You just can't have a douchebag list without Kanye. He even wrote the anthem for all the d-bags, scumbags and a-holes on this list. Now Yeezy was well-behaved for a good portion of 2010 while he was finishing up his album, but he was able to catch up in the douche-race just fine. He reignited his T.Swift feud because she didn't stick up for him after last year's VMA dramz, fought with Matt Lauer over nothing and he never passed up a chance to proclaim his own epic greatness.
But he can back it up. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is one of the most critically acclaimed and best-selling albums of the year, so we think that earns him the least douchiest douche spot.
Yep, the Late Night Wars were obviously one of the biggest stories of the year—it was just so cut-and-dry. Conan was obviously the one getting screwed over by not only corporate overloads but his colleague Jay Leno, who handed over the Tonight Show with these words: "I couldn't be happier. You were the only choice, you were the perfect choice, you have been an absolute gentleman." Then just six months later, he was totally down to oust Conan from the coveted spot, saying, "This is all business." Conan, meanwhile, continued to be an absolute gentleman, leaving Jay to look like the greedy d-bag that only cares about himself and his cars.
The 17-year-old Gossip Girl star who fancies herself a hard rock singer kind of epitomes the ultimate teenage douche. Homegirl really goes all-out to prove just how rebellious and unique and grown-up she is. First there's the over-the-top risque clothing and flashing. Then there's the intentionally provocative things she says like, "If it's a good sex tape, I'll watch it...I like some adult stars...I wouldn't f--k Tommy Lee." Then she tops it all off with her lovely so-over-it-I-don't-give-an-eff attitude and underage smoking. It's the perfect recipe for the ultimate nightmare. But at least she's good for laughs.
The wardrobe of Kourtney Kardahian's baby daddy is enough on its own to really solidify his d-bag status, but he takes everything to the next level with the partying, the drunken fights and nasty verbal fights with neighbors. But hey, that's the kind of stuff that makes good reality TV—and it looks like he's going to keep it coming for next year, so we can probably expect to see him here again!
It was a surprise to everyone when Courteney Cox and David Arquette announced their split, but he had kind of hinted at it before. "Courteney recently said to me, 'I don't want to be your mother anymore on our 11th anniversary," he told Howard Stern prior to the break-up. And he has seriously used his Courteney-free time to go all-out! He shared intimate details of a postsplit hookup and has been going wild all over town, hitting on ladies everywhere while looking like a gross mess.
Ugh, Mel Gibson. What is there even left to say about him? We don't even really need to prove he's a douche at this point. And after this year's onslaught of taped angry racist rants cost him both his agents and a possible comeback job, we're pretty sure he's been punished enough.
When one reality show door closes, a new reality show door opens, right? That's how it works for K.Goss, who jumped at the opportunity for some Dancing With the Stars. And—if you can believe it!—she was rumored to be quite the diva backstage, refused to listen to her dancing partner's instructions and spent her time jet-setting between Los Angeles to New York to talk about what a good mom she is while her kids stayed home with the nannies.
But since that was all early 2010 stuff, let's just check in to see where both Jon and Kate are now: Jon has a real job that is not on TV and Kate is still making random morning show appearances to talk about her family's private business. Interesting...
The singer-songwriter-ladykiller hit his peak in douchedom this year after a series of stupid sound bites to magazines all culminating in his explosive Playboy interview in which he calls Jessica Simpson "sexual napalm" and notes his "d--k is sort of like a white supremacist." He immediately apologized then cried on stage and eventually quit Twitter, so he at least shows signs of improvement. But let's not forget that he also found time in 2010 to be mean to Taylor Swift and no one is allowed to mess with her—she's so fragile and precious (or something like that?).
Once again, Charlie Sheen proves he is the luckiest d-bag alive. While part of his 2010 drama started last year with a little Christmas Day domestic violence, the effects of that were felt this year as he went to jail, rehab and divorce court. You'd think after all that he might spend the last bit of the year laying low, but no. Instead he went out with a bang and trashed a Plaza Hotel room while naked with a scared porn star. Despite all this, he retains serious bargaining power and remains the highest-paid actor on TV as part of his family-friendly sitcom, Two and a Half Men. How this is even possible?!
Sandra Bullock was this awards season's golden girl and she used just about every acceptance speech to dote on Jesse James. "I never knew what it felt like for someone to have my back, so thank you, " she said in her Golden Globe acceptance speech. And then he had to go throw it all away with a big, ugly cheating scandal just days after her Oscar win. One that not only involved multiple affairs but also a weird nickname, a frequently half-naked tattooed lady and Nazi salute pictures. We're happy to see Sandra come out of the whole thing just fine, but we just can't believe someone would have the nerve to do that to her!
