The People Have Voted And The Winner Is ..

The time has now arrived for me to reveal the winner of "The Dating Game vs The Fangboys". After the tiring job of calculating all the votes (yep it was strenuous clicking on the Show Results link) I have to say that I wasn't too surprised at the winner. This delicious Fang Boy pretty much dominated the match from the beginning, holding the lead for the last 4 weeks. There was a few times where I thought he'd be given a run for his money and personally, I was kind of hoping for that sexy battle to the finish between him and the runner up. Before I reveal who your choice for "Perfect Date" is, let me show you the results... take it away Polldaddy..

Contestant #1  received 9.5% of the votes
Contestant #2 received  9.5% of the votes
Contestant #3 received 42.9% of the votes
Contestant #4 received 9.5% of the votes
Contestant #5 received 28.6% of the votes 

So the winner of the match with a CLEAR lead is none other than ....

The Dating Game vs the Fang Boys

Growing up in Australia we had a TV show called "Perfect Match" which I'm told is very much like the "Dating Game" here in the US. On the show there would be 3 contestants who would sit on opposite sides of a wall and the person looking for the perfect date would ask a series of questions. They wouldn't know who the contestants were and based their choice on how they liked the answers. Finally at the end there was the big reveal and the person was either excited by the person they chose or disappointed. So it got me thinking ... what would it be like to play this game with the yummy guys we find in the paranormal books we love? I've chosen the guys to come from some of my favorite (and I've heard yours as well) YA paranormal books and the only requirement is that they have fangs. This means they could be vampires, werewolves or even demons. So from a random poll of characters, these are the contestants for our own private show - Stefan (from Vampire Diaries), Dimitri (from Vampire Academy), Vance (from Of Witches And Warlocks), Sam (from Shiver) and Jacob (from Twilight Saga). Other than a brief bio, you won't know who each contestant is and at the end of the game, I'll open the voting to you. Once all the votes are in I'll do the big reveal and see which guy we'd most want to go on a date with. Sound fun? Ok let's play The Dating Game (cue the music) ...

Team Edward VS Team Jacob

This month's battle is....

Team Edward vs. Team Jacob
Studs or Duds??

I was at the bookstore today and it felt like no matter where I looked there they were - Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner aka Edward Cullen and Jacob Black. It seems as though they are everywhere .. posters, magazines, books, movies, key chains and T Shirts. I'm sure somewhere in the world their faces appear on custom made novelty toilet paper. Everywhere people are asking "So whose team are you on? Edward or Jacob? Oooh that Robert Pattinson is so dreamy..." It's really starting to weird me out so much that I'm afraid one morning I'm going to wake up in a cold sweat, having been chased by Robert Pattinson dragging a mangled werewolf behind him, screaming "Pick me. Pick me. Be on Team Edward!!" **shudder** Anyway.. as I pondered this life altering question, I realized "You know what? I don't know." Oh I have my suspicions which way I would vote but to give it honest thought, I wondered what would happen if Edward and Jacob had to duke it out here on Character Death Match... so let the games begin ....
