We recently revisited one of our most popular posts of 2014 by finding out what questions Google wants answered about ten of Colorado's biggest celebrities right now. But our fair state has more stars than that, as you'll see below in our latest look at the questions most frequently posed about Colorado luminaries by people using the search engine.

As before, we deployed a simple formula — typing the word "is" and a noteworthy name into the query box, thereby generating a list of the most popular searches for that person.

Our previous roster included folks from the worlds of sports (John Elway, Von Miller), politics (Cory Gardner, John Hickenlooper), entertainment (T.J. Miller) and local TV (Kyle Clark). There's a similar mix this time around — and more amusing and/or head-scratching responses, too.

Check out the photo-illustrated results below.
