For 10 episodes of The Vampire Diaries, Paul Wesley has been doing battle with Ian Somerhalder.

The portrayal of Stefan and Damon Salvatore by these handsome actors has been the key to that show's early success on The CW.

But Wesley will soon have competition for hottest series star from another source, as Sean Faris debuts on the drama in early 2010.

Faris, whose previous best-known role was on the short-lived Fox show Reunion, comes aboard The Vampire Diaries in the role of a bartender named Ben. Will he suck blood, or merely suck face with female characters on the show?

Time will tell. For now, readers needs to choose between this pair of hunks...

What's the deal with hot vampires striking out with women?!?

Earlier this week, Robert Pattinson complained that he can't get a date.

Now, in an interview with Teen Vogue, Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley tells the magazine he wasn't always the most popular kid in school.

"I definitely wasn't invited to any of the cool parties," he said. "Girls didn't like me that much. I didn't even go to my prom."

What else did Wesley have to say? A few excerpts from the article:

On the success of The Vampire Diaries: "I've had cameos on some cool shows. But it's nice to now be doing something that I'm involved in from the beginning."

On interacting with the Twilight Saga cast while shooting in Vancouver: "The cast was staying at our hotel. We saw them everywhere and hung out all the time. They're actually really nice people."

On comparisons to that film franchise: "They have vampires and high school romance in common, but that's about it."

Last week, we asked readers to name the hottest pretend vampire.

From Robert Pattinson to Brad Pitt, the votes came pouring in.

However, Paul Wesley was left out of the debate, much to the consternation of fans that can't wait to tune in to The Vampire Diaries just to get a glimpse of this rising star.

Wesley hails from New Jersey, has appeared in 24 and Army Wives and looks like this:

Does he compare to Pattinson, Stephen Moyer or any of the other fake vampires out there? You tell us.

A couple months ago, we asked if Paul Wesley compared to Robert Pattinson.

Readers responded, overwhelmingly, in the negative. Many seemed aghast that we dared to compare anyone with the Twilight hunk, but it only seemed natural.

Bruised and Battered

After all, on The Vampire Diaries, Wesley is portraying a vampire with a good heart and an eye on a lovely, young, human high school student. Sound familiar?

At Comic-Con last week, aware of the inevitable comparisons, Wesley admitted that he's really no Robert Pattinson.

"I just want to create a character independent of that," Wesley told a fan that asked about similarities between he and Pattinson's roles. "Besides, I think nine out of 10 girls would throw me under a bus to get to Edward Cullen."

The crowd booed at that response. But is it accurate? You tell us!

Who makes the cuter pretend vampire?

It's time for a battle between blood suckers!

For months, Robert Pattinson has held the honor of Best Looking Fake Vampire in Hollywood. It hasn't even been close, as millions of women would claim we could even remove the words "Fake Vampire" from that title.

But the Twilight hunk might face stiff, scary competition this fall, as The Vampire Diaries premieres on The CW.

Paul Wesley, best known for guest-starring stints on 24 and Army Wives, anchors the series. He stars as the character of Stefan. How does he stack up against the man that brought Edward Cullen to life?

Who is the hotter pretend vampire?
