THE TEN MOST FASCINATING PEOPLE OF 2013 | ACCORDING TO BARBARA WALTERS

The Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013 | According to Barbara Walters

If you checked out ABC’s annual special The Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013 on Wednesday night, chosen by legendary journalist Barbara Walters and her executive team, you would know who made the list!  We want to go over these top picks and then you can let us know who tops your list for the ten most fascinating people of 2013!

In order from the tenth most fascinating person to the MOST fascinating person of 2013, check out the list below:

Miley Cyrus | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

What would any list of the fascinating people of 2013 be without Miley Cyrus?  She sat down with Barbara Walters and explained her transition from Hannah Montana to the young twenty-one year old she is today.  Miley goes on to say that her plan to get people talking about and buying her music has worked for her thus far!  Miley Cyrus definitely would’ve been on our list of the top ten most fascinating people of 2013!

The Royal Prince George | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

The Royal Prince George, son of Prince William and his wife Kate might be the youngest person to ever make the Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013!  The world followed his entrance into this world very closely…and his family presented him with beauty and grace.

Edward Snowden | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

Edward Snowden, not only the most wanted man in America, but also one of the ten most fascinating people of 2013.  What more is there to say?  The man that worked for the NSA blew the whistle on some very confidential information about espionage and the monitoring of Americans’ internet and phone activity.  Some call him a traitor and he is now in Russia seeking permanent political asylum.  Would Edward Snowden have made your list of most fascinating people of this year?

Duck Dynasty | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

Truth be told, I have never seen Duck Dynasty and they probably wouldn’t have made it onto my own personal ten most fascinating people of 2013 list.  But, they did make it onto Barbara Walter’s list because they and their story are fascinating.

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, otherwise known as Kimye, have made Barbara Walter’s list of the Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013.  They have both separately been on the her list before and with the birth of their baby North West and their Bound 2 video they have reappeared!  Are you over Kimye or would they make your list too?

Robin Roberts | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

One of the most endearing and courageous stories of 2013 was the journey of reporter Robin Roberts cancer.  Robin let the world into her life after finding out that she had a cancer of the blood.  As loyal viewers we watched as she became scared and needed a bone marrow transplant to live longer than the two years the doctors had given her.  She got that chance when they discovered her sister’s marrow was a match and we saw Robin get sick and weak and sad and then recover beautifully and coming back as co-host of Good Morning America.  Robin Roberts’ story was one of bravery and she is certainly one of the ten most fascinating people of 2013 in our books!

Pope Francis | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

Pope Francis is an inspiring man to many and for that and many other reasons he has made the Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013 list!  Billions of Catholics follow his leadership and many others look up to him for so many reasons.  One of our favorite reasons this year is this quote from Pope Francis: “If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with good will, who am I to judge?”  This makes us happy!

Jennifer Lawrence | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

Jennifer Lawrence would have made our list of the ten most fascinating people not only this year but probably last year as well and most likely will be on our list again next year! She may even be our MOST fascinating person of this year for so many different reasons. Like Jennifer said in her interview on Wednesday (and I’m paraphrasing) she never knows what is going to fly out of her mouth, she thinks women judging other women is sick and it should be illegal to call someone FAT, and in ten years she sees herself married and starting a family, but can’t stand it when people ask her, “What makes you normal?” Jennifer Lawrence is a force to be reckoned with, already an Oscar Winning actress at 23, but also up for a Golden Globe award for her new movie American Hustle.

Hillary Clinton | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

So, number one, The MOST Fascinating Person of 2013…Hillary Clinton!!!  Barbara’s pick for the most fascinating person of 2013 was a good one, we think!  Everyone wants to know her plans in the government and will she run for President?  And soon?  She told Barbara Walters that she is still undecided, but wants to worry about what is going on now in the country, not what she will do in the future!  Would Hillary be on your list this year?
