The Contenders

11 Robert Maudsley Robert Maudsley

He's getting up there in age and is probably on the verge of death. It would be interesting to go back in time a few years or so and meet him. Despite his reputation and years in solitary confinement, he's surprisingly normal in many ways. And he has shown signs of mental stability over the past few years, although it is very unlikely he will ever be released. He has a tragic story and he only killed one person outside of prison, and three behind bars, and all were criminals of sorts, so I personally wouldn't call him a serial killer. He seems like an interesting person and I actually feel sorry for him.

12 Ozzy Osbourne Ozzy Osbourne John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''.

He's in his 70s now and likely not be around much longer. I'm a huge Ozzy fan and I've always wanted to meet him, although I probably never will. If I could, I would go back in time and meet him. I would ask for his autograph and maybe even a picture with him.

13 Steven Tyler Steven Tyler Steven Tyler is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and former television music competition judge, best known as the lead singer of the Boston-based rock band Aerosmith, in which he also plays the harmonica, and occasional piano and percussion.

That would be awesome! Meet the whole band would be even cooler.

14 Helen Keller
15 Vincent Price Vincent Price Vincent Leonard Price, Jr. was an American actor, well known for his distinctive voice and performances in horror films.

He was one hell of an actor. And a legend. He died the same year that I was born at the age of 82. Of he were still alive today he'd be over 100 years old. If I could time travel it would be nice to meet him while he was still alive.

16 Bruce Lee Bruce Lee Bruce Lee was a Hong Kong American martial artist, action film actor, martial arts instructor, philosopher, filmmaker, and the founder of Jeet Kune Do.

I would take martial arts lessons from him.

Almost all of my favorite celebrities/people are getting up there in age and probably won't be around much longer. If I could, I would go back in time a few years or so when they're a bit younger. I would talk for a while and try to get an autograph, maybe even a picture with them. Marilyn Manson is one person I'd love to meet. He's a good musician and a good person. And really smart.
