rnrnMark Zuckerberg may be Time’s Person Of The Year, but you have to do a lot more than siphon our intellectual property rights and be played by Jesse Eisenberg in a guaranteed award-show sweeper to make our short-list. No, we prefer to acknowledge those who made us laugh, made us hot and made us think about how hot and funny they were. The celebrities—and celebrity body parts—praised below may not have revolutionized the internet, but they certainly made it a more entertaining place to surf. Click on the jump to find out who each TheFABLife contributor thinks defined fabulosity in 2010.rnrnrnrnrnrnROBERT PATTINSON by Lauren DeimanrnrnRobert Pattinson (Photos) was undoubtedly the Person/Obsession of many, many TwiHards’ Year in 2010. With every dazed stare, modest giggle, and lusty glance towards Kristen Stewart, this man flutters the heart like no other working actor today. The gorgeous Brit has perfected [awkwardly] working a red carpet in his flawlessly-tailored suits and signature finger combs. Hundreds of blogs have made documenting Robsten’s relationship their full-time job, losing their collective sh*t over each hooded airport dash and lingering onset kiss.rnrnWith the rumors of 12-hour shoots for the glorious Breaking Dawn sex scenes, it’s certain RPattz will remain in our dreams through 2011…and again in 2012.rnrnrnDOUBLE RAINBOW GUY by Matt MurornrnLet’s talk about Paul Vasquez, aka “Hungry Bear,” aka “Yosemite Bear,” aka “Double Rainbow Guy.” But first, a question. What’s sillier: Waiting in line for an entire day to be among the first iPhone 4 owners or marveling for an hour at a spectacular natural phenomenon? Or: Crying hysterically at the sight of Justin Bieber doin’ the “Dougie” or weeping in existential wonder at the sight of a double rainbow stretched out with Yosemite in the backdrop? You get the point.rnrnAnd yet Double Rainbow Guy is a total freak, right? Double Rainbow Guy’s video is “baffling” and “hilariously over-the-top.” Double Rainbow Guy was “probably on mushrooms” and entered “crazypants mode.” Double Rainbow Guy “needs to be on medication.” This isn’t to say Double Rainbow Guy’s video wasn’t hilariously over the top. It was, and the humor isn’t lost on us. But let’s keep his wild enthusiasm in perspective.rnrnWhile we wish Double Rainbow Guy had used his fame to become a modern day John Muir or John James Audubon instead of hocking Windows Live for Microsoft, his antics sparked countless entertaining spoofs and Auto-Tuned remixes. Double Rainbow Guy: We love you for both loving nature and providing us with the hardest laugh of 2010.rnrnrnrnKANYE WEST’S TWITTER FEED by Halle KieferrnrnOne thing for sure: it has been an huge year for Mr. West. Whether he’s coming out of hiding following the TSI (Taylor Swift Incident), apologizing for no reason to George Bush, or just relaxing on his couch with his phoenix, Kanye has had more ups and down than the rollercoaster he probably had installed in his laundry room. But the truth is, there’s no way we would have known about all with out West’s trusty buddy and secret lover, Twitter. Always stream-of-consciousness and in all caps SO YOU KNEW HE REALLY MEANT IT, @KanyeWest guaranteed that everything Kanye said was the #greatesttweetofalltime. Even if it wasn’t, at least the entire world got to read it, and really, isn’t that the most important thing of all?rnrnrnrnNICKI MINAJ by Crystal PucciornrnThere is one Barbie lady that continues to entertain as 2010 comes to a close: Nicki Minaj. We should be more specific — Nicki Minaj’s facial expressions take the cake in the entertainment department. Sure, her effortless rhymes, meteoric rise, and various identities are all parts of what make Nicki so fascinating, but her facial contortions are the most fun thing to watch. How does someone have that many facial options in their repertoire? Does she stare in the mirror for hours on end scaring herself into new mugs or is the world through her eyes is as colorful and cartoony as she dresses? In that case, our faces might be doing the same. Her unique voice and eclectic style aside, Nicki Minaj’s limitless collection of surprised facial expressions are what make her one of our favorite people of 2010.rnrnrnrnJIMMY FALLON by Liz BlackrnrnLike everyone else in the world who heard that Jimmy Fallon would be Conan O’Brien’s late night replacement, I cringed. Didn’t we all burn out on Fallon’s inappropriate giggles and dumb sketch-songs from SNL? Yes, we did. So while Fallon was trying to find his footing in 2009, he totally proved himself in 2010. Fallon rejuvenated the late night talk show format, turning his own sketches into viral videos, taking stale guest interviews to a new level (why talk to Justin Timberlake when you can sing with Justin Timberlake?), and making a Neil Young impression a thing of beauty.rnrnMost importantly though, is the fact that Fallon stayed objective and positive throughout the Great Conan-Leno war of 2010, proving that even though he’s part of their club, he’s a new breed. He’s not bitter, he’s not competing with anyone else, and the Internet is clearly his friend. (Cut to Jay Leno still making jokes about how hard it is to program the VCR. Ugh.) I’m as surprised as anyone that I’ve taken to his show this much, but in the midst of all the late-night drama, Fallon came out as the clear winner.rnrnrnrnJOEL MCHALE by Anthony Cohan-MicciornrnConsidering all the fascinating reality programming and groundbreaking original series that asked for our attention in 2010, it’s amazing one man was able to be at the forefront of both. Cracking wise as the host of The Soup since 2004, Joel McHale has spotlighted the best in unscripted schaedenfreude, setting the tone for the rest of us wry rubberneckers. Amazingly, McHale continues to serve as reality’s ringmaster despite starring in NBC’s groundbreaking sitcom Community. Riffing on everything from shoot-em-ups to Christmas specials without losing sight of the emotional connections between the cast members, Community is managing the quality of classic Simpsons episodes less than two seasons in—a feat that’s even more impressive considering it’s live-action. If you believe TV has room for both drunken attention whores and quality creative work, Joel McHale is your patron saint.rnrnrnrnKATY PERRY’S BOOBS by Mark GrahamrnrnLooking back at the year that was, two things really stuck out: Katy Perry’s boobs! Hardly a day went by in 2010 when we didn’t get a teasing glance at the world’s most famous (and familiar) bosom. Ubiquity aside, her cleavage managed to stir controversy on more than one occasion, most memorably when parents rallied to get her seduction of Elmo banned from PBS. Most impressively, though, we learned that her breasts are capable of producing both fireworks AND jets of whipped cream, depending on the occasion. Is there anything that Katy Perry’s breasts CAN’T do? We hope we never find out.rnrnrnrnIAN SOMERHALDER by Ambika MuttoornrnIn the era of Robert Pattinson, the sparkliest vampire of them all, it takes a very brave man to step up and put a pair of fangs on. A lesser man would crumble in RPattz wake. But Ian Somerhalder is not a lesser man. He’s a beautiful one, and an incredible smart vampire to boot. He’s taken on being the only vampire who matters on the small screen as opposed to on film, deftly creating his own space.rnrnAnyone who’s seen his onscreen persona, Damon Salvatore, smolder off a television screen on The Vampire Diaries, now knows that “vampire” is the equivalent to hot. But where Ian excels is in making evil look so good. What also makes his character so interesting, apart from Ian playing him so brilliantly, is that he’s also the conflicted vampire. Damon has sensitive shades, especially when it comes to his unrequited love, Nina Dobrev’s character, Elena. In a vanilla world, if anyone can swing from good to bad and back again with such pizazz, they have our vote. On another note, Ian Somerhalder is also an environmentalist crusader with his own foundation. He’s hot, he’s a vampire, and he’s humanitarian. You can’t beat that. Ian, if you’re reading this, you know how to get in touch!
