Tim Tebow Named Most Desirable Celebrity Neighbor for 2012, Cast of Jersey Shore Voted Worst Neighbors for Second Year
More than 40 Percent of Americans Do Not Want a Celebrity Neighbor, According to 5th Annual Zillow Celebrity Neighbor Survey
SEATTLE, Dec. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. adults would most like to be neighbors with Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow in 2012, according to the fifth annual Zillow® Celebrity Neighbor Survey[i]. The cast of the reality TV show "Jersey Shore" was named least desirable neighbors of 2011. Meanwhile, 42 percent of surveyed adults said they did not want to live next to any celebrities, up from 27 percent last year. The annual Zillow poll asks U.S. adults which celebrities they would most like to be their neighbor, and with whom they wouldn't want to share a fence.
Most Desirable Neighbors for 2012
Celebrity super couples Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux received 10 percent and 9 percent of the vote, respectively. Americans with children, however, preferred to live next to Jolie and Pitt (14 percent) rather than Aniston and Theroux (9 percent).
Worst Neighbors for 2011
"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. In fact, more people opted out of a celebrity neighbor in 2012 than in any of the past years we've run this poll," said Zillow Chief Marketing Officer Amy Bohutinsky. "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."

[i] These are some of the findings of an Ipsos poll conducted Nov. 30 – Dec. 1, 2011. For the survey, a nationally representative sample of 1,007 randomly-selected adults aged 18 and over residing in the United States was interviewed via Ipsos' U.S. online omnibus. With a sample of this size, the results are considered accurate within +/-3.1 percentage points 19 times out of 20, of what they would have been had the entire population of adults in the United States been polled. The margin of error will be larger within subgroupings of the survey population. These data were weighted to ensure the sample's regional and age/gender composition reflects that of the actual U.S. population according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error, and measurement error.
