Believe it or not, a hot couple is about a lot more than two attractive people making out to a Florence + the Machine song. Sure, looks matter, but considering that the entire cast (and we mean entire) of The Vampire Diaries is easy on the eyes, there has to be something more to the show’s many relationships.

There’s the necessary chemistry, the romance, the sacrifice, the laughter, the burning desire, and of course, the dance moves. Taking into consideration more than just what the actors look like in their birthday suits, which couple would you deem to be Mystic Falls’ hottest?

There’s the king and queen of loving looks and supportive embraces: Stelena. Then there’s the king and queen of longing looks and pent up sexual tension: Delena. But don’t stop there! Could the hottest couple in town NOT involve Elena? It’s a definite possibility.

And here’s why: Car-o-line. As if she’s not hot enough on her own, she’s currently part of two tension-filled ‘ships. First up, we have the very horny and toned Forwood, compared to the more controversial but banter-filled Klaroline. And let’s not forget Elena’s other bestie, Bonnie. She’s hot and powerful, while Jeremy is hot and predatory. We’re on board with all of what’s happening between these two.

Other potential couples to consider: How about Hayley and Tyler? Could you ever get past her betrayal? What about April and Matt? Do you think they’re too sweet to be hot? Or perhaps, Matt and Rebekah? They’ve got the tension thing down, now all we need are those birthday suits. And of course, there’s the final hot option: Shane and Bonnie. Unfortch, Shane seems to be all about the business, but aren’t you sorta kinda dying to see his dance moves?

So who will it be? Which couple is the total, smokin’ hot package? Our vote: Stefan and Klaus. Bromance or not, we love it!
