(Newser) – Barbara Walters continues her trend of choosing some pretty fluffy people for her annual "Most Fascinating" list: Last year, the Kardashians, Pippa Middleton, Donald Trump, and Katy Perry made the cut; this year, she selected UK boy band One Direction, Fifty Shades of Grey author EL James, Ben Affleck, and Seth MacFarlane. The other choices, which she announced yesterday on The View, are slightly more serious: Chris Christie, Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas, and Hillary Clinton. The year's most fascinating person will, of course, be announced when the Walters special airs Dec. 12 on ABC, the New York Post reports.
