10. Hillary Clinton

We’ll give Hillary Clinton and her team and A+ for effort. They almost had it. The scene was set, the poses were intricate, the challenge was seconds away from being complete, but then Clinton blinked.

While it may seem petty to dock off points for a mere blink, the entire purpose of the challenge is to hold still like a mannequin — and mannequins don’t blink.

9. Destiny’s Child

We couldn’t include a list of Mannequin Challenges without finding a way to put Beyoncé on it. Although this one was a little mediocre (sorry beyhive), it was still cute — and they’re clearly experts at holding completely still.

8. Steph and Ayesha Curry

If the Curry’s weren’t relationship goals before, they sure are now.

This one had a lot of participants, but few things that were very out of the norm. It just looked like a restaurant scene frozen in time. Extra points for getting all the diners to join in on the challenge though.

7. Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian

Blac Chyna didn’t let having a baby keep her from participating in the Mannequin Challenge.

Chyna was in the hospital bed appearing to be screaming from giving birth while Rob Kardashian was anxiously at the foot of the bed awaiting his daughter to arrive.

6. BYU Cougars Gymnastics Team

The sheer strength it took to pull this off is unimaginable — it hurt just watching it. This one wins our Olympic Gold.

5. Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavs enjoyed their visit to the White House so much that they wanted to freeze their time there forever — and we’re glad they did.

Although this challenge seemed simple enough, we love it because of LeBron and Michelle’s selfie moment. So precious.

4. Simone Shepherd and King Keraun

Comedians and YouTube personalities Simone Shepherd and King Keraun took a creative twist on the Mannequin Challenge. They reenacted R. Kelly’s popular 12 chapter drama, “Trapped in the Closet,” and captured multiple scenes into one video.

3. Black in Blue Film

Most mannequin challenges have all been in good fun, but this one took it a step further and turned a viral challenge into a powerful message.

This challenge reenacted the fatal deaths of Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, all while playing police scanner audio from the real events in the background.

2. These 4-year-olds absolutely failed the Mannequin Challenge, but they still nailed it.

You can literally see how hard it is for them to not move and they’re trying their best to hold still for the sake of the challenge. Cuteness overload.

1. TheWrap

Everyone, just quit the challenge — TheWrap wins. Hands down, the best mannequin challenge was done by TheWrap. Their creativity is unmatched, the precision unparalleled, we can’t think of anyone who’s done it better.

Totally unbiased opinion, of course.
