THG Celebrity of the Year Finalist #8: Kim Kardashian!

by at . Comments

With 2012 coming to an end, it is with enormous pride that THG unveils its 10 finalists for its prestigious, arbitrary, 6th Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These stars provided us with their best, their worst, their naked photos, their sex tapes (sometimes) and their scandals (often). This month, THG honors that greatness.

We started at #10 with Adam Levine, moved on to Honey Boo Boo at #9 and now we present Celebrity of the Year #8... Kim Kardashian!

Thumbs Up, Kim Kardashian

Kardashian accomplished very little in 2012, and we don't even mean that in our typically negative fashion.

She didn't get married or divorced. She didn't star in a sex tape or a movie. She pretty much existed in the world she has created for herself, Tweeting away, filling up our Kim Kardashian bikini photos collection via Instagram and remaining relevant by taking full advantage of social media.

She also started to date Kanye West, who, of course, is the man with whom she is meant to be.

Kardashian was the most searched-for celebrity on Bing in 2012. She was the third most searched-for term, period, on Yahoo!. She created a stir and rumored riots simply by touching down in the Middle East.

But Kim accomplished all of this without being involved in any major scandal or being ridiculously chosen to host season two of The X Factor. Yes, she started a new fashion line and, sure, she has been the subject of numerous false pregnancy rumors.

However, she's far from the only celebrity to take either of those steps.

Instead, Kim Kardashian has earned herself a seemingly permanent spot on this list by merely standing on red carpets; reading scripted lines on an E! reality show and, of course, possessing very large breasts.

Chatter of a second Kim Kardashian sex tape was never proven true, or else the busty brunette would have ranked much higher on this countdown. But eighth place isn't shabby for someone who is neither an actress, a singer, a producer, an athlete, a model nor a politician.

And, let's face it, Kim already has a strong shot at #1 in 2013 after she marries and splits from Kanye.

This article is off on a few counts. Those "riots" in the middle east were actually about 50 people protesting. And I have heard claims that the protests were made up. As far as her show, claiming it is "scripted" is a bold statement, don't you think? Any proof? With Kanye, she was married to Damon Thomas for three years, people often forget that. Her and Kanye seem very happy together, unlike Kris, I think if they do get married, it will last. Glad to see Kim get on the list, though she deserves to be higher.
