Shouldn't SOOPOO have some kind of disadvantage? After all he is a doctor who might have inside knowledge ;-)

Funny you should respond so quickly! I do have some inside knowledge on a few people who would be legal to use, but I would NEVER use that information! I googled something like celebrities with cancer to aid in formulating my list, though.

I (and anyone) could easily win this by searching for something like 'premature infants born to celebrities' but I'd rather lose the $20 than do that.

I did do a little searching myself after running out of names and added some who have or have had serious diseases.

The Queen,

You mean Hillary? I agree, she is long overdue.

The Queen,
Prince Phillip

Elizabeth II at age 91 has come from a long line of women who lived to be very old for their time.
Her mother died at age 102.

Her paternal grandmother, Queen Mary of Teck, died at age 85 in 1953
Her paternal maternal grandmother, Queen Alexandra of Denmark, died at age 80 in 1922
Her paternal paternal grandmother, Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge (FAT MARY) died at age of 63 in 1897

Her maternal grandmother, Cecilia Bowes-Lyon, Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne, died at age 75 in 1938
Her maternal maternal great grandmother, Louisa Cavendish-Bentinck died at age 85 in 1918
Her maternal paternal great grandmother, Frances Bowes-Lyon, Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne died at age 89 in 1922

So while Elizabeth II has outlived all of her female ancestors except her mother, women tended to die younger more than 50 years ago.

Prince Phillip at age 96 had outlived all of his ancestors. His father died at age 62 of heart failure and arteriosclerosis.

Trivia: FAT MARY was descended from Dracula by three of her four grandparents.
