Dutch celebrities - who are they?

I just found a Dutch Celebrity Internet Quiz and I don't know anyone on the list:

I don't watch much Dutch TV, just a little bit, the language practice exhausts me. The only Dutch celebs I know are:

  • Robert Jensen
  • Ruud van Nistelrooy (Footballer, in England)
  • John de Mol
  • Queen Beatrix and family
  • Famke Janssen (from X-Men)

Who else should I know?

As far as I can tell Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsey are the most famous Celebrity Chefs here, except that bald fat guy, and I have no idea what his name is....

My random famous dutchies:

Golden Earing - Some Rock Band (english language)who's songs escape me at the moment.

Barney (van Barnevelt) - not actually his name but he's one of the most famous darts players in the world. (youll find him on SBS6 randomly playing against some british guy)

other than that.. probably some speedskaters we should know and other random rich people.

Gerard Joling surely the greatest Dutch pop star - his big hit is Maak me Gek! and he is a Topper, whose concert was the campest thing I had ever seen. This was however largely due to Joling, who transmitts innuendo, even if you can't speak Dutch

Oh yeah, I've seen him before on the Dutch X Factor!! I just didn't know his name. Now I'm enlightened, thanks (or was it Celebrity Dancing on Ice)

Here's his website:

My friend and I were just asking ourselves this question and all I could come up with was van Nistelrooy, and of course, Jensen ;-)

BTW just found your blog and looking forward to reading more...

The fat bald cook is called Herman Den Blijker and he's the best.
