can go fuck themselves cause i LOVE the books. But in the movie they're all ugly && look like they sniff coke everyy dayy.) soo peace. :]

To be realistic, Ian Somerhalder is WAY better looking than Robert Pattinson, but Rob's character is better, and Rob has a je ne sais quoi that makes him unique (more approachable, more likely to find in real life than the beautiful doll that Ian is), so, I'm sure Rob will still be the choice of many. Now the poll is asking "who's hotter", short answer: IAN SOMERHALDER.

Ian any day and it's not because of any comparison to Pattinson. Pattinson does not give me wet dreams the way Ian does. :) Anna

Suzy- Perfect comment!!! It's irritating to see all the comparisons, when.... there really is no comparison. We are perfectly happy with the male God we already picked. ;)

okay the guy is nice looking, but its apples and oranges...
he is neither nicer looking, or uglier than ROB, he is simply
NOT ROB...
ITS LIKE THIS: ROB IS ABOVE AVERAGE IN ALL WAYS FOR A MAN, AND WE'RE HAPPY WITH HIM, NOT REALLY IN THE MARKET FOR A NEW VAMPIRE...
WE ARE QUITE SATIFIED WITH THE BEAUTY WE ALREADY HAVE...

I hate any reference to my name. I wish people would just completely invent a new one.
