This is one of my kids' favorite websites, and today at noon, the FAIL Blog Community Names Justin Bieber the Prince of FAIL in 2010!
From a failed Segway getaway to a driving test meltdown and a run-in with a revolving door, the FAIL Blog community today ranked Justin Bieber as the Prince of FAIL in 2010. With a landslide win of nearly 50 percent of the votes, Justin Bieber beat out MTV’s train wreck, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, as well as Tiger Woods and Mel Gibson.
“When you’re the planet’s biggest teen sensation, nominated for a Grammy, and Barbara Walters calls you one of this year’s most fascinating people -- surely someone out there will capture you in FAIL moments,” said Ben Huh, CEO of the Cheezburger Network of humor sites that includes I Can Has Cheezburger?, FAIL Blog, and The Daily What. “Justin Bieber seems to appreciate humor, so hopefully he’ll wear this crown with pride knowing that a few Bieber FAILS gave us a fun opportunity to laugh at someone else’s misfortune.”
Of course it wouldn’t be a complete FAIL list without ranking the FAIL Blog videos submitted by fans from around the world highlighting average people doing dumb things. The winner in the Top 10 FAIL Blog videos for 2010 is the Watermelon Launch FAIL – footage from the reality TV show, The Amazing Race, where a woman takes a watermelon in the face with a giant slingshot. Answering Your Phone in Class FAIL ranks second and Roller Coaster Vomit FAIL follows closely behind.
