Ian Somerhalder Beats Paul Wesley and Wins 2013 Teen Choice Award
It’s yet another round of Salvatore brother vs. Salvatore brother and this time, Ian Somerhalder (Damon) has walked away victorious. Both Ian and his on-screen bro,
Paul Wesley (Stefan), were nominated for Choice TV Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. But there’s only one award, and Teen Choice fans voted to give it to Ian instead of Paul.
Ian, looking smoldering hot as he took the stage in an all-black outfit, took home the coveted surfboard. His co-star — and former girlfriend, awk! — Nina Dobrev (Elena) was also at the event, but Paul did not attend the ceremony.
Honestly, Ian didn’t seem all that surprised to win, either. The Vampire Diaries hunk showed off a bit of cockiness with a pre-show tweet:
Something tells me that I'm going to see a bunch of awesome teens in just a little bit.I might even get to go surfing this evening...Maybe;)
Sure enough, he did get to take home that familiar surfboard award. Cowabunga, dude!
That said, Ian made sure to show off his charitable side, too. The 34-year-old wore a black T-shirt with the words ISF, repping his Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which seeks to have a positive impact on the planet and all its creatures.
Ian isn’t the only TVD star that won big, either. Nina walked away with the award for Choice TV Actress: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, and the show won in the category of Choice TV Show: Fantasy/Sci-Fi. Congratulations all around!
