As 2012 comes to a close, it’s time to look back fondly at a year jam-packed with celebrities showing their underwear in public. Celebrity underwear sightings are updated weekly at The Underwear Expert so that you can keep tabs on who is wearing what, who is looking great and who needs some serious undies advice. With the dozens of underwear sightings this year, it was tough to narrow them down, but we’ve come up with a list of the top 5 celebrity underwear sightings of 2012. These were the most controversial, interesting, hilarious or popular sightings of the year. Check out our top 5 sightings below and let us know which was your favorite.
5. Chord Overstreet
He’s the new guy on Glee, but he quickly became a fan favorite thanks to his charm, good looks and goofy attitude. Chord Overstreet strapped on a jock to impersonate Bane from The Dark Knight Rises.
4. Zac Efron
Speaking of high schoolers in musicals, Zac Efron spent whole scenes of The Paperboy in his whitey tighties earlier this year. He manages to make the period-correct underwear work!
3. Mark Wahlberg
For many, Mark Wahlberg is the ultimate celebrity/underwear model. He is pretty much responsible for the popularity of Calvin Klein briefs. This year, he showed us that he can still look great in a pair of black briefs.
2. Mario Lopez
Things are going well for Mario Lopez. He’s got several cool jobs, he has a sweet daughter and a brand-new wife. He also has two underwear lines. Here he’s showing off his own Rated M briefs.
1. Justin Bieber
For many, Justin Bieber is a fairly obnoxious pop star that we just have to tolerate. For others, like those girls in the front row, he is greatest hope for fallen world. No matter where you land on Bieber, he showed off his underwear enough times this year to land him a top spot on our list. Congrats, little guy.
