Get ready to prove just how big a fan you really are! Show you're up to speed with who's who in this enticing lineup of famous athlete-celebrity couples.

We may never fully understand why athletes and celebrities go so well together but it probably has something to do with the fact that each is famous in their own right. Whether they are strutting their stuff on the red carpet or out and about on a casual date, the combined energy of these high-profile couples just can't be missed.

Some of these famous couples intrigue us because they burned so hot and bright for just a short while before petering out to final "Goodbyes." Just like the baseball legend and the iconic actress - remember them? Sure you do! 

Other athlete-celebrity relationships have certainly stood the test of time. Yes, we're thinking of an ice hockey legend now, but can you recall his longtime "other half"? What about the soccer star and his "spicy" lady? They have been going strong for quite a while, too - know who we mean?

While some couples prefer to shy away from the limelight, there are those who enjoy giving fans an eyeful of their powerful athlete-celebrity chemistry. We're sure you remember the NFL star who proposed in front of a live studio audience to the actress to whom he would end up being married for decades. You remember who she is, right?

While you don't have to be a tabloid junkie to figure out all of these athlete-celebrity pairings, keeping abreast with what the rich and famous are up to will certainly help. So, are you ready for the challenge? Go ahead and prove you're the #1 biggest fan by taking this quiz right now!
