Celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, also known as “Kimye,” were the least desirable neighbors of 2013, according to Zillow.

Twenty-five percent of respondents to Zillow’s Celebrity Neighbor Survey said that “Kimye” was the worst neighbor, and only 2 percent said they would like to live nearby the pair in the coming year. The cast of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” (18 percent) and Justin Bieber (16 percent) ranked as the second and third worst neighbors among celebrities listed in the poll, which was reportedly administered to more than 1,000 adults.

Jimmy Fallon, on the other hand, was voted the most desirable neighbor (11 percent) in 2013, with Jennifer Lawrence and couple Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton following close behind (both 10 percent), Zillow said.

In addressing the poll’s results, Zillow Chief Marketing Officer Amy Bohutinsky noted that Jimmy Fallon had his first baby this year, conducted a successful comedy tour and was named Jay Leno’s successor to “The Tonight Show.”

She also observed that TV personality Kim Kardashian and rap titan Kanye West “have a reputation for living an over-the-top lifestyle, with drama and the paparazzi never too far behind.”

“No one wants to live next door to a family who has cameras following them everywhere and seems to seek out as much attention as possible,” Bohutinsky added.

Perhaps reflecting growing disillusionment with celebrity culture, the share of survey respondents who said they would not want to live next to any celebrities listed in the poll plummeted to 34 percent from 45 percent a year ago, the largest drop recorded in the survey’s seven-year history.
