First let me say that Vampire Wire was delighted, honored, and humbled by the amazing response to this much needed survey of vampire hawtness. Thank you all for participating and sharing your thoughtful opinions.
Vampire Wire Laboratories & Research Centre has compiled all the votes from the Ultimate Hawtest Vampire Poll and is now proud to announce the results.
The Ultimate Hawtest Vampire is Henry Fitzroy of "Blood Ties," as played by Kyle Schmid! Kudos to Kyle for projecting vampilicious hawtness in his portrayal of a crime-solving, comic-book drawing, unrepentent blood-drinker!
The competition was fierce and Henry's win was due in no small part to anonymous fans spamming the poll. But fixing votes is a time-honored tradition and something most vampires -- except those pissy, prissy, whiny, oh-woe-is-me-I'm-undead! types -- would admire
Here is a pie-chart for you to study and commit to memory, or to remind you to have pie soon. (My favorite is apricot, but nobody makes that.)
I know it's not entirely readable, but it was the best I could do with a free graph-maker on an educational website.
I've analyzed the results using the the latest scientific methods and consulting some of the finest minds in the hawtest vampire field, including Nobel prize winning theoreticians and teenage girls. This work has yeilded valuable information, as follows.
- Despite being in a completely awful movie that didn't get huge publicity and a big budget production, Gerard Butler as Dracula in "Dracula 2000" is 1105% hawter than Tom Cruise as Lestat.
- Newcomer Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and his uber cool hawtness is preferred five-to-one over Bill Compton's (Stephen Moyer) Kentucky Fried hawtness in HBO's "True Blood."
- Spike (James Marsters) and Angel (Naked David Boreanaz) of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" are almost equally hawt. Their combines hawtness would make them number three in the polls.
- Selene (Kate Beckinsdale) in "Underworld" brings the hawtness in black pleather-clad chick form, and was voted hawter than two dozen eminently hawt male vamps, including Josef (Jason Dohring) in "Moonlight," Michael (Jason Patric) in "Lost Boys," and Dr. Carlisle Cullen (Peter Facinelli) in "Twilight."
Now the winner of the random drawing for the entire set of kick-ass Kitty Norville books by Carrie Vaughn is:
Woofers votes went to Gerraint Wynn Davies as Nicholas Knight in "Forever Knight," Alex O'Loughlin as Mick St. John in "Moonlight," and Jonathan Frid in "Dark Shadows." So, her taste runs to the classic angsty and elegant vamps. Congratulations, Woofer, and thanks to Hachette Books for donating such a fabulous prize.
Woofer, please send me an email (marta AT martaacosta DOT com) with your mailing address and I'll forward it to Hachette for your prize.
Okay, here's your Gratuitous Video of the Day.
Henry Fitzroy earns his votes.
The second place winner, Eric Northman, deserves some better videos, but I have a hard time finding them. However, I do really like this song.
