Answers to Friday Funday Trivia: Celebrity Yearbook

Before getting to the answers, here are the names of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers this week.

1st place- Michelle: 29 pts
2nd place- Dina: 26 pts
3rd place- Vanessa: 25 pts (making what I believe is her first trip to the podium... good job!)

Considering how difficult this quiz turned out to be, these scores aren't that bad. This is one of those quizzes where it can be hard to identify a particular celebrity; but when you find out the answer, it totally makes sense. I predict there will be a little bit of cussing when some of you see the answers below. :-)

Congratulations to those who made it to the podium and thanks to everyone who played.

1. 2 pts- Oprah Winfrey
2. 2 pts- Jerry Seinfeld (For 2 bonus pts, how many Emmy Awards has this person won for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series?)- none. However, he did receive 5 Emmy noms for in this category (from 1992-1996)

I'm sorry, but young Stephen Colbert looks like Sean Young in a suit.

Becky: I never would have made the connection, but young Stephen does resemble Sean Young. Another player thought it was Sean too!
