You know what, I don’t know Michael Trevino, but I spend ridic numbers of hours fangirling about Tyler on this blog… so, I was excited as a mother duck watching her duckling swim for the first time when I found out he had won his very first Teen Choice Award!
The category he won is Choice TV Scene Stealer (Male), and he got a brand spanking new surfboard for his efforts, all the better to navigate his way through the sea of us swimfans!
FUN FACT: I have in fact surfed in my lifetime. In Hawaii, no less. Am I proud of this fact? You bet that I am! It doesn’t matter that this spectacular feat ended with me wiping out, spinning around five times under water (I may be exaggerating there, but it sure felt like it), getting salt water up my nose and in my mouth, plus a little taste of Hawaiian sand. No one will take those two seconds of fleeting surfing from me, dammit!
Now, for all of you Trevino fans out there who voted for him, whether because you are an actual teen or voted under the guise of being a teen (Gen, you led me down this dark and naughty road), I’m curious to know the reason…
Is it because you think he is a brilliant actor, or just looks fabulous when his character Tyler strips down to spandex when transforming?
Inquiring minds want to know!
I was also quite happy to discover that for once a Twilight movie didn’t win Choice Liplock, and instead this honour went to the alarmingly erotic (alarming because Ron/Hermione 4eva) Locket!Horcrux (TM 12_12_12) snog between Harry and Hermione.
Speaking of getting wet, if you have missed the clip of soapy, NEKKID, Damon fresh from a shower and caught in the act by Elena, you can find this tantalising season three teaser below…
Seriously, this clip was like the Vampire Diaries Holy Grail for a few days after it first aired at Comic Con 2011. Now you can re-watch it to your heart’s content!
