Near the end of every year, Barbara Walters airs her Most Fascinating People feature on ABC.
And every year the list is more and more ridiculous (in 2010, David Petraeus topped a group that included the Jersey Shore cast), simply a rundown of who has been in the news, as opposed to rankings of individuals who are actually interesting.
2011 is no different, as the journalist has revealed nine of her final 10, saving the number-one spot for viewers of her December 14 special. Let's take a look at the finalists, shall we?
Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian: They marry, procreate and Tweet for money. Their total and complete lack of personality is kind of fascinating, we guess.
Simon Cowell: One of the world's most successful music executives. Wears tight t-shirts. Speaks his mind.
Derek Jeter: Perhaps the most boring, least fascinating athlete on the planet. He plays very hard, is respectful of the game and, by all accounts, is a very nice guy. Does any of that make him an especially interesting individual?
Donald Trump: Okay, his hair is pretty fascinating.
Katy Perry: She sings fun pop ballads and wears weird outfits. Is anyone fascinated by the artist herself? Or do you just wanna bop around to "Last Friday Night?"
Pippa Middleton: Acceptable. The public is clearly fascinated by her and for good reason. Total cutie alert!
Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson: They are actors who portray a gay couple. How fascinating, right?!? Think it's a coincidence they also star on an ABC show?
So... who will be number-one? Our vote is for Lady Gaga. How about yours?
