Finding the world's ugliest celebrity endorser

A friend and regular reader suggested, after seeing Duke basketball Coach Mike Krzyzewski shilling for Chevy, that he is the world's ugliest celebrity endorser. The gauntlet thrown, I picked it up and tried it on for size.

(I should say here that for the purposes of this debate, I am only considering folks who were famous before they did their ads.)

Coach K. is a little rough around the edges, but I would offer that Dick Vitale is uglier in his DiGiorno's pizza ads. Let's not forget William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy for PriceLine. They're both pretty ugly.

And what about Diana Taurasi in that coffee ad, and showboat Lindsey Jacobellis for Dunkin' Donuts?

The prize, however, must go to the Postmaster General, Wilford Brimley, who gets his diabetes supplies from Liberty Medical, and wants you to as well.

Your thoughts?

What about Paris Hilton in her Carl's Jr. ad? Not only is she ugly (focus on the face) but she's a walking STD. And that's just not attractive.
