tricky one would usually say whoever was US president but Biden is relatively low profile. Same as ever: Whoever is Pope Whoever is American President Whoever is King of England in that order 0 Vote up! Unless you're in China, in which case: Whoever is President of China 0 Vote up! Putin? Seriously. 0 Vote up! Joe Pasquale 1 Vote up! Trump probably. Famous includes infamous, and infamous is a lot easier than famous. 0 Vote up! Ah yes, what kaulbach said. 0 Vote up! Kim kardashian. 0 Vote up! who is the pope atm? 0 Vote up! I mean other than knowing a person as "the pope" 1 Vote up! I reckon more people would recognise and name the Queen than the Pope or the current President. I tend to agree Trump is now the most recognisable person on the planet. 0 Vote up! There are 1.36 billion Roman Catholics (approx. 20% of the population). They could all name Pope Frankie for a start. 0 Vote up! take away the hat and garb then who would even recognise, let alone be able to name, the pope? If we were to count up the number of people who would be able to name a person from a picture, then Xi would probably get the most. 0 Vote up! There is no King of England. HTH 0 Vote up! The last King of England was King Billy - bit of a stretch to say he’s the most famous person in the world. In parts of Glasgow and Belfast perhaps. 0 Vote up! I think the Queen would have beaten Xi. Have you seen the foriegn press? Her death was front page in every country in the world, not sure same could be said for Xi. 0 Vote up! In the UK I reckon Kim Jong-un is better known than Xi. 0 Vote up! Lionel Messi or Aamir Kahn 0 Vote up! That bloke in that film about the thing. You know, he was in that TV programme too. You know.... bloody hell you know. No not him. He was also in Willow or that weird one that Sean Connery got his cõck out in. 0 Vote up! is this restricted to the UK? In which case nether Kim Jong-Un nor Pres Xi would be the most well-known. But there are billions of chinese people and people living in asian countries who would.recognise Xi. Guy, the queen is dead now, FYI. RTQ. 0 Vote up! Lady Gaga. 0 Vote up! Elon Musk 0 Vote up! yeah, soz, didnt make sense to bring the queen back into it Kimmy. I reckon Trump would trump Xi. 0 Vote up! Roll on Friday's 3 Ducks. 0 Vote up! Putin gets all the headlines these days. Sorry Donald you're old news. 0 Vote up! Annabel Chong was pretty well known. 1 Vote up! Andrew Tate. 0 Vote up! *pops on conspiracy nutter hat* Elvis, though I suppose technically he doesn't qualify as he's living with the others in the reptilian moon-base 0 Vote up! I reckon Obama. Xi gets the Chinese vote, but unless they're into foreign affairs others won't know him. The pope is only going to be known to Catholics. There are a lot of them, but I don't think the average non Catholic could name him. Same problem as Xi. Putin is a good shout, but I suspect that large parts of the world just don't give a damn. What does the average South American, Indian or African care about what a regional power likes Russia is doing. Like other people have said, Biden is a bit low profile for a US president. Trump is obviously more recent than Obama and has his celebrity status. However, I think Obama might edge it because of the sheer amount of publicity that came with being the first non-white president. I bet that also gets him a much larger level of name recognition in the non-white world even among those who aren't really political. 0 Vote up! Cristiano Ronaldo 0 Vote up! Paul McCartney 0 Vote up! "There is no King of England. HTH" Well I live in England, and I have a King. Newsflash: there's a King of Scotland too. 1 Vote up! Biden and the Pope, for sure loads and loads of catbolics, and anyone american is famous eh 0 Vote up! Based on Twitter followers I conclude Obama. 0 Vote up! Trump 0 Vote up! Obama is a good shout. 0 Vote up! I bet the real answer is some K-pop singer we've never heard of. 0 Vote up! Messi/Ronaldo, I think you'd be hard pushed to find someone who didn't know/hadn't heard of one of those two or what they did, across a greater degree of age ranges than, say, Obama. 0 Vote up! Tiny Tom Cruise 0 Vote up! Jordan fooking Peterson. 0 Vote up! Been thinking about this. King Chas. Famous for 70 years in his own right, mega famous mother, mega famous ex wife, famous son. Big ears. 0 Vote up! Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson 0 Vote up! I also think Obama Xi could probably walk down the street here and not be recognised 0 Vote up! Annabel Chong was pretty well known. In the 'biblical' sense, right? 0 Vote up! What counts as famous here? If it is 'you show people a photo and they know his name' then there is no way it is the Pope. If the answer 'the Pope' counts then maybe he is in the running if he is wearing full Papal regalia in the photo but that is more the office being famous than the man. Otherwise he has no chance. It's definitely Putin or Trump for the win. Probably Trump. 0 Vote up! I'm telling you, it's Tiny Tom Cruise! 1 Vote up! The roller blade dude. 0 Vote up! Messi et M.Jordan.
