Celebrity Anagrams

Listed below are nonsensical two-word anagrams of 14 different celebrities’ names. Most, but not all, of the celebrities are from the worlds of entertainment and sports. The anagrams’ word lengths have no relation to the lengths of the celebrities’ first and last names; for example, SWANKY TEE could be an anagram of KANYE WEST, while WON TATAMIS could be NAOMI WATTS.

2. BULGIER CAMERA
3. HUMANE LAND
4. MARTIN JOBBED
5. BANNER VOID
6. JOIN DEWBERRY
7. MILKS PINOCHLE

10. INVADE TRUNK
11. NASAL INACTION

14. SELLER ARRIVED

After rearranging the letters in each pair of words to get a two-word name by which a celebrity is best known, enter the name from left to right in the corresponding line of the grid below, without putting a space between the first and last names. The letters in the shaded squares will then form another celebrity anagram, and the celebrity whose name can be formed from those letters is the answer to the contest.

The Solution

The grid of unscrambled names is shown below. The shaded column, MEADOW ENLISTEE, anagrams to MADELEINE STOWE, which was the answer to the contest. Five winners were chosen at random from among those submitting the correct answer.
