This is pret-ty damn interesting, we have to say!
It's a useful set of information to have when you're in the business of hiring celebrities to advertise or help promote things, or to decide who you wanna cast in your next flick: a list of most liked and disliked celebrities according to the internet.
Check out the "most appealing" in other words:
White, Bullock and Smith get survey scores of 55, 52 and 49, respectively, when the average celeb can only muster 19 on a scale of 1-100. E-Poll continuously asks thousands of consumers to rank stars and icons on a seemingly endless list of attributes and then slices and dices that info based on the demographics of the respondents.
The “least-appealing” celebrity list is somewhat surprising: Spencer Pratt comes out on top, beating killer and convicted robber O.J. Simpson.
Ouch! Bummer, Spence!
But it's nice to see our secret love for
Captain Mal Nathan Fillion (pictured above) be recognized:
Biggest recent gainers in likability are skier Lindsey Vonn, Betty White (again, following her stint on Saturday Night Live), and Nathan Fillion. If you said “who?” to that last one, it’s because you don’t watch ABC’s Castle, but you would recognize him if he appeared in a commercial. That’s the sort of metric that makes him perfect as an adman.
Mel Gibson had the biggest decline in appeal following his domestic abuse/anti-semitism scandals. But pity poor Susan Boyle and Dennis Haysbert – both were big decliners following months out of the spotlight. And Hayes has been all but displaced from the AllState campaign by the newly popular Mayhem.
It makes total sense for use that Mel Gibson is on the decline. That's pretty much a no-brainer. It is shame to see SuBo on the decline, though!
Still, it's a fascinating bunch of information! We're sure people are already looking to use it for their advantage.
So what Celebs do U like to see more often — and which ones could U not care less about??
