"Honey Boo Boo" Cast Voted Least Desirable Neighbors of 2012

TLC(NEW YORK) -- More than 21 percent of Americans found Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and the cast of her reality television show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo to be among the least desirable neighbors of 2012, according to the sixth annual Zillow Celebrity Neighbor Survey.

The survey asked a group of U.S. adults which celebrities they would most like to be their neighbor, and which ones they wouldn't want to share a fence with.

Other worst neighbors of 2012 include Kim Kardashian and Kanye West -- 18 percent of respondents found the celebrity couple to be the worst neighbors -- while 12 percent would least like to live next to Donald Trump. 

Two percent would stay far away from disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, and another two percent would not want to have Clint Eastwood in the house next door.

Meanwhile, Reese Witherspoon was voted one of the most desirable neighbors for 2013, earning nine percent of the vote, along with Taylor Swift. 

Jon Stewart was voted the third-most desirable neighbor for 2013, with eight percent wanting to share a fence with the talk show host.

Country music couple Blake Shelton, who's a coach on The Voice, and Miranda Lambert topped the "most desirable" list, at 10 percent.

Forty-five percent of surveyed adults said they would not want to live next to any celebrities listed in the poll, up slightly from 42 percent last year.

Which Celebs Would Make the Best -- and Worst -- Neighbors?

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(SEATTLE) -- If you could have a celebrity as a neighbor, whom would you choose?  According to the fifth annual Zillow Celebrity Neighbor Survey, 11 percent of participants would like to be neighbors with Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow in 2012.

Celebrity couples Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux received 10 percent and 9 percent of the vote, respectively. Interestingly, 42 percent chose "none of the above," meaning those polled would choose other celebs to live near -- or that even in our star-obsessed culture, we like like our famous faces at arm's length.

The least desirable neighbor of 2011 is the cast of the reality show Jersey Shore, with 28 percent of the vote.  This is the second year in a row they achieved that dubious distinction. Twenty-one percent of respondents said Charlie Sheen would be the worst neighbor, and in third place is Lindsay Lohan, who got 14 percent of the vote.
