Hmmm...2009? Someone already picked my top choice so I gotta go with

Hillary Clinton - with how many waves Obama is making through the "old school" democrats, there's no way that cow's been milked dry.

David Miscavige - Current president of the Church of Scientology which is getting heat from every angle right now

Lindsey Lohan - because you always put money on the best odds

Scandals don't have to be sex and/or drugs. They can very easily be something else, political or otherwise.

If you don't believe me, ask the current Governor of Illinois (selling Senate seat),

Or the Governor of Illinois before him, George Ryan (?) who was Republican and did jail time for... something or other.

I guess in Illinois you have to have committed felonies before you can become Governor, or at least swear to commit several felonies during the Oath of Office. :shrug:

Richard Hammond

Hehehe, I was just thinking Jeremy Clarkson. :lol:

I'm going to go with ...

James Blunt, the guy's too sensitive, something's got to give somewhere

Michael Vick, there's no way he'll stay clean once he gets out

Angelina Jolie, I think she's just going to step in it this year and piss someone off

Amethyst Hunter 12-16-2008 04:24 AM

Damn, most of the likely ones are taken already. Ah well, I'll try:

Fred and/or Shirley Phelps of the infamous WBC fame - 'Ol Fred's probably fixing to kick off his rocker (permanently, that is) one of these days, and daughter Shirley's well-known for her big mouth, so either one has potential to cause a fuss.

Tom Cruise - Can't wait till this jackass finally goes down in flames.

Hugo Chavez and/or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - Big mouths. Big attitudes. Big jerks.

Rapscallion 12-16-2008 06:19 AM

Right, I'm going to pick...

Cliff Richard.

Kofi Annan.

Jimmy Saville.

These aren't really based on expectations - two are based on what would be hilarious, and the last one is because he needs it.

A couple of things I have been pondering today.....

First of all, for those of you making politicians your pick, please remember that controversy does not necessarily equal scandal, and politicians, by the nature of their occupation, run into controversy and opposition more often than, say, Jim Carrey.. Prime example: Barack Obama is bound to run into difficulties as President. Maybe even clash with the Congress or the Republican Party. That in and of itself is not a SCANDAL. Please remember, as posted in the OP, I, me, Jester, am the final Arbiter of what is and what is not a scandal. So if I say it ain't, it ain't. For those of you that think that sucks, two things: 1. My game, my rules, deal with it. 2. For any of MY picks, I will be deferring to my good friend and logical thinker Rapscallion for what is and what is not a scandal in their cases. Anyone have a problem with Raps judging my picks? I thought not!

Secondly, Raps pointed out something that I think is important, that being that we all get only three picks. If the new year draws nearer (or even starts) and I feel the Pool is not deep enough, we WILL be adding to our picks an additional number of celebrities per Contestant, the number of which will be determined at the appropriate time. I am going to wait to do that, though, as I see how this grows. Right now, approximately 12+ hours after I started this nonsense, we already have 51 celebs in play.

Oh, and Raps? Your third celebrity pick spells his last name with only one "l." Pretty sad that I, an American who has never heard of the man, should have to tell you how to spell Jimmy Savile's name. :lol:

Excellent choice. First "blue chip" choice so far. And since we haven't heard a peep from her in 2008, you can almost feel her crying out for attention. Or arrest. Whichever.

Oh no, there are still so many good ones out there.

Love the choice. She actually almost went earlier, but the Contestant in question changed their mind at the last moment.

As I said above, not even close. Plenty of ripe pickings out there.

That's five. There are no and/ors here. Pick three. Period. (I sent a PM to AH regarding this, so this should be fixed shortly.)
