I thought the question was A list "internet" celebrities, not A list celebrities in general.
Yes Kodos that was the question that they asked on the CAGcast. We are using celebrities that just got there fame from the internet and got the most out of it.
I translated internet celebrities to mean "geek" celebrities, so that could be a bad translation in my part.
Yes it was a misinterpretation thinking all internet celebrities are "Geek's" Though we all like the CAGcast we all have a fondness for them so we use that fondness to justify giving them higher rankings because they mean more to us. It's like how most parents think their kid is the cutest, but there are millions more cute babies out there and they are bias because it's their own kid.
If we are talking general celebrities I don't think any geek celebrity would be even close except for Wil Wheaton just because of tNG.
I like Wil Wheaton; however, that is more of an opinion of him being the closest to a "Geek Ambassador" Celebrity. But the term "Geek" is so broad that many people can be put in that category. One "geek' that I can think of is J.J. Abrams from everything he has done screams geek. So at this time I think J.J. Abrams is more popular than Wil Wheaton at this time.
But once again we are talking internet celebrities and not real celebrities, I like Wil Wheaton better than J.J. Abrams but I know that J.J. is better known at this point in time.
