50 People to Watch: A Quiz!

A teaser quiz to learn more about this year's 50 People to Watch list


So Senior Editor Erin Meanley beat me this afternoon at lunch (ME!) when our staff gave us a little quiz about the 50 People to Watch list we just sent to the printer in our January issue last night. I think the quiz writers were biased ... or that I was just too excited about the party (details announced TODAY!) to remember all the details of the story.

Without giving away too much (grab the issue on newsstands December 23rd), here's a little sneak-peak quiz on this year's list.
