'Degrassi' Stars Munro Chambers, Aislinn Paul & Justin Kelly Weigh In On 'Cake V. Eclare!' Watch!

It’s time to choose: Should Clare give Eli a second chance, or move on with Jake? Pick your side & vote!

There’s a food fight brewing at Degrassi, and it’s about to get delicious. Now that Clare (Aislinn Paul) and Eli (Munro Chambers) are on the outs, she’s free to date someone else — and she’s got her eye on new-guy Jake (Justin Kelly.) I spoke with Munro, Aislinn and Justin during a recent trip to the show’s Toronto set to get their thoughts on the Cake (Clare + Jake) and Eclare (Eli + Clare) pastry battle.

“Jake has a lightness to him that’s completely different from Eli,” Aislinn explains. “Eli was always a very hard character for Clare to handle and support. … And Jake is the kind of character who doesn’t need that support.”

Justin echoes Aislinn’s words, describing Jake as “a breath of fresh air” for Clare. “He’s the light to Eli’s dark. “She needs someone who wouldn’t be that intense with her.”

“If you’re an Eclare fan, I think you’ve got to hold on and pray,” Munro adds. “But right now it’s not looking too good.”

So what do YOU think, Degrassi fans? Should Clare take a bite into “Cake,” or should she stick with the “Eclare” she’s already been snacking on? Or hey, maybe you think she should skip dessert altogether and try being single!

Haha i think its funny how everyone believes Eclare is getting back together. Lol its so obvious they’re OVER. they’re just trying to build up mystery and suspense. But pretty soon, Clare is gonna have a brand new story line. One NOT involving Eli. You’ll see.

And before everyone starts bashing the idea, just think about it. Both of them Have been going through stuff. Why the hell would you still ship Eclare and Drianca?! Because they looked cute together??! No. Bianca almost ruined Drew’s life, YES I KNOW SHE’S DIFFERENT NOW AND SHE LOVES DREW BLAH BLAH BLAH, but that doesn’t mean they just have to be together!! Relationships are based of alot more that just love. You have to have balance in relationships. And personally, im sick to death of Eclare’s drama. Were they ever even happy?? They’ve always had conflict. First it was Julia, then it was Fitz, then it was Julia again, and now its Jake. And you gotta keep in mind that Eclare is not even together at the moment! So do i ship Eclare you ask? Hell no. And to me, Cake and Krew are just boring. I wouldve rathered see Drew and Clare than Cake and Krew….its just too out of the blue. They’re throwing too many new characters in the plots all at once. Plus, ive been reading alot of Drew/Clare fanfiction and i really like it.

I vote neither….Eclare got so intense til where it got to the point where he was litterally smutherring her. I really hooe they move on from each other. I dont ship Cake either. Just cause…he’s just another KC. I ship Clare and Drew. And i kniw that isnt a popular opinion right niw but who knows? ;)

The protagonists in Degreassi NEVER end up with the first person they date, they always end up breaking up and find someone new, so I don’t think there will be any privileges to Eli and Clare. Sure their realationship is exciting, it seems like they really love each other. but I think they don’t know how to love, becuase they are still in high school. Their characters need to change, I really hope in a better way. No matter who end up with who, I just hope they will be stonger and more rational. I really hope nobody gets a bad ending. I especially intereted in the character Clare. It seems to me she is a little bit weak, sensitive and selfish. I hope she will be focus on schools and her family more than the boys. As for Eli, I already can predict he will move on and get better.

Its All About Eclare. Eli And Clare Have a Spark That Jake And Clare Don’t. Sooner Or Later Eclare Is Getting Back Together.All Those Eclare Fans,NEVER GIVE UP.KEEP THE FAITH:D On Thursday’s Episode When Clare And Eli Look At Each-other With Very Little Dialogue,It Showed So Much Out Of That Scene. There Perfect.She Could Say She Wants Him Die&I Wouldn’t Care. No Matter What Happens,ECLARE Will Stay Together.So Don’t Worry About It :D

What I’m hoping for is that Jake and Clare go on a date and imogen and Eli do too like at the same place and during the date each one tries to make each other jelous and totally forget about theyre date…Hahahahahahahahah I would love the whole “keep looking at each other” moments..then they would just open they’re eyes and see THEY BOTH ARE NOT OVER EACH OTHER! ELCARE FTW!!!

I really love eclare together sure there was times when Eli got all creepy and possessive, but I believe he really loves Clare. I just have a feeling that Imogene is going to drive Eli to the wrong path and make him get even crazier. I don’t like Claire and Jake together I feel like Jake is not going to be serious with Claire. Clare and Eli I hope get together again. As they always say opposites attract.

I’m looking forward to the Jake/Clare pairing but I won’t become invested in them like I have with past couples. There’s no point especially if they become popular because the writers will screw their fans over…they always do. No fanbase of a popular ship on Degrassi has ever gotten what they wanted even when the writers have made it look like the couple will be end game (Joey/Caitlin and Sean/Emma).

I agree with the article! i use to love eclare but he got so obsessive and was so dark, and was hard to handle at times. Although i did love how sweet he could be :) And jake was just so light and care-free! Thats EXACTLY wat she needs now! maybe she can return to eli, i mean i don’t really see anythin serious for cake, but give them a chance!

Clare and Eli do not in any way HAVE to be together. You just WANT them together. But in reality they may be “Better Off Alone” ;)

If you guys still ship Eli and Clare, then you are being too close-minded. Remember when people still shipped KC and Clare, and then Eli was in a few episodes and everyone changed their minds? Maybe you guys will change your minds this time, too. You have to give Eli & Imogen and Clare & Jake a chance. Eli and Clare are NOT as perfect a couple as everyone makes them out to be.

Clare and Eli have to be together! They are just perfect for each other and meant to be. Maybe Jake and Alli could be a couple. Whatever happens Eclare has to be together! ECLARE FOREVER!

I do like both! Cake is so cute and Eclare was starting to act like an old married couple about to go through a divorce (that made no sense). I think it’d be cute if Cake just had a fling and Imogen & Eli had a fling and Eclare both realize what they’ve been missing.
