Last week, Slezak challenged you dear readers to correctly ID the woman at left. A sampling of some
wrong extremely entertaining answers:
”Call me crazy, but that tan-in-a-can gal looks like Eva Longoria.” — Joe Keglovitz
”It’s Corrine Bailey Rae fresh out of the tanning bed. Also with too much makeup.” — Birgitta Johnson
”It’s Kate Bosworth’s secret illegitimate Latina sister, Catalina Bosworto, right? Notice the same round forehead and apple-cheeked smile? But seriously, is it maybe Keisha Castle-Hughes after being baked in the Morocco desert while shooting The Nativity Story?” — Ariella Blejer
”Part of me wants to see if this is Sienna Miller on a very weird tanning/contacts experiment… But realistically, she seems to have Eva Longoria’s features. I’ll go with Eva!” — Christopher Hooker
”All the clues are right there! It’s Lourdes (Lola) Maria Ciccone Leon (Ritchie)!” — Andrew Katy
”You guys at EW always stump us at work. But we think the Guess Who No. 11 is Ciara. The one facial feature that’s throwing us off are the lips — alhtough collagen injections would not be out of the question.” — Patrick Bannister & Laura Schmidt
”Clearly the sequins, makeup, and toothy grin (not to mention the ooh-la-la fake eyelashes!) belong to none other than our dear little Mark Indelicato of Ugly Betty fame, thoroughly exploring all of his options as he teeters on the brink of pubescence. –Matt Bailer
See the correct answer, a list of smarties, and an explanation of how we came up with the idea — after the jump!
It’s Melody Thornton!
You know, Melody Thornton! Of the Pussycat Dolls! (That’s her, second from left.)
I confess: A couple weeks ago, I was telling one of our photo editors how the lead singer, Nicole Scherzinger, is absolutely everywhere these days — on magazine covers, in that Diddy video, etc. — but that I probably couldn’t identify any of the other Dolls if you put a gun to my head. So the photo editor found that pic of Melody, taken at last year’s VMAs.
Turns out that lots of you know your
eye candy backup singers! Here are all the folks who gave the right answer, with special kudos to Nathan Grijalva, who was the first respondent to give Melody’s full name (instead of just answering, "It’s that chick from the Pussycat Dolls!”):
Thanks for playing!
