What celebrities have you met in Vegas??

I love Vegas- 31 days until trip # 18 in the past 4 years!! When I first went I thought celebrities were everywhere- so not true. Anyways- I made it a hobby to collect pictures with celebrities as the past couple years went on. He is my list:

Carrot Top- The picture of this is actually hilarious- he even had a little birthday celebration for me.

Joel McHale

Ron Howard

David Spade

Holly Madison

Kendra Wilkenson

Flo Rida

Flava Flav

Robert Kline

Dave Attell

MY FAVORITE - VANILLA ICE - and he gave me- and only me and my girlfriend VIP to his show- I mean seriously tons of people were in line at Carnival Court and we were on his VIP list- the only people on it. He is awesome!!

I have more and can post pics--- I know I will be getting some stuff for calling some of the above celebrities. :)

I saw Chris Rock shopping at the Forum, Caesars Palace. I just said Hey Chris whats up in passing, and then went on my way. I didn't want to bug him for a picture or an autograph.

A few years ago, I met Elvis at a bar at Margaritaville on the upper patio. Chatted with him for a while. Really nice guy. My wife and I got out picture with him and he tried to get one of my chicken wings when the bartender was taking the pic.

David Niven's nephew used to deal Craps at Casino Royale back when they had Mini-Tubs.

That's like a celebrity-once-removed.

He's a really nice guy.

The "Biggest" celebrity I ever saw was "Mini-Me", aka Vern Troyer. He was playing Blackjack at the Rio. Had a table to himself...security wouldn't let anyone else on. These days, he'd probably be happy for some company.

Saw Jeff Gordon & Rusty Wallace at the Hard Rock on a NASCAR weekend.

Those were my only "Brushes with Greatness".

Ran into Howie Mandel at the PH Casino. Had more celebrity run-ins here in Chicago, though, than anywhere else.

iluvmycharger - Please post your pics! We would love to see them. The only celebrety I met (through glass) is David Bechham. He was shopping at the Adidas store on the strip and they closed it. You could see him shop through the windows.

I assumed most celebrities gambling in the VIP areas of casinos. How did you get to meet so many?

Tony Curtis heading into Prime as we were leaving. He was very sweet and seemed happy to be recognized. He looked great. It was a few years before he died--maybe 2007 or thereabout. The woman he was with doesn't look the pics I've seen of his last wife, but maybe she was younger, thinner, tanner and more dressed up at the time. ;)

Played blackjack with Mario Andretti in 1980 at Dell Webb's The Mint when he was in town for the inaugural Caesars Palace Grand Prix. Despite a couple dozen trips to Vegas since then, not a single other celebrity sighting, other than Big Bird on Fremont Street.... : )
