Analysis: Oh, Canada indeed. These Canadian beauties were born just months apart but have had wildly different careers. Durance has become a star, playing Lois Lane on the never-going-to-end "Smallville", while Karpluk's career has mostly kept her north of the border. I think Karpluk is actually the better actress, but there's no denying that Durance is more... how shall I put this?... camera-friendly. That might explain why she's opened up such a large margin in the voting. Be sure to cast your vote, and check back later today for another "matchup of the day".
