We started off with 64 iconic TV couples. Ross and Rachel. Buffy and Angel. Carrie and Big. TV giants.
And it all came down to the two most passionate TV fanbases around right now: Glee and The Vampire Diaries. Rachel and Finn. And Damon and Elena.
Thousands voted in E! Online’s Best TV Couple of All Time Tournament. And now it’s time to announce the winner!
In a super close competition (there was just a three percent divide!), The Vampire Diaries’ Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) have officially been crowned the small screen’s Best Couple of All Time!
And guess what? We just so happened to be on the CW hit’s set in Atlanta today and were able share the amazing news with Ian and Nina, as the show was celebrating its 100th episode.
Suffice to say, they are overwhelmed by the fan love.
“I mean it’s crazy!” Nina said of the win. “The Delena fans are so passionate and so enthusiastic and such rabid lovers of Damon and Elena’s chemistry and their relationship that obviously we’re incredibly flattered and excited about it. It is really awesome!”
Then she added with a laugh, “I’m a little upset about [the win], to be honest with you. Ricky and Lucy were the ultimate couple, so I feel like we stole it from them and they deserve it more. They are much more iconic. I grew up watching I Love Lucy, so I guess I’m a little biased.”
