All I can say is that with how this is going I'm hoping even more that in the next round Jensen wins over Paul - otherwise it's just going to turn into another Delena vs Stelena debate that will have nothing to do with who is the better actor. Vote Leighton! Sure Gossip Girl as a series is not as good as it once was, but remember such moments as Blair holding a disciplinary hearing because leggings aren't pants? Nobody could have pulled off her character as well as Leighton has over the years. I like Ian too, but nothing beats classic Blair :)

I would definitely pick Ian more than Leighton even if I've met her in recent shows but I can't wait for season 4. =]


How absurd to think that Ian does not work well, he is undoubtedly the best!
Besides being a great actor he is a special person who cares about the world.


wow! ok this was a really tough choice boy.


Girls, come on, let's vote for Leighton so that we can have a female in the final. Besides, imagine if Leighton and Jensen are in the's like my favorite fan fiction couple Blair and Dean.


hmm,interesting,i actualy luv both bt leigton shud win,she dservs btr,n pls ol da supernatural fans vote 4 jensen n mke hm da winner,cos he is da BEST!LUV JENSEN 4EVR!


I think Leighton Meester is perfect in any role, it is cute and sexy and Ian Somerhalder is only good in the role of Damon


Ian Somerhalder number one!!!!!!!!


These polls are probably made by idiotic drunken people tbh.
The pairs dont make sense at all lol. A drama show paired with a supernatural show?...smh.


Ian far more better choice than competitor Leighton :) My vote goes definitely for TVD star xD

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
