Can you identify this celebrity?


This is a game to test your power of recognition. The following 20 photos are all celebrities and your job is to identify who they are. I'm providing 4 possible answer choices for each photo but only one is the correct answer. Make your guess, write it down on paper and proceed to the next photo. The answers will be found after the gallery of photos, and here you can tally up to see how many you got right and how many you zapped out on. Special note: the last photo is a little tricky because the photo is in reverse.

Good luck!

I enjoyed these along with the suspense. You should do a hub on where the child stars are now. Those too are very entertaining.

Beth,

I do believe I don't ever want to achieve celebrity status.

I have a morbid fear of my graduation photo ending up on your page, lol!!

I haven't developed much of an appreciation for most celebrities since .... well, in a good long while.

But, this was still a great idea for a Hub!

I had quite a bit of fun with your guessing game!
