Every year, Barbara Walters releases her list of the ‘Most Fascinating People of the Year.’ The 2011 list includes a couple of people you could probably guess would be on the list.

It also includes more than a few people that will make you scratch your head and ask “did they change the meaning of the word ‘fascinating’?” (Yes, the Kardashians are on the list.)

This year’s list includes every single member of the Kardashian Klan (though thankfully they count as only one entry)  ’X Factor’ head honcho Simon Cowell, Royal relative Pippa Middleton, Donald Trump, ‘Modern Family’ stars Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and singer Katy Perry. What, no Ryan Gosling? The internet will not be pleased.

The number one pick won’t be revealed until the show airs on December 14. Any guesses? Let us know below. (Our pick is “No No No Cat.”)
