Americans would most like to be neighbors with the singer-songwriter and pop sensation Taylor Swift in 2016, according to the ninth annual Zillow® Celebrity Neighbor Survey. Republican presidential candidate and business mogul Donald Trump was named the least desirable neighbor of 2015.
The annual Zillow survey 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 in 2016
Taylor Swift was the top choice for a celebrity neighbor in 2016, earning 12 percent of surveyed adults’ votes, up from her third place finish last year. The pop star was especially favorable among millennials, receiving 17 percent of their votes.
Actress Jennifer Lawrence and comedian Amy Schumer rounded out the top three positions, earning 11 percent and 9 percent of votes, respectively. All three women were equally as popular among male and female voters.
Thirty-four percent of surveyed adults said they would not want to live next to any of the celebrities listed in the poll.
Worst Neighbors for 2015
Outspoken Republican candidate, Donald Trump, tops this year’s list for worst neighbor, moving up three positions from his fourth place finish in 2014. Trump earned 24 percent of total votes for worst neighbor, but was especially disliked by females (27 percent) and millennials (33 percent) polled.
Kim Kardashian and Kayne West came in second with 22 percent of the votes, narrowly defeating last year’s worst neighbor, Justin Bieber, who ranked third this year (18 percent). Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, finished fourth with 11 percent of votes.
“2015 was a landmark year for Taylor Swift, from her highly successful 1989 World Tour, to being named the youngest female ever on Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Women list – it’s no surprise America picked the down-to-earth singer-songwriter as 2016’s most desirable neighbor,” says Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow chief marketing officer. “Donald Trump on the other hand, is frequently in the limelight for his polarizing comments and non-apologetic attitude which some may see as unattractive qualities in a neighbor.”
