Who are the 10 most Googled people in the USA?

After a tumultuous 2016, it was anyone’s guess at who could be the most searched humans in the nation, but one guarantee was president-elect Donald J. Trump. With 2016 bringing one of the wildest elections in history, it also comes as no surprise that Trump’s rival who actually won the popular vote in November, Hillary Clinton, was No. 2.

America’s lovable, yet angry grandpa Bernie Sanders also made the list, while the rest of the most searched people were athletes and a television star not named Trump.

There were Olympians, a star NFL quarterback and one NBA player who broke the heart of an entire city.
