Celebrity death pool 2015: Here's a complete list of celebrities who just might die this year. They say nothing is certain in life except for death and taxes. But everyone knows that wealthy stars do everything they can to avoid paying the government. The only thing that they can’t avoid? Death. And this celebrity death watch list is where you will make your predictions about which stars will die in 2015.

It may sound morbid, but it’s only natural. Maybe making these celebrity death predictions will help you prepare for the tragic famous deaths to come. Every year we lose plenty of famous people to that big stage in the sky. Whether it's from natural causes, suicide, drug abuse, or just plain craziness, it seems that celebrity deaths are getting crazier and crazier. So which famous celebrities do YOU think will be on the death list of people who died in 2015?

The politicians, actors, writers, musicians, and other celebs on this list may not be that old, but they are definitely in danger. Perhaps the only place in Hollywood where age doesn’t matter, in the celeb death pool game, there’s no discrimination. Not all of these people are in the process of dying or even close to death (freak accidents are always an option), so take general craziness of lifestyle into account when voting for the celebs likely to die in 2015.

Vote up who you think is more likely to kick the bucket in the next year and add any that you feel are missing. Check out the Celebrity Death Pool 2014 to find out who just barely made it to 2015.

<![CDATA[Rank the Potential First Ladies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/potential-first-ladies/jessica-lawshe
As more people throw their hats into the presidential race for the 2016 election, it's high time to learn more about the women (and men) who could become the "first ladies" of the United States of America. Who are the potential first ladies and first gentlemen of the 2016 presidential race?

Just as their predecessors, each of these women (or men) will forever be recognized as having been married to an American president. But what of their other traits? Regardless of being married to a future president, many of these women and men have their own notable careers and have already made names for themselves in the history books. For example, Heidi Suzanne Nelson (wife of Ted Cruz), is a managing director at the investment banking firm Goldman Sachs and has spent time doing missionary work in Africa. Supriya Jolly Jindal (wife of Bobby Jindal) has not only made a Vanity Fair best dressed list, but is getting her Ph.D. in marketing from Louisiana State University. And of course, we can't help but mention that Bill Clinton (husband of Hilary Clinton) has already been a two-term president. 

Each First Lady brings to the White House her own unique experiences, personalities, and abilities, in addition to her own agenda. While it's still unclear what some of these women (and men) plan to add to their agendas, it's clear that healthcare, women's rights, and education are at the forefront. Of course, as women gain more and more traction in the political realm, it won't be long before America has its first female president, which could mean the first "First Gentleman" in the white house. In fact, it could be as soon as next election! (We're looking at you, Bill Clinton or Frank Fiorina.) There's also potential for the United States to not have a first anything: candidate Lindsey Graham is single.

So take a look at this list of possible 2016 First Ladies and then exercise your right to vote! Vote up the woman or man you think will make the best First Lady or First Gentleman!

Anita Thigpen Perry

Who: Wife of Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry. 

Best First Lady Traits: She worked as a nurse for more than seventeen years, and has advocated for nursing and other health care issues in the past. Two nursing endowments have been set up in her name: the Anita Thigpen Perry Nursing Excellence Scholarship at West Texas A&M University and the Anita Thigpen Perry Endowment at the University of Texas at San Antonio, which focuses on nutrition, cardiovascular disease, health education, and early childhood development.

Pet Project Would Be: Health care in general, with an emphasis on immunizations, and raising awareness of breast cancer and Alzheimer's. As Texas Tech University Chancellor Kent Hance has said, “Healthcare is a big issue to her and her dad being a doctor – a country doctor – she certainly has a lot of opinions that were formed even at an early age over healthcare.” 

Sources: Wikipedia, The Hill

Bill Clinton

Who: Served as the 42nd President of the United States (1993-2001). Husband to Democratic presidential candidate Hilary Clinton.

Best First Gentleman Traits: During his two terms as President, the nation had the lowest unemployment rate it had seen in modern times, the lowest inflation in 30 years, and the highest home ownership in the country's entire history. He also proposed the first balanced budget in decades and achieved a budget surplus.

Pet Project Would Be: The Clinton Foundation, whose purpose is to "strengthen the capacity of people throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence."

Columba Bush

Who: Wife of Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush. 

Best First Lady Traits: She is an advocate for the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, and Arts for Life, a group that provides scholarships to young artists. Yet, it's interesting to note that during her husband's governorship in Florida from 1999 to 2007, she often retreated to Miami while he remained in Tallahassee. It was reported that she felt her husband's career had damaged their children and ruined her life. 

Pet Project Would Be: Perhaps nothing, if she chooses to stay out of the limelight. If she does decide to speak out it will most likely be to bring attention to victims of domestic violence or providing help to the youth of the nation.

Ruth Westheimer
Who: Wife of Republican candidate Lincoln Chafee. 

Best First Lady Traits: She was Rhode Island's first AIDS research nurse and went on to co-found the state's only clinic that provided free health services to the needy. She's known as being a wealthy philanthropist that is dedicated to health care-related causes. 

Pet Project Would Be: Healthcare and AIDS research.

Jeanette Dousdebes

Who: Wife of Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio.

Best First Lady Traits: Dousdebes has mainly stuck to the sidelines of her husband's political career, ensuring her kids have a stable life, but has said she likes campaigning because, “You meet a lot of different people and you hear their stories.” She also works part-time at the Braman Family Foundation, which helps to manage millions of dollars in donations to nonprofits and charities. She was also a Miami Dolphins cheerleader and appeared on their first swimsuit calendar. 

Pet Project Would Be: Bringing awareness to human trafficking. She has been involved with an organization called Kristi’s House that was created to help kids who are victims of human trafficking.

Candy Carson

Who: Wife of Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson. 

Best First Lady Traits: She is a former concert violinist and graduate of Yale (that's where she and her husband first met). She and her husband founded the Carson Scholars Fund, which works to award students who have embraced high levels of academic excellence and community service with $1,000 college scholarships. 

Pet Project Would Be: Education.  

Sources: CarsonScholars.orgDaily Entertainment News

Catherine "Katie" Curran O'Malley
Who: A Baltimore City District Court judge and and wife of Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley.

Best First Lady Traits: Because of her position as a judge, she has never been publicly active in her husband’s political career. She's also an advocate for victims of domestic violence and has traveled all over the world to speak with other judges and prosecutors about how protective orders can best be used to help people in domestic violence situations.

Pet Project Would Be: Domestic violence prevention and bullying in schools.

Jane O'Meara Sanders

Who: Wife of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Best First Lady Traits: Was president of Burlington College from 2004 to 2011. 

Pet Project Would Be: The cost of education and the need for job training.

Source: Bloomberg

Heidi Suzanne Nelson

Who: Wife of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz. 

Best First Lady Traits: She works as a managing director at the investment banking firm Goldman Sachs and received her M.B.A.from Harvard. She is planning to take an unpaid leave during her husband’s campaign. Interesting fact: Ted Cruz is actually on her health insurance. During her childhood she spent time in Africa with her missionary parents.
Pet Project Would Be: It's hard to say, but
 she's spoken about wanting to give back, saying at one point, “It’s ingrained in our family that life is about giving back.” Perhaps her financial prowess can also be of use to her husband, should he take the presidency. 

Source: Heavy.com

Kelley Paul

Who: Wife of Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul.

Best First Lady Traits: She is a former political consultant who is up-to-date on the biggest issues facing the country and believes her husband is the man to get the job done. During an interview she said: “The biggest issues that we’re facing right now are a lack of jobs, concern over the debt and the deficit and the spending, and where that leaves our country. So, I think most women, like most men, are looking for a more prosperous country. … I think Rand has some great ideas and some great energy and that direction and I hope women will take a look at him.”

Pet Project Would Be: Right now she's focused on helping her husband win the election, and has said, “I see myself giving some more speeches probably, helping with some of his messaging.”

<![CDATA[The Most Beautiful Women of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/most-beautiful-women-of-all-time
List of the most beautiful women of all time: ranked not on talent or accomplishments, but on looks alone. This is a test to see if the so-called "wisdom of the crowd" will actually be able to determine who the most beautiful woman of all time is. If you'd like to rank these women on more than their beauty, consult The Best Actresses in Film History list. This list does not only include the prettiest current actresses, but the most beautiful women in history.

So, who is the most beautiful woman ever? Of course, that woman may very well be a total unknown, but since it's impossible to list every woman who's ever existed, and one is less likely to rank people they don't know, this list will obviously be restricted to people who've achieved a fair level of celebrity. A "fair level of celebrity" is defined by being famous enough to have a profile page on Wikipedia or IMDB. Historical figures are accepted IF pictures of them are generally accepted as accurate. Add your own suggestions and this should hopefully be an ever expanding list.

These ladies are the top of the list in the conversation for sexiest woman ever and prettiest woman in the world. These are the hottest women of all time, definitely in the top 10 most beautiful women ever.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Pro Wrestlers of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-pro-wrestlers-of-all-time/sportsyeah
The greatest pro wrestlers of all-time include WrestleMania winners, WWF and WWE champions and TNA favorites. The entertainment of professional wrestling may be staged but all of these professional wrestlers are easily some of the toughest professional fighters inside of the ring or out. This list of all pro wrestlers can be ordered according to their popularity. Just vote for your favorites.

Combining Greco-Roman wrestling with boxing, freestyle wrestling and theater, professional wrestling dates back nearly a century. At first, professional wrestling was more about the actual competition rather than the script. In the early days, it was Lou Thesz who was the most-feared wrestler around. Thesz, who had no trouble going off-script to win a match and keep his title, is considered the first true wrestling superstar and an innovator of the business.

So is the greatest pro wrestler ever? This list will answer that question and your vote matters.

Thesz continued to dominate until the next era of wrestlers entered in the 1950s and 1960s. Top contenders like Bruno Sammartino and Buddy Rogers helped the sport of professional wrestling grow with their flashy and flamboyant performance styles as well as more often than not came out on top of their matches.

Moving into the 1980s and 1990s, wrestling evolved into a performance. The uniforms the wrestlers wore became flashier and the scripted aspects began to increase, as did the fan following. Some of the best wrestlers of all time came from that golden era such as Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Andre the Giant, Ric Flair and Bret Hart. With business booming, professional wrestling only continued to grow in recent years with big names like Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock using their WWE fame to launch their careers.

Professional wrestling may not be for everyone but with a long history of success and a wildly popular following, the likes of WWE and TNA are not going away anytime soon. Any one of the current wrestlers competing today could become the next greatest professional wrestler of all time but until then, we can only enjoy watching them compete to become that.

This list is more than just the 100 greatest wrestlers of all time - we've got 'em all! Add any that might be missing and be sure to vote for all your favorites!

<![CDATA[The Hottest Natural Beauties]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/hottest-natural-beauties
The hottest natural beauties include actresses, models, and singers who seem to have that incredible, effortless beauty that comes from within. Sure, they glam it up with the best of them, but these celebrities without makeup and hair products are still stunningly gorgeous, beautiful natural women. They don't have to rely on all the products to look great. While this list includes a lot of famous natural beauties, it is in no way complete. Feel free to add your favorite natural beauty here, and vote for your personal favorites!

A-list Hollywood actresses aren't always all glitz and glamour: Remove the red carpet-ready trappings, and these natural beautiful women still manage to dazzle with their natural, fresh-faced beauty. Who are the greatest celebrity natural beauties? Halle Berry, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Jennifer Garner come to mind immediately. Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Olsen are among the new generation of hot natural beauties to grace the big screen (and they're also extremely talented actresses).

Not surprisingly, this list of the hottest natural beauties also includes several supermodels. Because really, they're supermodels, meaning they can roll out of bed and look breathtakingly beautiful without any effort whatsoever. No lip gloss, no mascara, no concealer, no nothing! Miranda Kerr, Gisele Bundchen, and Adriana Lima are all shining examples of hot natural beauties. Former supermodels Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford, and Tyra Banks also deserve a coveted spot on this list. They still look amazing!

This list also includes several major stars in music. Rihanna is a natural beauty – she looks beautiful without a stitch of makeup on. The same goes for Beyonce. Carrie Underwood looks incredible no matter what, and Taylor Swift is always a natural, fresh-faced beauty.

Women who are natural beauties might choose to wear makeup, but only to enhance, never to create. The hottest natural beauties look equally stunning in designer couture as they do in a t-shirt and jeans. And one thing the women on this list all have in common: They don't have to try too hard. Ever.
