Chris Pratt jokes about being the ‘best Chris’ in his Fantasy Football League

Actor Chris Pratt arrives at the World Premie...

Chris Pratt is objectively the Worst Chris. Every time there’s a dumb internet “who is the best Chris” or “which Chris is the worst” poll, people always say that Pratt is the worst, their least favorite, that he should be kicked out of the Chris Club and replaced with Chris Messina and Christopher Meloni. A few months ago, there was yet another “one Chris has to go” social media thing, and it got picked up all over the place, leading to yet another Best Chris debate. The difference that time was that Pratt’s coworkers and wife fell all over themselves to defend this… MAGA-adjacent white dude who has literally never been marginalized in his life. Anyway, if I was Pratt, I would never breathe a word about Worst Chris debates ever again, but here’s Chris Pratt, reminding everyone about it:

Chris Pratt thinks the battle of the Chrises has come to an end. The 41-year-old actor took to his Instagram Story on Monday to settle who the better Chris is once and for all. People have long debated the best Chris out of Pratt, Evans, Hemsworth and Pine, though Pratt doesn’t mention the latter in his comments.

The topic came up as Pratt discussed making it into the final of his fantasy football league, AGBO Superhero League, which he and other actors — including Evans and Hemsworth — have been playing throughout the season to raise money for charity.

“I made it into the finals! I’m in the finals! How did this happen? It’s a 14-man league. I had 14th draft pick. You know how hard that is? I was last. It was very traumatic. Anyone who’s been picked last know how that feels. But somehow I was in, like, 10th place after the draft, and like eighth place after the season. I snuck two very, very close victories off, the most recent against Chris Evans. He had beat Chris Hemsworth last week, so I guess we can finally put an end to that debate. Who’s the better Chris? It’s one of them. I do have them in body fat content, though. So, I am more buoyant. Take that, gang.”

While Pratt was excited about making it into the finals and perhaps settling the Chris debate, the actor was most proud of how his accomplishment impacted the money raised for his charity, Special Olympics Washington. “The great news is, by being in the finals, I have already earned an extra $80,000 for Special Olympics Washington. If I win, it’ll be $150,000,” he said. “So, I’m going to try to win this coming weekend. Stay tuned. I’ll try to win, and if I don’t win I’ll be brave in the attempt as the model says. God bless you and go Hawks.”

Well, at least all of this was for charity, and more people should support the Special Olympics, which is an amazing organization. It was started by the family Chris married into – his mother-in-law is Maria Shriver, daughter of Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who founded the Special Olympics and built it into the worldwide organization it is today. If Chris goes all-in to use his fame to draw more attention to the Special Olympics, maybe he won’t be the Worst Chris in the long run. But it sounds like Pratt has more of a sense of humor about being the “worst Chris” than his wife and coworkers.

    The best Chris is Chris EVANS!!!!!!!!

    • sa says:

      Agree :)

      I’m not really a fan of Chris Pratt too much, but if he was going to address the whole “best Chris” thing, this was the way to do it.

      • Snuffles says:

        The only thing I like about Pratt is “Parks and Rec.” Andy the lovable idiot is his best role.

      • sa says:

        I agree that Andy is his best role, but I go back and forth on how much I like Andy (depending on the episode). I may be too grumpy to fully appreciate him, but I don’t love when a character’s idiocy is what makes them funny/lovable. The character definitely had his moments for me, but overall he was one of my least favorite parts of one of my favorite shows. (also, I know I’m in the very small minority in not loving Andy).

    • Tiffany says:

      No. His both side are alright and should be heard lead to the rise in profile and legitimacy of Dan Crenshaw. I see him too.

      Pine and only Pine is the best Chris.

      • Viva says:

        Pines DUI ruined him for me

      • LP says:

        @viva I was super disappointed by that too, but there’s no sign of repeat behavior from him. I like Evans but he was visibly drunk throughout the Age of Ultron press tour and no one said anything!

      • ElleE says:

        Why is this even debatable? Pine was in Star Trek and played America’s Sweetheart Steve in WW: something for everyone.

      • lola says:

        @Tiffany I hated that, too.

        @LP A drunk press tour is nothing compared to a DUI.
        And Evans was only drunk during Kimmel and the world premiere. He was sober during the rest of the promo.

    • Courtney B says:

      💯 I don’t hate Pratt but I love evans so I’m burned he beat him in the league. The whole thing will benefit a lot of great charities though—the pot was $1 million. Plus there was a special large charitable dedication in Chadwick Boseman’s name to charities he supported.

      Side note—the burns and trash talking amongst the Marvel stars was epic. Especially check out Paul Rudd’s take down of Downey and my favorite Pom Klementieff’s of Chris Hemsworth. They were both music videos and HILARIOUS.

  2. Rapunzel says:

    Yeah…more like he realized how badly he came off having his coworkers defend him, so now he’s acting like he doesn’t care. We saw you dude. You must be jelly because jam don’t PR like that.

    It still stands out to me that no other Chris said a word in his defense, though he’s worked with Evans and Hemsworth.

    All this to say while supporting the special Olympics is great, I’m all for replacing Pratt with Chris Meloni. Stabler ftw!

  3. Tiffany says:

    He doesn’t have a sense of humor, which is why his wife and then his agent asking other Marvel cast members to speak on his behalf.

    And the follow up after he showed himself, a dedication to Jack Black, which was deserved and the cases made, made sense.

    • Rapunzel says:

      I’m not up on the Jack Black stuff. Can you elaborate?

      • Tiffany says:

        There were several pieces from fans in defense of him being Star Lord, why it would have worked and how he should be part of the MCU now. Just Jack’s all around talent as an actor and performer.

        It was actually just a nice thing to do and really did make a strong case for Black and his talents.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Oh, yes Jack Black would have been a great Starlord!

    • lucy2 says:

      The weird thing is that back in his Parks days, he DID have a sense of humor and seemed very well liked. He seemed to really change once he went all movie star.

      • Snuffles says:

        Honestly, never paid any attention to his personal life, so I don’t know if he changed or not. I do appreciate his loyalty to Parks and Rec though. He has shown up and enthusiastically participated in every panel and reunion.

      • Sigmund says:

        @Lucy @Snuffles I always wondered if that was why his first marriage ended. He got more famous and attractive and
        figured he could “level up” to a wife who wouldn’t work and would basically be a SAHM. Plus she wouldn’t compete with his fame.

  4. lucy2 says:

    I’m so embarrassed for him.
    Imagine being that thin skinned that you, a white rich male movie star, gets so worked up because you come in last in a stupid internet discussion (due solely to your MAGA-esque tendencies too) that you not only rally other celebrities to “defend” you, but bring it up again months later under the guise of raising money for charity.

    But the Special Olympics are wonderful and deserve support, so good for that at least.

  5. Sofia says:

    I thought it was so silly to get so worked up over a debate that the internet has every other month. If your feelings are so hurt, then speak up like a big boy. I found Katherine’s (his wife) post on how we should all love each other to be so eye-rolling but also very right for a privileged, rich white woman like her.

    RDJ’s post was pretty condescending.

    • oliphant500 says:

      RDJ’s post really made me despise him, why couldn’t he have brought out such vitriol for the vile bullying brie Larson got? also found it hilarious that the picture he put up on insta while defending his ‘BRO’ was one from filming and he deleted tom holland out of the middle, he’s ‘such good friends’ with Pratt he doesn’t even have one photo of them together. DOUCHE BROS STICK TOGETHER

      made me laugh how much of a bomb his dr Dolittle was, hope that took him down a peg or 2, dude thinks he’s Tony stark EYEROLL

    • Merrie says:

      RDJ’s post was sooo condescending. It made me like HIM less.

    • Rapunzel says:

      RDJ is an a– whose career pre-Marvel was pretty much dead. And he was practically uninsurable too. He should never have gotten the Iron Man role.

    • lucy2 says:

      RDJ definitely managed to drag himself down with all that, rather than build Pratt up.
      Honestly I don’t think I’ve ever really liked RDJ, he comes across very arrogant. I think he’s a good actor, and can admire that he has worked hard to rebuild his life and career, but personally…no. I don’t think I would enjoy spending time with him.

  6. FHMom says:

    Worst Chris is SUPER thin skinned. If he weren’t such a jerk, I’d feel sorry for him.

  7. Snuffles says:

    @SA He was a solid part of an incredibly strong ensemble cast.

  8. Grant says:

    So funny. In other news, in the most recent issue of the Guardians of the Galaxy comic it was announced that Star-Lord (Pratt’s character in the MCU) is bisexual. I wonder how Chris Pratt feels about that revelation!

    • Sankay says:

      Yes, this is the real question. How does he feel about the character being bisexual. And is all this “best Chris” talk designed to take away from that announcement.

    • Tiffany says:

      He’s going to use his flex and make sure no part of that is in these films.

  9. Sigmund says:

    All I can say is I love Jack Black and somebody needs to bring him into the MCU.

  10. SarahCS says:

    I see you worst Chris. Nice try to show that you don’t ‘really’ care. Your wife and co-workers just decided to speak out without talking to you about it I guess?

  11. Coolitude says:

    I don’t know him a lot. He is not interesting but I notice that Chris Evans or Hemsworth don’t answer to his Instagram story and don’t put it in their feed. He identifies them. Silence is the best answer sometimes

  12. Charfromdarock says:

    He’s starting to look like a budget Burt Reynolds.

    And Christopher Plummer is the best Chris.

  13. Stephanie says:

    I am happy for the Special Olympics to get attention and money but a lot would have to change for him to no longer be Worst Chris!

  14. FruitBowlnBerries says:

    I’m sorry, but I can’t stand this guy. He’s well cast in the Guardians role but otherwise a horrible actor. Hunting, giving his cat away on Twitter, etc. Yucky person.

  15. February-Pisces says:

    Non of the ‘Chris’s’ do it for me. Pratt, Hemsworth, Evans, Pine and anyone else called Chris. I’ll add all the ‘ryans’ to that list too. Its not that they aren’t handsome, they all seem kinda dull and generic to me, they could all be the same guy and I wouldn’t know. The last Hollywood actor I crushed on was probably rob pattinson, he’s always comes across as cute and charming as well as handsome.

  16. mary says:

    it seems Chris Evans will only ever dated actress only so much for women in real-world where he missing out. real women have a lot to offer to him real women with real jobs don,t matter to him he has dated lot of women i have lost count models, actress, singers , blonde .brunnete,. younger, and older endless choice like wow but here a question how you land a handsome ladies man who has never been rejected rarely single . one man with too choice
