Okay, so killing cheerleaders sounds a little morbid and like that's Sylar's job, but let's face it: TV and movie cheerleaders walk a thin line between cool and sexy and insanely annoying and bitchy.
Since it's National Cheerleading Week here in the US of A, we thought we'd have a little fun with our favorite and/or most annoying TV cheerleaders by playing a game, kill-"bonk"-marry style.
Inspired by the fact that Heroes' Claire Bennet, the source of the "Save the Cheerleader, Save the World" plotline/catch-phrase, has become one of the very most annoying cheerleader characters ever on TV (in my opinion, anyway) here's the game - and we're talking characters, here, not the lovely actresses - save the cheerleader or kill the cheerleader?
While many of these characters have renounced or grown out of their cheerleading days, they were at one point bouncy little cheerleaders. Now we want to know which of these one-time (or forever) cheerleader characters you adore, so you would save if put in a situation like that of Hiro and Peter on the good old days of Heroes, or you would kill (maybe not as brutal as Sylar-style), for being an intolerable cheerleader character.
Here's our list of popular characters who are or were cheerleaders, so copy the list (and add your own from shows we've missed), paste it in your comment, then note next to each who you'd save and who you'd kill!
Heroes - Claire Bennet
Glee - Quinn Fabray, Santana Lopez, Brittany
Friday Night Lights - Lyla Garrity
One Tree Hill - Peyton, Brooke, Haley
Vampire Diaries - Elena, Caroline
The Secret Life of The American Teenager - Grace Bowman
Smallville - Lana Lang
Dawson's Creek - Jen
10 Things I Hate About You (TV) - Bianca, Chasity
Enjoy in good fun and happy national cheerleading week!
