Barbara Walters 10 Most Fascinating
December 16, 2011 by staff
Barbara Walters 10 Most Fascinating, Barbara Walters’ list of ’10 Most Fascinating People of 2011′ has arrived, and while many of us might be less than impressed by her choices, that says less about the ‘fascinating people’ themselves and more about our ‘reality’ obsessed culture as a whole. Perhaps what’s more sad than this list of ‘fascinating’ people is the notion that America probably actually is fascinated by the 10 individuals Babs chose.
The full list consists of The Kardashians, Simon Cowell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, Derek Jeter, Donald Trump, Katy Perry and Pippa Middleton.
Even Walters herself admitted that her decision to include the Kardashians over other public figures was “controversial.”
“You don’t really act. You don’t sing. You don’t dance,” Walters began. “You don’t have any — forgive me — any talent.”
Kim spoke up, defending her family’s right to fame.
Having talent is overrated, she said: “It’s more of a challenge for you to go on a reality show and get people to fall in love with you for being you.”
Ugh. Perhaps we can propose a counter list of 2011′s 10 Least Influential People — For Good and For Ill:
1. Charlie Sheen
After quite a ruckus at the start of 2011 for his shenanigans and bizarre behavior, Sheen is no longer “WINNING”. (Unless you consider making it onto this list of Least Influential People winning, but you shouldn’t!)
2. Harold Camping
Otherwise known as the “Doomsday Prophet of 2011″ Camping predicted that on May 21, 2011, Christ would return to Earth, the righteous would fly up to heaven and that five months of fire, brimstone and plagues would follow. On May 21st, if you don’t remember, that turned out to not happen.
3. Whitney Cummings
While many of us can appreciate a TV show that”s “so bad it’s good” Cummings’ self-titled sitcom is the kind of show that’s just so-bad-it-just-hangs-there-lifeless-and-boring.
4. Nicole Scherzinger
While moonlighting as a reality show judge has reinvigorated the careers of stars such as Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, that is not the case with Nicole Scherzinger, the most generic woman in television.
