Most annoying celebs: Final battle
By Marianne Dowling, QMI Agency

After a month of voting and kvetching, it all comes down to a Jersey Girl and a kid from Stratford, Ont.

Yes, Justin Bieber and Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi are now the last two celebs fist-pumping for your attention in our annoying young celebrity contest.

Judging from reader comments, this final battle will be a close one. Both the Biebs and Snookers have garnered the most colourful comments and the strongest voting numbers of the competition.

So get excited, people. This is your moment to crown the most annoying celebrity under 32.

The deadline for voting is this Thursday, December 6 at midnight and check back in to see who won on December 7.

LINDSAY LOHAN vs. SNOOKI


WINNER: Snooki

Despite her new assault arrest, not even LiLo could punch out Snooki this round. Her Orange-ness survived by trouncing Lohan with 57% of the vote. For many readers, it all came down to talent. So even though Lohan has legal problems, a dysfunctional family, and regrettable acting roles – she still made ‘Mean Girls’ back in 2004 - and did a damn fine job in it, too. Snooki, on the other hand, is getting paid over $150,000 an episode to say obnoxious things around a camera. This ‘money for nothing’ attitude is what propelled her to the final round.

CHOICE QUOTES:

I think Miss Snooki takes the cake here. At least LiLo DID have a good rep whereas Snooki never did. How is Snooki even famous? It's just like Kim Kardashian - fame for nothing.

Snooki makes our youth believe that you can be an utterly useless, no-talent waste of oxygen and still become rich and famous. At least LiLo was already rich and famous before she became a social pollutant.

‘Cause it's Snooki. You do not need another reason. Lindsey getting arrested is almost like a sunset (daily thing) it's not annoying anymore. I just feel sorry for Lilo

Lindsay actually had talent at one time - too bad she messed it up with alcohol, drugs and whatever else she thinks is a good idea at the time. Snooki, on the other hand, has never had talent and only got to where she is because of copious amounts of alcohol.

Yes, Lindsay Lohan is a Hollywood train wreck in every sense of the word, but Snooki has given us the terrible notion that she might be imparting what little knowledge and 'class' she has to her child, which will perpetuate another Snooki in 18 years. *Shudder*

The day of the vote... she's arrested again. Train wrecks are only worth looking at a few moments before we drive on.

Lindsay just played Elizabeth Taylor on television and did a reasonably good job of it. Snooki plays herself on television and doesn't even do that well!

She's an 'Italian' Kardashian .Famous for nothing !!!

Lindsay is 'trying' to get her career back (let’s see if she can stay out of trouble) and is doing something - What does Snooki do, other than exist to annoy!!

Say what you will about Lohan's current problems, at least she has made positive contributions early in her career before she lost control. I have yet to see [anything positive] come out of ‘Jersey Shore’ or any members of its cast.

JUSTIN BIEBER vs. PARIS HILTON

WINNER: Justin Bieber

Who knew a pair of overalls and a backwards ball cap would cause so much rage online? When Justin Bieber accepted a Diamond Jubliee Medal from Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the fashion faux pas went viral and people from all walks of life scolded him like a schoolboy chewing gum in church. This sentiment spilled over into his vote against Paris Hilton. And even though this wasn’t the only reason people voted for Bieber, it was almost the only reason. Justin moves on to the final round with 53%.

CHOICE QUOTES:

As much as Paris Hilton has annoyed in the past, she's dropped off the radar a bit, thankfully. If we were talking 5 years ago? She'd win hands down. The Biebs needs a babysitter pronto. He's an embarrassment.

I was aghast when I saw the picture of Bieber with the Prime Minister. Could anybody really be that clueless/disrespectful?

He said he wants to be the next Michael Jackson? Then wears overalls to meet the leader of a country?

SERIOUSLY??? OVERALLS??? His mom should be on the list too. If I ever went out dressed like him my mom would beat the s--t out of me.

For his complete and utter disrespect to Canada's Prime Minister. He wore a suit to meet Obama. Didn't his mother teach him respect or to remember his roots? Not to mention the "Beliebers" that are just as annoying or more so. Paris is just a has-been. Why is she even on here?

His popularity still puzzles me. I don't know anyone who likes him. I must not have many friends.

NO one cares about [Justin] and Selena anymore! He's cute, but so young and annoying!

Because at least Paris, for all her many, many faults, would know to put on something nice to meet the leader of her country. Certainly the hillbilly look didn't do much to impress the rest of the world about Canadians as a whole.

Who is Paris Hilton? Her sex tape now counts as vintage porn. Biebs on the other hand insists on wearing those ridiculous saggy R&B pants, which he should be embarrassed to be seen in public in, then has the sand to insult all Canadians by showing up half-dressed in his best farm clothes for a major award by our prime minister. Most decent restaurants would show him the door if he came in like that.

Why Bieber you may ask! I am a Canadian pop star that meets my country's PM in coveralls but I will meet the States President in a suit. can you spell Sell out!

And now it's your turn to decide in the final battle.

Will it be Justin or Snooki?
