  1. Leitchfield is not bad. It’s a nice quiet town. Yes, you do have to drive a good distance if you want a decent paying job (my husband works at Ford in Louisville) but we’d rather live here than move closer to his work.

  2. I grew up in Campbellsville and I’ve been to a lot of the towns on here and yeah poverty is bad but that’s everywhere. Who ever did this clearly can not be from Kentucky. I love my home state and my hometown!

  3. Flemingsburg is actually a great place to live and doesn’t deserve to be on this list. People who live here are happy and well adjusted and it is a beautiful charming little town. We are not perfect but we are the “friendly town that hospitality built”. Also, you failed to show pictures of the actual downtown which is clean and did I mention charming. Like any town there are the one or two streets which could use some updates, but I can go anywhere in this town and feel safe and not meet a stranger. I’m guessing that you didn’t really take much time to find out about our town or you would have realized that it should never have made this list. This link will take you to a blog post that shows many wonderful snapshots from around Flemingsburg. Enjoy! https://teresalhardymon.com/2015/10/29/small-town-memories/

  4. I am shocked at your science 10 worst, there is not one that you mentioned that deserves any less than praise for hospitality kindness and just all out brotherhood. maybe you could take another look at Chicago, Cleveland Pittsburg, Washington Dc., and Maybe your likeness of some of the cities in Kentucky that are the 10 worst, well would be a slice of heaven you have been lookin for. by the way I live in Mays Lick Ky. and for about 40 years traveled all over the Country, and was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. Only on there is something wrong with this report.

  5. I live in Prestonsburg, KY and I was really offended by this video. Yes, there is a lot of unemployment here, but you couldn’t ask for a better place to live when it comes to the people and the beautiful area. This guy is very sarcastic and making fun of these places. I wonder if he has even been to any of these places?

  6. I have to disagree with Monticello being #1. Lived there 2 years and was never afraid. There is poverty and unemployment but that is seen everywhere!
