Sun Ho voted 2012's least admired personality in survey

In a survey taken by 200 participants in Jan 2013, Sun Ho has been voted Singapore's Least Admired personality. The survey incuded both international and local personalities and was conducted by YourPersonalBrand.com, a division of BrandHub.

Sun Ho, a Singapore-based singer and co-founder of City Harvest Church, was one of the most talked-about figures in 2012. Her husband, City Harvest Church senior pastor Kong Hee and five other key ministry leaders were arrested and charged in June 2012 with conspiring to cheat the church of millions of dollars.

Despite the controversy surrounding her, she was listed in both the Most and Least Admired in Singapore lists, taking 10th spot in the Most Admired list alongside celebrities like Michelle Chong and Stefanie Sun.

Coming in second after Sun Ho on the Least Admired list is Cecilia Sue, followed by Michael Palmer, Ng Boon Gay, Kong Hee, Amy Cheong, Howard Shaw, Alvin Tan, Tey Tsun Hang and Laura Ong.

Actress Michelle Chong topped Singapore's Most Admired list followed by Mr George Yeo, Adrian Pang, Tanya Chua, Mr Peter Lim, Mr Lee Hsien Loong, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Mr Low Thia Kiang, Stefanie Sun and Kong Hee, who tied for 10th place with wife Sun Ho.
