There's one Olympic event we've just never really figured out: Curling. What is it, really? We know it's basically like an icy version of shuffleboard with a whole bunch of yelling, and we're very confused.

But mostly, whenever we see footage of curling it makes us wonder: what if hair curling was an Olympic sport?

Really, let's think about this for a moment. It's just as exciting and fast-paced (if not, more) than the actual curling sport—and there's all sort of potential for intense moments. "Oh, no—looks like she burned her forehead with a red-hot curling rod! That's gotta hurt. That'll cost her some real time." 

So, if the hair curling competition were an actual thing, then who do you think would win? We would give the bronze medal to old-school Taylor Swift, back in the day when she was sporting some pretty fabulous blond curls. 

And just edging out Taylor would be Keri Russell during her Felicity days. But before she famously chopped it all off. Keri would really make for a fierce hair curling competitor, so she wins the silver medal. But who would knock her out of first place and take home the gold?

Justin Timberlake during his 'N Sync years, naturally! We've gotta give Justin the gold for those gloriously curly locks. He wins the curling awards by a mile.

But even though Justin is the hair curling champ, we've got to give out a few honorable mentions. Before Beyoncé was rocking a sleek bob or beachy waves she had some serious curls going on. And of course there's AnnaLynne McCord, who also has a pretty memorable mane. And last but not least, we've got to give a curling award shout out to Jonah Hill during his Superbad days. 

So admit it, if the hair curling awards were a televised Olympic event, you'd totally watch, right? No shame.
