"Paris and Pam routinely jump in and out of the top spot on our Lycos 50 weekly list and Britney Spears is never far behind," a Lycos spokesman said in a news release. "But this marks the first time in the history of The Lycos 50 year-end list, that three women make up the top three most-searched terms of the year."
Eminem was the most-searched man of 2005 while knocked off the list were President George W. Bush, actor Orlando Bloom and Lakers star Kobe Bryant. The president garnered "less interest online than Scooby-Doo," Lycos noted.
The most searched TV show was "The Simpsons" while Hurricane Katrina was the most-searched news event of the year.
