It is that time once again, THGers. The time to unveil the finalists for, and eventually the winner of, THG's prestigious, arbitrary, 7th Annual Celebrity of the Year honor.
Between now and the end of 2013, we will be counting down the 10 stars who provided us with the best moments, stories, scandals and entertainment value.
We kicked off the countdown earlier with a smoldering Kate Upton at #10. Now we present our Celebrity of the Year Finalist #9 ... Walter White!
Strange as it may seem to put a fictional TV character on our year-end list ... this is not your average TV character. There will never be another Walter White.
Developed by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and portrayed by Bryan Cranston, Walt (and later his Heisenberg persona) became iconic.
Once a promising chemist and co-founder of a multi-billion dollar company, we first met Walter as a meek, nerdy, down on his luck chemistry teacher.
