Remember when I told you that Joan Jett has correctly predicted the last 5 consecutive Super Bowl winners in the annual Scripps Howard Celebrity Super Bowl poll? Well, thanks to Bill O’Reilly ending his 6-game streak this year by picking the Colts, Joan’s 5-game streak is currently the longest-running celebrity streak in the poll. From scrippsnews.com:
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly picked the Colts, ending his streak of six consecutive correct Super Bowl predictions. The longest current streak now belongs to rock star Joan Jett, who has picked the last five Super Bowl winners.
Actor Haley Joel Osment holds the record, picking eight consecutive winners between 2000-07. He correctly picked the Saints this year, marking the 10th time in 11 years that the former star of “The Sixth Sense” has forecast the winning team.
The celebrity who comes closest to predicting the actual score wins the Scripps Howard Super Sage Award. Joan has never won one. This year, that honor went to actor Joe Mantegna, who predicted that The Saints would win 28-17, which was 3 points away from the actual score, 31-17. Joan’s prediction of 45-33 wasn’t that close.
