Things have gotten all Amazing Race-y on The Vampire Diaries lately, and in Season 4, Episode 13, “Into the Wild,” the quest for the cure takes some of our favorite characters from Mystic Falls to an island off the coast of Nova Scotia.

This island has everything from rocky beaches to dense woods, and the good cure-hunters from Virginia are toting backpacks full of gear and sleeping in tents. Which made us wonder: Which character would you want to be stranded with on this deserted island?

Sure, lots of people want to be stranded on a desert island with Damon, even a cold, desolate, Canadian one. But let’s be practical people!

Will Damon’s brand of bad-boy behavior protect you from the wilderness, or do you want Klaus-level ruthlessness on your side?

What about level-headed Elijah? Or the newly buff, deadly Jeremy?

Would Bonnie’s witchy migraines ward off dangerous animals? How about Caroline, who has the neck-snapping abilities of a vampire and the sunshine-y pep of a prom queen? That could be nice in a bleak situation.

Then again, Elena’s pathological need to help her friends could come in handy, but so could Stefan’s lethal Rippah side — assuming he could refrain from murdering you.

The list goes on! It’s a tough call, but what do you think? Who would you want to be stuck with in a desert island situation?
