What's This?

The hype index, which updates daily, is a measurement of how much a sports figure is being talked about online and in the media. This category includes athletes, businesspeople, and media personalities. On-field stats, TV ratings, and similar measurements do not factor in --  this is just pure, unadulterated hype. For more information on what metrics this category uses and how the rankings are calculated, see the FAQ.
