Top 20 celebrities predicted to die in 2014

If you listen to people who play dead pools, actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has been at death’s door for three years. For the fourth year in a row, Gabor has been picked as the celebrity most likely to die in the coming year, according to the Stiffs.com dead pool.
Gabor, 96, continued to breathe as 2013 ended, defying the odds makers.
Of the top 20 celebrities marked for death in 2013 by Stiffs.com, seven croaked last year. (That compares with five in 2012 and seven in 2011.)
The deceased public figures included Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, South African President Nelson Mandela and U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
The winner of the 2013 Stiffs.com contest, DePressED, correctly guessed seven deaths from a list of 10 names.
Of course, most picks are public figures in ill health or at an advanced age. Few players dare to make a wild card guess of a young celebrity based on a risky lifestyle. (For instance, no one guessed that actor and race-car driver Paul Walker, 40, would die in 2013.)
Here’s the list of public figures (with ages) predicted to die in 2014:
  1. Zsa Zsa Gabor, 96
  2. Billy Graham, 95
  3. Kirk Douglas, 97
  4. Fidel Castro, 87
  5. Olivia de Havilland, 97
  6. George H.W. Bush, 89
  7. Luise Rainer, 103
  8. Run Run Shaw, 106
