TV Fanatic Staff Selection, Tak 4: Forwood for Best Teen Couple!

at . Comments

Welcome to the latest opportunity for a TV Fanatic staff member to defend one of our Best Teen Couple nominees. If you missed previous editions, so far...

Now, can Dan Forcella convince you that Forwood is where it's at? He's gonna try...

They might get killed in the poll, and they really are the third most notable couple on their own show... but I'm here to tell you why Caroline and Tyler of The Vampire Diaries are TV's Best Teen Couple.

While everyone watching TVD has fought over who Elena belongs with, there has been one constant: Caroline Forbes is amazing! All you need to do is check in on any one of our Round Tables this season to realize how much love there is for the blonde beauty.

After plenty of time alone, getting turned into a vampire and spending a brief stint with Matty Donovan, Caroline finally found her way when Tyler Lockwood became a major part of her life. The rest is romantic, entertaining history.


These two built a bond when Tyler triggered his werewolf gene, as the newly formed vampire helped him through the sort of transition with which she is familiar. Watching Caroline care for Tyler as he turned at the first full moon was some of the most endearing stuff we have seen on TVD.

Of course, all of that time spent with Caroline caused Tyler to fall for her, and the two eventually sealed the deal in the season three premiere. Only one of the hottest scenes of the year.

But now Tyler is Klaus's first successful Hybrid, and although we haven't seen him in action for a couple of episodes, that is not something to be taken lightly. The power this couple brings to the screen makes Brangelina in Mr. and Mrs. Smith look like a couple of high school virgins.

One is a sexy blonde vampire. The other is a ripped out werewolf hybrid stud. How do you make a better pairing than that? I don't think you can, and that is why Forwood is the best teen couple on television. Go ahead and change your vote now. I'll wait here.

Poll is now closed! Here are the results:

Elena and Stefan (The Vampire Diaries)

Blair and Chuck (Gossip Girl)

Finn and Rachel (Glee)

Aria and Ezra (Pretty Little Liars)

Caroline and Tyler (The Vampire Diaries)

Blair and Dan (Gossip Girl)

I think VD pucrroeds are smart for this reason…they are airing on March 25 because that is when American Idol is going to be down to the top 12 contestants. It’s not only the Olympics they are holding off on–its competition from American Idol. Once AI goes down to their top 12, AI only airs 2 nights instead of Tues-Thurs. Once the show is down to top 12 they will only air AI on Tues and vote off ppl Wed. Since there is no competition for AI (because VD appeals to the same audience as AI, Vampire Diaries won’t see a big drop in ratings because people have nothing to watch on Thursday anymore…SMART!!


i think they are awesome together


I love Damon and Elena & Caroilne and Tyler!


Forwood FTW ....the best tv couple,teen/adult whatever they are the best tv couple i've seen after a very long time.

Twanz: but Blair and her men aren't teens. We could all get technical, your just sore your teams not doin so well.

@uncle jackass - yes everyone on staff was able to pick a couple to nominate/campaign for. Forwood is so sexy! That scene in the premiere was on fire!!!

Uncle jackass

Another example of a couple that would make the best teen couple... At the rate everyone is going all the editors are writing one nomination piece per couple (exclude those that are all for Chair).


If I was a shipper, then Caroline x Tyler would definitely be my favorite pairing on The Vampire Diaries. Every time I see these two on screen together, it's like chemicals collide! ... and I'm a guy. lol

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
