TORONTO, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Forbes released its list of most trustworthy celebrities. Mike Holmes topped the list in third position, behind Morgan Freeman and Ron Howard.
"I'm honoured," stated Holmes. "You always hear about Forbes list of trust billionaires or top-earners. But this is one list I'm really proud to be on. I just can't believe I beat Betty White."
Forbes complied its list using data from E-Poll Market Research, whose E-Score Celebrity service ranks more than 7,000 celebrities on awareness, appeal and 46 different personality attributes. The Trustworthy Score represents a combination of trustworthy and appeal ratings.
"My phone has not stopped ringing," stated Lilana Novakovich, Mike Holmes' agent. "I'm getting hundreds of endorsement inquiries," she added. "But Mike has always been cautious about his branded partnerships. He will only endorse products or services he believes in. I suppose that's part of the reason why he made it on the list in the first place."
"I'm happy my message is getting across," added Holmes. "It's not about what you do. It's about who you help. And how what you do helps others."
Mike's highly anticipated new series, Holmes Makes It Right will be airing in the US and Canada on HGTV this coming October.
