Note: you could argue that some of these are “balding” rather than completely bald.
Hey, it happens. Wait till YOU get older.

good quiz
Level 81

I had to look up what "roundball" meant.
Level 71
Apr 9, 2013
I tried looking it up, and did not get basketball out of it. If the clue was bball, hoops, etc, Jordan would have been way more obvious.
Level 54
Aug 5, 2013
I agree with that- poor clue. Missed the Jordan "clue" and Howie Mandel. Almost missed Gandhi- kept spelling it wrong, but got it in the end.
Level 75
Nov 18, 2016
Maybe that's the point - the question is really asking whether you know what roundball is. I didn't.
Level 91

You should accept alternate spellings for Carville. I'd at least give it to anyone who types Carvil or Carvill.
Level 84
Sep 28, 2017
A guy like Carville is someone people are likely to have heard about, not necessarily read about. Therefore, it is very likely that many who actually know the correct answer will have difficulty spelling his name precisely. I agree that some latitude should be given here.
Level 84
Sep 28, 2017
Especially since you need to misspell Telly Savalas' last name in order to precisely match what this quiz has for the correct answer.
Level 86
Oct 1, 2017
I re-checked, and "Savalas" or "Terry Savalas" would have worked, in addition to a number of misspellings.
Level 86
Jan 3, 2022
For that matter, you could accept "Ragin' Cajun".
Level 79
Apr 5, 2013
That was great. Got 'em all but James Taylor. Couldn't think of his name to save my life.
Level 33
Apr 5, 2013
How the heck did I get the Letterman and Dr Phil questions? They don't show that stuff outside of America... thankfully. :) Shoulda got George Foreman though.
Level 77
Oct 18, 2013
I know that Telly Savales is the original Kojak, but Ving Rhames played a modern version of him as well, and is also bald. Can you please accept Rhames as an alternate answer or change the clue to fit the original TV series?
Level 84
May 9, 2014
Can you accept 'R-u-s-s-e-l-l' for 'Jordan'?
Level 85
Jul 9, 2016
He isn't bald.
Level 89
Jul 31, 2018
I see the r-d, but not the B-i in the accepted spelling.
Level 69
Jun 19, 2016
It's really generous of you to accept "Lama" for the Dalai Lama, but just so you know, that's just the least-exotic part of a two-word title. It's sorta like looking for the answer "President Rutherford B. Hayes" and accepting "president".
Level 86
Mar 3, 2019
Not really. There are tons of presidents. How many lamas are there?
Level 82
Oct 12, 2016
All I could think of for "severely myopic cartoon character" was Hans Moleman.
Level 83

Greatest roundball player with no hair = Bobby Charlton
Level 83
Nov 18, 2017
Ben Kingsley should be added as well.
Level 93
Mar 28, 2019
some bald famous people are not on this
Level 63
Dec 27, 2017
I clicked on this quiz thinking it said "bad people," so I was very surprised to see the Dalai Lama as the first answer.
Level 58
Feb 11, 2018
I knew it was the writer, the Ragin' Cajun, seen in commercials, but could not come up with his name in time.
Level 95
Nov 20, 2018
Hahaha I got Larry David early because I typed him for Seinfeld's best friend. I was thinking real person Seinfeld instead of character Seinfeld.
Level 58
Dec 21, 2018
You misspelled "Roger Moore"
Level 86
Jan 3, 2022
Never bald. Died with a full head of hair.
Level 51
Nov 2, 2019
If I was bald I would buff and shine my head so it glistened in the sun.
Level 67
May 27, 2022
I have my own, picture based version of this quiz if anyone wants to give it a try: I did not know this was already a featured quiz.
Level 75
Jun 10, 2022
TV psychologist clue is a little vague. Kelsey Grammar aka Frasier would also fit the clue as written.
Level 74

Ugh, I got 34 right but I didn't remember Clinton's guru.
