Many of the people you mentioned were born in Georgia, but don't have much else to do with the state. I chose people whose lives and character were affected by growing up in Georgia, not a completely different state.

So if I don't know Outkast, I get double penalized? How about if we change all the Justin Bieber, One Direction, and Twilight questions that infect most of the quizzes so that they appear twice? Good quiz, otherwise.

I would have bet it was the state, however, imo, a sovereign country has the priority, the quiz should be "Famous people from the US state of Georgia".

Important civil rights leaders, subjects of big-budget films, and namesakes for national holidays. Leaders of the free world. Internationally famous superstar actors, athletes, directors, and musicians. Overweight child pageant queens with lists of accomplishments as long as our current president's. Renowned TV personalities, Supreme Court justices, and comedians. And one unpleasant swamp creature that some smartass witch decided to prank by turning into a less pleasant member of Congress. from Georgia.
