Have you ever hear of the Darwin Awards? If not, let me explain. The Darwin Awards are given out to people who do things that are so stupid, it will likely lead to their own extinction. Well, it looks like Paris Hilton is in line to receive her own Darwin Award, after the antics she pulled at a recent party.

According to Digital Spy, at a surprise party for boyfriend, Stavros Niarchos, Paris Hilton was so drunk - how drunk was she!? - Paris Hilton was so drunk that she jumped into a swimming pool after a garden light had fallen into the pool, very nearly electrocuting herself.

"Everyone was stunned. Paris was lucky she didn't get electrocuted," a source told the Sunday Mirror. "She thought it was hilarious. Stavros jumped in next and accidentally knocked her on the head in the process."

Hilton later treated her guests to a pole dancing session.

The insider added, "Paris was so drunk she could barely hold on to the pole - let alone dance."

Everyone's "favourite" socialite princess, almost killed from being too drunk. Wow, I don't think anyone saw that coming. Check out more recipients of the Darwin Awards, and then stop and think a little before having that twelfth drink.
