Joe Goldberg or Dan Humphrey?

Warning: This post contains multiple spoilers for You and Gossip Girl.

Penn Badgley’s newest thriller series—and everyone’s favorite new binge-watch—You, highlights the instabilities and problematic personality traits of his psychopathic character, Joe Goldberg. But it isn’t the first time that he’s played a character that could be considered obsessive.

Viewers have been quick to note the similarities between Joe and the character that catapulted Badgley into fame: Gossip Girl‘s brooding lonely boy, Dan Humphrey. Both Dan and Joe are outsiders looking in, hoping to gain access to people who seem far out of their reach. They are both bibliophiles, with Dan being an author (and blogger), and Joe being a manager at a bookstore. Oh yeah, and they’re both creeps. What a coincidence!

To settle the score, we’ve compiled a list of Dan and Joe’s weirdest, most chill-inducing acts to see who takes the (creepy) cake. Cast your votes below: Which character will be crowned the Creep King? You decide. (Spoiler alert: They’re both bad.)
