overrated people

Who do you think is overrated?

I'll start this off with Oprah Winfrey. Her tv show used to be on in the daytime on channel 4 or 5 and it was really trashy - disfunctional families, plugs for products and quack "doctors". I'm sure she does lots of great charity work, just like most other a Listers, but I think she's overrated especially when she's praised for a speech that someone else wrote. She wouldn't make the perfect potus and would just be another cleb.

I've never watched Oprah.

I think Kylie Minogue is overrated. She can't sing and her cute little girl image is way out of date.

Shakespeare. It's mostly just fart and sex jokes.

Princess Diana. Sure, she did a lot in her time etc etc. Don’t understand why she’s become a saint since her death though. People are seriously weird about her

Mother Teresa. Not the saint she was made out to be.

Mary Berry. People are mad on her. I don't get it.

Ah I came in to say Kylie... for the same reasons. She makes me cringe!!

Aw I love Kylie. A friend of mine met her through work a couple of years ago. She said she was very sweet and very polite to everyone she worked with and much liked by them all.

Agree on everyone else that's been mention though and adding Kim Kardashian and her giant fake arse to the thread.

I have a small hatred for Brian Cox, such waffly pointless programmes. Give me Jim Al-Khalili any day, plus his stupid hair and flobbery lips.

Shakespeare isn’t fart and sex jokes, it’s so much more than that.

I can't agree with you on Oprah though. She's done some really powerful stuff on some of her shows. Maybe I've just seen the best bits on youtube.

Any uk ex-politician.

The Kardashions - absolutely talentless and skanky.

The kardashians

Gary Lineker. Absolute slimeball who is seemingly worshipped on Twitter.

He’s done some shady stuff in the past, and all his tweets come across as “oh please love me, I’m just like all you regular Joes!”

Victoria Beckham

Lucky barrow boy imo but now he is some kind of business expert?

Ellen Degeneres.

I'll take Oprah any day over Ellen.

RedDwarves Wed 23-May-18 05:31:08

Also, I'll add Obama.

Jeremy Vine - I just can't get over the fact he's paid £700,000 pa.
