There can be some kind of a Google standard for this. (i.e. if you google the name it must appear in x number of different websites out of the Top 10 results)

I think everybody should have to take at least one kinda young seemingly healthy person. let's say under 50 with no terminal illness. that would be more challenging. Say like Lady Gaga or Jimmy Falllon for examples.

Could be some standard for the obituary, the death must be noted on cnn, fox, nytimes or something.. Should also allow alternates in case somebody on a list croaks who isn't famous. Alternates have to hit a 2-teamer to pay out, so there's a penalty for picking somebody who winds up not being famous enough.

How about the person has to have a wiki page "in good standing" (i.e. without some pending objection from the editors)?

Let's make sure we have more contestants than rules. I have received three entries thus far.

I'm working on my list. I just checked an each member of the Jersey Shore has their own Wiki page, so I'm good there.

"Has a wiki page" seems way too wide.

I still don't have a problem with Jon making the final decision on whether or not someone is famous. We don't need to hammer it down in the thread. If you have a question about one of your picks, just ask him when you submit. Maybe he'll answer. Or maybe not and then you'll only find out later that the pick doesn't qualify. Basically, stay well within the bounds of what constitutes a famous person and you'll be fine.

I've received 5 entries and we have 100% compliance with what I would consider an acceptable level of fame. Now, if you're trying to sneak an already dead person by me...
