The March Madness games have been insane! Each contestant was carefully chosen by the PLL Trendsetters and the PLL story architects and YOU have placed bets on who you think the swooniest boy in YA is! Join us each week to learn why each YA boy made the cut, and let us know in the comments if you agree or disagree.
We are now down to the final ELITE EIGHT and you will help us decide who is going on to the FINAL FOUR by voting for the swooniest boys in each category before tomorrow night!
Augustus: Physical qualities aside, Augustus’ vocabulary and speaking range were so captivating in the novel. John Green crafts his characters so uniquely and carefully, and the character of Augustus was captivated the moment he met Hazel Grace. (PLL Trendsetter Katherine)
Etienne: He’s definitely drool-worthy in looks and BRITISH on top of that. Points. But he’s also funny and caring, and he doesn’t conform to what the popular group does, thinking on his own and deciding what he believes to be the best, which gives him a deep character. (PLL Trendsetter Hannah)
Alex: I chose Alex as one of my “dream boys” because he taught Lena about love and romance. He helped Lena to overcome her fears of love and to go against the social norm, in order to be happy and to live a good life. The secret relationship between Lena and Alexi is, all in all, highly romantic, and something that I would love to have for myself. (PLL Trendsetter Caitlin)
Tobias: If I recall correctly, Tobias isn’t particularly the best looking guy, but I don’t care because he was mysterious and cool and Divergent! I really like how he respects Tris as a girl, not treating her as a fragile person but as a strong, brave girl he knows she can be. (PLL Trendsetter Katherine)
PARANORMAL PRETTY BOYS:
Jace: I absolutely adore the whole ‘bad boy’ scheme he’s got going on throughout the series and his continuous witty banter is great! Jace, above all, understands the importance of duty, which he displays multiple times in the books. It is his determination to get the job done that attracts me to him the most because it is a quality I admire and aspire to obtain. His sass, courage, and brains (not to mention his killer blonde locks and gorgeously toned body) make him PERFECT boy. (PLL Trendsetter Alexandra)
Daemon: The cruel and cold front he usually puts up is really just for show—don’t fear it. What I love most about this character is his progressive development into a caring person and his willingness to open up, even just a little, to Katy (a stranger to him). Although he hides a lot, it is only to keep everyone safe, which is usually why he keeps Katy at arms length. However, as the story line progresses, we start to see him change and suddenly he realizes that it is not just about him – but about this new girl whose changed his life, too. (PLL Trendsetter Alexandra)
Harry Potter: He will Alohomora! his way into your guarded heart.
Ron Weasley: Don’t let him fake you out: he DEFINITELY likes you. It just might take him seven years to finally kiss you. Plus with his ginger hair, you’d never lose him in a crowd.
