Surprise, surprise! Twenty-five-year-old Casey Anthony, who was recently found not guilty of the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, has beat out 6,000 other celebrities to be named "The Most Hated Person in America" by a recent poll.
According to E-Poll Market Research, who publised the survey results on Wednesday, Anthony even beat the reviled O.J. Simpson, whose acquittal of the murder of his wife in 1995 was often referenced in the wake of the surprising Anthony verdict. But don't feel too bad for O.J. (or, perhaps, do feel bad or him?); Simpson came in fourth on the list.
Despite a recent campaign to change his image, former Hills star Spencer Pratt snagged the No. 2 spot on the list of America's most reviled. Though Pratt's current situation -- he's now broke and living with his wife Heidi Montag at his parents' beach house -- should have made him a sympathetic figure, voters were apparently unmoved by his plight.
In third place is Nadya Suleman, otherwise known as "Octomom." Her prodigious and costly IVF treatments, which resulted in octuplets (her brood of kids is currently at 14 total), has engendered harsh criticism and attention.
Former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin came in fifth place, followed by Bristol Palin's ex-fiancé Levi Johnston. "Hollywood Madame" Heidi Fleiss, Paris Hilton, and Howard Stern also cracked the top 10.
Fifty-seven percent of poll respondents rated Anthony as "creepy" and 60 percent of respondents categorized her as "cold," giving her a clear lead over Simpson. Of the 1,100 Americans polled, a sweeping 94 percent put Anthony in the "total dislike" category. Ouch.
