The Most-Searched Wikipedia Articles of 2019 Are The Windows To Our Collective Soul, Not Eyes


If you've ever wanted to understand humanity on a mass scale, then looking at the list of the Most-Searched Wikipedia Articles of 2019 would be a good start.

Turns out we like Hollywood, Bollywood and murder mysteries. 

Sounds about right. 

Starting from the bottom of the list, American politician and activist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was the 25th most searched Wiki article.

Actor Jason Momoa, of Game of Thrones acclaim, was the 24th most searched, which really shows our priorities of entertainment over politics. 

Donald Trump came in at number 18, which then highlighted though we may prefer entertainment over politics, we really prefer when politics is the entertainment. 

Elizabeth II was 15th most searched, which makes sense given The Crown Season 3 was released this year, and we are always facinated by the Royal Family.

Jeffrey Epstein also ranked pretty high. 

Billie Eilish, who has been having a cracking year in the music biz, ranked 9th most-searched. 

The Chernobyl disaster was another highly searched term, which may have come off the back of the highly regarded TV Special: Chernobyl. 

Freddie Mercury continues to be a shining beacon beyond the grave, encouraged by the released of the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. 

In a morbid dichotomy, our top searched articles were Death in 2019 and Avengers: Endgame - both of which involve a lot of carnage.
