There are some reality stars that have used their fame to help improve the world. Those stars aren't going to be found anywhere near a list like the one you're about to read though.
These 15 reality stars are absolutely despicable and some have committed crimes that are unforgivable. Which might be why several entries are also expected to spend the rest of their lives behind bars. But when you learn about their actions, including several who committed crimes against minors, you'll absolutely find yourself agreeing with their sentencing.
Others, may also find themselves behind bars, like Mike Sorrentino who decided that paying your taxes is super overrated. Then there are people like Tila Tequila who wants to be the Asian Hitler, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt who wasted millions on plastic surgery and frivolous purchases and Flavor Flav who spent thousands on drugs every single day. All people who we hope you aren't using as role models for how you live your life.
These are the 15 most despicable reality stars that you should have no respect for.
15 Will Hayden (Sons Of Guns) Assaulted A Minor + His Daughter
Will Hayden was the owner of a gun shop and the primary personality on the television series Sons of Guns. The show came to an abrupt end in 2014 when Hayden was arrested and charged with raping a child.
Following the first woman coming out with the story, who said Hayden raped her repeatedly when she was 11 and 12 years old, another woman came forward and said that Hayden raped her in the 90s when she was also underage.
Hayden's eldest daughter also accused Hayden of entering her bedroom one night while drunk and attempted to kiss and disrobe her, but she was able to fight him off.
He was justifiably originally sentenced to two life sentences, plus an additional 40 years and is ineligible for parole. Later charges that emerged after his conviction that was also centered around rape (though details are unclear) added another life sentence to his record.
14 Josh Duggar (19 Kids And Counting) - Assaulted 5 Women (Including His Sisters)
19 Kids and Counting was one of the most successful sitcoms on TLC. But the store sunk quickly when it became public knowledge that Josh Duggar had molested five girls when he was younger.
Some of the women abused by Josh were family members, making the situation all the more alarming. It was also revealed that Josh's parents also knew of the incidents, but elected for their own versions of punishing him as opposed to properly contacting the authorities in a timely manner.
Despite all of this, Josh is expecting his 5th child alongside his wife Anna in 2017. We hope that this entire situation has helped improve their communication so that his children can have a life that isn't negatively impacted by Josh's awful actions.
13 Vincent Margera (Viva La Bam) - Grabbed Two Minors As "Part Of His Character"
While many of the celebrities on our list are still alive and kicking, that isn't the case for Vincent Margera who passed away at the age of 59 in 2015. Margera suffered from liver and kidney failure that was brought on by his addiction to alcohol and years of obesity.
Margera's decline was also partially brought on due to the fact that he was forbidden from portraying his Don Vito character after he sexually assaulted two 12-year-old girls while at a Mall in Colorado.
Margera tried to blame him grabbing their chest as just being part of the character, but the judge wasn't buying it. While Margera avoided jail time, he was convicted on two counts of sexual assault and was sentenced 10 years probation.
12 Chris Blinston (Ink Masters) - Choked Out His Daughter
Chris Blinston helps give people tattoos that are going to last a lifetime. But one thing that also sticks around is a criminal record, which the star of Ink Masters is facing after being arrested in September.
Blinston was taken in after his 13-year-old daughter stated that she was choked by Blinston to the point where she was knocked out for 10 seconds, all while he verbally assaulted her and threatened her about making sure nobody found out about the incident.
Making the situation all the more terrifying is the fact that Blinston is significantly bigger and stronger than his daughter and very easily could have killed her. The police were made aware of the situation after his daughter talked about it in therapy.
11 Mama June (Here Comes Honey Boo Boo) - Started Dating Man Who Assaulted Her Daughter
TLC has no shortage of reality shows that have been at the center of controversy. Such is the case with Here Comes Honey Boo Boo which was canceled after 4 years.
Why? Mama June decided that shacking up with a registered sex offender was a totally cool thing to do. Not only that, but the man was a sex offender because he sexually assaulted one of June's daughters. How she could ever want to talk to that man, much less invite her back to her bed is something that the general public did not understand.
Mama June recently tried to re-enter the public spotlight after losing hundreds of pounds, but changing your physical appearance definitely isn't enough to make the public forget your horrifically selfish actions.
10 Michael Skupin (Survivor) - Possessed Child Content And Ran Ponzi Scheme
Michael Skupin should be instantly recognizable to any fan of the television show Survivor. As well as infamously falling into the fire and being medically evacuated his first time out, Skupin also came back and made it to day 39 with Survivor: Philippines.
But Skupin may always be remembered as the Survivor contestant who got busted with child p*rnography. Skupin was also arrested and charged with larceny and racketeering that was linked to a Ponzi scheme he was helping run.
He was sentenced to 1-4 years in prison. While he was able to make it to the end, he didn't win Survivor: Philippines. Something tells us we sure wish he did when you consider his legal fees and restitution costs can't have been cheap!
9 Tyler Nolan (Ink Masters) - Arrested On Multiple Drug And Gun Charges
Tyler Nolan was unable to make it to the end of Ink Masters, coming in 6th place when he competed in the 6th season. Perhaps had he gone further he wouldn't have found himself in the situation that landed him a spot on this list.
Nolan was arrested in 2016 after police pulled him over and smelled a strong odor of marijuana. That alone wouldn't land him on this list though. What will, is that along with copious amounts of marijuana, they also found six ecstasy pills, cocaine, and three guns (including a shotgun).
Cops also found roughly 900 rounds of ammunition. Nolan had the $18,000 he needed to pay bail but we're sure his legal problems will rear their ugly head soon enough.
8 Tila Tequila (A Shot At Love) - Wants To Be The Asian Hitler
Tila Tequila made a name for herself by becoming the most popular person on MySpace, which she then was able to transition into her own reality shows that were based around attempting to date her.
Tequila has also stripped off her clothes in a variety of formats, including Playboy. But Tequila also has elected that she thinks Hitler wasn't such a bad guy.
On top of trying to sexualize Nazi uniforms, Tequila has stated in the past that she wants to be an Asian version of Adolf Hitler,
"There are only two things in this world, for which I would gladly sacrifice my own life; the destruction of all Jews and preservation of the white race...You know what will help Asians earn respect? An Asian version of Adolf Hitler… I want that person to be me; I want to save the world from this Zionist disease."
7 Hulk Hogan (Hogan Knows Best) - Shows Off His Racist Side
Now if we're being fair, Hulk Hogan is always going to be first recognized for his accomplishments in the ring. But the fact that he also had his own reality show (as did his daughter) helps qualify him for this list.
We're sure you may already know the scandal with Hogan, but just in case you don't, Hogan forever damaged his image when he was caught on tape saying (in regards to his daughter)
"I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*ck some n*gger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n*gger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we’re all a little racist. F**king n*gger...I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f*cking n*ggers.”
It didn't take long for the WWE to distance themselves from the Hulkster.
6 Farrah Abraham (Teen Mom) - Performing In The 'Other' Industry
Farrah Abraham didn't exactly become a public persona for making good choices when you consider she appeared on Teen Mom. But her decisions as she gets older are perhaps even worse, especially considering she has a kid to support and set an example for.
As well as performing in a gentleman's club, Abraham has also appeared in adult videos. And while she initially claimed she was sexually assaulted and drugged during the making of the film with James Deen, she later said she often self-pleasures herself to the tape. So, not too sure what one it is, but either way it's not good!
Abraham has also released her own line of adult toys moulded around her body parts.
5 Flavor Flav (Flavor Of Love) - Would Spend Thousands On Blow Every Day
Flavor Flav may have made a name for himself as a musician, but he also has several reality shows that he starred on VH1. This included Flavor of Love which saw Flav attempt to find love.
When not trying to drop a beat or woo the ladies, Flav would often find himself in legal issues or be engaging in drug use. It was allegedly said in his autobiography that Flav would blow through $2,600 every single day on cocaine.
This was a habit he kept up for 6 years! With a habit like that it's amazing he lived to tell the tale. Let's hope he's gotten his life together considering he has 7 children to take care of.
4 Heidi Montag (The Hills) - Ruined Her Body And Blew Through Cash
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt had their time in the limelight but like so many reality stars, their downfall was incredibly public. We're going to focus on Montag, who along with failed ventures such as an attempted singing career that Pratt estimated cost $2 million, spent a ridiculous amount of time and money altering her body with plastic surgery.
When talking about blowing through her money, Montag admitted
"I should have known growing up and not having any money ever that I should have kept every dollar that I had. I thought I was investing in myself and my brand. Like Kim [Kardashian.]"
Montag isn't nearly as despicable as some people on this list, but she definitely isn't to be looked up to. Spencer also admitted to blowing money on props for the show such as various suits and a massive blue monster truck that was bought for one episode and never driven again.
3 Toby Willis (The Willis Family) - Assaulted Minors
Toby Willis and his family clan of 12 were known for their musical talent, but there definitely isn't going to be any musical songs written about his transgressions.
That's because Toby is a despicable person who sexually molested a minor on several different occasions.
While he initially denied the charges, things must have become abundantly clear that he was going to be found guilty - as he decided in court to plead guilty to 4 counts of child rape. He received 40 years in prison.
The series lasted only 12 episodes, meaning Toby's time in the spotlight was definitely far briefer than the time he's going to spend being punished for his horrible crimes.
2 Tim Zickuhr (Ice Road Truckers) - Kidnapped And Abused A "Lady Of The Night"
Ice Road Truckers may not have been the coolest show in the world, but it was enough to give Tim Zickuhr at least some time in the public spotlight. Unfortunately, Zickuhr's public persona also led to the world learning that he thought it was a great idea to lock a prostitute in a closet.
The incident occurred after Zichuhr accused the woman of taking $1,000 out of his ATM account. Along with tying her up, Zickuhr physically abused her and threatened her life.
He was sentenced to 15 years in jail for kidnapping charges. Something tells us he would have much rather have just paid the woman the $1,000 as opposed to having gotten himself in this situation!
1 Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino (Jersey Shore) - Thought Paying Taxes Was Overrated
The cast of Jersey Shore definitely enjoyed their time in the spotlight and was paid handsomely for their "talents". But for whatever reason, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino decided that paying his taxes was a super overrated thing to do.
He allegedly lied on upwards of $8 million worth of income and while the case is ongoing, may find himself spending years in jail. Sorrentino has been defending these allegations since 2014, but recently was given another set of charges related to the case.
When talking about the situation, Sorrentino said
“Obviously these certain circumstances that are going on right now aren’t the best, but I’m just living the simple life — I have a girlfriend, I’ve been clean and sober over a year and a half, I go to meetings, I take care of my body and I’m just kind of enjoying the next chapter of my life."
