crushworthy soaps round 2 TV's Most Crushworthy soap stars, round 2: Jensen Ackles vs. James Franco and Sarah Michelle Gellar vs. Alison SweeneyThis month, we’re asking you to help us determine TV’s Ultimate Crush. We started with a field of hundreds of hotties in scads of categories — from Girls and Guys Next Door to Outcasts & Nerds. Now we’re moving on to the second round, narrowing each category down to two candidates with the most votes.

In the case of TV’s Hottest Male Soap Stars, we suspect some ballot box stuffing since “Days of Our Lives'” Eric Brady (played by “Supernatural’s” Jensen Ackles) crushed the competition with 58 percent of the votes. James Franco, who made a memorable appearance in several episodes of “General Hospital” as the mysterious Franco came in a distant second, but the two will still compete for the title (though we have a feeling we know the outcome).

When it comes to the women of daytime, things are not quite so cut and dried. Still, Sarah Michelle Gellar, who once portrayed “All My Children’s” Kendall Hart snagged more votes than her competitors. She was closely followed by Alison Sweeney, aka “Days of Our Lives'” Samantha “Sami” Gene Brady.

Who will emerge victorious? Only your votes will determine that — so cast them in this category and all of our TV’s Most Crushworthy categories before polls close on Monday, Feb. 27.
