Some serious congratulations are in order!
After weeks of tireless voting, we're happy to announce that the winner of Alpha Male Madness 2016 is...Sam Heughan!
The Outlander star seemed to have no problem beating out 63 other competitors for the title of TV's Alpha Male for the second year in a row, and managed to defeat his final rival, Arrow's Stephen Amell, with 57% of the vote.
That does not mean, however, that Amell's fans didn't put up a fantastic fight, and we saw more comments than ever about how hard it was to choose between the two handsome badasses. It was definitely a tough choice, and all the fans deserve some recognition for their efforts. Amell may not have won the title, but he didn't lose any love.
In fact, this was the nicest, most polite fight we think we've ever seen, and we're proud of all of you. Sam Heughan may have won the title, but we are all winners. To celebrate the end of another lengthy internet battle, we've collected some of your best celebratory tweets for you to gaze upon as you raise your glass of whisky in salute to Sam, to Stephen, to yourselves, and to the fact that another season of Outlander is so close we can almost taste it.
We just want to thank everyone who spent so many hours voting for Stephen in the #AlphaMaleMadness poll. We might have not won but -? Stephen Amell Daily (@AmellDaily) March 29, 2016
We made it very far and Stephen saw how much we all love and support him during this whole the process. So thank you all again.? Stephen Amell Daily (@AmellDaily) March 29, 2016
