 Overrated Celebrities
There are so many overrated celebrities or so-called celebrities; it's hard to narrow the list down to just 10. If you want a good idea of who's overrated, check out the cast from just about any season of Dancing With the Stars. Or celebrity mug shots. Some of the celebrities on this list might have had actual talent or a marketable skill at one time in their lives. Then, fate, the law, or a higher power intervened and turned them into overrated fluff. Others never had any talent at all and have no hope of ever becoming talented. For whatever reason, the importance of all of these celebrities is highly exaggerated, most of all, by themselves.
1.  

Kate Gosselin

Kate Gosselin
Perhaps the most overrated celebrity of them all, Kate Gosselin is famous for having lots of babies, yelling at her husband and kids, and allowing the breakdown of her marriage to be filmed for reality TV. And for that awful haircut, of course. We'll admit that we were all kind of sickly intrigued back in the early days of Discovery TV's “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” when we got to see how the excess skin Kate accrued while carrying all those babies was going to be removed. But after that, Kate (and Jon) started to wear on us. Her grating voice and the acerbic tone she used with just about everyone, kids and husband alike, made some of us root for her husband during their divorce (and root for the demise of their show, which had become uncomfortable to watch). Now Kate's a single mom, footloose and fancy free, and we're still forced to watch her antics, most recently on television's “Dancing with The Stars.” Will we ever be rid of this woman?
2.  

Zac Efron

Zac Efron
Unless you have a daughter anywhere from preschool to puberty age, you've probably never heard of Zac Efron. Don't feel bad. You're not missing much. This young actor got his start on the Disney Channel in their popular but painful “High School Musical” movies. Neither his acting nor his singing has earned him the title of celebrity, but his popularity among young girls has. Even little girls as young as four are swooning over his clear blue eyes and razor-cut, highlighted hair. Once he gets about 10 years on him, you can bet his appeal will wane. One can only hope.
3.  

Steve-O

Steve-O
Who the heck is Steve-O, you might ask, and what qualifies him as a celebrity? If you are thinking that, you're not alone. Steve-O, otherwise known as Stephen Glover, is a daredevil performer known for his MTV television series, the aptly-titled “Jackass.” Here's another overrated celebrity who was once part of the cast of “Dancing With the Stars.” Maybe they should change the name of that show to “Dancing With the Wannabes” or “Dancing with the Has-Beens.” Steve-O doesn't deserve the tag “celebrity,” any more than that kid who you see outside your window riding on his hands on his skateboard down the street.
4.  

Lindsey Lohan

Lindsey Lohan
You can't have an overrated celebrity list without including Lindsey Lohan. She's been in the media so much, for so long, that the general public forgets what, if any, her original talent was. Once upon a time, Lohan was a promising young actress and singer. Then she discovered drugs and alcohol, and it all went downhill from there. We were forced to watch as she went from car accidents to DUIs to rehab. Then we had to learn of her crazy, quarreling parents who seemed to love the negative press their daughter was receiving, as it turned them into minor “celebrities” as well. After witnessing the pair who produced Lohan, it's not hard to see why she turned out the way she did. Unfortunately for her, her antics have turned her into an overrated celebrity, when at one time she could have been a bona-fide celebrity.
5.  

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton has long been known as the queen of overrated celebrities. Now it seems almost silly to include her on such a list. It's as if it's already understood how overrated she is. What has she really ever done in her life to be called a celebrity? She's a “socialite,” whatever that means, an heiress, and has taken stabs at all sorts of “careers” where one needs talent: modeling (she wasn't bad at it), acting (pretty terrible), and singing (truly horrible). Hilton needs to stick to what she knows best: acting like a shallow young woman who has lots of money and little brains.
6.  

Heidi Montag

Heidi Montag
Heidi Montag is another overrated celebrity that might cause you to wonder, “who?” She rose to “fame” appearing on the MTV reality series “The Hills,” and stayed in the spotlight while she and her Hills then-boyfriend (now husband), Spencer Pratt, went out on the town. What proves that calling Heidi a celebrity is dicey at best is the fact that her album, released in 2010, sold only 1000 copies in the first week. Bye bye, Heidi.
7.  

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift
May be the least talented new singer to emerge in the past decade, Taylor Swift is an average-looking little girl who thinks she can sing but can't. Her performance with music giant Stevie Nicks at the 2010 Grammy Awards was pitiable. Simon Cowell probably would call her “forgettable,” which is why she's on the overrated list. Hopefully she will be forgotten in a few years.
8.  

Kanye West

Kanye West
We all felt sorry for Kanye West when his mother died after a botched cosmetic surgery operation. Then we all hated Kanye West when he took Taylor Swift's moment in the spotlight away from her at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards (despite the fact that she's a untalented, overrated celebrity in her own right). He tends to open his mouth first and think later (if at all). Kanye does have some musical talent, but not as much as he thinks he has. The average Joe or Jane doesn't care about what Kanye (or any other celebrity) has to say about politics or other musicians. Kanye needs to realize this and concentrate on the business of making music if he hopes to move off the overrated list.
9.  

Dr. Phil McGraw

Dr. Phil McGraw
It's truly frightening that this man can call himself a doctor. It's even scarier that so many people watch his show and believe every word he says. This former psychologist-turned-legal-consultant- turned-television-host doles out pithy words of “wisdom” to individuals and couples on national television daily. What makes people listen to him, and what makes him a celebrity, both remain mysteries.
10.  

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods
Yes, Tiger is a talented golfer, maybe the best professional golfer ever. But that's when he's actually golfing. Tiger has recently become overrated due to his private affairs becoming public. His dastardly extramarital deeds have earned him the adjective “overrated” before the tag “celebrity.” If and when he ever gets back to the business of golf and lets his private life remain private, maybe that adjective can be removed.
