I love Leighton but don't love Gossip Girl.. it bores me and after season 1, it just went down hill however I love Ian and I love TVD aswell - it just gets better and better!


Ian is flawless!! A very beautiful person inside and out. I don;t know Leighton Meester. I only know Blair and for sure she can't compare to Ian.




LEIGHTON. But of course STUPID girls that are in love with Ian are gonna vote or him. LAME...


LEIGHTON. But of coure STUPID girls that ar in love with Ian are gonna vote or him. LAME...

Watched GG till season 2 then turned into a complete trein wreck! Still love TVD more than anything! Ian is just terrific and ....i'll go with him!Actually it was never a question!


I love them both, but i'm going to vote for Ian because he's more talented then Leighton, but she's an amazing actor aswell.
