If you had to live next door to a celebrity, (trust us, it could be a chore–remember Paris Hilton?) who would you choose?

In a new survey published on Tuesday, Americans said they’d like most like to live next door to Sarah Palin and Oprah Winfrey. The celebrity most likely to be booted off the block: Britney Spears!

The Republican vice presidential candidate and self-admitted "hockey mom" topped the list of most desirable neighbors with 14 percent of the vote, followed by Oprah, who was particularly popular with women.

Olympic champion swimmer Michael Phelps, who was heavily favored by men, came in third with 9 percent.

So who made the list of least desirable neighbors? Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and David and Victoria Beckham. Oh—nobody wanted to live next door to Rosie O’Donnell or Joe the Plumber either.

The poll was commissioned by real estate Web site Zillow.com between Dec 15-17 with 2,196 Americans aged over 18.
