The Top 10 Most Overrated Hot Girls

October 10, 2008

One of the great things about the world we live in is that it’s filled with beautiful women. Of course there are some women who are hotter than others...and then there are those girls who are hot, but totally overrated.

I’m talking about the ones the media goes crazy for: the ones who are photographed everywhere, talked about and who appear high on the "Top 100 Hottest" lists even though they’re mostly boring and not hugely talented. I’m not saying you wouldn’t hit it if you had the chance. Hey, you’d be crazy if you didn’t. What I’m saying is that we throw around the term hot way too much. These days it doesn’t take a lot for someone to be deemed hot.

Megan Fox is clearly someone who deserves the label "hot." She has every right to be attached to that word, and it might as well be her middle name. She’s the type of girl who should be the litmus test for hotness. If you’re not at least as hot as Megan Fox, then you don’t deserve to be considered hot in the context of the celebrity world.

So here at the Top 10 Overrated Hot Girls (and how they compare to Megan Fox).

10. Amber Heard


Why People Think She's Hot: Amber was the “it” girl over the summer. She played Seth Rogen’s girlfriend in Pineapple Express and was on the cover of Maxim magazine.

Why She's Overrated: Yes the Maxim shots were hot, but there’s something generic and robotic about them. The girl looks like she’s been airbrushed within an inch of her life. She’s a decent actress but is she really one of the hottest female actresses of 2008. Maybe she is, or maybe she just has a great publicist. Plus, she reminds me of Heidi Montag.

Megan Fox Rating: 80% Megan Fox (Amber has a better rack)

9. Jennifer Garner


Why People Think She’s Hot: She kicked ass in Alias and was adorable in 13 Going On 30. She then started appearing on every magazine cover and hawking Neutrogena – a sure sign that people thought she was hot.

Why She’s Overrated: At best, Jennifer Garner is up there as the girl-next-door type. She is not a sex symbol. She’s always been a bit beefy looking, with broad shoulders and a square jaw. I’d be scared of her in a dark alley.

Megan Fox Rating: 70% Megan Fox

8. Mischa Barton


Why People Think She’s Hot: Teenaged boys and girls love Mischa because she used to be on The OC. Her mixed British and American accent is deemed classy and sophisticated. She started playing roles where she flashes some skin, hoping to become the next femme fatal.

Why She’s Overrated
: Her accent is annoying. She’s annoying. She seems stuck-up and has bad posture. Bad posture is totally unsexy.

Megan Fox Rating: 60% Megan Fox (Mischa's really not high on anyone's radar lately)

7. Adrianne Curry


Why People Think She’s Hot: She won a season of America’s Next Top Model and married a Brady. She’s pretty much living the American dream.

Why She’s Overrated: Seriously, how did this girl win America’s Next Top Model.  She looks like she should be bussing tables at Hooters or working at a roadside gas station in Florida.

Megan Fox Rating
: 40% Megan Fox

6. The Olsen Twins


Why People Think They’re Hot: America grew up with these two, then adorable twins on Full House. Then they managed to turn that role into an empire and used their image to sell whatever they could.

Why They’re Overrated
: Just because people loved them when they were younger doesn’t mean that love should carry over into adulthood. As adults they should have to earn our respect and adoration again. People should never rest of their laurels. Plus these girls now resemble Elijah Wood as the Hobbit.

Megan Fox Rating
: 45% Megan Fox

5. Sarah Jessica Parker


Why People Think She’s Hot: Sarah Jessica Parker is considered a cultural icon. She’s the girl every girl wants to be all thanks to Sex in the City. Plus she often plays the “sexy” girlfriend in movies such as Failure to Launch, The Family Stone and State of Main.

Why She’s Overrated: I think girls like her because she is ugly. One of my female friends in the office couldn’t believe I put her on this list, then told me she sometimes looks like a horse. Sometimes? All the time! I would have put her first, but that means she’d have won something.

Megan Fox Rating
: 15% of Megan Fox

4. Cameron Diaz


Why People Think She’s Hot: The former model is now one of Hollywood’s most bankable female actors. She was super hot in The Mask and generally scrubs up pretty well.

Why She’s Overrated: The problem with Cameron is she’s showing her age, but she’s ignoring it and that’s kind of tragic. She’s started to morph into her character from Shrek. Plus, as she ages she doesn’t get away with all the blokey stuff she does, like burping and farting. That is no longer cute!

Megan Fox Rating: 55% Megan Fox


3. Hayden Panettiere


Why People Think She’s Hot: Her role on Heroes is a man’s ultimate fantasy - a high school cheerleader with super powers. Enough said.

Why She’s Overrated: Hayden is everywhere. Everywhere! She’s cute and all but definitely not the hottest girl tramping about Hollywood. It doesn’t help that all the attention has gone to her head. Why is it that she gets so much love?

Megan Fox Rating
: 85% Megan Fox

2. Paris Hilton


Why People Think She’s Hot: This girl has been riding it all the way to the bank since her infamous sex tape was "leaked" online. The already-rich Hilton has whored herself out to anyone that will pay her to do something. She’s had a couple reality TV shows, been in movies, has a clothing line and gets paid huge amounts of money to appear for 25 minutes at a club opening.

Why She’s Overrated
: The girl’s a plain Jane who’s far too skinny. She’s also everything that’s wrong with Hollywood gossip and the celebrity-fueled world we live in. Do everyone a favor, stop paying attention to her. Then she might go away.

Megan Fox Rating: 7.5% Megan Fox

1. The Hills Girls


Why People Think They’re Hot: The Hills girls are famous and considered hot because they are on The Hills. This TV show gave them fame and fortune, which allowed most of them to get plastic surgery and look even “hotter.”

Why They’re Overrated
: These girls are super annoying, especially Heidi. They seem like the kind of superficial girls you’d hook up with at club in the OC, and then "forget" to call the next day. Heaven knows why they are soooooooo popular and why they’ve been around as long as they have.  Totally overrated.

Megan Fox Rating
: 4% Megan Fox – because there are 4 of them and they are female.
