Charlie Sheen Most Entertaining person of the year

Charlie Sheen took the entertainment world by storm earlier this year when he was fired from ‘Two And a Half Men’, and subsequently went on a media rampage to defend himself, and get his money back.

However, TV’s biggest star didn’t just stop there. He decided to take his one-liners from TV interviews to the stage, and went on his very own ‘Violent Torpedo of Truth’ tour, which received mixed reviews, but was a huge media draw. On top of that, his now infamous ABC interview became the subject of many internet parodies, which gave him inspiration to do his own. Sheen completed a ridiculous re-cut of his ABC interview, which attained millions of views and further boosted the star’s already ridiculous 24/7 coverage.

Then, on the success of a whirlwind media frenzy, Sheen took to twitter, and gained 1 million followers in less than 24 hours, breaking a world record. He then used his twitter account to gather support for his shows, his ideas, and remained in the spotlight for months. He eventually clawed back over $25 million from his former bosses on episodes he would have done if he hadn’t had been fired due to his crazy off-screen antics.

Sheen’s iconic catch phrases ‘winning’, ‘bi-winning’, and ‘bi-polar’, became the coolest one-liners, imitated by many, including young celebrities like Justin Bieber. The popularity swing for Sheen is probably one of the most entertaining stories I have ever seen. Not everyone will agree with this since Sheen has a bad image of past drug abuse and paying for ‘adult services’, but the story of his life has been one of the most thrilling in living memory.
