    So… quick argument.. I personally have found the number of languages that a celebrity’s Wikipedia article is available in to be a very reliable indicator of their fame. It shows how many cultures they’ve tapped into. Last time I checked, it takes 10 articles for a celebrity to be considered a “notable death” on wikipedia which few achieve. With that said… Lois Chiles & Ralph Baer both have 13 different language articles, Adrianne Curry has 16 articles, Janice Dickinson & Ashley Massaro have 20, Mike Mizanin has 28, and Amy Lee has 45. G’night.

    Any chance on getting some insight into the prestigious yet secretive Fame Committee? Just curious. If you can’t name names, how about some ages, professions, locations?

    Also, unless I read wrong, there are 50 members and 15% are required to certify fame. That would be 8 members. Unless there are members on the committee who are 1/2 people.

    But elsewhere I read that recognition by more than 4 people will certify fame. Is there some sliced cheese around somewhere?

      Aged 20 – 75, all over the country, varying professions. All by design. 55 members now – and trying to grow – 15% of whom will make someone famous. That’s it.

    I did my first write in this year and was bummed to learn that Nick Stahl from the terminator movies was not famous. He is on TMZ and People all the time for being a train wreak. Oh well I guess I learned my lesson and will stick to the list ­čÖü

    Would I be right in thinking that Terry Pratchett is not on the list due to his stated desire to, at some future point, commit assisted suicide?

      I assumed Terry wasn’t accepted because the board doesn’t read books. I can’t imagine any other scenario in which one would consider Terry not to be a celebrity.
