World's Worst Travel Companion: Snooki

Newsvine: Poor Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi can't catch a break. She's earned the dubious distinction of least favorite travel companion in an ongoing Expedia.com Facebook poll.

The 23-year-old won fame and disdain on the MTV reality show "Jersey Shore" and even has her own line of slippers, but voters would apparently rather stare out an airplane window than hear her chatter.

Trailing closely, however, is Charlie Sheen, a celebrity not known for editing his thoughts. Gary Busey and Lindsay Lohan were No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, with Snooki's "Jersey Shore" co-star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino coming in at No. 5.

The poll results are as of April 29.

Alas, winners in Expedia's promotional contest don't actually get to travel with such famous egos. Instead, each gets to go with five Facebook friends on one of 13 luxury vacations to such locales as Las Vegas, St. Vincent, South America, Europe, Australia, South Korea and Tahiti. The online travel company is offering more than $1 million in luxury trips as part of its FriendTrips Game on Facebook.

Participants also get to vote, more kindly, on other potential travel companions. Chelsea Handler is the current leader in the favorite late-night host travel companion category, and Ellen DeGeneres reigns in the daytime talk-show host category. And which morning-show hosts would voters most like to share a seat row with? Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa.
