Barbara Walters Unveils (Most of) Her 'Most Fascinating People of the Year' NY Daily News
Now we know who nine of the 10 people are on Barbara Walters' list of the "Most Fascinating People of the Year" for 2013. The New York Daily News reports that the ABC News veteran has unveiled the list -- all of them except whoever will be at No. 1.
Walters, 84, is saving the big reveal of No. 1 for her annual telecast, set for Dec. 18.
The youngest member of the list is Britain's Prince George, the Royal Baby -- who's even younger than another youngster on the list: twerk queen Miley Cyrus, who recently turned 21.
Others on the list are Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, who share one of the 10 spots, Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and ABC anchor Robin Roberts. The stars of "Duck Dynasty" made the list, as did long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad, Pope Francis and NSA leaker Edward Snowden.
The list appears to be the last for Walters, who began the tradition in 1993. She has announced she will retire next year.
Commenting earlier on retirement, Walters said: "I do not want to appear on another program or climb another mountain. I want instead to sit on a sunny field and admire the very gifted women -- and OK, some men, too -- who will be taking my place."
