This years Best Couple winner is technically not even a couple.... but met the categories dynamics (something a specific fan base in the opening round had trouble understanding). Samantha Groves, aka Root and another member of Team Machine Sameen Shaw won the Best Couple based off the 1 kiss they shared last year in episode 411 after a lot of suggestions from Root that they should be together, which till that moment Shaw had ignored. While the deranged "couple" still havent found each other since then, the fans of the couple known as "Shoot" (reasonably named considering the duos penchant for guns & just happens to be a combination of Shaw & Root) havent stopped hoping.
In 2nd was last years super couple, the 2014 BOTVA winners Oliver Queen & Felicity Smoak "Arrow". The popularity of this couple, known as Olicity with a select part of the shows fandom is not in dispute. In 3rd was the 2012 Winners Richard Castle & Kate Beckett "Castle", known as Caskett by their fans. In 4th was Robin Hood & Regina Mills "Once Upon A Time" in their 1st ever finals in this category known as Outlaw Queen with their fandom. Clarke Griffin & Lexa The Commander "The 100" in their 1st ever finals in this category Clexa as they are known by the fans finished 5th.
6th place found the 2011 & 2013 Winners Bo Dennis & Lauren Lewis "Lost Girl" in their 5th consecutive finals. Doccubus had never finished worse than 2nd prior to this year. In 7th was Barry Allen & Iris West "The Flash" known as WestAllen by the fans. This is the 2nd finals in a row for Barry Allen, who made it last year with Felicity Smoak, while Iris West is here for the 1st time. Another "Once Upon A Time" couple in 8th as Captain Hook & Emma Swan. "Captain Swan" finished 4th last year. In 9th is the on again off again couple of Steve McGarrett & Catherine Rollins "Hawaii Five-0" down 1 spot from where McRoll finished last year. 10th was Sheldon Cooper & Amy Farrah Fowler "The Big Bang Theory" The couple known as ShAmy were finalists in 2012 & 2013, but missed last years finals.
Prince Charming & Snow White "Once Upon A Time" were back for a 3rd time. Snowing made the finals prior in 2011 and 2013. Thea Queen & Roy Harper "Arrow" made the finals for a 2nd consecutive year.
Sam Swarek & Andy McNally "Rookie Blue" known as McSwarek by the fans made the finals for the 1st time. Santana Lopez and Brittany Pierce "Glee" known as Brittana to the fans, made the finals in the shows last year of eligibility.
Voting for this award saw 4 different leaders over the 1st two days. Clexa, Caskett, Olicity and Shoot all had the lead at different times. Eventually Shoot pulled away in the final couple days. This is the 2nd award (Sexiest Actress) of these BOTVAs for Amy Acker (the actress who plays Root) and 3rd honour (2015 May Madness winner as well). This is the 1st award for Sarah Shahi (actress who plays Shaw).
