lol. Jane, please. -__- Jensen all the way, not even a competition.


Go Jensen!! You is WINNER!!You will always be the winner for all hunters!! Jensen, We love you!! ,3


Yes, i'm jealous of him. lol! like it's the only reason the person would not choose Jensen Ackles! maybe it's so unusual to you, i don't know. but believe me, some people are not so impressed as you are. and there are reasons for that. it's just not working for me so easily.


Assisto as duas séries, mas sem duvidas o Jensen é o melhor!! Go Jensen!!


@Jane Shut up. Jensen is awesome at laughing, crying, being a badass... he's good at everything he does. Ian is good too, but i prefer Jensen.


Jensen Ackles in my opinion, does not have any competition.


@Jane - Your argument against Jensen is ridiculous and reeks of bitterness and jealousy lol. Jensen has pulled in Emmy worthy performances, he's just that awesome :P


Jensen Ackles has been deserving of recognition for his acting as Dean for years. It's criminal he'll never get an Emmy!!!!GO JENSEN!!!


Is this you? Ian? Your hate abhorrent, judgment infantile. You are stupid! Do not write nonsense!


@Jane: Lol girl, you're describing Ian Somerhalder, not Jensen Ackles. Embarrassing. Jensen has natural talent, Ian tries too hard.
GO JENSEN, you're the best and we all love you.
