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.

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.

He did not discover America. He did not discover that the world was round. He killed all the Indians. Why are teachers praising him?

2 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.

3 Muhammad Muhammad ibn Abdullah (570 AD - 632 AD) was an Arab religious, social, and political leader and the founder of the world religion of Islam. According to Islamic doctrine, he was a prophet, divinely inspired to preach and confirm the monotheistic teachings of Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets. He is believed to be the Seal of the Prophets within Islam. Muhammad united Arabia into a single Muslim polity, with the Quran as well as his teachings and practices forming the basis of Islamic religious belief.

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!

4 Kim Kardashian Kimberly Noel "Kim" Kardashian West is an American reality television personality, actress, socialite, businesswoman and model. Along with her sisters, she is well known for her stupidity and for all the plastic surgery procedures she's had over the years. She is also known for her infamous show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" that aired on TV from 2007 - 2021.

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

5 Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan (born 15 August 1967) is an Indian guru, music producer, singer-songwriter, actor, filmmaker, and convicted rapist. He has been the head of the social group Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS) since 1990. ...read more.

He is a convicted rapist who gets praised like a god.

6 Winston Churchill Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, and a writer.

Winston Churchill should be higher up!
I appreciate all of his great achievements, but he wasn't the best person around at all. He treated Indians horribly and let thousands of them starve to death!
What are Jesus and Moses doing up there? At least, they didn't let people starve to death. They cared for all of us and tried to make the world a better place for everyone to live!

He was a good speaker

7 Mother Teresa Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997), also known as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, was an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary. Although her passport name was Mary Teresa Bojaxhiu, she was born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, in Üsküb—now Skopje, capital of North Macedonia. After living in Skopje for eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived for most of her life. On September 5th, 2016, Pope Francis Canonized Mother Teresa, making her St. Teresa of Calcutta.

One of the pillars of western propaganda.

She doesn't deserve her saint status.

She is god I love her

8 Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is an American politician who served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017.

A member of the Democratic Party, he previously served as a U.S. senator from Illinois from 2005 to 2008 and as an Illinois state senator from 1997 to 2004.

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?

9 Diana, Princess of Wales Diana, Princess of Wales (born Lady Diana Frances Spencer; 1 July 1961 - 31 August 1997), was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, who is the eldest child and heir apparent of Queen Elizabeth II, and the mother of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex. She married Prince Charles on 29 July 1981, and separated from him in 1992 before finally divorcing him in 1996. She was killed in a car crash on 31 August 1997.

Especially with all those people decrying the Queen's death and using Diana as justification

Kim Kardashian of 80s.

10 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

The Contenders

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!

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

13 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 ...more

15 Joseph Garrett Joseph Garrett, known on YouTube as stampylonghead, is an English YouTuber who posts videos about the Sandbox Video Game Minecraft as the character Stampy. His Youtube channel was created in August 3 2006 and is still making videos in 2021.

He sucks eggs

16 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).

According To The Christian Bible, Jesus' purpose on Earth was redemption and salvation. While He was on Earth he healed the sick, brought the dead back to life, forgave sins, died on the cross for the world, and gave us a pathway to salvation.

He went to Jerusalem with His Apostles to celebrate the Passover for the last time, and it was there, that He was betrayed, handed over to the Sanhedrin, and sentenced to be condemned to death. He was given over to Pontius Pilate to be crucified. While He was dying on the cross, he prayed to His father to forgive those who wished for this cruel death for Him. Then on the Third Day, He had risen again. ...read more.

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.

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.

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

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.

19 Osama bin Laden Osama Bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden was a Saudi Arabian-born stateless terrorist. He was a founder of al-Qaeda, the organization that claimed responsibility for the September 11 attacks on the United States, along with numerous other mass-casualty attacks against civilian and military targets worldwide.

He's not overrated nor underrated he was terrible!

20 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.

Her songs are decent at best but who she is as a person is terribly awful.

Not inappropriate like most of today's artists but overrated as hell.

24 Paris Hilton Paris Whitney Hilton is an American businesswoman, socialite, television personality, model, actress, singer, DJ, and author.
