10 Most Hated Celebrities: Who's the Best of the Worst?

by at .  Updated at .

Every other year, Q Scores - a company that polls Americans on everything from politics to brand preferences - releases a list of celebrities whose reputations have taken the hardest hits in the past 24 months.

The survey is informally dubbed "the most hated list," but it's actually a measure of who's had the farthest fall from grace.

Basically, every major celeb is assigned a Q score based on their popularity. The celebs whose Q scores have dropped the most in the past two years have the dubious honor ending up on this list.

This year's survey not only tells us who's experienced the greatest reversal of fortune, it also gives us a pretty good sense of who's the most divisive or just generally the most-disliked by the American public (though there are certainly some surprises on the list). 

Take a look at the top (or bottom) ten to see if you agree. We think you'll agree that there's no arguing with the number one spot:

10. NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes
Looks like NeNe bailed on The Real Housewives of Atlanta at the right time. The former fan favorite has experienced a one point drop in her Q score since 2013.

9. Paula Deen

No surprise here. The revelation of Deen's racist tendencies resulted in a 3 point drop in her Q score.

8. Miley Cyrus

Miley is a love her or hate her type of gal, and it seems this year, more Americans chose the latter option. The oft-naked Twerk Queen's Q score dropped 4 points.

7. Judy Reyes

Judy Reyes
We don't think anyone saw this one coming. Reyes is probably best known for her role as Carla on Scrubs, but she now stars in the Lifetime series Devious Maids. Do people just hate her character? Is the show considered too risque? We have no idea, but for some reason, Reyes' Q score dropped a full 10 points.

6. Robert Griffin III

After a promising rookie season, the injury-plagued RG3 has been a mess on the field and in the locker room. His Q score dropped 11 points since 2013.

5. Adrian Peterson

Another no-brainer. Peterson was indicted last year for physically abusing his 4-year-old son. His Q score dropped 13 points as a result.

4. Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke
Remember when people couldn't get enough of Robin Thicke? How times have changed. An ugly divorce and a lawsuit concering his signature song caused the former R&B favorite to drop a full 14 Q score points.

3. Dr. Mehmet Oz

Gaining the public's trust only to try and sell them untested, unproven health products? Yeah, people don't like that. Dr. Oz lost a 16 Q points since the last survey.

2. Ariana Grande

Is it the cat ears? The rumors of diva-like behavior? The infamous donut-licking incident? We're not sure, but somehow, Ariana Grande dropped 26 Q points since 2013.

1. Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby
We don't think we need to explain this one. The formerly beloved pudding pop pitchman has lost an astonishing 43 points since the last Q survey.
