Normally, you wouldn't think of Waterloo and Cedar Falls as a "hot bed" of celebrities, but we've certainly had our fair share over the years.

This list of "Top 10 Celebrities" that were BORN in either Waterloo or Cedar Falls includes professional athletes, movie stars, popular singers, a successful businessman, and a certain legendary, gold medal winning wrestling coach.

If I expanded this list to include all of the Cedar Valley, it could have easily exceeded 40 or more. It was hard enough getting this list down to 10, as I left off a few notable celebrities. On my "honorable mention" list were former first lady Lou Henry Hoover and actress Julie Adams. But now, let's get to it, keep scrolling and we'll count them down, starting with #10.
