Barbara Walters’s ‘Most Fascinating’ List Feels Familiar And Boring



Barbara Walters will be doing her last end of the year special for ABC this year, and you’d think she would want to go out with a bang. For the 2013 edition of ‘Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year,’she went for boring and annoying instead.


Miley Cyrus is on the list, because, ugh, as is Jennifer Lawrence, because I guess we’re stuck with her until some other white girl is forced upon us. Then there’s the cast of A&E‘s ‘Duck Dynasty,’ ABC News‘ own Robin Roberts and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. If you’ve been paying attention to any of Kanye West‘s nonsensical rants of late (Ed. Note: Of always?), you remember he said that he thinks his daughter North deserves to be thought of as royalty, or some mess like that. So he’ll be happy that he and his fiancee Kim Kardashian were included with Prince George of Cambridge, whose uncle Harry was featured on the list last year.

Walters will reveal her pick for the most fascinating person of the year during the 90 minute special which will air on December 18 at 9:30 p.m. ET on ABC. Who do you think it will be this year? Maybe she’ll pull a Time magazine and tell the world it’s us.
