Google is out with its most searched terms of 2015 and celebrities topped the list. Basketball star Lamar Odom, ex-husband of reality television star Khloe Kardashian, was the top search of 2015. Traffic spiked in October when Odem fell into a coma back and was on life support for several days after becoming ill at a brothel in Nevada. Meanwhile, ‘Jurassic World’ fans were out in full force on Google in 2015, with the movie claiming the number two spot on Google’s list. Searches heated up in June when the blockbuster movie was released. Third on the list was another movie – ‘American Sniper’ - released late last year and saw a wave of searches in January. Coming in at number four is Caitlyn Jenner, who transitioned to a woman earlier this year in a very public way, including an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer, which was viewed by almost 17 million people. The fifth spot on the list went to UFC champion Ronda Rousey - searches spiked in November, following her loss to fighter Holly Holm. Rounding out the list was video game ‘Fallout 4’ and film ‘Straight Outta Compton.’ Plus, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump was the fourth most searched person on Google for the year.
