Jennifer Eight. These are deeply unsexy pop-culture phenomena involving the number eight. But on the flip side, we present to you the quarterfinals of EW.com’s Sexy Beast single-elimination bracket game. We’re confident in saying that never before has the world seen an octet this undeniably attractive. Yes, folks, we’ve got three vampires and two mutants, plus an alien, a werewolf, and a machine left to battle it out for the ultimate title. And your votes will determine the winner.

Today, we’re going to the polls for the first half of the quarterfinal bracket, where a pair of X-Men hotties will duke it out, and a True Blood sensation will face off against a Vampire Diaries antihero. So click through past the jump to vote for your favorites, and to get a look at lists of the 16 seeded players (and the actors who portray ’em) in all four of our beastly divisions. (Eliminated beasts have their names crossed out… because two beasts enter, one beast leaves!) Plus, you can click here to see the entire 64-player bracket (then click again on the image for a zoomed-in view). Polls are open for 48 hours only, so support your favorites in battle, because we’re so close, and yet so far, from the finish line!
