Kim Kardashian Tops “Most Searched Person of 2012” List

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates


Kim Kardashian is tops on the Internet once again.

Bing has released its “Most Searched Person” report for 2012, and the reality TV star has taken back her #1 spot from Justin Bieber.

Kardashian was champ in 2010 before ceding the crown to The Biebs last year.


Interestingly, neither Mitt Romney (#43) nor Barack Obama (#46) came anywhere close to the top tier.

Meanwhile, a number of high finishers in 2011 — including Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Megan Fox and Lady Gaga — fell out of the Top 10 entirely in 2012.

Peyton Manning replaces Maria Sharapova as the most-searched-for Sports Star of the year, while Bieber was the #1 Musician, edging out Whitney Houston and Katy Perry.

Three Kardashians (Kim, Khloe and Kourtney) topped the Reality TV Stars list ahead of Kate Gosselin and Honey Boo Boo.

Celebrity Couples were headlined by Chris Brown and Rihanna at #1, followed by Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

Babies led the way in terms of Celebrity Event searches, with Beyonce and Jessica Simpson’s children’s births in the top two spots, ahead of Whitney Houston’s death.
