Mentalist and NCIS: LA Gals Battle, Chuck and Burn Notice Babes Duke It Out in 'Cop Crushes'!

We’ve reached the midway point in the Round 2 matchups of our Ultimate Female Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament, and we’ve got a battle between two of CBS’ hottest procedural characters, and a second showdown in which only one butt-kicking agent type will come out alive.

Alias and Covert Affairs Hotties Face Off, Plus NCIS Vs. JAG in ‘Law-Enforcement Crushes’

To be more specific, we’ve got NCIS: LA‘s Kensi Blye battling The Mentalist‘s Grace Van Pelt, and Chuck‘s Sarah Walker trying to outlast Burn Notice‘ Fiona Glenanne.

And, of course, in the single-elimination world of the TVLine Thunderdome, two crime-fighters will enter, but only one will leave!

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, in fact, we’ll launch another set of bouts that will test the strength of your character allegiances. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 2 voting will be open for 72 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

(Oh, and in case you’re wondering/fretting, we put a cap of two cast members per show, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.)

  1. John says:

    Van Pelt is much hotter!

  2. opus says:

    Sarah Walker for the win!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Liz says:

    just checked the bracket. in what world does Ziva David lose to Sarah “Mac” Mackenzie from JAG?

  4. Dimi says:

    Kensi Blye all the way! She’s totally awesome.

  5. Chris says:

    SARAH WALKER. No further explanation necessary.

  6. Bob says:

    I will never ever vote against sarah walker, she is so beautiful

  7. DL says:

    Need a better picture of Kensi! Go Kensi!

  8. Darklady65 says:

    Hate admitting this but Sarah Walker is hotter than Fiona and that’s cause I don’t even care for the show Chuck tried it but nah man it sucks (only MY opinion)

  9. Ray says:

    Sarah Walker without a doubt!

  10. Mindy says:

    I don’t understand these polls, I have decided. Fiona isn’t a cop. She was a terrorist, and she is a gun dealer/smuggler. How does this qualify as law enforcement?

    • wordsmith says:

      Law-enforcement is a bit of a misleading title – they should have called it something more like “crime-fighting crushes” or something like that – then the inclusion of civilians like Fiona or Bones would make more sense.

      • NoChance says:

        In the guy’s round they had Castle as a Crime Fighter and he’s a writer.

        • wordsmith says:

          A writer who helps to solve crimes – hence a crime fighter. If he just wrote about the crimes, then I’d say you’re right, but his role is much more active than that.

    • 2shy says:

      Well, she does more good than harm. Every episode shows her and the crew helping out an innocent person. So, on a technicality she counts.

  11. Kensi all the way says:

    Kensi all the way

  12. anna says:

    Sarah Walker. :) Yvonne has been and will always be my idol!

  13. wordsmith says:

    Interesting – looks like we’ve got our first really close race in Kensi/Van Pelt. I’ve been pretty torn on some of the previous match-ups, but the results have mostly been landslides.

  14. JustJeanette says:

    Kensi all the way. I find Van Pelt actually a bit wimpy…

  15. JustJeanette says:

    Fiona rocks, explodes, knives and otherwise causes mayhem… What’s not to crush?

    • Emgee says:

      Agreed. As far as I’m concerned, Fiona is the most crushable lady on TV. And I refuse to vote for Sarah Walker when she somehow wins this because she does NOT deserve to outlast Fiona.

      • PJM says:

        You obviously didn’t see the Burn Notice pilot with her horrible Irish accent. (and she’s British!)

        Not to mention, she’s 80 pounds soaking wet. Yvonne makes athletic look uber-hot.

        Sarah Walker FTW!

        • Ruthie says:

          Just because she’s thin is no reason to hate her, it’s not her fault. To me, she doesn’t look skeletal, she’s just a small person. Which makes it all the cooler when she handles such huge guns…

  16. Marianne says:

    Sarah Walker-Bartowski FTW!

  17. icegirl says:

    Kensi is awesome on every level! How is she losing?

  18. kea says:

    SARAH WALKER-Bartowski!!!!!!!!! Ultimate Kick-ass ninja spy turned into Chuck’s Loving wife.

  19. Ashley says:

    Kensi and Fi, no question.

  20. Samantha says:


  21. GK says:

    Sarah Walker, awesome kickass chick and Grace Van Pelt!

  22. Audrey says:

    Sarah Walker!

    @Slezak : When are we going to see an updated bracket? :)

  23. tiffany says:

    Sarah all the way

  24. sandee says:

    Both Sarah (Mac) and Ziva are Bellisario babes (Jag & NCIS) though Kensie is also a Bellisario babe (NCIS-LA)

    • Blix says:

      Kensi is a “Bellisario babe” in the loosest sense, since DPB was ousted long before NCIS:LA got to the page. She’s a “Brennan Babe,” I suppose you’d say… and she’s fantastic. Which is odd, as Brennan is absolute CRAP at female characters, but Kensi kicks all kinds of @$$.

  25. Emgee says:

    Sarah Walker hotter than Fiona? I call BS.

  26. Justin says:

    First one was easy, Kensi. However, I could go either way between Sarah Walker and Fiona Glenanne, making it a much tougher choice.

  27. JL says:

    I just think that Ziva is the cutest, hottest and awesomest :)

  28. King says:

    Grace Van Pelt!!!

  29. brenna says:

    this was definitely easy, i love the mentalist – but kensi blye will always own my heart. as for the second vote – sarah walker, without a doubt.

  30. Andrew says:

    Can only be one vote… Got to be Sarah Walker. No contest at all.

  31. lexi says:

    ok that kensi pic is way off
    is tvline doing this on purpose
    kensi all the way!

    • DL says:

      Seriously! Kensi is gorgeous! Why do that have to use that weird picture? They’re just making all the random people who don’t watch either show vote for Van Pelt! I call foul!

    • Blix says:

      Too true! Daniela Ruah is absolutely beautiful, but that photo is horrible! Come on, tvline!

  32. Amadeu says:

    Kensi all the way. But that picture… :/ she’s beautiful. come on, vote for her!

  33. Katy says:

    KENSI and SARAH!!! My fave two, except for SIDNEY!! How oh how is Kensi loosing??? My BF will be DEVESTATED!!!!!

  34. Thib says:

    Chuck : best show ever

    Yvonne Strahovski : most beautiful woman on Earth

  35. Michael says:

    Especially a season 2 Strahovski!

  36. mayhem says:

    hm are they actually gonna update the “64-players bracket”?

    • davey says:

      Good question! Why bother with the brackets at all if you’re just gonna update it even after the rounds have begun. Who won some of the previous rounds anyway? If it’s too time consuming just forget about it then…

  37. Svenja says:

    Kensi… ;)

  38. e. says:

    With loving respect to Fiona, Sarah Walker is the stuff that makes 10 year old boys realize girls aren’t as yucky as they once seemed.

  39. Cindy says:

    Kensi has my vote! Besides working with all those great looking guys, she’s one tough woman

  40. NoChance says:

    Hey everyone – play fair and don’t create bots to vote for you. Do it the nice way and vote when you’re able to click for yourself. Kind of cheapens the victory if you cheat.

  41. John says:

    The amount of cheating these kind of polls attract can be pretty ridiculous :)

  42. Lyzz says:

    That is not at all a good picture of Daniela Ruah. Van Pelt is pretty, but Kensi is goooorgeous.

  43. Rach says:

    i’m totally straight but Kensi vs. Grace is the hardest one so far…i love them both as characters so much!!!

  44. Ariel says:

    Totally wanting Van Pelt to win.

  45. Blix says:

    Kensi all the way… she is kick-@$$ ninja-chick done RIGHT!

  46. John says:

    Oh, great, the Kensi multivoters have turned it around! Congratulations – you are very mature!

    • NCISDar says:

      How so? Everyone has the same opportunity to vote. And you can’t do bot voting on this poll so no one has an unfair advantage. Not following your logic.

      • John says:

        During the last 24 hours everytime I checked the results, the percentage for Kensi had improved, bit by bit, from 48 to now almost 54 percent. fair polls stay proportional!

    • Amadeu says:

      oh, and how do you know people are voting many times? can you care to explain it?

      ps- daniela ruah has Portugal with her too, and she’s beautiful (as Van pelt too, but… kensi it’s kensi)

  47. kytivafan says:

    Keeping it in the NCIS family and voting for Kensi!

  48. NoChance says:

    Grace is the pretty girl you take home to meet your parents to hide the fact that you’re dating the smoking hot Kensi.

  49. Steve says:

    Sarah Walker could kick Fiona’s a$$ and look darn good doing it too!

    Sarah Walker FTW
