Cute hunters, lock and load! Every Tuesday, we take two of the most achingly adorable beings on the planet and force you to make one tough call: as darling as these two critters are, you must choose a winner. Think of it as the Cute Thunderdome — two cuties enter, one cutie leaves. So, what say you? Who is the Cutie, and who is the Beast?  

Think you’re up for the challenge? We’ve got two videos for you to judge.

First up, True Blood’s Alcide (Joe Manganiello) has to help Sookie (Anna Paquin) protect Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) from the sun. We love any excuse for Alcide to strip down.

Next, Bandit, a Pembroke Welsh corgi puppy, fights an unexpected enemy: An ice cube. We guarantee a mix of “awwws” and LOLs while watch this fluffy guy work up the courage to investigate his “rival.”
