    Ian plays one of the best-loved characters on TV right now, and his acting always makes me love and want to root for his character - I don't care what others say, he actually makes me empathize with his plight, whatever it may be. Not only that, but he's incredibly active in charity work and will do just about anything for his fans. how could you not vote for him?

    Lets be honest here. Ian is great looking but dude can't act. Leighton is beautiful but more important she is a great actor.
