Whatta Man Monday ~ Dawson’s Creek Edition

So my streak of picking the losing guy is still going strong…

Last week Jamie Oliver lost to Bobby Flay in the Chef Edition…although I might say the photos were skewed to a Bobby victory…*ahem, Kristan….

BUT the voting did get totally wrecked with the number of Tyler Florence nominations…really ladies?? Tyler Florence???  I really do NOT have the pulse on what the makings of a hottie are.


But..BUT..this week I know I have it locked down.  And I am pretty certain that Kristan I are finally in agreement as well..so we’ll leave the voting up to you.

Please, no “write-in” votes for Mr. Dawson (Mitch Leary)… I don’t think I could stand it.


So here we go.  Whatta Man Monday, the Dawson’s Creek Edition.

Dawson vs. Pacey

aka James Van Der Beek vs Joshua Jackson

Let’s take a look at them back in the day…

Both are cute.

I will not be discussing the Van Der Beek’s forehead today.  We all see it and acknowledge it…moving on.


Who did you want to end up with Joey?

But since they left the Creek, they grew up.

And now they do adult things, like holding coffee cups and wearing Henleys…

And there is nothing more grown up than black and white smoldering…right?

And honestly, facial hair and suiting up is so not Pacey or Dawson.

But it strangely works.

They have both gone on to star in other successful tv shows…  Pacey fights the supernatural in Fringe and Dawson has to deal with trusting the”B” in Apartment 23

But won’t they always kinda be Pacey and Dawson?

Again, we are not talking about the forehead.

So were you a Dawson or a Pacey girl?

    Pacey, Pacey, Pacey!!! I was SO happy that he and Joey ended up together in the end. Dawson always whined too much for me.

    Well, I’ll be the first to buck the trend. I was ALWAYS a Dawson girl. And today? Whew. He aged WELL. Love me some JVDB. He is literally the only reason I watch “Don’t trust the B in Apartment 23″. It’s certainly not that Kristen Ritter chick, who is the same “character” in everything she does.

    Since the days of Mighty Ducks I have adored Joshua Jackson so Pacey gets my vote. Dawson just has too much face.

    Pacey. I really loved Pacey in the Andi relationship vs the Joey relationship. My mom says Pacey, too.

    amy b. says:

    Pacey…hands down has my vote. Loved watching him and Joey together.

    Kerri M says:

    PACEY ALL THE WAY!!!! The only reason i watch Fringe is because he in on there.

    Mandy Kirk says:

    I have to go with Pacey. My husband watches fringe and whenever he refers to the character he plays in fringe, he always calls him Pacey too, and he didn’t even watch Dawson’s Creek. So he will always be know as Pacey to me!

    Danielle B says:

    No contest – Pacey, without a doubt!

    Crystal says:

    No Dawson or Pacey for me(never watched the show), but I do like Joshua Jackson. Fringe is AWESOME!

  21. 21

    Man, I almost feel bad that Dawson is getting SPANKED in this. His forehead will console him. I vote for Pacey!

  22. 22
    veronica says:

    Now or then, my vote is the same – Pacey. Hands Down.

    Jena says:

    I heart Pacey so much!! Dawson just doesn’t compare, but I will admit that JVDB has aged pretty well!

    Miranda says:

    I know I’m a week late on this one, but I have to put it in for Pacey – just to seal the deal! He and Joey had much better chemistry and I always had a crush on JJ! I think I danced around the room when they revealed that Pacey was the one she was with at the end.


  1. [...] week, Pacey beat Dawson by a landslide.  Can’t say I’m surprised…Dawson was always a bit too [...]
