The 20 Greatest Georgelanders was a Georgeland television special broadcast on October 25, 2004 on GTV. The program, hosted by John Tyne and Melissa Hobbes, counted down the twenty greatest Georgelanders, as voted by a phone-in and internet poll. 54,393 responses were recorded. The program was the most-watched program of 2004.

Rules for Nomination[]

Candidates could only be nominated if they were deceased. They were also only eligible if they had been either a Georgeland citizen or a resident of the country prior to 1929 (when citizenship was introduced).


  • Charlton Robards received enough votes to be placed on the list, but was disqualified by means of being still alive when the vote was taken. Had his votes been counted, he would have ranked #15.
  • Susan O'Byrne would have ranked #20 had her votes been counted (O'Byrne was still alive at the time).
  • Scientist Patrick O'Healey was disqualifed for not being a Georgeland citizen (he was actually Irish). O'Healey's disqualification was seen as unfair by many, as he lived the majority of his adult life in Scoita. Had O'Healey not been disqualifed, he would have ranked #7 on the list.
