The Twilight Saga wraps up this week with the final movie “Breaking Dawn: Part 2″ but that doesn’t mean that the fandom will end. Take a look at 11 super fan groups that give “Twihards” a run for their money.
Now hear us out, we’re not implying that all Twilight fans are crazy, just that special group that cry when they watch the trailer. Same goes with the following fan bases. You know these people when you see them.
#11 – Oprah fans
There’s no denying Oprah Winfrey is an impressive lady. She’s a writer/producer/actress/host/philanthropist that created her own empire. We’re just apprehensive about the group of her followers that own all of her books, magazines, DVDs and quote the words of Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz as law.
#10 – Hunger Games fans
Okay, so we actually kind of like the books. We’re just tired of hearing “OMG, it’s so totally different than Twilight. I’m team Peeta.”
#9 – Fifty Shades of Grey fans
People read this book everywhere. There’s a reason it’s called “Mommy Porn.” It’s the same reason we don’t want to sit next to you on an airplane while you’re reading it. That’s what a Kindle is for.
#8 – Grateful Dead fans aka Dead Heads
We love the dead too. These guys just make us feel bad for being materialistic, man.
#7 – Jonas Brothers fans aka Jonasheads
Find us a teenage girl who leads a Jo Bros conversation with how fantastic their music is, and we’ll eat our words. Up until know we’ve only heard “0mGGG!!! j0 br05 r s0 h0tt!!”
#6 – Tim Tebow fans
Okay, this has died down a little since last season, but when the then starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos began to impress the masses he was the only thing people talked about. And we don’t just mean sports fans. The media spun this guy like he was a underdog overcoming obstacles despite being a first-round draft pick and Heisman trophy winner!
#5 – Star Wars fans
The first three films were classics, we’re not arguing that. However, the fact that this fan group is so supportive of this franchise is giving the creators the opportunity to cash in on their love financially. Did we REALLY need re-releases of the originals? No, Han shot first. Stop buying all this junk!
#4 – Harry Potter fans aka Pottermaniacs
We love that Harry Potter is helping children love reading. Literacy for the win. That being said, these are CHILDREN’S books. Put the robe away grown man, you’re creeping out the kids.
#3 – Lord of the Rings fans
This group of super fans take themselves REALLY seriously. Oh you like the movies, but the ending was too long? Are you even aware that “Return of the King” BARELY scratches the surface of the content covered in the book. Have you even read “The Silmarillion?”
#2 – Star Trek fans aka Trekkies
Similar to “Lord of the Rings” fans, Trekkies are a very serious fan base. Some even get married with costumes and decorations. Google it, we’re not kidding. And don’t confuse “Star Trek” with “Star Wars” if want to avoid a20 minute lecture.
#1 – Justin Bieber fans aka Beliebers
Justin Bieber has the most intense fan base in the country. He has more than 30 million Twitter followers (that’s about 7 million more than the President) and most of them are screaming teenage girls. The Biebes turned 18 this year, but the “Bieber Fever” shows no sign of remission.
