Von Vargen passed away on March 5, aged 64.

2. Family Feud Contestant’s Inappropriate Gerbil Answer Everyone’s entitled to five minutes of fame, though for one Family Feud contestant, it’s unlikely this is the way she wanted to earn hers. In February, when told, ‘Name something a doctor pulls out of a person,’ her answer of ‘Gerbil’ unsurprisingly didn’t make the cut. It did however leave millions of people in hysterics around the world and earned her third place on Yahoo7’s most popular entertainment articles for the year.

3. Lamar Odom wakes from coma Sports star and Kardashian affiliate, Lamar Odom sent the world into a frenzy in October when he was found unconscious in a brothel and spent the proceeding three days in a coma.

4. Katie Price shows off natural chest Katie Price is used to attracting headlines for her chest, but this occasion was a little different. Previously known by her pseudo name, Jordan, Katie was renowned worldwide for her excessively large fake chest. When her chest made headlines on March 5 this year, it was for the opposite reason. She removed the enhancements and kept to her natural figure.

5. Chris Hemsworth paid off parents debts Just when we thought the world couldn’t love the Hemsworth brothers any more, Chris Hemsworth cued a collective ‘aww’ around the world on November 28 when he surprised his parents by paying off all their debts.
