But they didn’t make our list of the top five celebrities who live in sunny Las Vegas. Find out who made the list.

1 Andre Agassi and Stefanie Graf

This power couple has played an important role in the Vegas giving community. Andre Agassi, born and raised in Vegas, is considered one of the greatest tennis players of all time with one of the best service returners in the game. He won eight Grand Slams in his career. His wife, Stefani Graf, is no slouch on the courts either, winning an astounding 22 Grand Slam titles in her career and showing incredible diversity on the court. The power couple has the Andre Agassi Foundation For Education along with the Grand Slam for Children held annually to raise funds for the organization and one of the hottest tickets in Vegas. The couple resides in Summerlin with their two children.

2 Holly Madison

Ever since the former Hugh Hefner girlfriend took over in “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood Resort, she’s become a mouthpiece for all things Vegas. Have a show opening? Holly Madison will be there. Charity event for kids? She’ll show up. Aside from her goodwill for Sin City, Madison has a reality show, “Holly’s World,” that she films here as a follow up to “The Girls Next Door.” Some have even hinted that Madison should run for mayor. While she doesn’t plan to, politics may be in her future.

3 Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The second best pound-for-pound fighter in the world could have his own reality show with the shenanigans he’s been involved with. Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. won nine world titles in five different boxing classes and remains undefeated as a pro. He has 41 wins, 25 coming from TKOs. While not necessarily a reality show, he does have HBO “24/7,” a preview of Mayweather’s fights. Here’s crossing your fingers to a rematch with Manny Paquiao.

4 Penn Jillette

We love his outspoken ways. We love his show at the Rio with Teller. We love his show “Penn & Teller: Bullshit!” Heck, we loved him on “Dancing with the Stars.” Any way you look at it, the 6-foot-6 comedian and illusionist Penn Jillette is a magical addition to Vegas.

5 Brandon Flowers

Who would you call upon to open the Joint at the Hard Rock and the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas other than a local musician? Brandon Flowers, the lead singer and keyboardist of The Killers, fits the bill. He just released his debut solo album “Flamingo” this fall.
