It’s that time of the year, again. That time of the year when I develop amnesia as I come up with my top “______” of 2012. I can’t remember what was hot last year, let alone, back in the Spring! Anyway, Barbara Walters is out with her partial list of the Most Fascinating people of 2012. I have not looked at her list, yet, except to see Gabby Douglas’ name. She will not reveal her most fascinating. That, of course, has to be saved for her TV special on December 12th.
Here is what I have come up with. Keep in mind, this is a list of people that were newsworthy in 2012, not necessarily the best people alive! Barbara says she will not include any criminals in this year’s list.
When we look back on the year 2012, here are 12 people I think we will remember as making a splash:
2) Gabby Douglas
3) Ryan Lochte
4) Mitt Romney
5) The Mayans
6) Kristen Stewart
7) New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
8) Whitney Houston & Family (especially Bobbi Kristina)
9) Channing Tatum
10) The Twinkie
11) Todd Akin
12) E. L. James
Was this year boring?! We had the Olympics, a Presidential election, and I couldn’t think of 12 fascinating things from 2012???
What do you think?
