LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — It turns out living next to a celebrity may not be as desirable as most Americans think.
KNX 1070′s Margaret Carrero reports a survey from online housing marketplace Zillow found “Late Night” TV host Jimmy Fallon and celebrity couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are the most and least desirable celebrity neighbors, respectively.
Perhaps the most intriguing finding from the 7th Annual Celebrity Index was that over one-third of Americans surveyed would prefer not to have any celebrity live next door, down 45 percent from 2012 and marking the largest drop in the survey’s seven-year history.
Fallon, who was earlier this year named the successor to Jay Leno as host of the coveted “Tonight Show” and headlined a successful comedy tour, was most popular among young adults surveyed (14 percent) and slightly more popular among females (12 percent) compared with males (10 percent), according to Zillow.
Amy Bohutinsky, Chief Marketing Officer for Zillow, told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO the findings were not entirely surprising.
“He’s likable and funny and down-to-earth and overwhelmingly Americans said this is the person I would most want to live next door to,” Bohutinsky said.
