“Just eat, relax, and watch it happen!”
Bob Ross is certainly up there among the stranger celebrities of all-time. A painter and television host, he wasn’t particularly dynamic at either, but that was his charm. His approach was gentle and calming, and he had an uncanny ability to draw people in with his curly mane and humorous characterizations of his painting subjects. Ross passed away in 1995, but with the help of the internet, his prominence is likely greater than ever. During his life, he apparently built his empire teaching classes and selling painting supplies, but more recently, demand has grown for more far-out Bob Ross items like a Bob Ross: Art of Chill board game and a Bob Ross Chia Pet.
