Holiday Family Feud Game: Who'd you like to be caught under the mistletoe with?

Thank you to all you Pinterest Lovers!  My Holiday Family Feud Game has reached 127,000 page views {**as of November 26, 2013} from countries around the globe such as Spain, Ukraine, Brazil, and Australia.  
That blows my mind.
Survey says...classic games are always in style.

I have created a printable PDF version of the answers just for you.

Each Christmas we have something special planned just for the adults of our family.  As parents, uncles, aunts, and grandparents we are thrilled at the joy that we help provide for the kidlings in our family to celebrate Christmas, our favorite being our magical annual Polar Express Christmas Eve followed by a special devotional including the reading of the Birth of Christ to remind us all of the true reason for the season and provide another opportunity for us as adults to testify of that to them.  But as adults we also look forward to a time to be kids ourselves-by ourselves, usually in the form of a game compiled by myself.  In the past the basis for the games have been derived from our favorite movies, our unique Dix family vernacular, or we have been the subjects ourselves. This is of course accompanied by tear-jerking laughter and intense competition, some images and moments I will never forget!  {Dad, ta-dah! and Luke trying to shake his non-existent buzzer}

This year I thought it would be fun to revamp an old classic and do a Holiday Family Feud Game.

Of course this is where you come in...
As you know each answer on the show is proceeded by the words, "Survey Says..."
And the survey was of course asked to 100 people with the top answers on the board.
So would you be 1 of those 100 people and please answer the following 10 questions/inquiries...?
Pretty please...
Once I reach a 100 I will post the top answers so that anyone who wishes to use this little game may enjoy it with their own wonderful family this Christmas season.

Please make a comment with your answers labeled 1, 2, 3... you get the idea:)
Thank you so much for your assistance in compiling my little game.

***Thank you to everyone who helped me compile these results!!  I had so much fun reading everyone's responses:)  The top answers from 100 people surveyed listed below each inquiry.  I will let each of you determine what to do them.  Some answers could be combined, but I'll leave that up to you.  Click here for a link to the basic rules for playing Family Feud.  We usually play men vs women - a little dangerous but loads of heated fun.  I hope this will bring lots of laughter and energy to your holiday celebrations.***

This question produced a wide range of answers.  Was fun to read everyone's crushes;).  Since I was not able to question 100 men or 100 women for these questions, if you'd like to continue my quest, I can email you all the responses so you can continuing tallying til you reach 100.

Wishing you lots of "survey said" and "good answer!  good answer!" this holiday season.
oh and for #10 I would love to be able to do separate questions for answers from both men and women, so ask the men in your life and you can label it 10 b.  and no jealousy allowed.  i already know that Mike's answer would be Kate Beckinsale and I'm ok with it:)
