Round Two: Nerd Crush Showdown

It’s time for Round Two of our Nerd Crush Showdown!

With one fell swoop, half our nerd-crushes have hit the curb. We’re one step closer to declaring the ultimate geek bait, so cast your vote to save your fave!

Round Two


Age Inappropriate

The Doctor versus Paul Rudd

So Paul Rudd may be a few years older than his boyish face would have you believe, but the Doctor is a few HUNDRED years older than his boyish face would have you believe. Is that better? Worse? You decide!

Scarlet Fever

Ron Weasley versus Joss Whedon

These red-headed lads may be as different as peanut butter and wizard peanut butter, but they share one thing in common: nerd cred. Do you like your red-heads fictional or famous?

No Nerd Crush Left Behind

Heathcliff versus Simon Lewis

Heathcliff and Simon both end up disappointed in love. Their ladies of choice scurry off to find different men. But you can save one of them from more disappointment by casting your vote!

Snarky Souls

Sherlock versus Jon Stewart

If you can’t take the heat, get out of 221B Baker Street, is a phrase we’re sure you will hear much more, now that we’ve invented it. It’s true, though. Both Jon and Sherlock have a tendency to the snide, so if you appreciate your nerd-crushes with cutting witticism, you’re in for a tough choice.

Who do you love most, nerds? Vote now! Click anywhere on the bracket to start voting. You can vote on Round Two until 11:59 a.m. ET on Tuesday, February 12. We’ll announce the bracket for Round Three at 1:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday. (You can only vote for each round once.) We’ll be announcing the winner of our Nerd Crush showdown on Valentine’s Day.


Missed Round One? See who got the axe here!

  1. Oh, Figment. Why did you have to call him “Doctor Who” in the blurb?

    Also, I just realised it was Nerd /Crush./ I don’t have a crush on any of these men. Oh, well, voting anyway.
