Here's a list of English majority speaking countries in the northern hemisphere for everyone's reference.

Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Ireland, Jamaica, Malta, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, United Kingdom, United States of America

I'm finally starting to appreciate the scrutiny under hair colour question, in looking for a candidate there truly is many different ways to interpret how to answer that. Under a less qualified response Rihanna would have technically qualified (but I checked and she's not sporting the blonde look at the moment so it's not).

Point of clarification question though, did we determine if we counting altered hair colour for this response or is the intention that blonde is part of her natural look? I'm understanding that the intention is that this person is blonde at the moment and whether it's natural or not is irrelevant.
A manjority-black country would not fit since it's extremely unlikely to find a blonde person there.

That's a very sweeping statement and not entirely accurate.

As just one example, there is a large German-descended population living in parts of Jamaica, many of whom are blond / blonde due to their ancestry.

I did not try to make any judgements other than “is some or all of that hair blonde?”
If blonde highlights count then we're in deep trouble.

Wow. How did you check to see if Rhianna has blonde hair at the moment?

I choose to believe that you are best friends with Rihanna and you asked her to send you a quick selfie.

The me in your mind sounds like a really cool guy. The kinda guy you'd wanna give centers to.

I wouldn't rule it out, but I do agree with the popular opinion that they're probably the best odds are they're from Canada or UK (given it's already confirmed they're not Irish or USA).

Can you confirm that we do in fact still have two remaining questions? I thought Foxcastle asked the 19th and we're stalling for the last so people can get remaining free guesses in.

For any remaining questions, probably narrowing down to if she is born in North America (or alternatively Europe) or else confirming 'has worked as a professional singer' may be a worthwhile narrowing (although still leaving a fairly wide field).

I should probably go back and check all those IMDB lists but I don't have time right now, so here's a wild, crazy, shot-in-the-dark, free guess:

Adele.

She was born in 88, has a few acting credits on IMDB (but not too many).

Lots of blonde hair as well, and the one non-music video acting credit was for a show on ABC.

Since there doesn't seem to be a queue for additional questions, I'll go ahead and toss one out for clarification sake.

Has this person had celebrity level success as a professional singer?

Yeah, forgot about the "in a movie" clue. Dammit.

On the Canadian side, I went through the singers on this list of 316 people and narrowed it down to only two candidates: Claire Elise Boucher and Amber Marshall.

Someone want to search for English, Welsh and Scottish lasses who fit the criteria? Once we have a shortlist we can then craft the final question in a way that will bring home the win.

I could ask you to check every image in these two categories and all of their subcategories to see if the actress appears, since that would be an objective question, but I'll let you formulate the question yourself.

Basically, I want to know if the actress has a subcategory named after them in either of these categories, or appears in the filename of the images that are not in any any of the subcategories.

And yes, I know that someone reading this thread could mess with us by editing those 'lists', but I can live with that risk. Just let us know whether she is 'listed' as of the moment that you load the webpages for the first time.

And yes, I know that these are not really lists, but stay with me here!

Balki Bartokomous, let us know if this is still a 'no'.
