You would think that Game of Thrones' Jeoffrey Baratheon is the last word on being evil. But trust George RR Martin's uncanny ability to surprise you (shouldn't it be shock rather?). Now that the fifth season of this worldwide TV phenomenon is done with, here's giving a new twist to the seasons ahead.

Vote for the one you think is the worst, most horrible, sadistic and evil person ever on the TV series. Is Ramsay the new Jeoffrey? Or is Olly to be blamed for all that is going wrong with the world.

1. Ramsay Bolton

His crimes: He raped Sansa, mutilated Theon Greyjoy and turned him into 'Reek', 'hunted' people, skinned Sansa's chambermaid... all for fun.

2. Cersei Lannister

Cersei had far more than her deserved share of comeuppance but still some want her to suffer more for all her plotting and scheming and all the torture she perpetrated on Tyrion.

3. Ser Meryn Trant to punch this guy on his face? This paedophile got the most well-deserved death in the entire series' history. Well done Arya!

4. The High Sparrow

Cersei's worst nightmare. He inflcted pain on sinners but in the most sadistic ways possible. Do you spite him for making Cersei walk naked through the city or applaud his measures at bringing back peace to King's Landing?

5. Olly

Olly is the new Jeoffrey. This dude got JON SNOW KILLED and left us shaking in pain and horror. He even killed Ygritte. Why are we even conducting this poll anyway?

6. Jeoffrey Baratheon

Was commonly known as the b**ch king. Where do we even start with this one? He ordered Ned Stark's beheading, killed Ross in the most gruesome way, got Lady killed, tortured Sansa no end, flogged those prostitutes so much... just horrible.

7. Melisandre

She corrupted the heart and mind of a rather okay-ish Stannis. Melisandre also allegedly murdered Jeoffrey Baratheon (that's a plus actually), Robb Stark with her dark magic. Plotted to get Shireen Killed.

8. Ellaria Sand

She poisoned an innocent little princess and sent her own nephew with the dead princess' father.

9. Stannis Baratheon

He set his daughter on fire, murdered his own brother, ordered his nephew be burnt alive, cut off Ser Davos' fingers, had sex outside of marriage... multiple times. You decide...
