After a few weeks of voting the results came in and Danneel placed in a very respectable and deserving 2nd place! Considering this was the first she featured and came second behind Amber Riley who also won last year, it was a great achieving feat. This is what Portrait magazine had to say:

Beauty Mark: Though she had dance and gymnastics training as a kif, it was modeling that caught Danneel’s eye. She notably modeled for Juicy Jeans and appeared in a few television commercials as well before considering acting full time. She booked her first big role on the soap Opera One Life To Live in 2003. She followed that up with short films and guest spots on several television series before landing a plum spot as troublemaker Rachel on One Tree Hill She recurred on the series for three seasons before scheduling for the show conflicted with scheduling for the film roles she was getting. The majority of her film roles were in supporting positions, until she landed the lead in a sitcom for NBC called Friends With Benefits. The series was, unfortunately, cancelled after only one season, but Danneel married fellow actor Jensen Ackles last year (he’s number one on our guys’ list), and gave birth to their first child Justice Jay this year.
Danneel is a frequent supporter of numerous charities – and not just in the donation vein. She’s volunteered with Out of Sight, and organization that raises money for ophthalmology (that would be study of the eyes) research, she’s cycled on behalf of the Heroes Project, and worked with Hats off for Cancer. When she and Jensen announced that they were going to be having a baby, they opted to ask fans not to send them gifts, as so many people wanted to. Instead, the happy couple asked their fans to make donations to Hats off to Cancer. The organization provides head wear to kids affected by cancer.”

Congratulations Danneel, you deserved every vote and here’s to coming first next year!
