Six Degrees

It's time for our weekly viewer challenge, the Six Degrees of Separation game. This week we're asking you to come up with connections between "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe and the latest addition to the Real Madrid football club, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Here are the rules: You come up with 5 other people (for six connections total) between these two, and post your ideas in the comments section. The most creative connection wins, and will be featured on Friday's show. We'll also send the winner a very special Connect the World prize.

To get you started on the right track, here is last week's winning submission from our viewer Djalma De Azevedo, who connected Michael Jackson to ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya: 

In his will, Michael Jackson named his close friend, former Supremes singer Diana Ross as the guardian of his children if his mother can not care for them. Ross was once interviewed by CNN's very own Larry King, who has also grilled U.S. President Barack Obama. Obama met with Brazilian President Lula Da Silva earlier this year for trade talks. Da Silva discussed Latin America's relations with the U.S. with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez back in May. And finally, Mr. Chavez's has thrown his support behind ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya.  

So you think you can do better than Djalma?  Put your thinking caps on... and remember Daniel Radcliffe to Cristiano Ronaldo with five people between them, no more, no less.

Thanks for playing!

    If "Six Degrees of Separation" game is the Game of the shortest connection then:

    Daniel Radcliffe obviously knows (as a celebrity) prime minister Gordon Brown, Cristiano Ronaldo probably knows President Aníbal Cavaco Silva of Portugal and both leaders know each other.
