Some years, there are a number of duds, and there is some debate over which celeb fell on their face the toughest.
This yr, nonetheless, there isn’t any want for argument, as all the world is in settlement that Tori Spelling claimed the highest spot with a gag that was each offensive and wildly unfunny!
It began when Tori posted the picture above.
