Barbara Walters has announced eight of the ten people on her list of 2010's most fascinating people.
The cast of Jersey Shore -- Snookie...?
Well ... I can understand Barbara's choice of Sandra Bullock, after her graceful endurance of her painful divorce. My goodness, what an elegant woman. And I suppose Jennifer Lopez was chosen because ... Hmmmm ... I can't think of a reason. I would imagine Sarah Palin was chosen because she seems to be a survivor, and Betty White simply because she has survived. The choice of Kate Middleton is obvious -- she has caught the brass ring, well, the sapphire and diamond one, to be specific.
Justin Bieber? Justin Bieber? Is he/she a boy or a girl? I can't tell. He reminds me of Sally Fields as Gidget, except he's prettier. Oh, I know, I know, all the tweens and teens love him, and he is very talented, but really is he one of the most fascinating people of 2010? What on earth is going to happen to him when he hits his 20s and 30s? Will he turn into Leif Garrett? I hope not. And Snookie? Snookie is fascinating? Pretty slim pickings.
If you had your choice, who would you choose as the top ten -- or even the top five -- most fascinating people of 2010? For a start, I would choose the person who invented the robot vacuum cleaner.
But ... Snookie...?
