Is One Direction hotter than The Wanted?
Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes seem to believe that they're a little bit cooler than fellow British boy band members Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, and Niall Horan - Max and his mates do keep going on about how 1D is doing "the Justin Bieber kind of thing" while they're manlier (since they swear in interviews) and more musically talented. According to Jay, his group is different from 1D because they don't have "cute little faces" that make them teen magazine cover boys.
So while Jay's group keeps arguing that there's no competition going on with One Direction, for some reason the guys obviously still feel the need to take subtle swipes at Styles and his band mates.
Both groups have become popular in the states, with 1D scoring TV appearances on iCarly and SNL. Meanwhile The Wanted have landed gigs on American Idol and The Voice, so they're certainly holding their own against 1D when it comes to getting exposure in the States.
But who cares about how the guys are doing career-wise - the real question is this: which group is hotter?
TMZ decided to try to answer that question with a poll asking readers, "Who'd you rather?" So far over 20,000 boy band fans have voted in it, and currently One Direction tops The Wanted 57 percent to 43 percent.
So why is 1D winning? After all, Max George and Siva Kaneswaran look like male models, and as much as he'd probably hate to hear it, Nathan Sykes is just as adorable as any member of 1D. Jay McGuiness has striking blue eyes and a head of hair that's just as swooshy as Harry Styles' mop, and Tom Parker can win over the ladies with his big, soulful eyes.
If you asked Max and his mates, they'd probably say that crazy teen Directioners teamed up to make sure that their favorite band came out on top on the poll - after all, fans of Max's manly group are probably too cool to care about a silly TMZ poll. Or maybe they'd do better if one of them lightened their locks to look like Niall Horan (the guys are lacking a blonde member). The guys are also missing a Larry Stylinson-style bromance for girls to obsess about.
So why do you think that 1D polled better than their rivals, and which group do you think is hotter?
