EW's 'Sexy Beast' Contest announces it's winner! launched its ultimate Sexy Beast tournament on July 19 they wanted to take 64 of the hottest vampires, werewolves, aliens, mutants, monsters, and machines ever; pit them against one another in a good old-fashioned, single-elimination bracket tourney; see who prevailed (while indulging in a little eye-candy perusal in the process). Things got a little heated however!

In a 30-day period, and fueled by Facebook and Twitter campaigns, readers racked up more than 1.5 million votes, and whittled the field down to just two players: the Twilight saga’s Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and The Vampire Diaries‘ Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder).

Last night they announced the winner   [SPOILER ALERT winner after the cut!]

Damon Salvatore eked out a mild upset victory over Edward Cullen by a margin of 138,630 to 134,728, a difference of just 3,902 votes.  Congrats to Ian Somerhalder - though I respectfully disagree I know Amber doesn't! :)

I'm going to put a little...aren't I a stickler pet peeve complaint here. These were supposed to be about the characters. That's Rob on the cover, not Edward. And that's a much hotter Edward picture than they used for the bracket...
Jumping down from my soapbox now.

And hang on a minute...I may be in love with Damon, but I was a wuss and couldn't even vote in this one. I know that Kerry says she loves Edward more than I do, but choosing between Damon and Edward is like picking a favorite among my four children...impossible.

I love them both! However, there is such a hot sexiness about Damon. He's the bad boy. Edward is married to Bella. Damon is a free agent nursing a broken heart. swoon
