Brain Celebri-teasers: Solution – Week #42

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Welcome back to Brain Celebri-teasers. It’s time to reveal the solution to our Week #42 puzzle:

Week #42
Category:Music
Difficulty:Medium
Clue:Ladies and Gentelemen, boys and girls, presenting two of the most provactive entertainers in history…
Answer:Lady Gaga &
Boy George
OK, so maybe not “Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls,” but rather just “Lady” and “Boy.” In putting these two famous faces together, I was struck at how similar their styles (and careers) have been so far. It’s almost more about the performance than the music, I think…

The winner this week was Mike!

After forty-two weeks, the standings are as follows:

Category:Movies/TV
Difficulty:Hard
Clue:These two handsome men are famously linked for a time when they kept their faces hidden
Answer:George Clooney &
Christian Bale
When actors look like this, it seems strange to cover their faces in the movies. But George Clooney and Christian Bale both famously took a turn wearing a certain bat-like cowl, adding their names to a long list of actors who have stage-whispered their way into history.
