The Contenders

He is one of the ugliest people I have ever seen.-DarkBoi-X

Why is dave on here

Dave shouldn't be on here! He's not a jerk at all, and he'd be devastated if he found himself on this list!

He wins a Grammy for every category because he used to be in nirvana

He's a pedophile. Enough said.

28 Jared Leto Jared Leto Jared Joseph Leto is an American actor, singer-songwriter, and director. He is well known for being the lead singer of Thirty Seconds to Mars.

Why Dave Grohl is in this this? He is actually kind.Jared Leto should be at least in the top tens. He embarrasses his young fans on stage, he has a big ego, and he is a two-timer. Just because he is a "rock star", it does not mean he should treat his fans badly.

Jared is talented, but he needs to go to therapy. The sad part is he is so handsome that his fans forgets he is a jerk.
