The 18 Most Irritating Men Over 50

Enough with these guys. They may be rich, successful, good-looking, talented, or even smart, but it’s time they change their acts or take lengthy sabbaticals.

1. Alec Baldwin

You’re just a blowhard, through and through.

2. Bruce Jenner

We can introduce you to hundreds of plastic surgeons who know what they’re doing.

3. Vladimir Putin

You’re more dramatic than any Real Housewife.

4. Prince Charles

Smile, she’ll die someday!

5. George Clooney

We’re sick of you parading around your flavor-of-the-month girlfriends.

6. Martin Scorsese

Stop acting surprised every time you win an award.

7. Matt Lauer

You’re trying too hard. Free Willie to take your place.

8. Chris Christie

You’ve taken A Bridge Too Far.

9. Simon Cowell

Your cockiness routine is getting tired.

10. Joe Scarborough

If you became POTUS, women would have to run for the hills.

11. Michael Lohan

Lindsay is a shining light compared to you.

12. Dr. Phil

No comment necessary.

13. The Allstate Guy (Dennis Haysbert)

We don’t care what Allstate’s stand is.

14. Karl Lagerfeld

Enough with the white ponytail and sunglasses (not to mention the rest of your getup).

15. John Travolting

“Adele Dazeem.”

16. Woody Allen

You’re just a sleaze.

17. Bob Costas

Your pink eye was the last straw.

18. Bill Maher

A model, a neuroscientist and a Playboy cybergirl couldn’t stomach anything about you. Neither can we.

Which of them is your
least favorite?

  • Lydia K. Fox

    Had the biggest laugh of my day over this list which I had to show to my 16 yr. old granddaughter and 14 yr. old grandson whom I am raising. They wanted to see why I was laughing and screaming at the computer! And the comments too were great. I really do think you should definitely add DONALD TRUMP. I sorta like
    Dr. Phil, even though I don’t always agree with him. I’m a 73 yr old retired wife, mom, grandma, raising 4 grandkids 16 to 10.
    I gag when Trump, Clooney, and Baldwin appear on my tv. Too much for this mamaw to take.

      Hi Lydia,

      So happy this made you laugh. Would love to do an interview with you on what it’s like raising four grandkids, three of them teenagers. (Heaven help you :) If you’re interested, email me at geri@faboverfifty.com.

      Best,

  • LINDA

    Leave them all on but George Clooney! He is just soooo fine to look at I do not care who his flavor of the month is.

  • Jennifer Clendenin

    Yes I agree with this list but think you forgot Bill O’Reily!!!

  • Dorinda M. Hallenbeck

    I attended a political event at least 14 years ago with my husband who was there as a work related invitation. It was a lobster cookout, under tents in Hyannis, Ma. at the Kennedy Compound and home of the late Teddy Kennedy. Alec Baldwin was also there ( with about 200 others) looking very over weight, unshaven, and surly. With all the courage I could muster I said hello to him and flashed my best smile. He responded with nothing but the meanest look possible and kept moving…doesn’t that just say who he is….RUDE !

  • kelly l

    Tough to choose just one-but-it’s Bill Maher. Just a downright jerk.

  • E j Hochreiter

    Bill Maher is a godless twerp with a false righteous attitude

  • Barbara M.

    Okay, this was THE best article you’ve ever written!! I love all your choices. I did like Simon Cowell UNTIL he got the best friend’s ex-wife pg. and I sometimes can deal with Dr. Phil, but I personally think George Clooney is still in the closet and that’s why the girls hang around, maybe he’s safer than we know? LOL! LOVE this~

    • http://www.faboverfifty.com Geri Brin

      Hi Barbara M,

      Thank you. So happy you like this list. We had fun putting it together. Five of us had fun creating it, ranging from a 24 year old man to a FOF woman (ME!)

      Geri

  • Linda F.

    Maybe one or two might be taken off the list, but mostly you’ve hit it right on the mark!

  • gina

    Fantastic on all of them !! I will say though I actually don’t mind Simon Cowell all that much.

  • Isabel J

    BILL MAHER

  • genevie

    ha! ( that was a loud laugh…..) i adore your honesty! i agree with ALL & i could add many more. thank you for making me laugh and the truth of your wording .

  • Nancy

    Whomever wrote this seems to have a man problem,bitter,bitter, bitter?

    • http://www.faboverfifty.com Geri Brin

      Hi Nancy,

      We hope everyone approaches these lists with a bit of a sense of humor. I don’t think any of the five of us who wrote it have man problems, but we respect your opinion.

      Best,
      Geri

      • Nancy Voelker

        That’s great!!! I applaud your choices, but more importantly, your senses of humor. You all prove that after a certain age, life is about keeping it real, simple, and doing so with a touch of levity. Keep it up!!!

  • Donna

    Can’t stomach Bill Maher or Alec Baldwin, both are disgusting. Agee with the author’s comments on all the others, except Joe Scarborough. Then again, maybe you know something that I don’t. Lol!

  • Cynthia

    Bill Maher has run his course. He just gets more and more snarky as the years go by. I believe the man has incredible insecurity issues. He needs to GO AWAY!!!

  • Janice

    Love, love the list. A+++ list as a matter of fact. Could not possibly pick the biggest loser as they are all pretty equal. Plllbbbttthhh!

  • Becky

    Karl Lagerfield…….may be good at what he does but his demeanor is irritating

  • Christine Norman

    Bob Costas – made himself look like a (blank) with his comments at the Olympics.

  • Patricia

    Sophomoric and classless.

  • Margaret

    Ugh that smug and curt Matt Lauer. Where’s the talent there??

  • Mary Beth

    Bill Maher makes my teeth hurt. From gritting them…. Glad so many agree!

  • http://www.bessheitner.com Bess Heitner

    How could you leave out the obnoxious Donald? He trumps them all!

    • http://www.faboverfifty.com Geri Brin

      Hi Bess,

      We were going to put him in, but decided against it because he’s been undercover lately. We’re hoping he stays out of sight.

      Best,
      Geri

  • Bettie Claxton

    Good selection. I’d choose Dr. Phil as #1.

  • Erin Worthington

    What? No Dr. Oz? A bigger shill than Dr. Phil! I have to disagree with Dennis Haysbert (mostly because I work for Allstate) but to me, he will always be Sorano from Major League!

    • http://www.faboverfifty.com Geri Brin

      Hi Erin,

      We were thinking of Dr. Oz, but had to stop somewhere :) We love Allstate but are tired of him in the commercial (although it must be quite effective, I assume).

      G.

  • Kathleen Robertazzo

    I think it’s an 8-way tie. Vladimir Putin and John Travolta shouldn’t be on the list.

  • Debbe McNeal

    So awesome!!!

  • Chrissy Simms

    Can’t wait for Joe Buck to turn 50 so we can throw him in this group of egoistic nutjobs!!

  • LoriAnn

    By far Woody Allen….but where is that ridiculous Donald Trump? Oh wait…isn’t he in his 60’s?

  • Bryn

    Alec Baldwin (and I thought it was just me!) and Woody Allen, who makes my skin crawl.
