A much-mocked 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian gets you on the list of the 10 most disliked pro athletes in America. Kris Humphries — who also didn't exactly insinuate himself into the good graces of Kourtney & Kim Take New York viewers — ranks fifth in a survey done by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research. (For what it's worth, the 27-year-old New Jersey Nets forward is having his best year on the court, averaging 13.4 points and 10.4 rebounds per game.)

Ratings: Implosion of Kim Kardashian's marriage helps set series record

Tiger Woods, whose mere participation in a golf tournament used to increase its TV ratings, also makes the list (published by Forbes) at No. 2, showing what a sex scandal and an ugly divorce can do to tarnish the sheen.

Topping the list? Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, whose efforts to redeem himself after going to prison for operating a dog-fighting ring, have apparently not been successful. Another NFL player, New York Jets receiver Plaxico Burress, who shot himself in the leg and did time for illegal gun possession, is the third most disliked pro athlete. And an NFL star stands at No. 4 — Ndamukong Suh, the Detroit Lions defensive lineman who stomped on an opponent's head while he was down on Thanksgiving.

Rounding out the list (in order): LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Terrell Owens (the subject of reality TV's The T.O. Show), Alex Rodriguez and Kurt Busch.

Do they all deserve to be on the list? Who would you nominate?
