Forbes have released their ‘Most Overexposed Celebrities’ list 2012.
No surprises that the list includes Kim Kardashian, Snooki and Lindsay Lohan, but who came out on top?
Gerry Philpott, CEO of E-Poll Research, the firm who conducted the research for Forbes, explains that overexposure isnâ€™t as bad as it used to be…
â€śA decade ago being overexposed was the kiss of death, but today itâ€™s necessary to fuel reality TV.â€ť
Kim Kardashian topped the list with a 65 percent overexposure rating (the average score of a Hollywood star is 5 percent) due to her over-the-top wedding, whirlwind marriage and hasty divorce filing, raked in $12 million according to Forbes â€“ meaning her overexposure is profiting her.
Lindsay Lohan, who trails Kim in the number two slot by only one percent, is more hurt by her overexposure than anyone else says Philpott…
â€śIf you want to be a serious movie actress maybe you donâ€™t want high overexposed numbers, but if youâ€™re going to be a successful reality star, you need those numbers”
