death 2011 JACK FM Celebrity Death Pool
2010 marked the end of the road for several of our favorite celebs. 2011 sadly will be no different. And we here at JACK FM only know of two ways to dull the pain. Ether, which we’re out of, and GAMBLING…so we present to you, our 2011 Celebrity Death Pool….

A number of the JACK FM staff participated in this years Celebrity Death Pool. All making three choices from three different tiers.

Tier 1- Old and/or sick celebrities whose passing would be grieved, but would be of no HUGE surprise

Tier 2- Older or troublesome celebrities whose death might not be an absolute shock, but not someone who already has buzzards circling above them

and Tier 3- Out of the blue, younger, seemingly healthful celebs whose death would be a shock to most.

1 pt. for a Tier 1 death. 3 pts for a Tier 2 death. Aaaand 5 pts for a Tier 3.

Standings will be updated throughout the year and the winner wins a weeks paid vacation. That is, assuming HR and the Legal department is ok with all of this. I haven’t really ran this by them per se, but they seem pretty cool so it should be fine.

Undoubtedly some of you are already screaming…… “Boo….in poor taste JACK. You shouldn’t make light of death.”

 To those people I cite the great George Bernard Shaw…

Dying is a troublesome business: there is pain to be suffered, and it wrings one’s heart; but death is a splendid thing –a warfare accomplished, a beginning all over again, a triumph. You can always see that in their faces.

With that being said, let’s get to the picks

Dr. Cranfill selects…
cran 2011 JACK FM Celebrity Death Pool
Brett Favre, Donatella Versace, and Ronnie from Jersey Shore.
This reads more like a wish-lish in retrospect…

Tami Heide selects…
tams 2011 JACK FM Celebrity Death Pool
Zsa Zsa Gabor, David Hasselhoff, and Lindsay Lohan
Looks like Tams went with some low-hanging fruit here. Will her conservative approach pay off?

JACK FM producer Mr. Crank selects….

Phyllis Diller, Verne Troyer, and Anthony Michael Hall
Anthony Michael Hall? Really Crank? What did Brian Johnson ever do to you?
Jack FM Web Editor Jordy Altman selects…

jordy 2011 JACK FM Celebrity Death Pool
Michael Douglas, Dakota Fanning, and Dick Clark….
Savvy strategy here by Jordy. Bookend his Tier 3 hail mary with a couple low risk investments.
JACK FM Captain and fearless leader, Things That Go Ralph In the Nite selects…
ralph1 2011 JACK FM Celebrity Death Pool
Joan Rivers, Macaulay Culkin, and Jack LaLane

Another solid threesome this time from the JACK FM Captain. Hard not to like these picks.
JACK FM Writers room neighbor and other radio station employee Ann selects..
anne 2011 JACK FM Celebrity Death Pool
David Arquette, Aretha Franklin and Nancy Reagan
Wow. Now that I look back at my picks, I maybe should rethink my strategy. Other Radio Station Employee Ann stands as the Vegas favorite…

American Phil, JACK FM promotions co-ordinator selects…
phil 2011 JACK FM Celebrity Death Pool
Brett Michaels, Ron Jeremy, and Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus was the trendy hot pick from Tier 3 this year but is it just that? A trendy pick? Only 2011 will tell.



JACK FM producer DJ Digidal selects….
marcus 2011 JACK FM Celebrity Death Pool
Charlie Sheen, Larry King, and Taylor Swift
A Tier 1, a Tier 2, and a super high Tier 3, borderline Tier 4 in Taylor Swift. DIGI was covering all his bases here…

JACK FM production assistant RyChow selects…
ryan 2011 JACK FM Celebrity Death Pool
Hugh Hefner, pop star Ke$ha, and Dustin Diamond (Screech)
Some seriously risky picks here. A Tier 2, and two Tier 3’s there RyChow? Hey, if they all kick, he would be the winner. You know the saying…..”scared money don’t make money.”

and lastly….from JACK FM Sales, Juan Ryan selects…
carlos 2011 JACK FM Celebrity Death Pool
Bob Barker, Rob Schneider, and Terri Hatcher
Call me crazy but I like this threesome. You may question the Terri Hatcher choice but with the impending cancellation of Desperate Housewives on the horizon and the stain of Ryan Seacrest on her soul, ask youself….what else does she have to live for?

So there it is. Feel free to add in your picks for the 2011 Celebrity Death Pool down below in the comment box. Hopefully we all lose this pool and every aforementioned celeb glides seamlessly into 2012 without so much as a scratch on their famous little head. But I think we both know that is about as likely as JACK FM taking your request….

    This game is so macabre but true, I just gotta take a chance…
    while I don’t believe any one should die, it is a fact, might as well do something positive with it like make money. Hey! In the end someone needy will take it or need it. So think of it like,.. community service or something in that genre. I gotta go with Tami Heide. Why? Well Zsa Zsa is old and has somekind of cancer and I feel bad for her..but shit happens…and then there’s David Hasslehoff who likes to live life in the fast lane and in the past, but you gotta juice it for what it’s worth, and who knows what’s gonna be his ticket to Cadaver St? But just when you think your in the safe zone…Zap! Lindsay takes a vacation! Well anyways. I hope everyone has a great 2011 and nobody we love dies!

  3. Mike Crank says:
