President Obama, Hollywood Lesbians Voted Most Desirable Neighbors For 2010
In 2010 more adults would like to be neighbors with the Obamas (14 percent) than second-place Sarah Palin (12 percent) and talk show host Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi (12 percent). Country music superstar Taylor Swift ranked third with 9 percent of the vote, followed by Oprah Winfrey (7 percent) and football star Tom Brady and his model wife Gisele Bundchen (3 percent).
But not all celebrities would make good neighbors. Seventeen percent of adults named Octomom the worst neighbor of 2009, followed closely by Jon and Kate Gosselin (16 percent).
Survey respondents were indecisive about whether or not professional golfer Tiger Woods or Sarah Palin would make good neighbors. Three percent of adults found Tiger to be a desirable neighbor for 2010, while only slightly more (4 percent) thought he was the worst neighbor of 2009. Last year Sarah was ranked at the top of the desirable neighbor list . While 12 percent thought her to be a desirable neighbor for 2010, 11 percent voted her as the worst neighbor of 2009.
Two controversial couples famous for capitalizing on media attention also made the worst list. One in ten (11 percent) did not want to live next to Richard and Mayumi Heene, parents of the infamous Balloon Boy in 2009. Reality TV stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt received 8 percent of the vote. Britney Spears, voted number one worst neighbor of 2008 (19 percent), received only 7 percent of the vote in 2009, ranking seventh on the “worst” list.
The survey asked more than 2,000 U.S. adults which celebrity they would most like to have as their neighbor, and who they wouldn’t want to share a fence with.
