Yahoo’s most searched list of 2006

By  | 

Britney Spears topped Yahoo Inc.'s most popular search term list for 2006.

In fact, the top five were dominated by blondes:
Shakira at No. 3
Jessica Simpson No. 4
Paris Hilton No. 5

So who or WHAT could possibly split the blonde brigade?  It's WWE – World Wrestling Entertainment sneakin' in at No. 2.

In fact, WWE is the only masculine existance within the top ten!

Female stars Beyonce Knowles, Pamela Anderson and Lindsay Lohan helped to fill up the remaining top ten positions.

“We consistently see female celebrities in the top ten, but WWE at second shows there are lot of underground fans out there, one of their guilty pleasures,” said Heather Moylan of Yahoo Buzz.

In case you're curious as to what the world was searching for in way of news:

The most searched news story in 2006 was alligator wrestler Steve Irwin's death followed by the death of Anna Nicole Smith's son.

President George Bush was the most searched politician this year, while Vice President Dick Cheney came in at No. 5, with his hunting accident in February.
