After attending the auditions for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in September, we wanted to know which lucky man was selected to don the top hat and tails for the latest edition of "The Greatest Show on Earth," set to wind its way across the country next year. Nobody, it turns out. Previous ringmaster Tyron McFarlan — No. 34 in Ringling's history — decided not to run away from the circus. He'll command the 137th edition of the show.
