Any adult member of the Osbourne family

As to YouTube stars, can you give their real name? Why are they famous, is it just because they are ill or something.

Amd "any adult member of the Obourne family" is not a valid pick, you have to choose a single member.

YouTube "stars" are not eligible unless they can be identified by a legal name, and that person is otherwise a celebrity.

Boogie2988's birth certificate says his name is Steven Jason Williams. He's (in?)famous enough to have a Wiki page.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boogie2988

What's the difference, really, between someone who becomes famous via You Tube, and someone who becomes famous because they can sing, or cook, or act, or give advice on any number of things, real or made-up?

I'll narrow the Osbourne death watch to Jack. Unfortunately, I really think that between the 7 of them (if you don't know, Ozzy has two kids by his first wife), Jack will die first.

Potentially interesting anecdote:

My younger brother was born at approximately 1:22am on January first. Mom went in labor on NYE. My father was kicked out of the delivery room because he kept trying to get Mom to give birth before the ball dropped in Times Square. He wanted that tax deduction.

For the rest of my father's life - even long after he and Mom divorced - he'd ask my brother on his birthday "why couldn't you have been born two hours earlier?"

One year, my brother replied "how come you didn't have sex with Mom two hours earlier?"

Without missing a beat, he replied "I wasn't drunk enough yet"

Superdude, yes, I was "daddy's little tax deduction" But he still would have been happy if I'd been born later. For a first baby I came fast, my folks had sat down to supper when Mom realized she needed to go to the nospital. And I was born at 10:16 PM, so labor was barely five hours. My due date had been Christmas Day.

I was going to do a "Theme" list this year but my first two celebs were just too compelling. I think Nassar will be killed in prison and Weinstein will take his own life rather than go to prison. I went down the road of tracing some of the 1960's TV stars from my favorite shows so you will see a few of them. I also owe it to some of my remaining picks from previous years just out of respect. I believe this may be the last trip around the sun for Bob Newhart but it will bring me great pain to see him go.

1. Larry Nassar Gymnast Sex abuse
2. Harvey Weinstein
3. Tina Louise - Ginger
4. Dawn Wells - Mary Anne
5. Dwayne Hickman – Dobie Gillis
6. Pat Priest – Marilyn Munster 2
7. Max Baer Jr. - Jethro (Jethrine)
8. Olivia Newton John
9. Henry Kissinger
10. Barbara Walters
11. Bill Cosby
12. Bob Newhart - Dr. Robert Hartley, Professor Proton
13. Jimmy Carter

Alternates
14. Barbara Eden - Jeannie
15. Julie Newmar – TV Catwoman 1966

clean list

Larry Nassar
Harvey Weinstein
Tina Louise
Dawn Wells
Dwayne Hickman
Pat Priest
Max Baer Jr.
Olivia Newton John
Henry Kissinger
Barbara Walters
Bill Cosby
Bob Newhart
Jimmy Carter

Alternates
Barbara Eden
Julie Newmar

Baker, I posted my "clean list" using people's legal names. Would you rather I listed people like Leah Bracknell, Jose Jose, and The Amazing Johnathan by their more familiar stage names? (Or in Comrade Duch's case, his criminal alias.)

In the introduction I say that the name a celeb is most commonly known by is best. But "The Rock" and Dwayne Johnson are equally acceptable. If you use either name of the celeb, and I don't give you credit because they are reported dead under the other name, be prepared to let me know about it.

For example, who is Jorge Bergoglio? Best to call him Pope Francis.

I've seen The Amazing Johnathon in this game reported as that, but also by his legal name, so I'll know to watch out for that one, but I can use all the help I can get.

Maybe in your commentary you can tell about it, and then post the name you choose, so I'll know they are the same person.

Since Paddy Ashdown had the bad manners to die 10 days early, can I elevate Uri Geller from understudy to Man in Background Eating Pasty? Thanks

The only reason I'd be glad to see your #1 pick go is that he's not quite a month younger than my mother. It would make me think about her passing at the same age.

I was wondering why so many were picking Olivia Newton-John lately...and then I saw the cover of this week's National Enquirer.
Great pick.
