Here’s a look at the list of Barbara Walters' 'Most Fascinating People' of 2013, yes that's right! It’s that time of the year again! When only Barbara Walters decides what it actually means to be that one most fascinating celeberty. For the past 20 years, her 'ABC Specials’ “Most Fascinating People of the Year” shows,have been on since 1993.
This one in particular is huge, simply because this will be the last “Most Fascinating” special for Baba, who said last May that she would be retiring from ABC TV next year. Then again, she's been giving us a heads up since 1999, but it looks like "God", isn't looking to be Baba's
last big exclusive, at least not quite yet.
To make the list on this Baba's last big year, it seems you either had to have a big resurge in your career, like Catholic leader Pope Francis,the ultimate leader of the Catholic Church for redefining acceptance in his religion, with simply such a powerful voice behind it, that he's able to open up a lot more minds and help form a more accepting world...Amen!
Or Miley Cyrus,that crazy Bangerz singer, for twirking her way into our lives this year. From SNL to the VMAs as well as the AMAs, Miley used every performance opportunity she had to prove that Hannah Montana is dead and isn’t coming back.
With only her bow and arrow, there's an incredibly likable and normal power house cupid, Jennifer Lawrence,who's definitely fascinating. A Hollywood sweet heart, who won an Oscar and starred in one of the biggest movie franchises ever this year.
Speeking of a powerfull union, it seems that anything that genious, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian this year seemed almost to be fascinating. Even their baby's name was inspired by a compass. Later they got engaged in a baseball stadium right in front of TV cameras, and West continued his quest to prove he's the greatest at everything while everybody else keeps proving that the Kardashians are just the oposite. It's simply a fascinating combination.
Arguably though, the most famous baby in the world, has to be Duchess Kate and Prince William’s baby George, the heir to the British throne. that is assuming that Baba gets an interview with the most famous baby in the world, because that really would be fascinating.
Definitely fascinating, Diana Nyad, in her fifth attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida at age 64, Diana Nyad was without the protection of even a shark cage, or a boat.
The courageous Robin Roberts, of "Good Morning America", on the day Robin revealed her illness on air. The National Marrow Donor Program experienced an 1,800 percent increase in donors. She came back on the air in February after receiving a bone marrow transplant for myelodysplastic syndrome, just five years after recovering from a public battle with breast cancer.
Then theres Edward Snowden, that whistle-blowing turn coat, who sure got a lot of people talking about the secrets in our country, even though he isn’t allowed here anymore, unless Baba gets an exclusive one on one.
Until it's air date, the final and “most fascinating” spots normally are kept under wraps, when Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of the 2013. On Dec. 18 at 8:30 p.m. Central on ABC.
