Forty-two percent of Americans say they wouldnâ€™t want a celebrity as a neighbor, and they especially wouldnâ€™t want to live anywhere near the cast of the reality TV show â€œJersey Shore,â€ according to the fifth annual Zillow Celebrity Neighbor Survey for 2012.Â
On the other hand, 11 percent of those surveyed, said theyâ€™d most like to be neighbors with Tim Tebow, the Denver Broncos quarterback. Tebow had the highest ranking among celebrity neighbor wannabes.
Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as well as Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux followed close behind for top celebrities to live near.Â
As for this yearâ€™s worst celebrity neighbors, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, and Kim Kardashian came in behind the Jersey Shores cast. The Jersey Shores cast has nabbed the No. 1 spot for worst celebrity neighbors for the past two years in the survey.
The poll found a growing number of Americans saying they wouldnâ€™t want to live near a celebrity, up from 27 percent compared to last yearâ€™s survey.Â
"As a voyeuristic culture that breathlessly tracks every celebrity movement, it's extremely surprising to see so many Americans saying they wouldn't like to live next to any celebrity at all,â€ Amy Bohutinsky, Zillowâ€™s chief marketing officer, said in a statement. â€œIn fact, more people opted out of a celebrity neighbor in 2012 than in any of the past years we've run this poll. We may want to watch, read and talk about celebrities, but when it comes to sharing a back fence, many Americans think it's just too close for comfort."
