— 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 (28 percent of them) would apparently rather stare out an airplane window than hear her chatter.
Trailing closely, however, is Charlie Sheen (26 percent), a celebrity not known for editing his thoughts. Gary Busey (20 percnet) and Lindsay Lohan (15 percent) were No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, with Snooki's "Jersey Shore" co-star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino (11 percent) coming in at No. 5.
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, Ellen DeGeneres reigns in the daytime talk-show host category, and Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa are seatmates of choice from the morning-show host category.
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. The contest ends at midnight on May 11.
"There will be a drawing for each of the 13 vacations available in FriendTrips ... on May 12," said Devon Nagle, a spokesperson for Expedia." A formal announcement will take place some time thereafter."
