Last week, when we posted our list of the 30 cutest non-Robsten couples of 2011, a number of you spoke up for a write-in couple (which, with Russell and Katy over, we definitely have an opening there): Adam Lambert and his boyfriend of one year (and partner in crime), Finnish reality-TV vet Sauli Koskinen.
But we can’t make things THAT easy for you, Glambert fans. We thought we’d stir the pot a little more and bring the Weekly Hotness poll back from its winter hiatus. So we present to you this special couples’ edition, pitting Adam and Sauli against that other perennially adorable example of true love: Neil Patrick Harris and fiance David Burtka.
On the one hand, Adam, 29, and Sauli, 26, are undeniably gorgeous, and they look good together too. Plus their shared background in reality TV must have made for good conversation when they first hooked up.
On the other, Neil, 38, and David, 36, have the cuteness factor in their favor — especially when you include their 1-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper. They’ve also got longevity, having been together since 2004. Also, who can vote against Doogie?
But we’ll let you be the judge. Peruse the gallery and vote before the poll closes Friday at 1 p.m. ET.

The power of District 12 is strong already. Proof: After Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, had a significant early lead in our weekly Hotness poll, Hunger Games fans across the globe joined the rebellion and pushed li’l bro Liam Hemsworth to victory and beyond. Miley Cyrus‘ sweetie garnered 72 percent of the vote by the time polls closed today. (We’re guessing the Snow White and the Huntsman followers have been too distracted by that other little Kristen Stewart movie to click and refresh.)
So congrats to Liam. We’re looking forward to seeing a whole lot more of you — and not just Gale’s sadface alone in a meadow — very soon. And now that voting is over, we can all relax and be content with the fact that there is enough Hemsworth beauty to go around, and we never have to choose again. (But, Miley, you might want to hold on a little tighter.)

What’s better than a Hemsworth boy? Two, of course. But sorry, you can’t have both. We’re putting you between a rock-hard body and … another rock-hard body by making you choose. This week’s Hotness poll is a battle of the brothers. May the odds be ever in your favor.
Chris’ and Liam’s identical twinkling baby-blues and rugged Aussie look makes this decision a nail-biter. Chris’ 6’3 frame of muscle was a sight for sore eyes in his career-launching role as Thor. Yet, Liam had girls in a frenzy alongside is ex-girlfriend Miley Cyrus in The Last Song. And soon, the handsome Hemsworths will both take OMG to a new level with Liam in The Hunger Games and Chris in Snow White and the Huntsman.
Now it’s up to you to choose who’s hot versus who’s on fire. Here’s a smoking gallery for your viewing pleasure and to make that choice a little easier … just a little. Poll closes at 3 p.m. ET on Friday.

Wow, Jackson Rathbone fans. You guys are a very enthusiastic bunch. Unless you are all actually our own Ambika Muttoo, pressing refresh for the past 24 hours. Not that we in any way dispute that Jackson totally deserves his title as this week’s Hotness. We just thought it would be a tiny bit more of an even fight against his adoptive vampire bro, Kellan Lutz. But when voting closed earlier this afternoon, Jackson had won by 80 percent to Kellan’s 20.
The consolation? Kesmett fans can see more of their hero in Immortals this weekend. While Jackson fans will have to wait one more week for the release of Breaking Dawn – Part 1. Or you can browse through this photo montage of Jackson being very, very excited about your undying devotion.

I realize I am causing your heads to hurt with this one, Twilighters. Or not. I know there are the die-hard Jasper and Emmett supporters who have eyes for no one but their chosen Cullen vampire. But then there are those of us who will have a very hard time deciding between Kellan Lutz and Jackson Rathbone. But in honor of next week’s Breaking Dawn premiere, we are MAKING you choose.
I don’t normally go for the brawny types, but I might make an exception for Kells — that dimple and mischievous twinkle in his eyes gets me every time. His pre-Twilight modeling career gives him an advantage here, too — the boy knows how to pose. And have you seen pics of him in Immortals?
In the first Twilight, we’re not sure Jackson’s bleached hair did him any real favors, but Jasper has since learned the value of lowlights and really got to shine in battle in Eclipse. Outside of the Twi-verse, he’s got the whole rocker thing going for him. And with those warm hazel eyes and adorable cleft chin, he might be stealing hearts away from the muscle-loving Emmett fans.
This is no Jacob vs. Edward chose here, but it’s a test nonetheless. Flip through the pics and vote. Poll will close at 2 p.m. on Friday.

At first, Kat Dennings laughed at us when we told her she was this week’s Hotness, after beating Zooey Deschanel by 70 percent to 30 percent. We love her ’cause she’s self-deprecating like that. Then we reminded her that she wore the dress below back in May, and she agreed. She is pretty hot.

Call it ironic timing, but we’d already chosen to nominate Zooey Deschanel as one of this week’s Hotness candidates long before we heard the sad news that she’s divorcing Ben Gibbard. But on the bright side, a little ego boost is always good for a newly single girl! We’re certain this isn’t the first time Zooey’s been compared to that other object of hipster affection, Kat Dennings, but we couldn’t resist it. Not only do both ladies have that girls-want-to-be-her/guys-want-to … thing going for them, but they’ve also both made pretty awesome transitions to the small screen this fall, in The New Girl and Two Broke Girls. And they both have recently tweeted about vegetables (Zooey dissed bok choy , Kat is a fervent brussels sprouts supporter).
Zooey may have an advantage in this race, with her triple-threat as an actress, one half of She and Him, and HelloGiggles blog co-founder. But we also wonder if she’s too obvious a choice. Kat may have won just as many indie-rockers’ hearts in Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist. And she is smoking-hot in the new issue of GQ. We’re not sure how you’re ever going to be able to decide between them. Here’s a gallery to help you, though. Then vote after the jump!
Wow. I told you Andrew Garfield does well as an underdog. But not even I could have predicted that the future Mr. Peter Parker would defeat Mr. Franchise Jamie Campbell Bower in such a landslide victory!
Andrew pulled in 65 percent of the votes, easily snatching the Hotness title from the Harry Potter/Twilight Saga/Mortal Instruments star. Does Never Let Me Go have a cult following I didn’t know about? Was Bella working her super-shield to block votes for Caius? Or perhaps TheFABlife is home to a lot more comic book geeks than we’d ever imagined. I’m all for either of those explanations, and can’t wait to see more from both of these adorable Brits next year. In the meantime, Andrew would like to thank you:

This week’s Hotness is a tough matchup, for both talent and smoldering looks: Jamie Campbell Bower vs. Andrew Garfield. Frankly, we’re glad it’s up to you to decide, because we certainly couldn’t do it on our own.
In this corner, we have Jamie Campbell Bower, known to every Twilighter as Caius, to Potterheads as Gellert Grindelward and to costume drama buffs as King Arthur in Camelot and soon as the young Earl of Oxford in Anonymous. But soon enough, we may all think of him as Jace Wayland, the brooding hero of The Mortal Instruments. (No wonder our friends at NextMovie are calling him Mr. Franchise!)
The combined power of these fanbases should seem formidable, but then Andrew Garfield has shown that he thrives as the underdog. We wanted to boycott Facebook after seeing how his Social Network character Eduardo got screwed by Mark Zuckerberg. And though we can’t believe they’re making another Spider-Man movie, those expressive eyebrows alone are enough to make us say “Tobey Ma-who?” Will the fanboys and fangirls prevail to steal the Hotness crown from such a powerful vampire? Vote after the jump. (Polls close at 2 p.m. on Friday.)
It was a battle that spanned 61 countries and kept you awake and refreshing at all hours of the day and night. But now, fans of Hanson, NKOTB and Backstreet Boys, your hard work is done. By the time polls closed at 9 a.m. ET, Hanson was clearly the winner of this weekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Hotness. The count was 8,009 to 6,321, and those NKOTBSB loyalists put up a good fight, evening the tally at more than a few moments in the past three days. And we have good news for all of you: There IS enough room in this world for more than one all-grown-up boy band from the ’90s!
And at last, Hansonites, you can ice your mouse-clicking fingers and rest those wrists … right after you watch this online-exclusive video of the guys perform Ã¢â‚¬Å“MMMBopÃ¢â‚¬Â in the Big Morning Buzz Live studio and flip through a gallery of them singing their thanks to you for proving their everlasting Hotness.
