    U.S. adults would most like to be neighbors with country music power couple Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton in 2013, according to the sixth annual Zillow® Celebrity Neighbor Survey.

    The cast of the reality TV show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was among the least desirable neighbors of 2012. We guess the survey respondents didn't redneckognize and don't want to drink go-go juice.

    Meanwhile, 45 percent of surveyed adults said they would not want to live next to any celebrities listed in the poll, up slightly from 42 percent last year. The annual Zillow survey asks U.S. adults which celebrities they would most like to be their neighbor, and with whom they wouldn't want to share a fence.

    Most Desirable Neighbors for 2013

    In the coming year, 10 percent of adults surveyed would like to be neighbors with country couple Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. The couple's popularity was significantly higher among females (13 percent) compared with males (7 percent).

    Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift tied for second place, each receiving 9 percent of the vote. Young adults surveyed (ages 18-34) preferred to live next to Swift (12 percent) rather than Witherspoon (7 percent). However, married respondents slightly preferred to share a fence with Witherspoon (10 percent) over the young pop star (8 percent).

    With 8 percent of the vote, talk show host Jon Stewart was voted the third most desirable neighbor for 2013, grabbing a significantly higher male vote (10 percent) than female vote (6 percent).

    Worst Neighbors for 2012

    The cast of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo topped the list of worst neighbors for the year. More than 1 in 5 (21 percent) surveyed Americans found the cast of the reality show, which follows Georgia-based child beauty pageant contestant Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and her family, to be the most undesirable neighbors of 2012.

    Eighteen percent of respondents found couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to be the worst neighbors, while 12 percent would least like to be neighbors with Donald Trump. Both "Kimye" and Trump ranked higher on the worst neighbors list by large margins compared to competitors Lance Armstrong (2 percent) and Clint Eastwood (2 percent).

    "This year we noticed a trend on the worst-neighbor side; for three years in a row now, the casts of reality television shows have dominated the top of our worst celebrity neighbor list. Not surprisingly, celebrities with full-time camera crews, in addition to paparazzi, aren't America's top choices to live next door," said Zillow Chief Marketing Officer Amy Bohutinsky." But it isn't just reality television stars that are getting the neighbor boot. Most people don't want to live next to any celebrity, regardless of why they are famous. In fact, more people voiced their desire not to have a celebrity neighbor in 2013 than in any of the past years we've run this poll."

    Which celeb would like to reside next to? What do you think of these survey results?
