The description for this quiz is wrong; AX and AZ seem to be omitted.

Why? It doesn't say that it includes all letters of the alphabet?

Well, the tagline says from AA to AZ, so without AZ, it's incorrect.

New record for pedantry. I added AZ. AX will have to wait.

I agree with Abel Xavier, the percentage won't be high, but he's famous enough to be included.

Please don't include Abel Xavier. He's really not famous enough.

IKR. All I though of was "Tony Montana doesn't have AC initials." Totally forgot that real world exists too :-D

al roker should have been on there, and alex trevek needs more spelling options, but fun quiz

There is another spelling option for Trevek. Try "Trebek".

Kept putting "Puzo" for the Godfather, doh! I guess Mario doesn't start with an "A".

I tried that first, too, then looked at the first initial.

I tried various spellings for Puzo then gave up. If only I had known his first name ^^.

I tried that too. Unfortunately I couldn't remember Puzo's first name, or I would have realized my error instantly.

Should I be ashamed that I didn't get Alan Rickman? I'll answer my own question. NOPE!

A. J. Foyt (Anthony Foyt) is a 4-time winner of the Indy 500, and also happens to fit this puzzle with an "A" initial.
+1
level 58
Jul 16, 2015
If you take another look you'll see that each question is tied to each of the letters in turn, from A to W and Y. So Foyt only fits the F space, not the U space the clue is tied to.

Small point as the clue (and picture) make it clear who you mean, but Albie E. didn't discover relativity, it had already been theorised before he came along

Bit pedantic but Kournikova won 2 doubles Grand Slams so 'never wins' is a bit unfair.
+1
level 68
Dec 16, 2017
Not pedantic. She won 229 singles matches and 200 doubles matches as a pro. She was on the number 1 doubles team in 1999. I get it that her success as a model, and online and financially way outpaced that of pros of similar singles rankings but this clue could be worded a bit more cleverly . . . no need to dis her. She was an accomplished and amazing athlete. Something like: Good looking tennis great who who never won a singles title.

Nice to have quizzes like this that remind me what an idiot I am. I got 20, which is fairly decent, but never noticed that the INITIALS FOR EACH PERSON WERE SUPPLIED!!! D'OH! (smacks self in forehead)

AZ is in here (Abraham Zapruder, who filmed JFK's assassination), so I'm not sure what some of you are talking about when you say AZ is missing. Also, a better clue for the Godfather would be "who succeeded Marlon Brando as the Godfather."
