Ten on Tuesday: Celebrities!

This week's Ten on Tuesday theme is least favorite celebrities. Um... that would be... pretty much all of them. I don't mind most movie stars and sports figures, but anyone who's a "celebrity" annoys me. So I tend not to pay attention.

But, in the spirit of giving it the old college try, I turned to Wikipedia and found this great page. Who knew there were online lists of celebrity Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners, polyamorists, and people with dwarfism. Isn't the internet great?

  1. Sanjaya Malakar
  2. Michael Jackson
  3. Brett Favre
  4. Rosanne Barr
  5. Gary Coleman
  6. Rush Limbaugh
  7. Dr. Laura Schlessinger
  8. Anne Coulter
  9. Spongebob
  10. George Clooney
I'm not a big fan of "least favorite" lists, but who is loved by the public that annoys the heck out of you? Take a break from your day and visit other T10 lists.

PS: No celebrity list would be complete without a mention of Hayden Christensen.

I have to agree. Thanks for stopping by and happy Tuesday!

You have some oldies on your list! Spongebob? My son loves him!

Keri said...

Hey! Thanks for stopping by. I guess maybe a few can slide, but definitely not those that you named LOL
Spongebob is on your hate list? Well, I guess he is a little weird at times. I doubt I'd let my children watch him if I had children.

Dr. Laura is rather annoying at times. And Brett Favre has been getting on my nerves lately.

JCB said...

Yours was the first list I saw Dr. Laura on. Bravo!

Glad you added the P.S. For a minute there I was worried...

Ahhh! Sanjaya! I completely forgot about him (but I guess he's included in my #10). I definitely agree with Rush and "Dr." Laura.

The only overlap we had was Michael Jackson, but I can sure appreciate the irritant value of the rest of your list.

Rush was almost on my list.

Michael Jackson is a pervert.

I played too :)

I confess I had to Google most of these! All except Michael Jackson, Roseanne Barr, Spongebob and George Clooney. I guess annoying celebrities tend to be culturally specific!

I agree that least favourite lists aren't nearly as much fun as "Best of" ones but they do make interesting reading. I see that you're not a fan of right-wing, mouthy, judgemental commentators (understandably) but what have you got against George!? Is it just that some people just get on your nerves!

I like your Tuesday lists!

Ha! Love your picks, as usual, Pete.

And yeah, I agree, the idea behind having celebrities is slack-jawed.

I picked Spongebob because while I do think the shows are mildly amusing (I've only seen part of the movie), the whole thing just annoys the hell out of me. Ed, Edd, and Eddy is worse, but I didn't think they were as big celebrities.

The Troll is in da house! Where you been, man? I'm going through withdrawal and need some "Stupid Florida Tricks" to read soon.

Jane, after I posted I thought maybe George was an incorrect pick. I had to put one wildly lusted-after male superstar that I don't understand why women fawn over him. I picked George, but then I remembered he does not seem a total airhead, and he also does some really great work in the community and uses his superstardom for purposes of good. He's like the anti-Britney. So he does annoy me, but more in a jealousy kind of way.
