NCIS' Coté de Pablo Accepts TVLine's Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crush Award!

I hand-delivered de Pablo’s award to her on the NCIS set earlier this week, making clear how impressive a feat Ziva David had pulled off, besting the likes of JAG‘s Sarah ‘Mac’ MacKenzie, Criminal Minds’ JJ Jareau and Chuck‘s Sarah Walker during our bracket tournament, before ultimately triumphing — after a 72-hour see-saw bout — over fellow finalist Kate Beckett, from Castle.

Press PLAY below to hear de Pablo’s speech, learn where she’ll be keeping her trophy, and maybe (just maybe) receive a “thank you” kiss from the brunette beauty.
