John Cena?  That is a bit of a long shot  lol  He is pretty young and healthy.

Not really. football players and pro wrestlers drop more often than you think.

Oh I know.  Cena is not one of the drug using, hard partying, or even that hard falling ones though.

I needed a wrestler and I just went for the one that is the least natural body shape. He don't look right.

It depends.. I think Prince Philip is more likely to die first, but usually with older couples like that when one spouse dies the other dies soon after.

Bob Holness died today, would have been an obvious pick if I'd thought of it...

RIP :(

7 Besse Cooper - supercentenarian, age 115

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Besse_Cooper

I don't know that this is acceptable.
Being a supercentenarian does not a celeb (person of noted interest) make.
MOD??

Quote from: the rules
Rules as stolen from StoneQuarry's 2009 game and DK 2010 game:
All guesses must obviously be guesses of living persons of notoriety.  When it comes to questionable notoriety status, the mods will discuss and determine if that person is acceptable.  A general rule is that the person must be of somewhat mentionable status, appear in the news often or is just plain well-known.

Doesn't "somewhat mentionable status" include that fact that there's a WikiPedia page on her?...
That would seem like a reasonable criteria...

If I were modding I would not accept it.
Sorry but the game I designed was intended to include celebs or world leaders or the likes.
The fact that someone is old and has a wiki article doesn't fit them into these categories.
I provided the link to that page in my last post.
The only thing mentioned about her is that she is 115.
She is not known for anything else.

Again, just my opinion.  This is up to the game mod.
