Top 10 Most Overrated People of All Time

This list is to show people who RECEIVE TOO MUCH CREDIT OR SUPPORT for some or no reason.
The Top Ten
1 Christopher Columbus Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer, navigator, colonizer and citizen of the Republic of Genoa.

Hmmm let's see... He claimed and lied about discovering America when there were already Native Americans living there... Captured and enslaved them for his own good... Exploited the people and the Americas... Sold children into sexual slavery... And that's not even the extent to what he's done. Just a horrible man and I'm glad a lot more know the truth now.

Contrary to popular belief, he wasn't the first to arrive to America, he wasn't the first to conclude that the Earth was round. And to make things worse, he didn't even arrive to North America at all. Worst of all, he caused a genocide towards the native territory. And the truth is, Christopher Columbus is actually evil and should not be considered one of the greatest people of all time.

So overrated. He didn't even discover America first, (see my list top ten groups who crossed the Atlantic before columbus) and he was a horrible person

Let's see, he didn't discover the earth was round, he never set foot in America, he kidnapped and enslaved Natives, he basically had to beg the king to fund his voyage, and thought the earth was WAYY smaller than it actually is.

2 Kim Kardashian Kimberly Noel "Kim" Kardashian West is an American reality television personality, actress, socialite, businesswoman and model. more.

She has done absolutely nothing of value and has an idiot for a husband.

She is literally nothing...

People like her? Jeepers.

Really overrated, with all of her plastic surgery and bad attitude

3 Thomas Edison Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor.

Thomas Edition change our lives by opening up a company and hire scientist, technician and engineer to work in harsh environment with low pay, forcing them to research how to light a bulb while he seats comfortably at his office drinking coffee. When the bulb is light up he gain from it financially and fame although the "lighting up the bulb" wasn't he's doing nor work. Its was his employee who been working in harsh and dangerous laboratory to finally light the fire in that glass.

Let's see: he electrocuted innocent animals with AC, he killed one of his own patents with radiation poisoning, nearly blinded himself trying to show that X-rays could cure ailments like blindness and cared for nothing except to make money...

Yeah, definitely best scientist ever.

Thomas Edison didn't invent the lightbulb; he only improved it. Everything you learned about him in school was either very exaggerated or it never happened at all.

Yeah, he electrocuted an elephant just to prove his point: That AC was deadly; Tesla was better than him even though he was kind of sexist and racist.

4 Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt more.

Funny how people automatically assume you're racist for saying something negative about him, when I'm doing what MLK told us to do: judge people by content of character, not color of skin. He's the reason why our economy is the way it is, employment went down, and the media became manipulated by bias because of him. How do you think Hitler came into power? By manipulating the media.

"Oh, you're racist if you dare criticize my man, Obama, even if it's on his actions and not his color." Obama's fans make sports fans look like angels.
Real talk: his Obamacare tore the economy apart in the long term. Sadly, too many people are too blinded, ignorant, and stubborn to see this.

The only thing that he actually did was wreck half of the country with Obamacare. Let in millions of illegals and got us into a mess with ISIS. And people like him?

5 Muhammad Muhammad (570 AD - 632 AD) was an Arabian Prophet, best known as the central figure (and last prophet) of the Abrahamic religion of Islam and is amongst the most revered and important historical figures in the world.

He made an example, for whole mankind, to follow through his own life. He's a role model for all, who wanted to succeed in their lives. Best person ever!

Sorry to all the people who would be offended by the comment, but he did a lot of bad stuff.

Muhamad was just a stupid child molester and schizophrenic womanizer who killed hundreds and thousands people who didn't believed his lies. and nowaday ISIS and buoko haram are muhamads grand children

OK, I studied him. Worst ass ever!

6 Diana, Princess of Wales Diana, Princess of Wales, was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, who is the eldest child and heir apparent of Queen Elizabeth II.
7 Ronald Reagan Ronald Wilson Reagan (1911-2004) was an American politician and actor who was 40th President of the United States from 1981 to 1989 . Prior to his presidency, he was the 33rd Governor of California from 1967 to 1975, following a career as a Hollywood actor and union leader until his death in 2004

He may have helped us in the short term, but in the long term he created the blueprints for todays rightwing insanity.

Yes indeed, you left wingers are really on the ball!

He never did good

8 Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

I try my best not to include JB in here but since his fame were so skyrocketing (although half of them hate him) and he sold so many albums and had many die hard fangirls... I have no choice but to include him here as he is truly overrated. Sorry Justin you are overrated.

Putting Muhammed and Jesus on here is offensive to Christians and Muslims.

Chuck norris and Jesus should not even be in the list people!

He is literally a very very Normal person...nothing like a Celebrity,...and definitely not an Artist,AT ALL!

9 Mahatma Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India.

Gandhi has been spoken and praise to much, many people say his a "civil right" type of guy... By what? Protesting excessive land-taxes which every human in other country outside India is paying, by commenting offensive racial slur against African tribe culture and separating the Muslim and Hindu so that they could kill each other 50 years later...

India won independence thanks to Subhash Chandra Bose and WWII. Gandhi was ineffective as hell, unlike what you people believe

You westerners do not know hiw crazy and ineffective this guy was.

Gandhi wasn't that great as people say he is.
Everyone followed him at that time because he was the only that showed them the way but that doesn't mean that everything he do was right, every way he showed was right.
When India became independent, he had the choice along with Jawaharlal Nehru to prevent the partition of India into India and Pakistan, but he didn't do that.
That partition lead to thousands of people dying but he didn't care, because of that partition then now there's soo much conflict between the two countries killing each other's men, and that also lead to terrorism in Pakistan. I'm not saying it was all his mistake, there were many other evil and manipulative people that lead to this and Gandhi was NOT one of those but what he did back then indirectly lead to this situation now in Pakistan which also effect India a lot.
I know maybe even if the partition didn't happen, there would have been still conflicts and killing between Hindus and Muslims but through ...more

Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, more.

He is a bigot that spews garbage every time he opens his mouth...He has destroyed both the republican and the democratic countries, and the media won't stop reporting his crap. He will destroy the country once president, hopefully he wouldn't be president though.

Overrated horrible jerk who somehow brainwashed 40% of the population of America to believe his lies

14 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). more.

I do not hate the religion of Christianity but on the most influential people of all time Jesus was ranked #1 most influential person but Mohammad is more influential.

Jesus is just like Muhammad, a clone I say and the only different is one is a founder of Muslim and one is a founder of Christianity, they both pedophiles, murderer, liar and a hypocrite. The reason I put Jesus on top of Muhammad in this list is because since the population of Christians is more than Muslim... Than Jesus is more overrated than Muhammad.

He was a good man, and as a Christian I understand why he gets worshipped, it is part of their religion. But being also Jewish, it seems everyone expects you to love Jesus and cannot seem to respect the fact that there are other religions too.

Religion and the concept of deities is an illusion that has deceived mankind for thousands of years.

She is trash on two feet.

I hope she likes the heat since she sure is headed to the flames of hell

16 Hillary Clinton Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is an American politician who was a Democratic presidential candidate in the 2008 and 2016 elections.

She's insane, corrupted, and would've destroyed the US if she was elected. The Media may disagree, but what do they know? They probably get all of their news from celebrity gossip and Liberal Central Twitter.

17 Alexander the Great Alexander III of Macedon, commonly known as Alexander the Great, was a King of the Ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon and a member of the Argead dynasty.

Decades after her unexpected death, she has remained one of Hollywood's greatest sex symbols with her eye-catching style, champagne blond hair, and breathless manner of speaking. more.

She said anyone who thinks BLM is a terrorist organization is racist. Sure, a black supremacist and anti-white police group is an anti-racist organization. Kill me.

Ugly racist. She seems obsessed with other people's children.

Pedophile in denial
