    Magnus Carlsen is no celebrity except in the chess community or in Norway.

    I agree.  My question is, how many people worldwide are in the "chess community" that finds Carlsen a celebrity? 

    Norway has a population of about five million -- the same size as Scotland.  Add to that the number in the chess community that considers Carlsen, a celebrity -- what, maybe 70,000 people tops?

    So halve the population of Norway to get rid of the people you know aren't paying attention (the young, old, fishermen, Vikings, troll hunters etc) and then you have a figure of 2,570,000 in the world that considers Carlsen a celebrity.

    Magnus Carlsen is one of the ugliest people I've seen. Bobby Fischer was somewhat good looking. In fact, all the top chess players in history are ten times better looking than him

    .

    The singer Barbara Striesand admits she had a crush on Bobby Fischer, when they went to high school together.

    She never spoke up, though. So nothing happened.

    So, 2.57 million people in the entire world consider Carlsen a "celebrity".  I bet that figure was one-hundred times higher for Fischer and Kasparov, even back when the world population was much smaller.
