Click here to see the full bracket, that is if you don’t get distracted by the photos of our two finalists: Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) of TV’s The Vampire Diaries and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) of the big-screen Twilight series. Our final poll has been open for some 65 hours, and after 250,000 votes, the virile vampires remain locked in a statistical dead heat — the closest match-up we’ve seen in the entire Sexy Beast extravaganza that’s been built on the blood, sweat, and general hotness of creatures including Star Trek‘s Seven of Nine, X-Men‘s Wolverine, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles‘ Cameron, True Blood‘s Eric Northman, and even Ms. Pac-Man and Doctor Who.

So do your pop-cultural civic duty and vote in our poll below! As things tend to do when you’re dealing with vampires, we expect this bout to get bloody! [UPDATE, Friday, August 20, 12:05 a.m. ET: Voting in EW.com’s Sexy Beast bracket tournament is officially closed. Please visit EW.com on Thursday, August 26, or pick up a copy of that week’s Entertainment Weekly magazine at your local newsstand, to find out who took home the title: Twilight‘s Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) or The Vampire Diaries‘ Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder). Thanks for your time and participation: If you cast a vote in our humble tourney, you’ll always be a Sexy Beast to us!
