DList map

The United States is a celebrity-obsessed country, and not only for A-list celebs like Beyoncé and Brad Pitt. Americans are keenly interested in our lesser-known celebrities, those who dwell on the outskirts of stardom, or grasp at fame on reality TV shows, or have seen their star fade significantly over the years. America as a whole loves it some D-list celebrities, but there are geographical differences when it comes to choosing favorites.

Estately set out to map these differences by using Google Trends to determine which states Google certain D-list celebrities more than any other state. To be clear, the list below does not represent what D-list celebrities each state Googles the most, it simply shows which ones each state Googles more frequently than the other 49 states and the District of Columbia.
