The Kardashians Make Barbara Walters' 'Most Fascinating People of 2011'

the kardashians It's that time of the year again. Seasonal snow is on its way and the holiday lights are making their big debut, but most importantly, it's time for Barbara Walters to unveil her annual 10 Most Fascinating People list.

And it looks like the first family of reality TV -- the Kardashians -- made the cut. The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' stars Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian and sisters Kourtney and Khloe all made Walters' list.

After raking in a reported $65 million in 2010, launching a new clothing line for Sears, airing a four-hour wedding special, having one of the most talked about divorce scandals of the year and making headlines on a daily basis, it looks like the Kardashians not only fascinate Walters, but they also fascinate the public.

The Kardashians will have a bit of reality TV company. Music mogul and 'The X Factor' judge Simon Cowell made the list, as well as businessman -- and 'The Apprentice' star -- Donald Trump.

Continuing on with the TV stars trend, 'Modern Family's' Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet made Walters' list, as well as one of the stars of the royal wedding -- Pippa Middleton.

Pippa may not be a TV star yet, but the American public became infatuated with Kate's little sister after she turned heads down the aisle in her skin-tight, white dress. The public's fascination with Pippa Middleton eventually spawned an 'E! True Hollywood Story' and a TLC special, 'Crazy About Pippa.'

Rounding out her list is Yankees captain Derek Jeter and record-breaking singer Katy Perry, who most certainly ruled the airwaves in 2011.

Of course, we won't find out who Walters' No. 1 most fascinating person will be until the show airs.

Do you have any guesses as to who it could be? Let us know in the comments.

The 90-minute special, 'Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011' will air on Dec. 14 at 9:30PM ET on ABC.

If anyone is interested, there's a petition @ http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/no-more-kardashian.html They're already up to over 177,000 signatures for "No More Kardashians". I'm not sure, but I think it's ending today.

Looks like I won't be watching Barbara's show this year. I can't believe she thinks that the KarTrashians are "Most Fascinating". Just the mention of their name makes me deeply disgusted.

Folks---you may not like the Kardashians, but they are NOT stupid people. They are smart like foxes. I do believe their time has about run it's course, but Rob K on DWTS certainly had a huge fan base, and he actually go to be quite a good dancer. He has a big ol' butt like his sister Kim. and why?! is Khloe such a giant?! Just wondering if anyone knows. her parents were small people.

I ask you, Barbara Walters---WHY?! Donald Trump?!???! He is thee puke of all pukes. You bolster his ego at the mere mention of his name, whiling turning my stomach. He is an arrogant putz. He had no intentions of running for president, and you know it. He is an attention *****. Pleeease, cancel him! and while I am at it...The View would do well to get rid of that snarly little blond. She gets her knickers in a twist over the damndest things. That girl needs a chill pill. Guaranteed if Palin would have kept her on her list of BFFs, she would have left the View in a heartbeat.

Barbarab Walters, how much did you get paid to put K family on your most fascinating list?
Time for you to go if you have lost your common sense.

Why--these people are a total whaste of time. The fact that they are on anybody's radar is a joke. What will it take for these people to go away.

We are trying to get this freak show to go away. And then Barbara put them on her most fascinating people. What the hell was she thinking - what is fascinating about 3 hos and a baby. Dont think I will watch The View anymore or her Specials!
