He draws white snuff on people's nose and other stuff (in other areas), yet his defamatory drawings doesn't seem to turn away the millions of readers who log onto his now-famous celebrity blog. Often outing celebrities on their dirtiest secret, it seems like for America, Perez Hilton, is ours. Though we often want him to shut up, we have to admit: his twitter wars with Demi Moore and Kirstie Alley are sooo addicting.

As the diamond studs on his ears got bigger and the Ed Hardy shirts got louder, it was decided: things got a lot more obnoxious once Jon Gosselin stepped onto the scene.

Ever since this wannabe cowboy (what's with the hideous rancho hats this season?) started seducing Heidi(ous) on The Hills, MTV viewers have yet another reason to hate the music-station-that-doesn't-play-music: introducing to us a douchebag so douche-y, we can't help but tune in. With his serial killer looks and insanely dumb remarks, Spencer successfully annoys the hell out of anyone with half a brain.
