Has reality TV run out of fascinating characters? After talking to the Kardashians last year and the cast of "Jersey Shore" the year before that, Barbara Walters' list of 2012's "Most Fascinating People" is notably reality show- free.
Instead, Walters' 90-minute special, which is now in its 20th season, will include:
The No. 1 "Most Fascinating" person will be revealed on the special when it airs December 12 at 9:30 p.m. on ABC. Our money's on James, but who do you think it'll be?
frizzing up this is not good.
One Direction? ( another boy band >yawn<), Seth McFarlan? ( about as current as a pet rock) Ben Afleck? ( whats so facinating about an average actor) Maybe we have run out of facinating people after all. If an author of a cheesey raunchy book is at the top of the list, then we are in serious trouble.
My money for Most Fascinating is on President Obama, for surviving a tough reelection campaign. Go Barack!
PSY will be #1 (Gangnam Style singer/artist) my bet.
I think Gabrielle Giffords will most likely be selected as the person of the year, or at least the way in which The Barbara Walters production might approach it, possibly Michael Phelps for his spectacular Olympic performance. I cant believe One Direction would make such a list, so inconsequential, in a kind of Kardashian way.
meeting Barbara Walters a couple of times...very smart lady, very dry funny sense of humor. she's not the
rough exterior everyone thinks she is. we had alot of fun at that holiday luncheon, regis did some christmas tunes.
susan lucci was there, henry winkler was there (made alot of money for abc as the fonz), news people etc.
Bill Evans was most fun! there luncheons are the best!
they are real. If you never opened that big mouth of yours we'd be hysterial laughing right now!
we love seth and we feels he's funny and very cute at the same time. we like gabby and we find her spot on and never thought she was lame at all.
Thos One Direction kids re all gay.Their fans pretty much know it(or the ysaid that they wouldnt be surprised AT AlL if any of them came out of the closet.
Anywho.All those people listed are stupid and irrelevant.Gabby Douglas an author.PLEASE!!!!! Just cause someone ghost wrote a book for her.She is LAME
Seth Mcfarlen makes the worst show(family guy) EVER!!!! Only dumb 12 year-olds think it's funny.Or people think it's funny because they hear so much about it,and they are like "Woah,look how naughty this cartoon is.!! Crazy!!"
there are still a couple that are in production–i saw one of them in the grocery store...did babs tap you phone too?
yea i think she did..they all laugh at babs–a&p laughter.
get a life Barbara, retire and leave young people your job. Plastic surgery may help you for a while but soon you will be put into a Museum as an old mommie
someday you'll look back on this comment and realize how insensitive and destructive it is. never mind outright wrong.
but for now...enjoy your youth.
Who cares about babs wawa.
i love those people there are exciting to us also.
your referring to the barbra walters –
your right irwin
Hands down...most fascinating person of the year is Malala Yousafzai.
Pop culture at its stupidest! Why not Honey Boo Boo while they're at it! The worst end-of-year list imaginable!
as we have said 100 times...you will never ever be her...not even for 5 minutes will you ever have the honor of being her and the kind of woman she is.
i will personally get this sting operation in control. trolls are fun – you people are just skum picking on an innocent woman because your jealous of her–keep laughing whoever you are...because as the lord is watching me
today tomorrow next year...i will have those names of who makes fun of this woman on this computer
i will personally get this sting operation in control. trolls are fun - you people are just skum picking on an innocent woman because your jealous of her–keep laughing whoever you are...because as the lord is watching me

called her black lives in a basement, no money, no good a loser who the heck do you people think you are
you've blogs have been saved for months–this blog sting operation is over...your a disgrace to
society–you all seem to know each other but she does no know any of you....we will....your horrible
bloggers and your not trolls you get off on hurting people...(9002)
Never heard of any of these people.
wait for the phone call
I'm most fascinated with LiLo's bewbs!
yea, I like the freckled cleaverage too!
An old jewess interviewing nobodies. How fascinating.
That comments says more about you than Ms. Walters.
seth macfarlane is hilarious-i love his cartoons-family guy etc. chris christie is hilarious as well
Chris Christie. Wins by a ton. Personal aside to the Gov. You've got three years to drop the weight before you begin your run for President. Let's see. That would be 156 weeks. At a pound a week, you would still be a heavyweight. Maybe you ought to strive for 2 pounds a week. Try Weight Watchers. Try Slim Fast. Try not being a pig.
you did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The most fascinating person is not identified beforehand and not in the list of those on the show.
She has done amasing job in her carrier
everbody knows - but we still keep doing it...
good for barb
Wow, so you exclude Psy but you put in that excuse of a human being Chris Christie?
I could write an entire book on what is wrong with America and the continuing slide of intelligence in this country. But why put in the effort when your comment says it all.
Yes, but will you do anything about it other than take the time to insult someone else's intelligence? Thought not.
The most fascinating person this year will be the Obamas again for gaining re-election. I'm sure the cast of Twilight or at least Rob & Kristen will be on the list, you'll see. They never release the entire list, but I'm sure they'll be up there. Maybe Mitt Romney will be on the list as well for saying so many stupid things like "binders full of women". I think Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert should be on the list for making this election so hallarious.
That Argo film isn't accurate at all, and doesn't give proper credit to the Canadian Ambassador and his wife and staff.
As for Walters, time to go!
Considering that last year the list included the Kardashians and the cast of the Jersey Shore, I would not be surprised in the least if Barbara Walters picked Honey Boo Boo as the most fascinating person of the year!
II honestly thought she'd pick Honey Boo Boo because Barbara WaWa has lost all credibility – sad to watch the decline.
ME ME ME. I'm extra fascinating. No school agin tomorrow. YES !
Cartoon Network here I come ! No bedtime tonite !
Agree with you. Except for Hilary Clinton, everyone else on this list are about as interesting as the average rock.
thanks for the insight.
