They’ve vied for Katniss’s heart and divided loyal fans into brutal, warring factions. We’re here to settle the score between these two Hunger Games hunks. And our choice is definitive. No disagreement allowed or we will be forced to turn this society into a totalitarian regime based on stratifying the classes and oppressing the masses. And it will be all your fault!
WARNING: Spoilers tread here!
Peeta vs. Gale… BEGIN!
If we’re stacking “learn to love him” Peeta up against “daily tryst in the woods, but he’s…um… my cousin?” Gale, we’ve got no contest. Sorry, Peeta. That’s the way the fresh-baked cookie crumbles.
Grand Gestures: Peeta
Peeta remembers tiny details from Katniss’s childhood and is so desperate to get noticed by her, he is happy to enter a battlefield in which he will most likely be slaughtered for the entertainment of others. It would be hella creepy if it wasn’t so absofrickinlutely adorable.
Better Meal-Maker: Gale
Peeta’s snack-fest would be carbs, carbs, and more carbs. Gale would be able to mix up a nice meal with some hand-shot squirrel and scavenged salad. A fighting girl needs her protein.
Battle Royale: Peeta
This might be a scandalous call, and I’m sure crap will be given, but Peeta lived through all of the challenges that the arena, the Capitol, and Suzanne Collins could throw at him. You live through a battle-to-the-death once? Luck. You live through a battle-to-the-death twice? You’ve got something special, kid.
Better Babysitter: Peeta
When all it takes to win is to not KILL your crush’s sibling, the bar has been set pretty low. Still, point to Peeta.
So with three points, Peeta takes the cake! (See what we did there…?) Who do you want to see duke it out next? Tell us in the comments!
