Barbara Walters’ ’10 Most Fascinating People’ Includes Robin Roberts, Idiots

barbara-walters-300Each year, Barbara Walters lists the “10 Most Fascinating People” and every year, it’s sort of stupid. The latest installment continues that trend. Walters’ list includes people who are truly fascinating — like Robin Roberts and Edward Snowden — and a variety of people who are definitely not.

In fact, this year’s 10 Most Fascinating People list already includes more than 10 people, and Walters doesn’t even name the 10th until her TV special airs on December 18. One of the “people” is “Kimye,” an inane nickname that teens and idiots use to refer to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Great work, Barbara. Another one of the “people” is the entire cast of Duck Dynasty. Then there’s Jennifer Lawrence, Miley CyrusPrince George, Diana Nyad and Pope Francis.

By our count that means Walters’ entire list features only three actually interesting people. However, we’re not going to get too upset about it. The only thing worse than stupid end of the year awards/honors/lists is getting mad about stupid end of the year awards/honors/lists.
