Worst celebrity role models?

Results from survey of over 2,000 parents


This is a rush transcript from "The Five," June 20, 2013. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

BOB BECKEL, CO-HOST: Miley Cyrus says she can't be tamed, obviously, and parents think she's a bad role model for kids. A new survey asked more than 2,000 parents who they thought the worse celebrity role models were. For girls, it was Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian, there's a surprise, and Lindsay Lohan.

For boys, it was Chris Brown, Kanye West, and Justin Bieber.

Who do you pick?

ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: So earlier on, they asked me who I picked, I said Amanda Bynes, and who else did I say?

BECKEL: And Lil' Wayne.

BOLLING: Lil' Wayne.

BECKEL: Who's Amanda Bynes?

BOLLING: Lil' Wayne was the guy who stomped on the flag. We just played that yesterday. And Amanda Bynes is the one who was caught in her hotel room smoking pot, threw the bong over the side and claimed she wasn't doing it and then showed up in this wacky wig.

I think our Facebook people were on the same page.

BECKEL: Dana, what about you?

DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: Well, I don't care. No, I'm kidding.

I talked to a few friends today who are parents of pre-teens, teens, and they don't like these people anyway, so they don't think of them as role models. I think they think more of the reality TV stars and the singers on those programs are the once they're paying more attention to now.

BECKEL: Greg, you're a role model, I'm sure, for a lot of people.

GUTFELD: I'm a role model for a lot of people. I don't want to get into but I don't know who did this poll, but it's really easy to rag on, like, young celebrities because they're young, they get power and money and that turns them into monsters and they fall into the same pattern of phony rebellion and they're idiots.

It's braver for people who do these polls to say the best role model is your dad and your mother and let's condemn a culture that splits them up but no one will ever do to that because that's too judgmental. It easier to make fun of Miley Cyrus than say the culture sucks. They'd rather say the performer sucks rather than the culture that creates it.

ANDREA TANTAROS, CO-HOST: Or it's the culture makes fun of the dad and people think he's a doofus so they look to people like Lil' Wayne or Kanye west.

Someone asked me, is there one child star that made it that isn't a total mess?

GUTFELD: Jodie Foster.

TANTAROS: Jodie Foster, Justin Timberlake, as well. He's one of the very few.


TANTAROS: Child stars, I should say, they never grow up. And we have this fascination with, you know, being a kid and what they do and how they behave.

GUTFELD: What was she?

BOLLING: She sang.

GUTFELD: Oh, really?

TANTAROS: Melissa Francis.

GUTFELD: Dana was a professional wrestler. You were little Dana.



PERINO: I don't understand this about Kim Kardashian because actually, if you want your kid to be successful for not having a lot of C- students, she is extremely smart, a great entrepreneur, apparently she's very savvy.

GUTFELD: Wait, do you remember what she got famous for?

PERINO: I know why she got famous. But I'm willing to forgive.


BECKEL: Let me turn to --

PERINO: Or I don't care, actually.

BECKEL: As far as I'm concerned, Lindsay Lohan goes down in my book as the worst role model, not necessarily because of her addiction. It's because the people around her keep pushing her out. They send her to rehab, she gets out, goes back, gets out, then she becomes somebody talking about how important it is to get into rehab.

I mean, give me a break. This girl is in serious trouble and I don't think she'll be alive five years from now.

TANTAROS: And now girls were reality stars like this 16 and pregnant girls on MTV. There's one named Farren, she has made a sex tape so she can be like Kim Kardashian, because they think it's the quickest way to make money --

PERINO: I know one who did well, what about Michael J. Fox? Child star. Right?

GUTFELD: Why are you asking, Bob?

BECKEL: I don't know. It's true.

TANTAROS: I'm thinking more like --

BECKEL: "One More Thing" is up next.
