* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: He has a large Latino fanbase, mostly due to his hammy, melodramatic lyricism and singing style unintentionally evoking the ''ranchera'' style of Mexican music. He even said: "I wish I was born Mexican."

His controversial opinions about subjects ranging from [[UnfortunateImplications immigration]] to [[AnimalWrongsGroup vegetarianism]], as well as his contrary and somewhat arrogant nature, mean that he is very much the type you either love or hate. Although [[HatesEveryoneEqually misanthropic]], he is charming and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold genuinely affectionate]] towards devotees and the few people who have gained his trust.
