(Newser) – Next Wednesday we'll learn who Time has anointed its Person of the Year (currently leading the readers' poll: Bernie Sanders), but America will have to hold its breath for two more weeks before learning who Barbara Walters has deemed the Most Fascinating. She'll announce that person during her ABC News "Most Fascinating People" special on Dec. 17 at 9:30pm ET, but she yesterday revealed some of the 10 people who made the cut this year. Per ABC News: actor Bradley Cooper; comedians Amy Schumer and Tracy Morgan; ballerina Misty Copeland; would-be president Bernie Sanders; UFC champ Ronda Rousey; and designer Donna Karan. (Here's who took the top spot last year.)
