Happy Sunday, readers!
We’re less than one week away from Teen Choice 2016 and everyone at Celeb Secrets is super stoked to see the fashion, the performances, and most of all – the winners!
So to countdown to the ceremony, we’ve predicted who we believe will take home the award for the following television categories in Wave 2: Choice TV Villain; Choice TV: Scene Stealer; Choice TV: Breakout Star; Choice TV: Breakout Show; Choice TV: Chemistry; Choice TV: Liplock; Choice Summer TV Show; Choice Summer TV Actor; and Choice Summer TV Actress.

View the full list of Wave 2 nominees here.
Choice TV Villain (#ChoiceTVVillain): Brett Dalton, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”; Greg Germann, “Once Upon A Time”; Lea Michele, “Scream Queens”; Cameron Monaghan, “Gotham”; Janel Parrish, “Pretty Little Liars”; Teddy Sears, “The Flash”
Who We Think Will Win: If you watched Scream Queens‘ first season, then you know that Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuk created an absolutely insane and brilliant horror/comedy. I don’t know about the rest of you, but Lea Michele‘s Hester Ulrich always gave me the creeps from the get-go. Lea played the character perfectly, and in the end, she got away with quite a few murders. Because of Ryan Murphy’s name, as well as Lea Michele’s and all of the other big names on the show, I think Scream Queens drew in a lot of fans who will probably take the time to vote for Lea and ultimately give her the win. It also helps that she’s got her nice Glee fan following to support her as well.
Choice TV: Scene Stealer (#ChoiceTVSceneStealer): Misha Collins, “Supernatural”; Becky G, “Empire”; Tahj Mowry, “Baby Daddy”; Sasha Pieterse, “Pretty Little Liars”; Serayah McNeill, “Empire”; Hudson Yang, “Fresh Off The Boat”
Who We Think Will Win: Sasha Pieterse has been killing it as Alison DiLaurentis on Pretty Little Liars. Fans of the show waited years to found out what happened to Alie — to found out if she was alive — and now that she’s back, she’s been caught up in some crazy (pun intended) drama. Alison has started to grow into a character that fans can finally understand and actually root for, so I think Sasha will take this one home for portraying such an interesting character. Plus, PLL fans are hard to compete against!
Choice TV: Breakout Star (#ChoiceTVBreakoutStar): Priyanka Chopra, “Quantico”; Matthew Daddario, “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments”; Tom Ellis, “Lucifer”; Emma Ishta, “Stitchers”; Katherine McNamara, “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments”; Cam Newton, “All In With Cam Newton”
Who We Think Will Win: This is definitely one of the tougher categories of the bunch. Both Quantico and Shadowhunters started their series off with a bang. I’ve seen fans from both shows show their love and support for Priyanka Chopra, Katherine McNamara and Matthew Daddario online. If I had to choose, I’d probably pick Prinyanka Chopra, simply because she already has a massive following thanks to her Bollywood career. I think their support, on top of the support of her US fans who have been introduced to her and have grown to love her acting (and her perfect hair!), will give her the win.
Choice TV: Breakout Show (#ChoiceTVBreakoutShow): “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”; “Lucifer”; “Quantico”; “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments”; “Stitchers”; “Supergirl”
Who We Think Will Win: I’m going to have to give this win to Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments. Because it was based on a book series, the show already had a huge following before it even started. Once the show aired, I heard nothing but good things from both fans of the book and new fans of the story.
Choice TV: Chemistry (#ChoiceTVChemistry): Ashley Benson & Tyler Blackburn, “Pretty Little Liars”; Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, “Fuller House”; Kat Graham & Ian Somerhalder, “The Vampire Diaries”; Jared Padalecki & Misha Collins, “Supernatural”; Patton & Grant Gustin, “The Flash”; Eliza Taylor & Bob Morley, “The 100”
Who We Think Will Win: As someone who is a massive The 100 fan, I’m going to have to go with Eliza Taylor & Bob Morley for this one. Whether or not you shipped these two characters, you cannot deny their chemistry on screen. Plus, I have seen how intense The 100 fans can be when it comes to voting and voicing their opinions, so I think they’ll do whatever they can to get a win for these two characters.
Choice TV: Liplock (#ChoiceTVLiplock): Emily Bett Rickards & Stephen Amell, “Arrow”; Chelsea Kane & Derek Theler, “Baby Daddy”; Candice King & Paul Wesley, “The Vampire Diaries”; Jennifer Morrison & Colin O’Donoghue, “Once Upon A Time”; Candice Patton & Grant Gustin, “The Flash”; Leah Pipes & Joseph Morgan, “The Originals”
Who We Think Will Win: Candice King & Paul Wesley are two very attractive people, and when they kiss, you can’t help but hold your breathe because there’s just so much passion and intensity. I think The Vampire Diaries’ fans love them and will vote for them to win that surfboard.
Choice Summer TV Show (#ChoiceSummerTVShow): “Baby Daddy”; “Girl Meets World”; “So You Think You Can Dance”; “Teen Wolf”; “The Fosters”; “Young & Hungry”
Who We Think Will Win: As amazing as all of these shows are, I think it’ll be a toss-up between Teen Wolf and Girl Meets World. Both of these shows have a pretty nice following of fans and they’ve really started to step it up in the storytelling. Unfortunately, only one can take home the prize and I’m going to have to go with Teen Wolf.
Choice Summer TV Actor (#ChoiceSummerTVActor): Jean-Luc Bilodeau, “Baby Daddy”; David Lambert, “The Fosters”; Peyton Meyer, “Girl Meets World”; Dylan O’Brien, “Teen Wolf”; Tyler Posey, “Teen Wolf”; Gregg Sulkin, “Faking It”
Who We Think Will Win: I think fans of Teen Wolf will do their best to send Dylan O’Brien home with the surfboard for this category. His character’s future on Teen Wolf is a little uncertain right now, so fans will hopefully want to do what they can to give him a win in case he doesn’t get another chance at a nomination. It also doesn’t hurt that Dylan is incredibly talented and deserves to be recognized for his acting chops.
Choice Summer TV Actress (#ChoiceSummerTVActress): Rowan Blanchard, “Girl Meets World”; Lucy Hale, “Pretty Little Liars”; Shelley Hennig, “Teen Wolf”; Shay Mitchell, “Pretty Little Liars”; Emily Osment, “Young & Hungry”; Cierra Ramirez, “The Fosters”
Who We Think Will Win: Again, those PLL fans are hard to compete with. Both Lucy Hale and Shay Mitchell have been doing a fantastic job on the show, but I think Shay will walk away with the surfboard. She’s so active on all of her social media platforms and has so many fans that love and support her. She’s also the other half of #Emison, which fans of the show absolutely adore.
