This year has seen its share of scandals, from the infamous public-sex arrest aboard an Atlantis Cruise and Prince Harry’s more private naked-billiards romp, to John Travolta’s masseur woes and the dissolution of TomKat. (And that’s not even including poor General Petraeus’ fall from grace.)

What was the biggest shocker? Cast your vote for Scandal of the Year in the 2012 Queerties, honoring the best and worst in politics, entertainment, sports, viral videos, eye candy and more.

And all the winners are chosen by you, the Queerty readers!

VOTING IN THE QUEERTIES IS EASY: Just head over to the ballot page and click on your favorite nominees. We promise it’s a lot easier than voting for President was—and we’ve got sexier candidates, too.

You can go back and vote once every day until the contest closes on November 20, 2012, at midnight Eastern.
