I was reading a frihost forums thread called Don't hate, educate!!! Most loved man in the world - who? (http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-65411.html) It's a very interesting thread in the way that readers would reply with a man's (or deity's) name and then at the same time add why they might also not be liked. I didn't reply to the thread because I am an American and my likes and dislikes mostly revolve around television people or sports figures and my perspective would be too limited.
I think the most loved man in America is Regis Philbin. Regis has been a TV legend for over 50 years and you'd think that someone that popular would have detractors just to be contrary. He doesn't. I've never heard anyone disparage him.
Talkshow hosts all love him, Letterman, Leno and Conan all have them on their shows anytime he wants to come on. The three of them don't like each other much but they all seem to have stories of hanging out with the guy.
There has been no scandal, there have been no unearthed secrets. The man is a saint. And hilarious. I can't think of another celebrity with such a reputation. Can you?
- I didn't think so.
