The Vampire Diaries and its hotter-than-hot cast have snagged a whopping six nominations in this year’s Teen Choice Awards, and there’s gonna be some in-house competition involved as both ladies and gents from the show will face-off.

First of all, the show itself is up for Choice TV Show in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi category, and it faces fellow CW hit Supernatural and another undead phenom True Blood, as well as Once Upon a Time and Fringe.

Where the real competition comes in, though, is with the Choice TV Actor and Choice TV Actress in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi genre bids. As usual, it’s brother against brother in the male slot, with both Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) and Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) nominated for that surfboard. And it’ll be newbie vamp versus BFF witch in the female category because Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) and Kat Graham (Bonnie Bennett) are up for that prize. Who to choose? It’s like Season 3’s “big decision” all over again.

Oh, and Ian Somerhalder rounds out the Vampire Diaries-related nominations with a bid for Choice Male Hottie against Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling, Liam Hemsworth, and Robert Pattinson.
