Law-Enforcement Hotties Round 3 Ends With Criminal Minds vs. NCIS, L&O vs. Cold Case

Round 3 of our Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Tournament comes to an end with a showdown between two CBS dreamboats, and a battle starring a couple of gone-but-hardly-forgotten procedural protagonists.

The choices in front of you may cause you to curl up in the emotional fetal position, but it’s your duty as a TV-loving citizen to vote in the polls below, then alert your friends and neighbors to do the same! As part of our single-elimination competition, only eight law-enforcing hunks will advance to the quarterfinals.

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, we’ll launch another set of face-offs that will test the strength of your respective character crushes. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 3 voting will be open for 48 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

Eventually, our battle will boil down to a finale that pits the ultimate old-school crime-fighter against the ultimate modern-day hero. (Their female counterparts will have their later this month.)

    Hotchner and Gibbs together… it’s not fair.

  2. Susie says:

    UGH I knew Hotch would go down in this one but I voted for him anyway. I just really hope Castle beats Gibbs because that is what it will all come down to.

  3. Winnie says:

    This one wasn’t hard for me, so there was no fetal position. However, the last round and some earlier ones made me cry one single tear…

  4. Renee says:

    NO!!! How am I supposed to chose between Gibbs and Hotch?

  5. Rachel says:

    SCOTTY!!!!! I really hope he keeps this lead…and Gibbs vs. Hotchner is a good matchup! Go Gibbs!

  6. Atis says:

    Hotch! Hotch! Hotch!

  7. Olive says:

    Gibbs you silver fox! This comp is so going to come down to Gibbs vs Castle.

  8. Sara says:

    Aw man how is Hotch not winning? I LOVE HIM. He’s amazing. I love Mark Harmon he is gorgeous but… Hotch is more gorgeous. <3

  9. Tracey Lane says:

    There is no one but Hotch, hands down!

  10. NoChance says:

    Easy one for me – Gibbs.
    Might get harder once this field is narrowed down because it could be Gibbs v DiNozzo and I think I’d have to put the 2 names into a hat and draw out which one to vote for.

  11. kjmorse says:

    If Gibbs wins, its gonna be Gibbs & DiNozzo!

  12. Mary says:

    How is Gibbs beating Hotch? Gibbs is cool but sexy, hell no! Its all about Hotch baby – hot and bad ass <3

  13. Katie says:

    Hot hot Hotch, no question! I love him!

  14. Sara says:

    No contest, just HAS to be Hotch(although Gibbs is pretty cool). Hotch is just WAY TOO HOT!

  15. Pam says:

    Um, you didn’t pair those up correctly. Gibbs and Hotchner take all!

  16. Alrisha says:

    Easy choice: ‘Hotch’ over Gibbs. I like NCIS but Gibbs is so caveman sometimes and cold as an iceberg. I got Hotch anytime, he seen cold, but you can see he care. Gibbs is a great character but must of the time seen dead inside.

  17. Ruthie says:

    Are you ever gonna update the bracket??

  18. Tineke says:

    Allthough I really like Gibbs: It is and always be Hotch. The coolest, smartest, best lookingguy around

  19. Chuy says:

    Gibbs vs. Hotch?! No contest, Gibbs rules!!

  20. Ashley says:

    Hotch vs. Gibbs? I knew this tournament would produce some hard decisions, and this is one of them. In the end I had to cast my vote for Hotch (I love Gibbs, but more in a father-light than a crush-light).

  21. Alana says:

    Mark Harmon is old ewwwwwww

  22. Tiffany says:

    I have adored Mark Harmon for 2 decades. That being said….Thomas Gibson all the way! C’mon Hotch fans, where are you? Stop asking Thomas for retweets and birthday wishes, and get your butts on here and vote!

  23. Cathy says:

    I love Gibbs. He is # 1. He is sooo handsome.

  24. Brendan says:

    Gotta be honest. I don’t get the massive appeal of the NCIS guys…

  25. Loreli says:

    GIBBS GIBBS GIBBS He is incredible!!! The icy stare, always calm, loyal to a fault. Unless you dig into his personal life too much. GIBBS IS THE MAN!

  26. Neeterz says:

    *gasp* How could HOTCH be LOSING! His lethal glare should mow down any competition!

  27. Tzeefje says:


  28. Liam says:

    Gibbs is just so hot…

  29. Melissa says:

    why is Gibbs on this????? i mean really this for atractive males, not just because you like a show, come on!

  30. Barb says:

    Sorry Hotch, I really like you, but I’m a Gibbs girl through and through! My vote always goes to that silver-haired fox!

  31. Anon R says:

    NCIS fans’ nightmare next round: Gibss vs DiNozzo

    • Oilandsun says:

      DiNozzo has a beautiful face but I’ve no crush on him. And… I’ll just follow what Weatherly always said: “sitting on top of Mount Sexy, there is Mark Harmon”. Couldn’t agree more.

  32. badprobiemcgee says:

    This was definitely no contest. I mean Mark Harmon is infinitely the better one of the two. I mean his personality and his eyes are what sells him. The problem is Michael Weatherly against Mark Harmon. I mean that is just an evil decision!!!!!

  33. RvE says:

    No fair pitching my two fave shows against each other – but in terms of dreaminess, Gibbs’ eyes totally do it for me! ;)

  34. rnrwidow says:

    I love Criminal Minds above all those shows. Hotch is very handsome no two ways about it but Spencer Reid knocks them all out of the running xxxxxxx

  35. Kelly Reid says:

    HOTCH! It’s not just his looks; it’s the Hotch persona as well.

  36. Bonny says:

    How about a battle between DiNozzo and Gibbs?
