The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2006

Well, it's that time of the year folks: Office holiday parties, regifting and the highlight of my year, Barbara Walters counting down the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2006. Sure it's hard to wrap, but this annual special is truly the best gift I get all year.

So who does Barbara think is fascinating this year? Once again the list is bizarre and haphazard just like every year. I'm sure you can't wait to find out so I'll get right to it:

Sacha Baron Cohen, also known as Borat:
This interview should be really interesting because when Sacha was promoting his film, Borat, he would only be interviewed in character, so I’m eager to see what this guy is really like. Maybe he is in fact fascinating, I guess I’ll find out tomorrow night at 10 p.m.

Patrick Dempsey: Fascinating? Perhaps. Hottie? Most definitely. I’ll be honest, he’s the only reason I’m watching this special, then again I’m sure that’s the reason they chose him in the first place.

Andre Agassi: Really? He’s fascinating? I didn’t even know people cared about him any more. Did Barbara climb into a time machine and set it for 1992? Just because a guy retires from his job, doesn’t make him fascinating.

While we’ll have to wait and see who THE most fascinating person of 2006 is until the the show airs, here are the rest of the people to be featured on Barbara’s special: Anna Wintour, Jay Z, Joel Osteen, John Ramsey, Terri Irwin, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Who do you think is going to the most fascinating person of 2006? Who did Barbara leave off the list? And didn't Barbara Walter retire like two years ago? What's she still doing on my TV?
