I had no idea what he looked like. And I'm sure after closing this web page I will forget and still won't be able to recognize him. I just saw the top corner of his jersey and assumed he was some kind of athlete, so... I guessed Messi and that was it.

Only one I missed was Kylie. I thought to myself: that looks like some vapid twit that belongs on that hideous reality TV show. Let's see.. "k-a-r-d-a-s-h-i-a-n" ... nope. oh well.

I was so close.

One of the most hear names these last years ( a kid a few houses down shouts it all day long... so there is no way around it for me! once in a while he says ronaldo... he says it every time he kicks the ball... so like every 15 seconds... and that for like 30 mins at a time 2-3 times a day... (he is 4)

But I dont watch football/soccer, so would have no idea. The only ones I might be able the recognise are soccer players from my country in the mid 90s... when I was about 13 everything everything from that time stuck the most.

Even Trudeau is more guessed than Messi. I only know that guy from this site. I think Messi is much more international (or internationally known?).

I suspect the beard throws a few people off. The classic Messi look is clean-shaven. Plus if you don't regularly watch La Liga you might know very well who Messi is without knowing what he looks like. Hell, I know perfectly well who Kanye West is, but didn't have a good sense of what he looks like and missed that one.

Wow, I scored one whole point. I've never heard of several of these people, and just started guessing the names I have heard of to get a few more. I was able to get Trudeau because when I looked at his photo I immediately thought, "Politician, not sports or movies," and then it was easy to figure out because he is young.

OMG Tom Hardy is the man. Such great range. Legend, The Revenant, etc. but if you want to see a great movie with great acting but not a lot of action watch Locke. It's more like a play than a movie, but very good.

"Can you identify these mostly-American celebrities from the decade of the 2000s?"

I think you should accept spellings with a "T" for Putiepie (or however you spell it). It is reasonable to think Americans hearing it without seeing it written out would think that this made up word that the person has chosen as their moniker would be like the "d" sound we hear in "letter" or "better" (or "cutie pie") when spoken in an American accent.

Why would JetPunk accept a misspelling?
+1
Level 71
May 23, 2024
Because Jetpunk's overall philosophy seems to be not to conflate trivia knowledge with a spelling bee--in an oral trivia quiz, for example, you would not need to know how if it's "Minnaj" or "Minaj". In other words, they're separate things, especially where proper nouns are concerned.

I see the value in that, and I also see the value in being strict about spelling (though there are often many valid variant spellings as well), but a quiz site has to make a choice and accepting common misspellings is standard here.

I would love if it were configurable, and you could check a box that enables strict spelling or not; but I suspect this would require a deep revamp of the site code and require rekeying most answers.

These feel more like 2000's celebrities:

Timberlake, Kunis, West, Zuckerberg, Reynolds(?), I thought Gomez was a child star.. I'm not familiar with most of these. If that's Hal from Malcolm in the Middle/Breaking Bad.

I'm sure you can argue the opposite. But AFAIK, Nsync, That 70's Show, Facebook, were solidly 00's. Sure they remain stars today.. but from what decade are Madonna, Eminem, Henry Winkler, etc?

Justin Timberlake is not just known for N'Sync. He is actually more popular for his solo career, which mostly occurred in the 2010s. Facebook is still just as popular as ever, and Zuckerberg is constantly in the spotlight for doing something controversial. Ryan Reynolds is more popular now than ever and has many 2010s credits, ie Deadpool. Gomez was a child star, but now has a very lucrative solo singing career. She is all over the radio. Breaking Bad happened in the 2010s, and Cranston is more well known for that than Malcolm in the Middle. Just because you don't know what they did in the 2010s doesn't mean it didn't happen.
