Bad Boy Quarterfinals Begin: Gossip Girl's Chuck Bass Vs. How I Met Your Mother's Barney Stinson

chuck bass barney stinsonThey both hail from series that air on Monday nights, and they both fancy a dapper suit, but beyond that, you won’t find a lot of similarities between the first set of rivals to enter the ring in our TV’s Ultimate Bad Boy Bracket Tournament Quarterfinals.

Yes indeed, brace yourselves for a tough battle between Chuck Bass of Gossip Girl and Barney Stinson of How I Met Your Mother, because it’s going to be legen — wait for it, and I hope none of you are lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is — dary!

Every day for the next week, 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 (Quarterfinal 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.

And if you’re interested in the match-ups that have already finished, and those 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!

  • I was hoping the Barney and Neal would win so that the next round would be a “battle of the suits” :-)

  • Oh, great. How did Chuck win, of all people? Arg, I am not looking forward to him possibly dominating in the next round. Hopefully he doesn’t.
