The Best First Kisses on TV
Criminal Minds Sneak Peek: The Team Has a Reluctant Unsub
Let it never be said that TV Guide didn’t go hard for Valentine’s Day!
Arrow‘s Olicity and Shadowhunters‘ Malec may not have taken the crown our V-Day Twitter shipping contest, but these fandoms still showed up in a big way to vote for their favorite couple. Olicity ended up coming in second with over 48,000 votes cast in dedication to Oliver and Felicity’s love. And hey, you guys just got the mother of all twists — get it? — so I think you’ll be just fine, kids. Malec fans turned out in droves too, with over 23,000 votes cast to push Malec to the semi-finals and win their ship third place!
As a reward for all of you die-hard shippers, we thought we’d give you something truly silly for Valentine’s Day. The shipping hive mind at TV Guide created some adorkable fake dating profiles for Oliver (Stephen Amell), Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.) and Alec (Matthew Daddario) on Ok Cupid because yes, we’re just as much of shipper trash as you are.

You’ll notice Oliver and Felicity have a few things in common (love of red pens and saving the day, obviously), and would you look at that, they’re a 91% match! And yeah, we may have rewatched some Olicity flashback episodes as inspiration… whatever.
Malec was admittedly harder to achieve — you’d think it would be easier for a 700+year-old warlock to join a dating site, but they have like, rules against that or something. Hardcore Malec fans will recognize some shoutouts to not only the books but also the good, old courtship days of Magnus and Alec back in Season 1!
And yes, we may have let some of the highs and lows of the Shadowhunters 3B trailer color our answers here. Can you blame us, there’s a lot to digest in that thing!
