Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes. Pippa Middleton, Katy Perry, and the Kardashians are just a few names that have placed on Barbara Walters's 10 Most Fascinating People of the year list. Hear who else made the cut and who we think might take the top spot in PopSugar Rush! Pippa Middleton managed to steal the show from sister Kate at the epic royal wedding in April, Katy Perry sang her way to the top of the charts with a record-breaking five singles from one album, and the Kardashian clan captured everyone's attention for Kim's August nuptials and separation just 72 days later. Barbara Walters announced today that all three have made it onto her list of the most fascinating people of 2011. They're joined by some of TV's heavy hitters, like Simon Cowell, who brought The X Factor to the US, and two of Modern Family's men, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, who helped the show earn it's second Emmy in a row for Outstanding Comedy Series. But who will Barbara crown king or queen of this year's most fascinating? "Our pick for the most fascinating person of the year" Political figures have topped the list for the past two years, but perhaps Ms. Walters will lean toward the Hollywood crowd and go for Oprah, who signed off from her show after 25 years. We also think Beyoncé or Jay-Z has a good chance — they announced they're expecting in such a fun way, plus Jay collaborated with Kanye West on one of the most talked about albums of the year. Let us know who you think will come in first, and be sure to watch Barbara's special on December 14th on ABC to see if you're right!
