The List Superlative Game: And The Best Superlatives Are . . .

In Siobhan Vivian’s novel The List (catch an excerpt on Figment for a limited time now!), the fates of a handful of high school girls are determined when their names are listed as the hottest or the ugliest girls in the school.

As a light-hearted interpretation of the theme, we asked you to submit some (less judgey) superlatives of your own on the forums, and boy, did you guys deliver. Keep reading for some of the best and funniest pop-culture-themed nominations that you came up with for our given categories, plus a few categories you devised yourselves.
