  1. Nicotine says:

    I prefer my women curvier than either of these two waifs, but I’ll give the edge to Maggie Q because she’s the better butt-kicker!

  2. ck says:

    Not the best Maggie pic. Just sayin’……

  3. Mike says:

    Should of been Lyndsy here, both of these two have too many veins showing.

  4. Johnn says:

    If it were Boomer vs. Nikita, than Boomer… but here I’ll have to go with Maggie Q

    • davey says:

      I was going to say the same thing – if it was Boomer or Athena for BSG my vote would have gone to Grace Park…however, Nikita gets my vote!

  5. Linda says:

    I’m going with Kono.

  6. Justin says:

    Both women got it goin’ on to me, but I give the edge to Maggie Q cause Nikita is such a cool, butt-kicking, stone-cold assassin.

  7. Jim S says:

    Doesn’t matter if her name is Boomer, Akani or Kono, Grace Park should win this whole thing…

  8. Liz B. says:

    Kono all the way! She’s smart, kicks ass and always knows the right thing to say.

  9. Mh says:

    Maggie FTW!!

  10. Doug says:

    Are you still doing these? This is growing tiresome.

  11. Yak says:

    I can’t stand Hawaii 5-0, but I voted for Grace Park because, well, Sharon Agathon. Why is everyone talking about Boomer? Boomer was stupid after the second season. Yeah, flawed people, yadda yadda, she still…she screwed up everything. IMHO.

    The other chick’s face is crazy long. No offense but she kinda looks like Sarah Jessica Parker.

  12. em says:

    Nikita, hands down. Maggie Q may not look as cute as Grace, but Nikita could kick Kono out of this universe. Which makes her character twice as hot.

  13. a says:

    GO KONO!! shes a total badass…

  14. TvFanatic says:

    Both of them are too skinny and have no curves…but Grace Park gets my vote!

  15. Anna says:

    I was backing Alex in the last poll, and am going with Kono this time.

  16. abc says:


  17. Dan says:

    Nikita is so much more badass bu then she is an ex-assasin whereas Kono is a cop so she has laws and regulations to stick to…I think Grace Park has my vote!

  18. Roy says:

    If you Vote 4 quality, you’re vote has to be for Maggie Q aka Nikita.

    So please y’all, vote for Maggie Q / Nikita.

  19. Josh says:

    This is just getting bad. First Brennan loses to Abbie and now Nikita is going to lose too? I love Grace(BOOMER!) but come on!

  20. CouchPotatoCop says:

    It should be noted in this discussion that Hawaii Five-0 is seen by 8 times more viewers than Nikita, as H50 is on CBS. Nikita’s ratings on the CW hover around a paltry 1.0.
    Oh, to the actually debate topic: Grace Park. Fills out a biniki much better than the Maggie.

    • Emma says:

      Really? I think they have a really similar petite frame, thin, small-hipped, body type. I think Maggie looks just as good. There’s quite a few bikini shots and a swimsuit video of her from her model days on youtube.

      • Audrey says:

        Yea I think but are actually very similar.

        Seeing that Nikita’s totally number of viewers is no match for Hawaii5o, I’m gonna say Kona will win this round. Buy my vote is for Nikita.

        • Emma says:

          True. H50 on CBS gets 10 million viewers vs. NIKITA on little CW with no promotion at 1.8 million.
          Well, Maggie Q will always be the first Asian woman to lead her own TV show. Plus, Maggie is super gorgeous and unique looking. She has tons of beautiful editorials in Bazaar and Vogue as a very successful model. I don’t know why y’all don’t think she’s crushable. She’s beautiful and extremely athletic, doing all of her own stunt work and really complex fight choreography on Nikita. I think she’s quite the combo. Plus, Nikita is a really positive, empowering role.
          There aren’t a lot of shows on TV now where a woman is THE lead character doing the bulk of the action sequences, like a superhero. That’s crushable to me-a powerful beautiful woman.

  21. Emma says:

    Did everyone know that Maggie Q turned down the role of Kono in Hawaii 5-0 for Nikita? She had dibs on both roles. Anyway, of course I’m voting for Nikita. Her lead role is way more glamorous, sexy and tough than Kono’s supporting role.

    I think Kono/Grace Kim is pretty cute, but her role is not nearly as fun or glam or butt-kicking.

    • Captain says:

      Not really surprising. Would you rather be the star of your own TV show or a bit player in an ensemble cast? Plus Nikita is just a better role/show.

    • GK says:

      I don’t think neither one of them is crushable, but Maggie kicks major ass in Mission Impossible 3 and from the promos and stuff, she looks cool in Nikita. I watch Hawaii 5-0. The first thing I thought about Kono was she needs to fill up! So, my vote goes to Maggie.

  22. Katie Hart says:

    Voted for Nikita (of course), but the final four will be Kate Beckett, Sarah Walker, Abby Sciuto, and Ziva David.

  23. Sally says:

    There is just no way Kono is more badass/crushable than Nikita. It’s so obvious that voters are thinking of Battlestar Galactica instead.

  24. Ai says:

    I vote 4 Grace Park!!! She is such a bamf!!!

  25. Op says:

    This is hard to choose…I think I will go with Kono. I like her!! Either way both ladies r both good.

  26. 00Eraser00 says:

    Damn this is a hard choice, i have absolutely no idea who to choose…

  27. CJ says:


  28. Kono all the way... says:

    ALL THE WAY KONO (grace park)
    Totally more crushable…..

    And she did some awesome ass-kicking in that last episode…

    • Captain says:

      Nikita does awesome ass kicking in EVERY episode.

      • Emma says:

        Truth. If you’re a fan of pure action, Nikita really beats H50, hands down. There is no show where the female protagonists (including Alex) act as their own stunt women and do kick-ass action. Maggie Q is beautiful and works so freaking hard at her show. Its a thrill to watch. Nikita is beautiful, crushable and shows a range in her acting skills more nuanced than Kono. They run her character through the ringer on that show.

  29. Ivy says:

    I love both Kono and Nikita, but Nikita could take down Kono with a spoon. Besides, Maggie/Nikita is my girl and so my vote is for her :)

  30. Oolalai says:

    Maggie Q turned down the role of Kono in Hawaii 5-0 for Nikita.


  31. NikitaAddiction says:

    Nikita is the best show and she can kick some ass…Nikita is the best

  32. April says:

    I love Kono forever!

  33. Captain says:

    This is hard. I love both characters and Grace Park is Canadian BUT I have to vote for Maggie Q. Nikita is such a bad ass and Maggie just owns that role.

  34. nebeng says:

    Maggie is da best and she got my vote and love

  35. ricardo says:

    ha ha Nikiiii!! forever.. Maggie Q… she is the one… love Nikita !!

  36. lisette says:

    Maggie Q FTW!!!!!!

  37. Yossie says:

    My votes for Maggie!!!!! Nikita all the way!!

  38. jessica says:

    Maggie Q always and forever! Nikita is the best show in the world! everyone vote Nikita!

  39. Right! says:

    Nikita >>>>>> Hawaii Five-0. So is Nikita >>>>> Kono

  40. nebeng says:

    Maggie is beautiful,talented kind hearted person and love her for that.

  41. Kelly says:

    Maggie Q is wayyy hotter. Can’t believe she is losing!!

  42. Alex07Sp says:

  43. JC says:

  44. pjp says:
