Kim and Kanye (better known as Kimye) have found themselves on Barbara Walters' "Most Fascinating People" of 2013 list. While the names have been released by Walters, the exact order of "importance" will have to wait until her television special airs later this year.
Other famous people joining Kimye on Walters' annual list include Jennifer Lawrence, Edward Snowden, Miley Cyrus, Prince George, the cast of 'Duck Dynasty,' swimmer Diana Nyad, 'Good Morning America' host Robin Roberts, and Pope Francis. All of them will be part (in some fashion) of Walters' 1.5 hour television special where she will explain why she chose each one.
Kim and Kanye are fascinating in many ways -- but it will be interesting to see why Walters has placed them on her list. Many believe this could be Walters' final list before her rumored retirement in 2014. Also rumored? The New York Daily News reports that Walters will likely be doing a top 10 most fascinating people of the past 20 years. Do you think Kim Kardashian or Kanye West will make that list?
