Germans may love David Hasselhoff, but David Hasselhoff loves Germany too

Quick – what country do you admire most?

Does “America” come immediately to mind, or do you find yourself immediately thinking of every country other than America, just to see if there is a country that you think you admire more than America?

You’d be surprised at how many people DON’T admire America around the world.  Or maybe this doesn’t surprise you after all, especially if you’ve spent any time travelling abroad.

Because according to SURVEY BY THE BBC ON A COUNTRY’S LIKABILITY, America isn’t even anywhere close to being at the top of the list.

Nope, the most admired country is GERMANY, and by a fairly large margin.

Rounding out the TOP 5 MOST ADMIRED COUNTRIES behind Germany were Canada, the UK, Japan, and France.

Out of a list of 17 countries, America ranked 8th.

Towards the bottom of the list were Iran, Pakistan, and North Korea.
