OMG! I can't belive what happened..............?

have this project i English called Simpson Island. What it is, you pick a person in history and pretend to be them (living or dead) and you are on an island (imaginary) where you are with 5 people and have to decide who is king or Queen eliminating 1 person at a time. (the jury picks) You try to try to debate why you should be queen or king and the others shouldn't. Heres the problem: I need to (by sunday) pick 2 choices of any single famous person in the WHOLE WORLD IN ALL OF HISTORY (Female) I am stuck on who to pick! It can be from sports, music, religious, presidential, ect.

    Pick people who are known for being controversial. That way you'll have plenty to write about as far as the debating part is concerned. For females try Liza Minnelli, Cher, Martha Stewart or Jane Fonda... but I would most definitely choose John F. Kennedy for king only because he was assassinated way before his time and wasn't able to be the leader the nation saw him to be.

    Oprah- She would definatley get to be queen, she's charitable, fair and compassionate.

    Princess Diana- She was already a princess, she was very loved, she was charitable and compassionate.

    Good luck with your assignment. It sounds like a fun one. Not like the boring stuff we got at school.
