Round 3 of TV's Best Bad Boy Begins! Gossip Girl Vs. Dawson's! How I Met Your Mother Vs. House!

Welcome to Round 3 of TV’s Ultimate Bad Boy Bracket Tournament — where 16 tantalizingly naughty fellas that a gal might not want to take home to her mama will battle it out for supremacy.

Today’s bouts include Chuck Bass of Gossip Girl against Pacey Witter of Dawson’s Creek, and Barney Stinson of How I Met Your Mother against Gregory House of House.

Every day for the next several weeks, we’ll kick off a new set of matchups in a single-elimination format that will whittle our field down to one ultimate champ. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 4 voting will be open for 48 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

If you’re wondering what criteria we used to pick our players, we cast our net rather wide — including fellas who are dark and a little bit dangerous, truly good guys with naughty, maybe even promiscuous streaks, and actual evildoers who are nevertheless tough to root against. (We also put a cap of two cast members per show for the bracket, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.)

And if you’re interested in the match-ups we’ve got planned for the coming weeks, CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE ENTIRE 64-PLAYER BRACKET (then click again for a zoomed-in view) — and sign up to follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV. Now ready, set, vote!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    BTW, the sudden in flux of comments, all at the same time and supposedly adoring the same character, after 24 hours of practically no comments … that’s totally not suspicious at all.

    • What are you, the poll police? Way to suck the fun out of fun out of the bad boy competition.


    • Meg says:

      OMG! Are you seriously upset about a poll? Please get outside and have fun people. It’s a poll!!! And ,BTW,you can only vote once but, regardless, go get off the computer and stop griping about a meaningless poll. This is supposed to be fun

    • suess says:

      nooo, ur right, mr.observant, its so suspicious that some fans found out about this poll 24 hours later….i mean the fans have obviously nothing better to do than keep track of when the polls start right away.
      oh also, the fans couldn’t have commented only after chuck started leading coz they had some thing to stand on just like the haters have suddenly disappeared after he started leading!no its so suspicious! O.o

  5. Meg says:

    Oh I’m voting for my favorite Basstard – Chuck Bass!
