It was some vamp-on-vamp action of the sporting kind on February 2 when Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) and Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) faced off the 2013 Celebrity Beach Bowl. 

In preparation for the Super Bowl, The Vampire Diaries actors and real-life couple slipped on opposing jerseys to play each other in the star-filled football game. Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Hutcherson, Matt Bomer, Peter Facinelli, Maria Menounos, and Lil Wayne also participated in the event.

Nina was on Deion Sanders’s white team, while Ian played for Michael Strahan’s blue team. The game ended up extremely close. Gray’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams caught a pass for a two-point conversion, putting the blue team up 43 to 42.

That one point was enough to win the game, but based on the video below, Nina wasn’t too put out that Ian’s team beat hers.
