Here they are… Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013. Nine of 10, since Barbara reveals her No. 1 most-fascinating pick on the TV special (Dec. 18).

Here are her other picks:

  • ABC anchor Robin Roberts
  • Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence
  • The stars of Duck Dynasty
  • Singer Miley Cyrus
  • Pope Francis
  • Prince George
  • Long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad
  • Kimye (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West)
  • NSA leaker Edward Snowden

The Pope and Snowden appear to be the frontrunners for Time magazine’s Person of the Year, with Cyrus leading in the readers’ vote. Who’s Barbara’s No. 1?

This will be Walters’ last Most Fascinating special, because she’s retiring next year.
