The Vampire Diaries has a riveting plot filled to the brim with vampires, werewolves, witches and even ghosts – but it’s not just those wonderful things keeping many fans hooked, it’s the eye candy as well. You can’t deny that you don’t love watching scenes with Damon and Stefan (particularly shirtless scenes), or scenes with the stunning and unbelievably sexy Elena. The show is packed full of hot, and EW just made it hotter. The magazine recently did a super sexy, and naked (but conveniently covered), shoot with the three stars of the show – Ian Somerhalder (Damon), Paul Wesley (Stefan) and Nina Dobrev (Elena).

These pictures make the love triangle between the two undead brothers and Elena SO much hotter – it really adds all kinds of naughtiness to my imagination. If only we could see all of that in the show. Speaking of the love triangle, executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec chatted a bit about it with EW. When they finally decided they were ready for Damon and Elena to have an actual kiss, after years of buildup, they knew that they had to do it in a way that would satisfy two avid fan bases – those who wanted Elena and Damon together and those who want Elena and Stefan together.
“It’s one of those things that you want to be able to defend,” Williamson explained to EW. “But even more importantly, you’d rather not defend it. You want it to feel real and right and natural by all the audience.” Satisfying the “shippers” (a term used to identify fans who cheer for fictional characters to have relationships), is a challenge both Williamson and Plec have faced every time they’ve tried to advance the triangle. Asks Plec: “How can we service this moment between our characters that we really want, a Damon and Elena kiss, without getting the Stefan-Elena side of the fandom to give up hope and give up on us? And vice versa, when we want Stefan and Elena to have a moment together, how can we do that and not have our Delena fans outraged?”
That definitely makes things more difficult. Who are you rooting for? Elena and Damon or Elena and Stefan? Also, what do you think of the super hot pictures? Out of those three covers, which is your favorite?
