Kardashian’s top blinkbox “frightening family” poll

To mark the arrival of the latest instalment of Game of Thrones, which sees seven warring families fight a bloody battle for supremacy, movie and TV streaming service blinkbox asked the nation which TV family they’d least like to have as neighbours.

KIM KARDASHIAN and her motley crew’s high profile antics saw them come out on top, picking up one in five votes (21%) – a whopping three times more than the bloody-thirsty, rampaging LANNISTER family from Game of Thrones.

In second place came notorious Albert Square rogues the MITCHELLS from Eastenders (12%). Residing in third place are Ozzy and Sharon’s clan, The OSBOURNES (11%).

While modern TV families fared much worse in the poll, seizing the top spots, blasts from TV’s past came lower down the list. The Trotters, Carringtons and Waltons occupy the last three spots in the top 10.

The survey was conducted by OnePoll to mark the arrival of Games of Thrones season 4 to blinkbox today (17 June).

“Frightening families are central to some of the best TV drama and none come scarier than the Lannisters – or so we thought,” says Adrian Letts, Managing Director of blinkbox Movies & TV. “We were shocked to find that more people would be worried about living next door to the Kardashians than the Lannisters who orchestrated the infamous Red Wedding in the last series of Game of Thrones. It remains to be seen whether we’ll see the Kardashians make an appearance as the new family moving to Westeros to shake things up a bit.”
